Dr. Doom... again. by AlexGarner Dr. Doom... again. by AlexGarner
The quality kind of sucks because this is from a crappy photocopy since I don't own the originals.

Long before I painted a Dr. Doom trading card for Upper Deck, I pencilled and inked a traditional one. Here's the basic way I went about it.

They're really good!
I can never get past the first stage without inking it. I don't believe in cross-hatching.

His face looks quite creepy in the first stage without any detail but his eyes, rather like the Phantom of the Opera.

Alex how do you figure out where to put the thick dark shades? I've been trying to study comic style, and there are some things that I can't figure out Y-Y

im a nobody but her goes what ive learned... Most comic guys study or reference movies. the reason being what i term as "movie lighting". This is where the director uses a combination of solid foreground lighting, meaning a nearby lamp in close proximity to the actor, mixed with lighting in the background to create the mood or depth of a scene. Black and white photography does it also just without color. i suggest trying out both and see which one works best for you. Hope this helps.

Well, that's kind of broad. Can you be more specific? Generally if I bleed out from a black area I'll go thick to thin. If it's a contour, that's a different approach.

its about the inner shadows. The contours i get, but the thick inner shadows is something I'm still figuring. I don't know how you pencil guys do it, especially you. Y_Y

Well for me, a lot of what I did was from studying other comic artists. On Doom here, he's mostly made of metal so I tried use metallic-looking textural shading. If he were made of skin, that thick inner shadow probably wouldn't be there. Here it's more of a trick than it is realistic. To be completely honest, I would probably render this piece quite differently now as I really never established a clear light source. You should check out Kevin Nowlan's and Adam Hughes' work. They're guys who know how to do it incredibly well.

Sorry if this sounds unhelpful. Your question covers years of trial and error so it's a bit hard for me to explain.
