Alriiigghhtt, another process journallllll.
The image above is an example of the two ways that I treat Victors hair. I like both and normally just decide between the two based on how I feel about each individual image. For this one I really liked the line art and wanted to do a solid black fill so I could preserve it. When I do full pencil shading on hair, it largely erases the initial lines. After I finished the panel however, I felt like additional work on the hair would be nice, so I ended up fully shading it. I saved both versions just to compare and contrast.
As you can see with the interior of the temple, I drew the original image without people in the benches. In my brain this was easier (???) because I have a lot of difficulty with perspective and sizing. After drawing the benches and having their spacing all laid out I could then figure out how the crowd should look and popped them in in photoshop. My brother was watching me do this over my should and later told me I am insane. Hhaha.
Is my level of neurosis a problem at this point?? Who knows. ┐(￣・o・)┌
