Remember kids : if you can't make pretty designs, at least make pretty lines!

What can blue do for you?

Here's a walkthrough of my "finished" line art process as it stands. The proportional errors should have been corrected in step one, but as usual I got ahead of myself. I'll do my best to make amends in the color pass, which you'll see in my next WIP :)

1. grayscale thumbnails in Photoshop
2. convert image to pure cyan with channel mixer, print w/ color inkjet
3. tighten with blue pencil over printout
4. black pass with Verithin pencil/hb lead
5. scan, hue/sat out the blue/cyan
6. multiply line art, tweak levels

Shuffled the figures around so they don't look as bunched.

Cool I thought I was the only person who printed out np blues and finished them off by hand.
