The David Story: Drawing Time-Lapse Video 01 by eikonik The David Story: Drawing Time-Lapse Video 01 by eikonik
This is 4-hours of drawing the "fine lines," condensed down to about 4 minutes - to show you a little bit of the process of drawing The David Story.

See the video here:

The Process:

Creating a page for The David Story is a multi-staged endeavor. I first layout the flow of the text and then fill up the page with very rough sketches of the people and action associated with the text - trying to get a general sense of movement across the page.

Next, I refine the roughs with a more defined set of sketches and fix visual or flow discontinuities. This stage may take several hours alone, sketching and re-sketching, to get at just what I am going for.

Once reaching a satisfactory sketch, I then do a layer of fine lines over the sketch. The fine lines will serve as the basis for the details of the image - defining what will ultimately guide the final stages for coloring and texturizing.

When the fine lines are done a general "flatting" is added - putting in flat blocks of colors to fill in the fine lines, much like coloring in a coloring book. And then, finally, comes the shading, lighting, highlighting, color adjustment, and texturizing of the flats, creating the finished appearance of the page.
