A quick post showing what the pencils and inks look like for a Sally Forth Sunday page.
First the pencils…
Then the inks…
Lettering is laid in after I scan the artwork and make a digital file out of it.
For a complete list of the art supplies I use,
check out the following post from JimKeefe.com, Comics – Tools of the Trade.
John Romita’s artwork is pretty much a staple of romance comics from the 1950s on, and for good reason.
When Romita took over drawing Spider-Man from Steve Ditko, it was inevitable his strength for the Sturm und Drang of romance comics would be thrown into the mix.
The following examples are from the Spider-Man newspaper strip.
So when I needed to up the ante for Hil and Faye in the March 25, 2017 Sally Forth strip I leaned heavily on Romita for inspiration.
