ADVENTURE TIME #26
Sample page process

Script by Ryan North
Illustrated by Jim Rugg
Colors by Chris O’Neill
Letters by Steve Wands

Adventure Time #26 is the first of 4 issues that I illustrate (I was halfway through issue 28 when I wrote this). Here is the process that I used for #26. Each morning, I woke up, made coffee, petted the cats while coffee brewed. I drank a cup of coffee and sketched panels, figures, action, and page layouts directly on a print out of Ryan North’s scripts (which are delightful!). Then I taped a piece of paper on my drawing board (Strathmore Bristol 300 Series, 11 x 14, smooth surface). Ruled out borders based on the layout sketches using a Rapidograph (size: 1.20). Lightly drew the page with a non photo blue pencil (2 mm). I drew the original art at 125% of the print size. Then inked the page using Microns (sizes 01, 03, 05, 08). Finally scanned it, cleaned it up if necessary, and saved it as a 1200 dpi bitmap (uncompressed TIFF).
