I was really excited when I got the pages for Nailbiter 14. All portion of it takes place underwater, and as I love snorkeling and swimming I was pretty excited too work on these pages. When I saw what Mike Henderson did here I was elated. Here's the break downs of how I tackled pages 10/11 from black and white to full color!
As always I start by laying out the flat colors
Next I add some basic textures and effects I use on Nailbiter along with some lighting/shadows
Finally I add more lighting effects over Mike's Line work to give it a nice underwater vibe!
Nailbiter 14 comes out tomorrow (7/1/15) go check it out some cool easter eggs in there along with a killer plot.
