I've inked the cover for my next comic Mount a Rescue. (See the pencils here.)
Here's a detail:
I began colouring today. I decided to paint the back ground with acrylics, and do the figures in Photoshop.
In order to do this I put the acrylics on, and then tidied up all the colour that went inside the lines...
Finally, added the digital colours to the figures...
Pleased with the final effect. I like the mix of the digital and traditional.

My upcoming comic is called Mount a Rescue.
A title I like the sound of, should it really be "Mount a rescue... mission"? Is it a mispronunciation of Mountain rescue? In any case, when it came to thinking about what to put on the cover, I had to consider the fact that last year I put out But a Dream!, which has a mountaineer on the cover.
So that was out. I decided after a while on pulling four images from the stories inside, maybe a bit like the style of the Kirby painting I did.
Then I thought about those movie posters with a plethora of characters for the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the Marvel superhero films. I was always amazed they make movie posters that look like 1990s Marvel comics.
So I decided to do something in the style of those for Mount a Rescue's cover.
Here are the pencils, completed today.
