Thumbnails

For those who are curious of how a comic gets created in the world of Greg Fenton, here's a peek.



My thumbnails are always barren. I purposely leave out as much drawing detail as I can so that I can achieve the most spontaneity and richness in the designs when I actually sit down and draw them, rather than just trying to copy already tight thumbnail sketches. Most of what I try to accomplish with a thumbnail is the pacing of how the words are said and slight compositional ideas.

Believe it or not, this is the only preparation I take before I sit down to compose a comic of this simplicity. For more complex things, I might do a little more planning, but I like the Eskimo Amy comics to feel free and spontaneous.

Here are the thumbnails for the last three comics, they were all done on one piece of xerox paper.

Lately I've been practicing doing some realistic watercolour portraits, they've been coming out pretty interesting, perhaps I'll post some of them soon.
