A Quick Process
Before I started this, I wrote out a bunch of gags/scenarios that one might encounter at a house party.
Then I drew this super-quick scribble to put down the layout. I don't often show this very first step, as it's not very pretty, but it is an important one, nonetheless. (I drew this late at night on a pad I keep next to the bed. Often I get ideas as I'm falling asleep.)
Roughs and the Sketch
I like to work my sketches up, from very rough (above) to tighter (below)...
... to a pretty tight, polished sketch (below)...
... and with that good to go, I start on the inks.
This was drawn straight in with the Cintiq, just using a hard brush in Photoshop.
Then I block out the main areas to make it easier to select, and also start establishing the depth and tone.
From there it's just a matter of painting in and tweaking the colour until it's done. Below is the final art again. Please click for a closer view.
