I wanted to give you guys a quick look at some of the concept art for Issue 2 of Suzi. You can see that it’s the same old, same old for poor Suzi.
I have some more articles that I will get scheduled this weekend, and I will discuss more about the creative process of how I took Suzi from concept to creation.
You can see the original art on the left, it is a fairly plain angle. I was focused more on scale, lighting and the lightning bolt effects more than the drama of the scene. Once I was able to get the colors and tone, as well as all the visual fx elements in place, I think went back and looked for the more dramatic angle. The first issue of Suzi was a great learning experience, but I think I was so focused on the technical side of the work, that I missed opportunities for more dramatic angles. I don’t regret this, as I did my best with what I knew. The old saying “You only know what you know” applies in art as well we life. This is why I am really looking forward to Planet of Peril. I get to use everything I learned from Issue 1 as the base to build on. It’s going to be alot of fun.
Until then, enjoy some of the alien power that Suzi will encounter!
