The collab this was made for is out, and I thought I'd share a bunch of snapshots of the process behind it. Merry (a few minutes early) Christmas! Hanukah! Holidays! Whatever it is that you celebrate! ;)
It all started out with the scan.
Discovered the Fireworks filter dropdown! :O
Worked on outlines in Flash. Imported images first for reference, later for background and color, and added detail.
I think I had 12 different layers at the end.
Getting rid of the fuzzy reference image outline lines with white outlines.
Just look at that detail. ;) Also see this post for images of the original sketches. That's all! I think it turned out pretty neat. That planned interactive Flash presentation with toggleable layers is still planned. Later.
