Eye of The World 32 by Laemeur Eye of The World 32 by Laemeur
Cover for issue 32 of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time: The Eye of The World from Dynamite Entertainment. Unlike the last few covers, I decided to try this one with open linework and I sent along a shadow-guide for the colourist. Any colourists out there? Is that stepping on toes? I'm curious to know how y'all feel about that.

Wow, this is brilliant. I've never worked with shadow guides like these but I have zero problem with that!

Beautiful craftsmanship, bud. Very well done. What size do you work?

Thanks very kindly. This was all digital, so size is variable. I start these out with a very small template, about 750 pixels high, finish-up up the pencils at 1100x1700, then ink with no anti-aliasing at 2200x3400, which is 11"x17" at 200dpi. Then I vectorize that and scale it to the format required by the publisher.

Bloody hell. It's digital? I always assumed you used pen and ink. Brilliant work, mate. Very clear steady lines. Very very impressed.

As long as you were a bit flexible with it, I wouldn't mind. For instance, I'd be tempted to put more rim lighting along the arm, stuff like that. I like how the woman's face is in shadow. I think it would be most helpful on the part above where the light source isn't obvious. I guess it just depends on the ego of the colorist too, haha. I personally love suggestions and feedback, but I'm very new at coloring (in a professional capacity) so I appreciate all the help I can get.

Personally, I love shadow guides...mostly because once I set that layer to overlay or multiply, half of my work is already done ;P
