Digital Comic Car Caricature Cartoons

Another example of the way we do the digital comic style caricature cartoons, from a 13+ series of car icons done for a car forum website.

We start with our base template for the first car of the series, and draw the body in blue pencil.  I use 0.5mm blue leads, such as Staedtler Mars micro color,  in a mechanical pencil.

This pencil can be erased, but the coolest thing is that you just ink straight over it and don't have to erase it once inked.  That saves a step that damages the black ink and paper. Scanning in RGB allows you to drop out the blue channel and are left with just the black inked lines.

This is the same way we have done our Heavy Metal Garage Webcomic.

That is scanned and then colored in Photoshop, using a Wacom tablet to airbrush most of the colour.

We can be contacted for freelance work at Art & Technology.
