Here is a page Checkmate #21 from thumbnails to inks. My thumbnails here were done at about an inch
by and inch and a half and the rough was done full size on cheap 11x17 sketchbook paper.
With the rough, I was trying to nail down all the poses and locations before I got down to the
nitty-gritty so that the pencils are just lightboxed over, tightening up details and moving things
around on the page as I go to hopefully get the compositions to work, while trying to leave it open
enough to still have fun when in comes time to ink.
To see the complete feature on Chris's art, with many more images and comments,
get a copy of Rough Stuff#7 from TwoMorrows!
