So this is the final artwork , ready to go to be silkscreen.
This is the stages to creating the artwork.
Pencil art is scanned into photoshop the blue lines removed by doing level adjustments , I then also add my additional text and make sure the image remains balanced and nothing is out of place.
First pass colour work , this is done mainly as flat colors, I drew inspiration from old comic books for their vibrant use of colour, I wanted this poster to pop. After I had got all the basic colour work in and was satisfied I then duplicated my original cleaned up pencil art and added it as a multiply layer to darken the lines and to bring the image back to looking like a panel from a comic book.
Then last bit of work was straight forward coloring and final adjustments. JOB DONE!
