Stage 3: After doing a basic ink outline, I erase the pencil beneath. Notice the smudge near her cheek (that's what I get for not cleaning my eraser.) I really need to find a pressure sensitive pen so my linework can be more varied-it sucks having to do the varying thickness yourself. Maybe someday I will wise up!
Stage 4: I use a Sharpie Fine Point marker to fill in the big areas of black that are too big to do in a thinner tip. I leave some room at the edges because the marker has a tendency to spread and bleed if too close to an outline's edge.
Stage 5: I use the Pilot v7 to do the outline and make her bolder, while using the v5 to do the thinner lines and detail. Generally now I just tighten up the image and fill in the gaps I left for the Sharpie/enhance the detail here or there. Also cleaned up some smudges and other small markings via photoshop. This is the final stage for my inking.
Stage 6: Here is the basic coloring template I'll be working with. I did some shine on the hair and eyelids as well, but it's pretty solid, basic stuff at this point. The final stage is just throwing in some color detail and adding a last layer of detail on Photoshop (I use 6.0 presently because I am a Caveman, you see.)
Stage 7: The last layer is a light grey detail here or there, and also a sort of ghostly blue outline around Angie's white skin (It works for some reason.) I also added a little detail here or there color-wise, cleaned up some spots, and darkened the entire image to make it stand out a bit more. So, there you have it, folks, seven degrees of Atomic Angie from conception to gooey, sloppy, disgusting birth from my Pencil/Pen/Photoshop womb!
