Suicide Angels

Ink and ink wash — 4 pages — 2004

This was part of the final project I did for my illustration degree. The project included other storyboards as well as character designs and portraits. The car interior is based on the 1995 Honda Civic I was driving at the time.

Each of these pages was done by hand on 11x14 Beinfang bristol board, and the shading was done with water and india ink, without any kind of digital processing. That seems completely crazy to me now, because ink wash has no undo button or white out! But that's how everyone did illustrations before computers: you just had to have a steady hand and nerves of steel. Maybe you ruined a few pages and had to start over, but projects also went a lot faster because you couldn't re-work them. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I don't know!
