Today's post comes from JH Williams III. For those who don't know, Williams has been doing the amazing art on Detective Comics. With issue #860, Williams wrapped his duties. Over on his blog, he posted up the process he used to create the cover for his final issue.


Stage one is ink, paint, and color pencil



Stage two is colorizing the ink portion, tweaking some of it that I had felt needed it, and then digitally melding the painted area with the colored ink line work for the transitional style effect. I did some very minor color enhancement to the painted area as well.



Stage three is applying the text treatment
