I use to draw comic book characters in elementary school and high school, Drawing being looking at a picture (splash/cover page) and try to duplicate it without sketching, shapes or anything. God.... I open up my ten year old sketchbook and the anatomy of the characters were god awful.
I went to a comic book convention in Toronto this past year and it has fired up my passion for drawing. I have been slowing collecting comic books and have bought reference material and how to draw books from various sources.
I bought the necessary pencils and equipment. I have a couple of questions and I am hoping that somebody can help me out with this.
To start, I drew this picture of the joker with non photo blue pencils. (Scanned picture). After I did the initial sketching/anatomy of the picture, I read from my books to use my regular pencils to tightening my picture.
Am I suppose to use a light box or can I just use my pencil over the blue sketch??
Do I put a new piece of paper underneath the light box. The Book I am using is Bryan Hitch Ultimate Comic Studio. It mentions the light box but it does not give specific instruction on the process.
BTW-this is my first time drawing properly, I am not in a rush, I want to practice, practice and practice some more. So PLEASE critique my work so I can understand what is wrong with how I initially draw my characters.
