Steven Universe #7 - “Car Trouble”
Here’s my third guest comic for the Steven Universe comic from boomstudios! I’m really happy with how this one turned out, it’s the first one to deviate from the setting of Steven’s room and the stormy pallet was fun to work with. Also I’m happy that among my guest comics I’ve managed to give focus to just about everyone in the main cast.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about my watercolor process, so I took more WIP photos in an attempt to show how I layer my colors. It varies from project to project, but for this comic I started with highlights since the light source was important in this comic. Then I laid down the base shadows, then the base colors, then darker shadows, and then final touches. In summary, it’s a series of washes applied in a specific order. But this is just my system and is by no means a flawless or the only way to use watercolors! It’s the method I’ve found works best for me in making watercolor comics.
