The past year I’ve been rendering my work with markers and inking my own art. That meant I had a huge amount of control on the final look of my work. For this story, I’ll only be pencilling my work which is, in a way, liberating. It lets me focus on different things about my art and helps me solve some drawing problems with different approaches. I like the switch up — it helps me grow as an artist.
When solely pencilling, I automatically and subconsciously do different things. Visually, I don’t think this story will be a complete departure from what I’ve been doing recently, except for the change in tone and setting. It’s interesting how much diversity this alteration can bring to the look of my work.
I think Asrar’s work on Supergirl has been beautiful stuff, dynamic yet sensitive and full of character. DC are nuts to let him go, and I hope he’ll thrive over at Marvel.
(UPDATE: DC, it turns out, isn’t letting him go; the UXM work will be done in addition to his Supergirl work. Everyone wins!)
