For this cartoon, I decided to do something that a few people have mentioned might save me sometime, and you know what? It did. Basically it just involves taking my initial sketch and scanning it onto a layer, and tracing, coloring that right in the program on my Wacom tablet. Now the tedious task of tracing, inking, and THEN coloring in Photoshop, has been brought down to (2) steps. Wonderful!
One day I might do a photo montage of this process, or "remember" it in Photoshop and play it back. I think there's a way to do that.
Anyway...no rough this time. The rough is incorporated right there into this drawing!
