Cherry Bomb WIP Part 1 by robinmitchell Cherry Bomb WIP Part 1 by robinmitchell
This is for my buddy Wil Caligan's Cherry Bomb comic. Not sure when it's slated to be released but I shall keep Y'all posted.
I dont usually talk about my process but I thought it might be useful to someone :) So a bit about the process : I first ruffed out the entire concept on 8.5 x 11 which i didn't post, then i scanned it into PS3 where I dropped in two separate perspective grids on it. the firt being the bg perspective and secondly the perspective of the bike. the reason being is i didn't want the bike to sit exactly parallel to the side walk. yes it's a little more work (but not too much) to get the perspective to turn just a little bit ( correctly) but it's worth it, plus it makes the piece a little more dynamic and draws your eyes to the girl and bike as well.
I then printed out the two different grids and drew the bike on a separate sheet about 6 inches wide. I then printed the bg grid about 4 inches tall and 8 to a page so I could explore different bg ideas. I think it was the fourth thumbnail before i found this bg you see here. then i comp the two together in PS3 and whamo this is what you get.
I hope that was clear and I hope you dig :)

ps hey guys,
this is a pinup I made for two great artists and friends of mine:
Randy Green :iconrandygreen:
Will Caligan :icontrialsze:

Insane.
Total perspective devotion and exactness, compositional use of space, spatial use of the composition...
This hurts, man... this hurts...
I am not worthy :no::no::no::no::no::no::no::no::no::no:

Not at all... I'm far from kind - I'm envious...
But still, my pleasure, Sir.

I would have been too lazy to draw the bike off a different vp. It does look good though. That's a weird bike design. It looks like it would tip forward really easy.

Shanks for the kind werds! i put the more vertical to offset the weight when braking so tipping would be diminished. oh well it's just a drawing :)
