Rosita Y Conchita Final Colors

Finally, in Photoshop, I add textures, shadows and lighting effects along with the final text.

Then it's off to the printers, but the process doesn't end there.  The printers usually have some technical stuff for us to change, so we have to go back and forth until everything is fit as a whistle, sharp as a thistle.  Then we play the waiting game.  When we get tired of the waiting game we play Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Rosita Y Conchita Clean-Up Samples

I take the roughs and clean them up in Illustrator with flat colors.

Rosita Y Conchita Color Comps

In Photoshop, I drop rough colors into the layouts to get an idea of the color scheme. 

Rosita Y Conchita Rough Pages

I roughly sketch out the layouts of each page first in pencil, then I scan the images and give them a second pass in Photoshop.
