You use SketchUp? If so, is it easy? Did you pay for it?

I do. I'm still learning. There are tons of helpful tutorials on Youtube. The program is free.

Hello Brian,
Just wondering how you use the SketchUp model in your art? Does it export to jpeg so you can print it/take it into PS and work over it?
Thanks! :)

I usually have my layout open in PS in the BG, and take the SketchUp window and align it so that the dimensions of the window fit the panel in question, then I get the shot I want, open preview and do a screen shot using the grab tool (I don't like using the export command as I lose the proper panel dimensions). I composite the the Sketchup backgrounds along with the rough layout (which is blown up to proper comic page size). I convert the image from greyscale to either a very light blue or pink depending on the printer ink levels. I drag and free transform it all onto my page template (which one I use depends on the publisher), then print it all out at a reduced opacity directly onto the Bristol using an Epson 1400. This then becomes my "underdrawing", and I draw over that.

So do you use the push/pull to build the basic structures and then find the cosmetic stuff (windows, fire escape, etc) online and add them to your shapes?

These look great!
