Draw like the pros!

This video shows the drawing technique of French comics artist (though I suppose that'd be BD artist, since he's French) Emmanual Guibert. This is the technique he used on his forthcoming English-language comic, Alan's War.

This video has been making the rounds on a lot of comics blogs, but maybe you don't read a lot of comics blogs, right? The video is just a bout a minute long, and it's fairly mind blowing. Artists, and the methods they use to achieve the effects they desire, really can be magical. Enjoy.

Wow! That was incredible. I was wondering how he was going to come back and add ink, but I did not see that coming. Neat!

Wow, that was awesome! :)

Um, what exactly was he doing? And what's the technique called? Did he invent it? Yeah, that was really cool, but now I have questions!

Thanks for the link, Julian! I'd seen that before, or at least I'd seen a video of him drawing another monster, but could never remember where I'd seen it. This time I saved it to my del.icio.us page for future reference.

Cheers!
