Behind-the-Scenes: Enrico Bertuccioli

In this edition of Behind-the-Scenes, Italian cartoonist Enrico Bertuccioli shows us his work process:

'The first step is to make a draft of the cartoon. If I have a clear and simple idea in mind (as in this case), I try to draw it directly on paper, and keep going until the final draft, not making any preliminary study of the subject. If the concept is more complex, I draw some drafts to study the elements that I will put together in the cartoon and then I use a light table to assemble them in the right position. Then I ink the draft and when the ink is dried up I erase the pencil lines. The inked drawing is scanned to be finally completed adding colors, textures, writings etc. using Photoshop.

I like this mix of traditional drawing and digital coloring. I think that this unembellished use of digital coloring that looks 'simple' fits perfectly with my clear line- style and I think the final result works very well.'
