Step By Step Through Lady Death: Apocalypse #1 With Artist Marc Borstel

Earlier this week, we brought you an interview with Lady Death: Apocalypse artist Marc Borstel where he talked about his process and influences, and even showed us some process artwork. Now, he's kindly extended that glimpse into his work by providing us with screenshots of his actual step by step creation of pages for Lady Death: Apocalypse #1. Far from being a closeted and retiring artist, Borstel takes us into the choices he makes on these pages and the digital aspects of his work, too.

8a435422fe8666fcc1e378cfc16c3f32_largeLady Death: Apocalypse heralds the return of the publishing company Boundless, and is currently funding for a modest sum on Kickstarter to bring back a fan favorite series. Because of Lady Death's legacy, the Kickstarter is not only able to guarantee that the first issue of the comic will be delivered to backers as early as February, but also provide a massive cache of rewards for backers from among the Lady Death archives of material. It's one of those situations when a publisher takes to crowdfunding and has the stock of an entire warehouse to provide support for backer interest–taking any sense of guesswork out of jumping onboard. Make sure to check out the Kickstarter as it enters its final week so as not to miss out. The campaign has even reached stretch goals already, adding to rewards.

Here are two parts of series artist Marc Borstel's page from Lady Death: Apocalypse #1 from sketch to inks:
