The robots and "Exos" in Bionic Dues go through a five-stage process. First they are sketched by one of a variety of artists. Then they are inked (have their lines cleaned up) by one of a couple of artists (typically Genna or our own Daniette "Blue" Wood). Then they are colored by Catherine. Then animated by me. Then lit by Blue.
On the subject of the lighting, Blue created a pretty cool tutorial on how to do that, and we thought we'd share it with anyone else who might be interested. Enjoy!
