Johnson steps in much like a computer graphics artist on a film might.
“Once Don finishes the line art, I begin texturing, toning and adding effects to suit,” Johnson said. “The purpose is add a lifelike element to an illustrated world. The term I like to use to describe it is ‘believably unbelievable.' Also, we try to build the pages with everybody's collaborative part in mind.”
Privett officially serves as letterer, but provides additional input as well.
“We each help push each other further in terms of what we bring to the table,” she said. “I also serve as an extra set of eyes to catch mistakes, and give input on creative decisions.”
Rosencrans exhibited with Charles Martin and publisher Literati Press at last year's Planet Comicon, but it's the first appearance there for Privett.
“I'm honestly not sure what to expect,” she said. “I've never been to a convention this large before, and surrounded by so many talented people. I'm mostly hoping to just have a really great time and promote the comic as much as possible, and buy cool stuff!”
