L’artiste Simone Bianchi parle de son travail sur la mini-série Thor & Loki: The Tenth Realm:
[quote]My process has changed over the past three-four years. When I started working with Grant Morrison and DC on “Shining Knight,” and after that with Marvel, I used to have a very complicated process. I started with very loose thumbnails with the basic layout of the page. Once I was done with that I was going to move into taking pictures for every single panel which is a colossal pain in the ass. [Laughs] It was extremely time consuming as you can imagine. When it comes to a cover you can do that, but when you have to draw twenty, twenty-two pages in five weeks, it’s a lot of work but I used to do that. With “Wolverine,” “Astonishing X-Men,” “Thor: For Asgard,” “X-Force” and my second “Wolverine” run I used to take a shitload of pictures. I have so many pictures in my computer you can barely count them.
Starting with “Thanos Rising,” for whatever reason – without even thinking about it too much – I completely quit the photographing process. Not only that I completely quit doing thumbnails as well. I started doing my breakdowns straight on the art boards. The time that was needed for me to redraw the thumbnails on a bigger scale with a lightbox on the final page, even that part of the process was so extremely time-consuming. It was just too much work. With “Thanos Rising,” I started reading the script and got the art board and started sketching out the breakdowns straight on the paper. When I had all twenty-two pages done I went through them, changed some little things and then I started to tighten the pencils. This helped me speed up my process so much. I was once able to do no more than fifteen pages a month. Maybe even less than that. Now I can handle twenty pages a month easily. All this was possible just because the process itself changed. It happens naturally. I didn’t have to think about it it just happened.[/quote]
