Kindling page with no narration text (other than the last panel). <3 LOVE my new project! lovelovelove
Kindling is totally different from Macchina, which pleases me. It’s post-apocalyptic, set in the USA and follows Bierce, who is surveying the ruins of the midwest. I’m pretty much enamored with this story. ITS GONNA BE SWEET. We have plans to make this a webcomic in 2012 (oh god, i will have two @___@). I’m trying to finish this 15 page prologue to have preview booklets at SPX!
Whoah, bebe, this is lookin super good!!!
What else would I be drawing at 2am? Phone cam close-up pic of a 2x2 inch panel
It is taking me a million Years to pencil the simplest things and I don’t know why
Maybe I’m broken
These pencils still need refining, badly, but I already like their gestures/posturing
sketch of melissa… yup.
This is the page that’s going up Monday. Thought I’d post the unaltered inking since I missed updates this past week.
So yeah, these are untouched lines. I darkened the blue pencil lines in this version so you could actually see them. I have to fix places where lines wobble excessively and overlap.
In the first panel I gotta do some Photoshop trickery because I failed to realize when penciling that Fran’s body is positioned way too high, and she needs to be lowered. She’s about two heads taller, not TWICE as tall as Kelly. Geez, good job, me.
Inkin these pencils, listening to Wizard People, Dear Readers for first time with Mr.Shabet
Inking is understandably disturbed I’m laughing so hard
But I will push through the laughter
I’m only kinda in love with inking this man … <3
Put this on Google Plus too, but they don’t do big images yet :( inking page one of this crossover guest comic. Gotta get page 2 done soonish, work-intensive week. Gotta stay on that work train!
This panel has since has a lot more detail added to it, but I just want it to be known that I loovvvee drrrawwiinngg ddreessseeesssss
I didn’t even draw her face before I went crazy on that dress.
Pencil/marker drawing I started due to people inquiring about more Luck Goat stuff. I need to get the characters figured out before I script the first one. Apple is looking pretty good, please ignore her siren friend who has been drawn really terribly. I’m gonna use my lightbox to redraw this after I fix all the errors.
I missed an update last week, oh no :( Basically I got busy, reserved drawing the page for the weekend, and was like, “Hey! I work one shift on Sunday, I can totally get the page done after I get home at 3:30pm!”
… and then I got home at 9pm after running errands. Whoops. And now I’m going back to work. WHOOPS.
Promise there’ll be more updates this week >:U
… man there are some small heads on this page. Gotta fix that.
Slipshine pencils hurrppp, no naughty stuff for you, tumbles!!
I swear, I am the slowest penciller ever.
