Deadline over! But really, not really. In all truth the sixteen page deadline was a kick in the butt with a steel-toed-boot made of a false sense of accomplishment. Oh yeah, I'm totally happy to have dug in my heels and gotten down to work but this really is only the beginning. I got twelve pages of City of Cards almost completely done for that deadline so that did get me going, and I'll probably post the strangeness that is my dream comic up here as well that made up the other four pages.
From now on, it's all me and my amazing thesis advisor setting the pace and getting this work done. I'm ready, I'm excited, and there'll be a lot more to show in the next few months and beyond. I have plans. Oh yes, I have plans. First, some more from the pages of City of Cards I've been working on including the full version of page eight and some panels from the beginning of chapter 2 with Alex:
And now, sketch dump time. This is probably the best sketch of Candy I have drawn so far:
I have also realized that Plato will never, ever learn to shut up:
And I've been continuing with my brush pen environment sketches because they are really very relaxing:
Other than that, things have been awesome. John Higgins, the colorist on Watchmen and The Killing Joke, gave an impromptu talk this past Tuesday and even if I don't have a lot of free time I'm having an amazing time just hanging out with people in the studio.
Hopefully soon I'll figure out a proper update schedule. Till then I'll just try to keep up this once about a weekish thing I've got going.
