Kablammo! Another page!

Oh hey blogey-people,

I had a super fun filled weekend hanging out with my brother and sister, but alas, it is back to work as usual. I have the inks for page 7 of Golem done for y'all to check out. I was more conscious about taking pictures of the process, as I said, I am going to try to be better at that. 

This page is the first appearance of Dr. Nautical (oooooh, aaaaahhh)! 
Yay for pirates!

anyway here is the final product!

destruction, old folks homes and pirates...Man what a page!

So now you have seen the final product, here are some pictures of the process it took to get there.

Alright, so here is the tight rough I did. 
I went on ahead and sketched the "tight rough" full size, 
so I could work out the details and get it ready to lightbox, 
and not have to worry about getting it 
into photoshop and making it larger. 

Here we have the finished pencils. 
I have been using blue line a lot more because it doesn't smear like graphite,
 and being left-handed, smearing is a problem. 
I snapped this as soon as I finished pencils, 
as you can see, its literally still on the lightbox.

Here is a snapshot during my inking process. 
So I decided to shake things up a bit and start inking at the bottom of the page, 
then work my way up the page, 
not really my normal pattern,
 but I guess I really wanted to tackle all that "steampunk" style 
pirate stuff since I knew it was going to take a while. 

So there you have it, an update on a new page and a little more insight into how I do my artsy stuff. Hope you enjoyed looking at the art, let know if y'all have any comments or are interested in purchasing any of my art. I look forward to posting more, but for now, its back to work!

Relocated and Back With a Vengeance!

Okay, so maybe not exactly with a vengeance,  but how about "tenacity?"

 And yes...I just used the word "tenacity."

Anyway, school is finally over, and after about 2 weeks of slow travel and visiting with family and friends, I have finally relocated back in Ohio and have been plugging away at my Golem of South Florida stuff.

I finished all the inks for page 6 earlier today, so now that my printer and scanner have been set up, I can share the new stuff with the webernets. I want to show a little more of my process, because I know I find that interesting and someone else might as well. So here is the final inks, then I will show the process stuff!

So this is page 6, just simply scanned and thresholded in Photoshop.
 (and yes I forgot a line in the first panel, I noticed it after I scanned it.)

Alright, so that's what the inks look like, I'll be honest, this is one of my favorite pages I have done so far, I had a really fun time drawing that solders whole facial region getting destroyed. So here is what the tight rough for this looked like, remember it is a 'rough'.

This is what the rough looks like. 
I actually drew it with a blue graphite mechanical pencil,
 when I scanned it for Photoshop I scanned in greyscale, 
so I could have an easier time seeing since
 I was going to lightbox onto the final bristol. 

Unfortunately I don't have the final pencils, I took a picture with my phone but it is not wanting to upload onto my computer, but as I said, I lightboxed the final image, and inked on top of the blue line pencil I used. 

So that's all I have for now bloggers, hopefully I will have another page for you in the next few days, I am full time comic-ing right now, so I'm excited to make progress! Catch you on the flippidy-flip!
