I tend to mash-up different stages when I'm doing comics stuff; mainly when I'm working on pencils, I'll leave some pencils half-finished and start inking, simply for variety's sake (that, and inking's my favorite.) Anyway, so here are the mostly finished pencils for my Visual Storytelling final.

It gets crowded, particularly on page two; it's sort of annoying, because after getting very far in my pencils, it occurred to me how I could've made this whole comic work without dialogue. Which I think would make it read a lot better. But oh well. I know for next time.

Later days!

24 Page Comic!

For your viewing enjoyment. I wasn't planning on posting this all up here since I'm making it a webcomic, but I sort of want to show off the complete thing; but you can still check out the webcomic to experience it in TECHNICOLOR. The inking gets progressively more special with every page. Yay, late night inking!


Until next time, folks!

Running on very little sleep here.

So for SCAD-Atlanta's Generate this year, I pulled my first all-nighter ever and produced a 24 page comic; I'll be posting it all on smackjeeves.com over the course of the next 12 weeks. The first two pages are up. I added some grays and colors and all that fun stuff. Check it!
  For the other page and future updates, you can go here. 

 I have another webcomic up that I started last December; I still love the concept and the characters, but the finished pages are not things I'm particularly proud of (at least, not anymore. I thought it was hot stuff all those months ago.) Luckily over the course of the year, I've improved, but nevertheless, I'm reluctant to jump back into it. Part of the problem is that I was trying to tackle a larger story without a solid structure; and my last page sort of left it in the middle of a scene anyway.

 So I've been considering restarting it; but posting more self-contained stories, allowing the characters some breathing room. It may be a good chance to flesh things out.

I'm still not pleased with the design for this blog, but I figure in the meantime I'll keep it simple.

Until next time!
