This damn comic book has been sitting on my hard drive since January/February....and I NOW finally have some time to finish it. I figure since I won't be at Comic-Con this year - I put up a preview of it - so here's one page.....
SO far doing this short comic (only 10 pages) has been a brutal learning experience - I still can't quiet get inking right....but the next one should be a lot easier....I hope.
I'm still working on getting my Flash legs - so here was a quick morning exercise. It only took a little under and hour to build the various shapes - but just like in Photoshop - the cleaning up is taking FOREVER....so if anyone has some tips - let me know.

This past week - we all went to SF's Cable Car Museum. The Museum itself gets really hot and loud - so 20 minutes is about all you can stand. Good for making a study of the cable cars - but the cars are really to be viewed outside - so I was out on the street for most of my time. Later - we sketched a nearby church.
The watercolors are getting better - but the values need to be stronger. If you convert my watercolors to gray scale they all the shapes blend together.....nuts.
