My Comic Book: Page 20 final inks

I've got a few posts to catch up on. It's been awhile since I updated this blog as well, I've sort of got an excuse, but I'm back on the book again! I jumped on the Inktober bandwagon last year so that took up most of October month. I'll post that work up here soon, but for now, page 20 is done!

As for November and December? Uh, I have no excuse. I kinda slowed down for the holidays... and a lot of life got in the way! The good life though! I caught up on some gaming and got a few great Graphic novels with my birthday money.

4 more pages to go! I'm really excited to finish this issue!

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Page 19 Final Inks

Page 19 is done! 5 more pages to go! I think I may have gone a little overboard with the inking style for this one compared to the rest of the book. I might simplify the blacks on it... or my usual M.O.: fix it in the coloring stage...

My Comic Book: Issue 3 page 18 inks

Page 18 is done!

A little legibility issue on the bottom 3 panels.
There's a lot of detail and reverse color fills of the black lines going on in the last set of 3 panels, that some readability is being compromised. I think I can solve it by lightening up the black in the background, some simple color work and maybe even coloring the fill of the blacks in the background. In any case, I'm moving on from this page and onto the next one.

There's a few bits throughout this issue that I need to address with another pass, but I want to maintain my output, so I'm sacrificing the finishes for now. When I go back for the color and the lettering pass that's when I start going back into the problem areas.

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Pages 16 and 17

I got the double page spread inked up finally. I have quite a few things going on in these pages (as usual), so I'm probably going to rely on coloring to help me bring focus back to this page (yet again). I'm hoping the middle of the spread doesn't get too smooshed together when it appears in printed form. It was a little tricky trying to space out the words so they don't get gobbled up by the binding. I'm still not sure if it'll work.

Return O. da M.A.C.!

I loved O.M.A.C. when I was a kid. It was just so fantastical and out there, with some totally impossible sci-fi concepts that blew my mind. It still is one of my favorite works by Kirby to this day. I also loved the new 52 reboot version of it by Dan Didio and Keith Giffen. Anyhow, Happy Friday everyone!
