My Comic Book: Issue 3 Page 13 final inks and lettering

Final inks and lettering pass is done for this page. I keep looking at the final word balloon on this page and keep thinking if I need to move the little "speaking-arrow" over to the lower side so it looks like the voice is coming from Bomb Girl instead of Mur (the robot). But I think I'll worry about that later on, it works fine right now as is.

Good thing I used a different font and word balloon shape for both characters. It's tough enough to follow since we don't actually see two characters having a dialogue. The unique font and balloon shape per character helps differentiate the two voices in the conversation.

 I need to tighten up my layouts for page 14 next. Let's see if I can keep this momentum going.

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Page 13 WIP

Almost done! I just have to do a bit of cleanup on the final panel, and do some more lettering, but I'm close!

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Page 13 WIP

Wooo! I pushed it a little tonight and cranked out the layouts and a rough block in of page thirteen. I got some of the inking started too.

From what I've learned, once you find the momentum, just ride the wave and keep drawing! I haven't quite gotten the momentum back, but it's getting there!

This page is essentially a zoom out from a tight shot. To emphasize this and to make the last panel have more "ooph", I made panels 1-4 graduallly get bigger. Panel 1 is nice and conservative: working within the safety zone of a printed page. By the time the eye gets to the bottom panel the drawing goes all the way to the edges.

That's it for this post! Good night! Er... Good Morning! I'm gonna be paying for this since I have to take my daughter to swimming classes tomorrow! Splash!

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Page 12 Final Inks

Yeeesssss. Another page in the bag! Well aside from the colors and the lettering that is!

I finished up the last panel in the page while watching Man of Steel in the background. I really do like that movie even though every critic and fanboy has poo-pooed on it.

Anyhow, this page came together a little better with that second panel finally inked. I tied the panel progression a little better with the sound effect across panels 1-3. It really is a matter of getting back into the groove and remembering the great feeling of finishing a page.

The solid black shadows really save this page a lot, otherwise it'd just be a very floaty mess. Anyhow, it is 1:30 am right now, and I will be paying for this in the morning if I don't get some rest! Up, up and away!

My Comic: Issue 3 Page 12 WIP

I got the third panel started up and almost to finish. There's some minor tweaks I want to do with it still, and it needs an SFX pass, but I'll leave that for tomorrow. For tonight, it's good enough.

My Comic Book: Issue 3 Page 12 WIP and Page 13 WIP

Not keeping up a panel a day...

However, I did get to finishing the layouts and script for page 13 and off to a good start on the layouts for page 14.

My Comic BooK: Issue 3 Page 12 Thumbnails and initial inks

I started page 12 as soon as I could, but I was tired this weekend and simply lazy since my last post. Still, I managed to push myself a little bit this late Sunday/Monday evening/morning!

A panel a day should get me to finish this page by the end of the week.
I have some very rough thumbnails of this page in my sketchbook. I've gotten more and more lazy with my thumbnails. Not having a lot of time on my hands makes me really not want to draw the same thing twice. So I just jumped in for this page once I figured out where the panels would go.

This page, once finished, marks the halfway point of the book, as well as the last of my current rough thumbnails. I have an idea of what the next two or three pages will be, and pretty much the end page, but in between those pages is where I get to cut loose and have some fun with action sequences.

Okay that's it for tonight! Good night/morning!
