My Comic Book: Inking Issue #4, Page 1

I finished up the inking on the first page of The Bomb Squad #4! Feels nice to get this done, now I just have to ride the momentum until it's all finished! Check out the episode here for a bit more of my thoughts on the process.

Here's a better look at the stages that I usually take from thumbnails to tighter sketch then finally to finished inks.


Rough sketch

Final inks

It’s strange because when I started my comic, it was somewhat a gut reaction to September 11th. And now as I post this, it seems it’s looking rather relevant to issues we face today in the United States. 

And it’s totally a coincidence! This has been brewing in my head for years, but it’s only now I got to sit down and do it. My comic is just a simple adventure of a bomb squad doing their best to thwart evil terrorists from destroying the city. I’m not even trying to make a social statement, but with the climate of the US nowadays even my simple bank robbing heist page seems to take on some deeper, serious meaning!

Don’t worry, it’s not, it’s just your usual comic book bank robbery! BUT... if I can pull this story off right, it might take on a more hopeful tone!

Onto the colors!

Gunman Animated!

And that clip I've been working on as a promo for my Inktober comic is done! Gunman! Is! Here! It was very fun working on this in Procreate, but now, I really should be working on actual comics!

Youtube Channel

So I've been doing a few process videos lately, and posting them up onto Youtube. Here's the link if you guys are interested in hearing me talk about it more that reading it like this blog does.

Comix Rant

Comment, Like and Subscribe as they all say in the YouTubes! I will try to see if I can post some process drawings on here as well. It's one thing to see the video, but I personally like looking at images of people's roughs as well.

The Neverending battle is reborn!

Well I'm back for a post! After a long hiatus, and constant posting in other forms of social media, I'm back to the ol' blog. And the first thing I'm doing is to re-christen it!

Instead of informally calling it "The Neverending Battle". I've changed it back to mirror it's URL name: "Comix Rant"! I'm setting up a youTube channel that will deal with more process stuff, but I also wanted to link that up to this blog and brign this back to life.

As much as I like the ease of posting up my art on almost every social media outlet there is (watch out TikTok, you might be next!), I miss blogging. Doubtful anybody actually read the blog, but it was easier to decompress on these pages and go into more detail on what went on rather than say an Instagram post.

In anycase! I will try at the very least to update this, when I update my youTube channel. The first episode isn't up yet, so stay tuned for further posts!

"Comix Rant" is back!

It's been a long time... Inktober 2016!

I haven't been posting anythign on this blog for a long time... almost 2 years already! Most of my posts have ended up on instagram or tumblr and even Vero, but I've really neglected this thing. I still really like the format of blogger, but I don't think a lot of people see my stuff here. Which is kind of a good thing! I can kinda let some thoughts out here a lot more easily than say Twitter's character limit, and people in instagram aren't in there to read random thoughts on things!

Anyhow, let me catch up to two years worth of posts! I'll be finishing up my inktober 2016 posts in this one. And oh boy has a lot happened this past two years if you're a DC fan! Anyhow, onto inktober 2016!

 And that's it! It's a crazy giant post, but it's nice to see all these in one post. It's making me tired just thinking of all the hours I spent doing a drawing a day during inktober, but it was very worth it. Just to see the body of work I did in a month when I pushed is a good mental push. Here's hoping I can do it again this year!
