Copying panels
One of the things I'm trying at the moment is copying panels from existing comics pages, for the purpose of study and practice. I get to practice penciling, inking and coloring and I'm hoping constructing poses and worlds and how to suggest things will seep in through osmosis. I'm also taking a colorist course at Comics Experience at the moment and also a course on how to create a story through images, panels at the Sequential Artists Workshop, both great places to learn the craft.

The Book Prototype is Finished
January 5th, 2017.

I finished the book prototype! And this is the final cover.

Worklog 2016 12 29
Almost finished! Just nine more pages to go developing a mockup prototype book. The book contains rough sketches of three comics adaptations of public domain one-act theater plays.

The goal is to have something to send to publishers, to see if they'd be intested in publishing something like this in its finished form.

So, time for work log number three!

I finished the thumbnails for "Warrior's Lament". It wasn't easy puzzling together the photo reference for it, but I think I like how the pacing came out. At any length, I'm putting it away for a while so I can return to it with a fresh pair of eyes. And an editor indicated he may have time to give me feedback on it also, so I'll wait for that.

So on I go, working on the theater play comics.
