A Great Performance Character Designs

"A Great Performance" is another attempt to adapt Chekov's play "Swan Song" to sequential art. Interesting thing about the story: apparently, acting was a low-status occupation. You wouldn't say that looking at Hollywood now.

I've decided to start a work log, a journal of sorts where I record my progress on my current project.


So why do a work log? I got this idea from the Comics Experience forums where comics writers keep a work log. It is very interesting, to me at least, to read someone else's process, and there's a lot going on in the process that forget about eventually.


But, as my 3-year-old daughter would ask, "why?" Several reasons. It is a place for me to document the decisions I made, to explain to my future self why I made a dumb decision. It is for those few people out there (hi mom, dad!) who may be interested in the process, and it feels nice to finish something once in a while. It keeps you going. The project I am now working on is the biggest one so far, so a regular schedule where I release a journal entry in which I write down how things are going will, hopefully, help me keep momentum.


So, for the first installment: what am I working on?


Drumrolls:


I'm finally ... going to be pitching a book to publishers!

So here's a cast of experimental characters I designed for a comedy series.

So these are a few of the pages I did spread out over the last four weeks weeks (mid Augustus to mid September 2016) to try out pen versus brush, pen AND brush, to try out different black and white line art styles. I copied existing artists also, as studies.
