4th hurdle

Ok, this was an interesting one. The Owl is meant to be a Eurasian Eagle Owl, though as long as he looks like an owl thats what matters. I thyink the composition works, and I think I actually have the scale between the Crow and Owl correct... Lots to fix in photoshop though, made lots of smudges whilst working, need to tidy up the tippexed areas and add some FX lines to the first panel, because the ones I did originally were shat...

Third Ink

Surprised myself, managed to get a third bit of inking done today. Less panels though, no wonder it was a quicky.Also, please remember tone will be used to fill in a lot of hte white space when its photoshopped, and I am going to stretch out the headrest of the professor in frame three... I still have issues keeping scale consistent...

Second Ink

Right, so I got the second page inked, half at home, half at uni. this is the first real set of panels I have inked... theyre not too bad. I made a fair few shifts for the positions of the crow/stag beetle, butI think I pulled it off. I HOPE the final frame comes across as its meant to, and is not just a mess of black ink.

Lettering and tone will be photoshopped in sometime next week...

One Page Down

OK. So today I actually got around to finishing the pencils for my project, enlarged about 20 pages, and have set about to inking. It took about 3 hours to do a page in a3, which I hope is worth it. Still have to scan and edit it. I am certain I can get at least 6 of these done by submission date, and will ofc aim MUCH HIGHER.
Anyway, I also think this took so ong because I was taking odd breaks here and there, and because of how much details went in to those fucking cables. Anyway, Might make a start on another one tonight... PS sorry for crappy photo

Sorry for down time

Hoy, I havent been upping anything since last week as I have been concentrating on getting the story fleshed out. Way I see it, I have some rough characters to play around with in my head, then I need the story in order to realise settings and things which may need to be edited for character designs (such as, if a character is going to have matrix-style access ports across their body, this needs to be reflected in the character design blah blah)
So now I have my story, I am creating a 'name', its essentially super rough pencil page's showing layout and snippets of dialogue. Everything is changeable, but by getting this done it also helps me realise a. if the story flows well and b. roughly how many pages the final version will have.
For example, two paragraphs of the story I have written have translated to 7 comic pages.

This does not bode well, as my story is 8 pages long.
