In the next few weeks, along with the 90 minute sketches, I'm going to start posting process images of the graphic novel I'm working on. I've finished the writing (most of it, anyway) and I'm anxious to start drawing the book... so... I'm just going to draw the pages that I know are locked. Yeah! Here's one from the latest batch.
I start the page in blue lead and probably won't get any tighter than this by way of pencils. I allow the accidents and discovery of a line when I go to ink. I'm asking for trouble, true - but that's why there's white-out. The panels are in sort of a standard 'grid' format because 1) it makes it easier for me to edit later - draw and drop a in new panel then rearrange a page in PS:CS if I realize that I'm missing a beat or some crucial peice of information and 2) over-designed comicbook pages are hell to a reader. I'm trying to get a broad audience to read this book and the last thing I'd want to do is alienate them by laying out pages that are too fancy-shmancy (I'll put up a 'Cybernary 2.0' page I did way-back-when that proves this point - it's so effin' confusing it's obscene). More later.
And oh hey, look...semi-larger scans. Stop with the requests already.
