Working big and detailed tightened up some bits from the preliminary drafts: Becky’s monster’s arrow-horns are now antlers, and the heads are more wolf-like and less abstract. I love it! I got kind of carried away with the feathers and floral details, but it’s looking appropriately weird I think. I penciled this thing at Carmine Street Comics recently; here’s a process post.
We’re talking to printers and working out a gameplan to get these things made. Got a good bit of drawing left to do, though. Inks next!
I put up some originals on etsy! I do this from time to time and I should do it more, because I have a lot of pages of comics that aren’t getting any younger. Not really sure what price to sell them at but I think these are pretty reasonable.
Also a new densely-packed little sketchbook thing on gumroad.
To be sure, the broad river now cut them off from this beautiful land. But the raft was nearly done, and after the Tin Woodman had cut a few more logs and fastened them together with wooden pins, they were ready to start.
The Chapter 8 intro illustration is finished! I’m going slightly out of order because the starting points for 7 and 9 are kind of bland, and I need to figure out something to say with those illustrations in the meantime. I’ve been swamped and chipping away at this one for a while; it’s a relief to finally move forward on this project again.
This is the first full-page we’ve seen of the whole group together!!
