Page three. Almost done with page three for squirrel too, so these stories are neck and neck right now. I imagine ! is gonna pull ahead though.
If this weren't just a little sketchbook comic I'd have soo many ideas to artsy it up. Don't want to keep redoing what's already done, though. Not even at this early point, not when I have so much else to do.
I bought a new pen over the weekend. Rather than jump back into A Boy and His Squirrel, I wanted to warm up/break in the pen. So here's page one of another story called !. It's meant to be my best bad Steinberg impression but with all the hatching I accidentally put in it's like a poor man's (bad) Gauld. I'll be using this as a warm up to Squirrel pages so I'll jump back and forth between the two, posting here.
Continuing the stellar launch of my latest project here at the ol' blog: two pages in and I've hit another stumbling block. The pen I've been using to ink these pages has gone and dried up on me. At least dried up enough that I can't get the line I want out of it. It's taking me about four times as long as it should to ink each panel - retracing the lines to get a good mark. Very frustrating. I can only use the one kind of pen as every other I have bleeds way out on this cheap sketchbook paper. Rather than butchering the new pages (as in the exerpt above) I'm gonna wait to draw more until I can find me a suitable replacement. I don't know when I'll get the chance to - soon I hope.
So, some filler then...
I've got a few other projects in the works right now, as well as normal sketchbooky type stuff to post. This'll fuel my obsessive desire to update this page. A Boy and His Squirrel will be back as soon as I buy a new pen.
Sorry about the rough going, but I'd rather have something I like to post, rather than just something.
