Rather than go into a huge pre-explination, I’ll just get to the pages…. Come, away to the pages!!
Here are the initial inks. I was a bit of a dummy and started putting the grays on the wall before I remembered to save the file. So, yes the initial inks on this page have a lovely taste of gray on the walls.
Page 14: I hate to admit it but, I have a hatred for this page. It is all my own doing, I tried to take a shortcut or two that just complicated matters and consistently second guessed myself. I started over on the corn field at least twice. It’s a prime example of being your own worst critic and just flat out self hatred.
Now, hours more work of me staring at the screen and wondering what the hell I’m doing. Luckily, I got to the end and don’t hate it so much.
This is just a little peek into how I work on this and what’s coming up. Not sure when all of this is being posted. Lot’s going on and I have not been the best at keeping with deadlines (Sorry Caryn!!) but keep an eye on topshelf2.0
Some of the finished drawings may have an odd pattern in the grays. I don’t know why. It won’t be like that when it’s posted along with the dialog and word balloons and such.
