Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Beautifully polished. Looks great Ellis!
Thanks Tom. Still bugs me on line weights. You really have to quit at some point when you're doing comics.
Lookin' good, Ellis! When I was working on my comic I felt like I needed to jump in and just get going. The first couple of pages you do won't be as nice as the last ones because you really do build up some momentum when it comes to inking (at least for me). I got to the point for a while when I just couldn't wait to steal away a couple of hours to get some inking done. I've been on hiatus from my comic since the con... rethinking my marketing approach with Dorothy (going to do an ashcan version of issue 2 to complete the first story and then take it publishers rather than build things up at cons... and probably put together a website). What are your plans for this comic?
This comic is the property of Larry Latham. Very long career in animation. Distinguished OU film school Professor.He has the worst sort of luck any of us could have. He has cancer. Read the first three updates on the webpage I'm the New Guy
It's why it is slow. But I feel like I'm getting "coursework" done getting the notes I get back from Larry.
It's and it is in one sentence. I am the next big literary sensation.
I really like the lumpen priest. I agree with Rick--it always takes awhile to get a rhythm, esp'ly with inking. And esp'ly when you're working on someone else's project. You can get into that second-guessing mode where everything becomes tentative.This page looks real nice, and I love the flow and compositions (espl'y last 3 panels), but I can see you are yet to really cut loose on any of these figures and give them the Goodson treatment. That will come. Pound out a few more pages and you'll find ways to get yr uniqueness in.(And I know what you mean about line weights. Always instructive to look at some old Jack Davis work--he makes sure to always put a THICK black line around any character. Feels crazy to do it, but it really works)
BTW go back and finish your billy mumy badge for comic fest. And everyone else to a badge.
