Due to a tricky economic situation and being unable to find a good printing-house; the first Silver Vein-book will not be printed in time for SIS/SPX 2012. It just didn’t work out for me this year. This has created some interesting opportunities though. I found out that the printing-house I originally intended to use (but couldn’t thanks to the long shipping time) offers double the pages I wanted in the book for 1/3 the price compared to what I found here, in Gothenburg. So instead of rushing to print the book now, I intend to wait until I finish making chapter three and then include it in the book. This will allow me to make an affordable 200+ page book with plenty of time to revise some pages I don’t like and add more extras. In the end, I think it will be worth it. I’ll still be going to SIS though, as I want to meet friends and get to know more people in the comics community here.
Anyhow, have some pics:
This is an anatomy exercise turned Silver Vein concept-art. For once I didn’t hate working with colours. This might also be some of the brightest colors I’ve used in a picture so far. Anyway, I’m spending some time doing random pics and practicing anatomy after finishing work on the book. The cooldown-period I need after big projects is starting to disappear.
Another Howl-pic. This one was another anatomy-excercise.
That’s it for this time. I’ll have one more post done before SPX. It will feature the guest art I received for the SV-book and also a whole new comic project I’m working on with a friend. Look forward to it.
