I finally got these done. It took a while since I had to get used to my new job. Well, I guess it’s time to move on to chapter three. Old ones are to the left/on top. New ones to the right/bottom.
In slightly related news, I’ve begun to use some photo reference. The results are frequently good so I’ll be using it a lot more from now on. Here are some examples:
Serial killer face! Ehum, anyway, that last self-portrait is the only one I’ve made that I don’t hate. Hey, working with color is fun, I should do that more. Oh wait, I have a 100 page chapter to draw. Dang. Well, I haven’t been all that active on this blog but I’ll try to step up the pace. There is some material I’ve managed to do this summer, I guess. We’ll start with that…..soon.
I have some bigger blog updates coming but for now I just want to make a quick note of what I’m currently working on. I thought that I should do some warm-ups before I start working on chapter 3 of Silver Vein. I also looked at the two first chapters and found that there are some pages I can’t stand looking at. These are pages that either don’t work art-wise or that have a layout that might be hard to follow. The first chapter in particular has some really jarring jumps in quality when it comes to the art and it’s because I drew it on and off over a long period of 18 months. So I’ve fixed six pages from chapter one and are now moving on to chapter two. Let’s have a little before-and-after look at said pages (old ones to the left, new ones to the right):
CH01 – Title Page
CH01 – Page 11
CH01 – Page 13
CH01 – Page 23
CH01 – Page 25
CH01 – Page 30
I’ll update the smackjeeves & drunk duck accounts shortly. I might even make some more small changes to the pages in both chapters as the time for putting together the collected volume draws near. I won’t change anything after it’s printed though. That’s all for now. Next update will have the updated pages for chapter two.
