LEARNING UNDER PRESSURE
I’m about to wrap up a 20 page comic I penciled and inked in under two weeks. I’m exhausted in every possible sense, but the book is back on schedule, and I learnt a few new tricks I’ll be carrying over into any books I do in the future. I’ve kinda figured that for me to do a page to absolute perfection (and I’m an absolute perfectionist — something that doesn’t go hand in hand with work-for-hire gigs on licensed properties…) I need at least a day and a half, depending on the script. For this project particularly, a day and a half. Ideally two, and I think the same would go for colourists. Good colourists can probably chew up and spit out a great looking page in no time, but I think to really get an absolutely perfect page of art out of me (and whoever happens to be colouring it) you need at least a handful of days per page. Unfortunately, this is a comfort not even some creator owned books offer these days, which is a shame. OVerall, I’m pretty happy with the pages. I think a lot of them are on par with the best pages of the previous issue, and I have to thank Mike Spicer for being a rad dude.
Cover by me, with colour magic by Mike Spicer. Yes, it’s real. Coming soon, so preorder (that part’s really important) at your local comic shop ASAP and help give it the sales figures something like this deserves! This is a subscription cover too, so you need to specifically tell your shops you want this one (if you do…)
Please share it around, tell all your friends.
