captive - intro - progress

I took the day off to take care of my sick dog and made some good progress on the intro pages the captive story. spent the morning looking at movies to get a feel for fashion of 1817 then started filling in the seats at the philadelphia theater. This is 22 x 17 so its a lot of drawing but its nice to not have to fit the drawing in to a teeny little panel. I must say I am happy my drawing tonight. now I need some sleep.

I also did a little experiment on the "waterproofness" of my pens. turns out it's really waterproof but you need to wait about an hour.

page 6 bugbomb

I really like this page. The compositions and the washes look nice and the page looks good as a whole i think. 9 panels, 9 drawings. The drawings themselves are ok and suck in some spots but it's still one of my favorite pages so far.

bug bomb p 6

more work to do tomorrow. Also wanted to redraw the last panel. the proportions were off quite a bit.

Eisner nomination!

Trickster got nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Anthology! Im a little stunned by this. Thanks to Greg Rodgers for letting me draw his story and big propos to Matt Dembicki for pulling this together and working really hard on promotion. Awesome job everyone.
