Playing catch-up wip!
Lots of Dutch angles in this comic too. Keeping some and changing others, because they loose their impact when overused.
Hey AEA, how long ago did you draw those original panels that you are now reworking? The new panels are looking really good, there's a noticeable difference in energy, backgrounds and your composition choices!
Thanks! I’m having a blast lining up the panels and seeing the improvement :)
If I’m remembering right, the original pages for The Forest were thumbnailed and sketched in 2011 and then inked in 2012. I had last worked on comics in 2008-2009ish.
3 pages inked this week. Good progress. Aiming for 4 next week.
Taking a break after work and playing my video game for a bit to relax / switch mindsets before jumping into comics seems to be working out okay so far.
Another updated panel. Probably gonna redo those letters, tho.
I feel like I’m getting better at keeping the sketch’s energy when I ink.
Thumb, rough sketch in blue, tighter in red, letters / balloons / borders, and inked panel art.
Looks like Mon, Wed, Thurs, and Fri will be comic drawing days, and Tues, Sat and Sun will be whatever / R&R days.
I sketched 9 pages last week, and I’d like to get another 3 inked this week.
Also fixing several instances of characters facing backwards for no particular reason.
