A sense of accomplishment...

I don't know what sparked in me this week, but I feel like I've gotten quite a bit of inking done in just the last three or four days...

There's a lot more black on the pages, covering up the red now. Many of the pages are only waiting for a panel or two to be inked. Several of the pages toward the end will be relatively easy, as they are occupied by larger panels that I'll breeze through once I start on them.

Page 7 of Chapter 3 is an interesting subject. Something was bugging me about the roughs, so I worked them over till I thought I'd ironed them out, but once I started inking I realized there's one panel where Bonnie's figure is unnaturally elongated. Fortunately I drew her in such a way that I'll be able to nudge her down to size in Photoshop.

In another panel, Bonnie is comparatively too large as she stomps toward Monet. I actually haven't inked Monet yet, so I could just redraw him and ink him to match her, but I think his size in relation to the composition of the panel is just right; it's Bonnie whom I will resize slightly in Photoshop, methinks.

I'll try to remember to post a comparison of this page—the cleaned up scan before and after artistic edits. You'll get an idea of the kinds of "errors" I stick with on paper, only to digitally edit them later.

More production inks...

Another one of the digital-ready pages. Just thought I'd post a clean shot of a WIP before it's colored at all.

Chapter 3 gets some color!

Still doing major work on the inks for Chapter 3, and I got the first full page done today. There are several others on the verge of being done, but I wanted to color a new page since it's been a while—at least for Bonnie Lass.
Just flats and a little bit of background texturing done, but it's coming along smoothly.

Ahoy, amigos! It's a Bonnie Lass wallpaper!

Click the link to download the fullsize from my deviantART page. The link takes you to the standard Windows sized wallpaper (768x1024) so if you're running anything at that ratio, that's the one for you.

There's also this link for the standard Mac screen ratio of 900x1440.

Presenting... By the Pint, #1!

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the first of the 4-panel "By the Pint" comic strips, starring characters from Bonnie Lass!

The art style will fluctuate as I find a quick, workable approach throughout the first several strips. The humor, however, will pretty much maintain the current level of Suck from here on out.
