When was the last time we saw Sprinkles as a human? Many, many years ago. Well here he is now..hairy, big nose, noticeable ears, but really it's all in the eyes. Here's the first bit of inks for Issue #1. Now that the script is complete I have begun the task of drawing this beast. Let's see if I can keep the same style throughout (hint: No).
Sprinkles Volume 3, Issue 1 is underway. Having taken another class and worked on a few shorts, I re-read the original Sprinkles #1 script and decided it must be retooled. Although a lot of progress was made, I feel like it's necessary to change some elements of the story to allow me to introduce the major players all in the first issue, which should hopefully grab people's attention a lot sooner than if I had continued with the way things were. Luckily the same major story structure is mostly intact and I'll be able to re-use some of the art that was already completed (yah digital!). Once the writing is complete, hopefully the drawing will go a lot quicker than it had been since I've been keeping up with my skillz these last few weeks and improving the velocity with which I can finish a full page. Also the intended delivery now is to deliver groups of pages digitally, with a final chapter (and book) being made available for order online at the end. So we'll try that and see how it goes.
I'll also be working on a kind of anthology side project with a few of the folks from my class but that will probably remain a secret...maybe forever. Depends on how it all comes out in the end...
Not that there are many people checking this site, but here's a traditionally written news entry about the current state of Sprinkles...
- My class is over and I finished the final homework so that means that my Monday nights are free once more to actually work on Sprinkles-related stuff.
- I'm currently finishing up the third and final page of the Commanders in Grief short which should definitely be done by this coming Friday.
- Once the Commanders short is complete, I get to go back to work on Issue #1 of what I guess will be Volume 3 of Sprinkles. Not currently sure how these will be posted, whether it will be page by page or bundles of pages or one final book. I'd like to keep a stream of work flowing.
- I still have some leftover ideas for shorts so we may get 1 or 2 pagers if I need a break from the main story.
Here's the second and final part to the homework from my comic art class. The graduation scene was something I added...I think I just wanted to draw Luke's retro-70s jacket that he wore in that scene. I also added the scene with Bossk...just kind of wanted to draw him and it helped flesh things out to two pages.
This was done as part of a comic art class I was taking in Harvard Square. It was homework for a collaboration class where we each had to bring a script in and swap with a partner. We were supposed to collaborate in class then take each other's scripts home and finish a comic. The comic below was written by Larry Brandon with art by me. Page 1 of 2 below (click to embiggenate):
