patience...

Seems I was a little over-anxious and jumped the gun there.  I submitted the book, but the site through which it will be sold needs to review it first, and there's a rather large queue ahead of me, so it might be a couple of weeks before the book is available.  Stay tuned for more info...

It exists! I've held it in my hands...

D.O.P.E. Vol.2 #1 exists.  I got my physical copy in the mail today.  Now I've got to wait for the site I'm going to sell it through to accept my W-9 form, and hopefully sometime tomorrow I'll have info on how you can get your own copy (physical or digital) of this historic comic book!

Test for the new host

Switched over to HostGator from Hostway to save some bucks. My version of MovableType is pretty old but was able to seemingly transfer everything over. Publishing this proves that it worked,

Here's part of an unfinished panel for Page 2...I wish I could work faster!

Script Complete, Pencils Begun

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).

Retooling and Side Project

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
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...

The final page of the President's Day short. It took a long time to do the detail on this one but I'm happy with the result. Next up: back to work on Adventures of Sprinkles the Psychotic Moose!
