Comics, Finishing: week 1

I’m making myself pick just one thing to focus on a month. For Feburary it’s comics. It’s not quite like riding a bike. Mind you, it’s not like I haven’t drawn at all since I stopped really poking at comics. I sketch people on transit sometimes, and clothing ideas. Recently I did a (very) rough storyboard and realised that hey, that visual storytelling I devoted so much time to is rather useful. But I am very glad that I thumb-nailed all this last year. Not that I’m following any of…

Focus Month: Comics, finishing

Okay, new month, new focus. It seemed like a natural progression from focusing on writing to focus on visual story telling.

All I had to worry about was takin’ some pictures and socialising. I snagged goodies from: Ben (some minis I didn’t have yet) Spike (book three of Templar, AZ) Dylan (a print, somehow I didn’t have any Dylan art on our walls yet) Erika (collected DAR!) Kip (City of Roses teaser) Leslie (a purple Beastlie that…
