Here is an add for issue 1 of Iatrogenesis. I've started bouncing back and forth between working on Sam and Iatro. I'm a little over half way done with Iatro and I've got a couple pages done of Sam (but I'm gonna take it real slow on that series, I don't want to rush it). I got a page done for Sam today, and I already penciled and Inked a page for Iatro. Then I did this add. Pretty busy day. Still not feeling great. Hopefully, I'll be better in a couple days.
Here is a new drawing I did today. The first couple pages of the first issue of Sam jump around in time a lot, so I'm designing several looks for what Sam looks like throughout his life. This is Sam roughly around 16 years old. He is supposed to 18 in current continuity so this is pretty close to age right now. Check back for more on Sam and his aging process tommorrow.
Here are some sketches for the various years of Sam's life. I've got a couple pages done for the first issue of Sam. I'm still thinking about doing another short story before really diving into the first full arc of Sam.
150th post. Alright. A lots happened in all this time. Hope you've enjoyed the ride. I know I have. Nothing big this time around, Saving the something really big for 200 I think. I don't know what will happen, but something will. Heres to another 150 more.
So kinda an odd scene I know. These are some panels from the first Chapter of Sam. I started working on it today. This issue will probably take a long time to be finished, and on top of that I'll be working on Iatrogenesis at the same time, but expect to be getting frequent updates on both. Here's a close up of one of the panels in color.
I do this for about all my comics. Here is a page process. Step 1: Rough Layout. I do a really quick sketch of how I think the page should look. Sometimes I go with the first thing I do, but with this page I did about 3 or 4 before I decide on this one. I've been going for a specific type of visual layouts with this book. This page actually breaks that a little. Most of the pages I've done so far are all laid out horizontally, but this one is all over the place. Hell, it isn't even symmetrical. I think it's also interesting how close the 1 minute layout is to the final layout. Wow! Typing all that took longer than actually drawing that part. Step 2: Pencils.You can see in this step all the lines I use to line up all the boxes and how I generally put the page together. The way I work, the pencils is still kind of a rough version of what the page is going to look like. Step 3: Inks. Unlike a lot of traditional artists, I actually put just as much, if not more work in the ink process. This is where the page really takes shape. The shot up there has actually had a lot of digital work done to it already as well. It was actually two pages combined. A lot of the back ground elements were done on another piece of paper and then they were put together in photoshop. Step 4: Color. Color is a really big part of Iatro. I think once you get to see the actual issue it will make more sense what is going on with the color. For this page I basically made everything green, and then put white on top as well as halftone patterns. Step 5: Vector pieces. This is usually also where I put in lettering, but there wasn't any for this page. It made be hard to see in this small version, but I added a circle and arrow to show that the book is a blow up of the previous panel. There is also a dotted line to show the path of the apple. This is continued from the previous page.
I hope this was very informative. Now go and steal my process, that's basically all I do from other people.
Another Marvel drawing. Someone asked me when I'm gonna do more of these, so I decided to do more. I think it turned out pretty good. I tried a slightly different coloring style. It works well for this drawing I think.
I write comics that no one cares about. I make music that no one cares about. I wish I lived the in the village from the prisoner.
And now I make Podcasts with my friends that only a couple people care about.
