So yah, the title says it, but Sect 1.2 is up, here is a link in case you don't want to go to the site. LINK A little shorter than last weeks, only 3 pages. And unfortunately 1.3 is only going to be 3 pages as well, we'll see what happens with 1.4. Next section is up May 11th. Also check out the continuity error, where Greg's shirt changes from striped to plain and back to striped again.
So today I was drawing the last page for section 1.2, and it turns out it's a massive fight scene. I've never drawn anything this intricate, so I actually had to look up references, and do about 5 sketches, before I got something to work with.
As far the actual comic. It should definitely be out on Monday. I just have to color the last page, and then I'm done with this section. I also sat down and did a ton of writing this morning. Believe it or not, I hadn't finished writing 1.2 till today. I also wrote 1.3 and a little of 1.4, and I outlined up till 1.5. So I've got enough pages to work on for a while now.
It's been quite a while. So to make sure something actually gets posted. Here's something from my sketchbook that I wipped up earlier today. I'm working on pages. Should be no problem getting the next section on Monday, so look for it.
So I decided to buy a new computer this week, and to subsequently reinstall everything, and completely redo everything. Well needless to say, this has put a huge cramp in my workings on really anything, but most pertinent to this blog, Northpark Underground. Most likely the second section will be coming out a week later than it was originally intended. This also explains the total lack of blog updates recently. Hopefully I'll be able to get everything sorted this weekend, and get back to work next week. So the posts will be a little light for the next couples days, but hold on.
I had a lot of problems with this panel. The above was the original. I realized I didn't have enough room for the text the way I wanted it, and That the panel wasn't at all, like I originally wrote, so I did this re-edited version. I think it looks loads better now.
Here are concept sketches for the Warriors of the 4 masks. I have no idea how I came up with the fat face one, All the other ones I got ideas from some where, but that one I seemingly pulled out of thin air.
It's here. It's up. Hooray! The first section of Northpark Underground is now up at the site. Here is the address for the NORTHPARKUNDERGROUND page. The image above is the cover for the first chapter. So this is section 1.1, when it changes to 2.1, the cover will change.
Unfortunately I'm not nearly as ahead, as I would like to be, and I'm going to have to really bust my ass to get the next section out on time. In case you didn't see. Section 1.2 comes out on 04/19/09.
I've got a lot of stuff for the blog, that should be coming out in the next couple days. A lot of stuff that I was holding off until the first section came out. See you tomorrow.
Here is the new landing page for NeworldUniverse.com, it's been all updated in preparation for Northpark Underground which starts this MONDAY! YAH! I'll try to put it up tonight at midnight, but it might not be till tomorrow night. All the web design is done, it's just a matter of remebering.
Also the post have been pretty sparse this week, but they should really pick up this week. There is a lot of process on this issue that, I've wanted to post, but didn't want to post it till the issue came out.
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.
