Progess has started up on chapter 3 pages and I’m about 8 pages into the 28 page sequence as far as inking goes. The pages have been looking good and been challenging.The very first page of the chapter is a complicated shot with police cars, houses, people, trees… woof. The work has been good though. I’m getting more and more confident in the work I am doing and the look I’m achieving. It does all feel like the same book pretty mcuh which is a big deal. I don’t want it to feel like I suddenly leveled up at any stage. There’s a bit of holding back going on right now. Well above you can see the panel I finished last night. This page is taking two days as opposed to my normal 1 night of work. But it will be worth it and I’m sure I’ll be able to hammer out two in one night here soon to make up.
On to Book Recommendations and The Such:
AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS adaptation.
Picked this adaptation up of HP Lovecraft’s great novela. The adaptation is really solid, though more an adventure story than horror. Not that this is a bad thing. I highly recommend check it out if you want a good quick read with some nice visually and adventure.
MAKING COMICS PODACST: Interviews Doug TenNapel and Ethan Nicole
These two gentlemen are two of my favorite creators and they did a great interview with Jason Brubaker of reMIND. It’s well worth your time and the second part in particular is really uplifting as they deal with issues around comics as a culture, the messages we put out and the vision they have for comics. This is something really dear to my heart as I feel like Doug TenNapel says: “Comic have not lived up to their charter.” I hope this changes and want to be a part of it.
