Status on the page and progress

November 24, 2009

I’ve been working pretty diligently on the page I promised to post last weekend, but it’s still not done. It’s taking much longer than I expected, and it’s tough to do as much as I’d like during the work-week (Saturday – Tuesday for me), but I won’t post it until I like it.

I’ve been painting the panels in full acrylic, and I have to say that I am not 100% pleased with the results.  It doesn’t quite have the “fresh” look that I want.

For the next pages I do, I am going to use a technique that I developed a couple months ago and since forgotten about. It looks like this:

and:

Basically, it is ballpoint with gray-scale marker, with an acrylic wash for the flat color, and Prismacolors over that.

I hope to have the first page posted by the end of the week. I’m going to begin work on the cover soon as well, so I might be posting some preliminary ideas and sketches for that in the near future.
