Yep, I’ve decided – since my old job ended – not to do this comic anymore. It’s just not cheerful enough!
So what now?
Now, I’m working on a new happy webcomic! It’s about childhood, geekery, the seventies, nostalgia and FUN! Here it is:
This is an experimental page – which doesn’t fit in with the running order of the story. Jumping ahead really.
I was writing yesterday about how I might attempt the pages in ink and pencil only – to save time – and increase output. I really can’t continue with the full-colour approach that I’ve previously used. It’s just too time-intensive. If I was 20 years old, living with my parents, with no job, then maybe…
Anyway, this is a humourous webcomic, not a graphic novel which is meant awe graphic art lovers. My aspirations here are more humble than that. I think if I try it this way, my ink line-work, and my pencil-toning will improve, which is good. On the next one I’ll probably go large format again. This was dashed off on a sheet of A4 office-printer-paper. Not the best for quality and it creases like hell when you use the eraser on it.
I’d be grateful to read what you think?
