It's nice to show off a penciled page for once as I'm always inking my finished work and I miss the full, sketchy look of the uninked pages. I'm going for a super animated look on this project, mostly because that's what I draw the easiest and quickest. I really like the panel where the kid is straightening his glasses, as I've been putting some serious effort into having my characters act naturally, doing things that regular people do, regardless of whether they be running, talking, fighting or what have you.
And here's the extra pic from Drink n Draw finally colored. It's AQUA LEUNG, baby, Paul Maybury and Mark Andrew Smith's upcoming underwater epic from Image. The piece is darker here than on the other computer on which it was colored. I did this on cardboard and muted the colors so that the texture still showed through. I love drawing on cardboard, something that Dave Johnson does all the time and my friend Vince enjoys this as well.
Oh and where's my head at? In listing all the other talented folk living in the Calgary area, (heretofore to be refererred to as the "Calgarea") I foolishly neglected the glamourous Ms. Fiona Staples. So, I've added her to my list of links. Be sure to visit. And for the love of god, DON'T tell her Nick sent you. I can't be held responsible for what she might do to anyone affiliated with me in any way. (I'm obviously joking, but I hate using smiley faces. Reminds me of when I was a young girl, chatting with my friends over MSN.) OMG, I'm rambling! Tee hee.
Ah well. Off to work on those comic pages. It's gonna be a looooong but fun week.
