So it been a while since I posted a finished drawing up for you, let alone pencils! I haven't done pencils in a while. But anyways here it is. This piece is actually a panel taken from a page I'm working on which will find its way onto the site soon I'm sure.
In this image you may notice that I've cut way back on some of the harsh angles I was using a while back. This is something that was suggested to me by an editor. I've been playing around with it and I really like the look it gives my stuff. There's an extra vitality to it that I think it was missing when I was using the harsher angles. Also you'll notice that both Joey and Amelia have been slightly redesigned for this new format of Air-Heart. I'm going to be concentrating on doing single issues that begin and end independently. I really love the idea of comics becoming episodic again. I think that's something that really hurts the industry. Continuity is a blessing and a curse. It keeps fans coming back for more and allows for deeper character development all while alienating any newcomers who don't know the backstory. Oh well! The good news is this won't be the case with Air-Heart. Each issue will feature a prologue that gets you into the idea, followed by an episodic story that begins and ends. The idea being that you can pick issue one or issue seventy and still know exactly what's going on. Well anyways I'm going to be getting down to serious work on issue one really soon. I'll post again soon!
Well I've done it! I've returned back to I- Town once more. I'll be spending the next week getting settled in and hopefully meeting up with some old friends along the way. New sketches will be coming your way just as soon as I get my workstation up and running again.
Well, I'm up early today and I'm going to be headed to Maryland! My Mother recently finished up her MBA (Go Mom!) and now she's going to be walking the stage for graduation. It'll be a really nice chance to hang out with her after not seeing her for quite a while.
I can't really tell you why yet but, I've been taking a little break from Air-Heart for right now. What I can tell you is that when I get back to Air-Heart things are going to be a little different than they were. I've been working on modifying my style recently as a result of a conversation with an editor. I'm really loving the new vitality its giving my stuff. I'm sure you all will enjoy it as well! Additionally, the format of the book is going to be a little different as well. I'm planning on releasing them as single issues that are very episodic, beginning and ending withing each 32pg book. I'm hoping this will really make them fun and easy to pick up in any order you choose. Well, that's enough yackiddy for right now. I'll post again when I can!
Hey people's! Sorry about the wait for the latest entry. I had to get everything finished off for Editor's day and then of course actually go to it. It went really well. That's about all I can tell you for right now. I'm not at home at the moment so I can't post any sketches yet, but I will when I get back to Savannah! Be good! Oh it also happens to be my 23rd B-day.
