Heroes Con 2017 in Charlotte NC, that is. I’ll be there for a second time in a few weeks. Getting the jump on things with some sketches to add to the box of original sketches for sale along with some pre-con commissions.
Head on over to the completed pages, now with words and sound effects, and some cleanup. Along with the last two pages that haven’t been posted here yet.
Now to get it ready for printing!
Finally got back to the comics. Here we are with page six, condensed somewhat from what I had originally planned. When I “write” (I use that term loosely, because I’m not a writer), I tend to draw things out way more than needed – for example, this would have been a two page spread, and if I went with my original outline, I’d be on page ten or so. That said, this page makes more sense with the next page, which will be a big splash page of that wide mouthed alien fella getting punched in the face.
Our spaceman has ventured to the city in the distance, and has encountered some unfriendly residents in the remains of town. Obviously, this place has seen better days.
So the whole time I’m drawing this, I keep getting Return of the Vampire stuck in my head. Anyway, this fella’s just been caught and about to get some serious sun tan. I did an old sketch of him last year, felt like revisiting it for a proper piece. I think this is proper? Almost gave up on it halfway through, but I think I brought it back to unlife.
And finally page 5. Our intrepid dead (?) spaceman is bidding farewell to his ship’s computer, and walking to the ruined city in the distance to get some jumper cables. Little does he know a lady riding a giant zombified lizard creature is right behind him…
Had some struggles with this one, the result is…ok. The beast was fun to draw though. Okay, page 6 should be a bigger deal, more work there. Architecture and whatnot to draw in detail. Not my favorite, but it has to be done.
