First page of a brand new story! Check it out! I’m pretty pleased with this one, even though it took forever this week due to Circumstances. We are gonna have some fun in this chapter!
As a result of like never using rulers for panels or perspective, I seem to have developed the uncanny ability to draw a straight line
Straight edges are for chumps, kids. Take it from me
Part of my planning for gumboots! Involves trying to make it “cinematic,” which means an awful lot of thinking about how to manage various aspect ratios in the form of a comic page, without also making the book/gutters too wide and unwieldy.
This is the first time I’ve given a lot of thought to this sort of thing! It’s fun
Here are a couple of gumboots! Characters. One of them is called don riquels. And someday, the other one will be.
You’ve probably noticed a gaping, al-shaped hole in your blogging and webcomics lives for the past few weeks. This is for a few reasons!
First off I have been steadily adjusting to my “brain meds” over the past few weeks. The alarming side effects have more or less stopped by now, so that is just dandy
Number two I’ve been moving back to Boston, for school! This is a thing that makes people busy.
Number three my computer is broke! Not unfixably so, as far as I can ascertain, but still enough to put a serious spanner in the comics making works (also I had the next two pages inked but WHOOPS left those at home)
So that’s where I’m at atm! In the meantime I’ve been mostly “hanging out,” starting to feel like a normal human person again, and most excitingly laying some SERIOUS GROUNDWORK for “Gumboots!” The comic starting spenny the detective, which will be in the form of a trilogy graphic novels, published online and then published in a book or something, hopefully. You can expect that in the next year or two or however long it’ll take me to do the final four or five Bol chapters.
