I haven't been to deviantArt for a long while. I can blame it on myself for working so hard on the next comic book story. It consist of 50+ pages, and I only got 16 or so pages done.
But looking at the pages I've done. Some of the panels are going to be redone. Not because I'm a perfectionist, but I rather do it right, than sending off my work, where I know I could fix it. There might be no deadlines, but I keep on drawing where I can and try to get far this year. Maybe I can get it done sooner than later...
I did noticed that my drawing got better and a bit faster. With my inking technique, I'm still getting hang of it. Steady hands or not, I'm happy with the outcome.
Colouring stage is still in the early stage. Might want to do ink wash style in Photoshop or just full on halftones effect like in manga. Oooor bit of both... I want to keep it black and white and maybe some colours in some chapter break pages. We'll see once its done in the ink and lettering stage.
I don't know who will publish it or is it gonna be digital or self-published... But heck, it was for the Skyve imprint, so I'll stick with them till something comes up.
I would like to heads up on few friends, Alan Cuba , congrats on being the magic box called TV, Sin Bin for kicking my ass with her work ethic, Ray , that bastard is going places again and stop letting your body get tortured in the process.
OH! My website (xam-illustration.co.za/) is updated and it looks nifty. Still few kinks to iron out. Otherwise, its so SHINY!!!
