I'm psyched. Having almost gotten rid of this damn headcold that ruined my long-weekend, I still managed to keep working on DIGESTED.03 and stay on a roll.
In only 3 days I've thumbed, pencilled, layed out, and inked two pages on my lunch breaks and spare hour-or-two after work. Telling you this on my blog isn't me bignoting myself, but rather me telling the devil on my shoulder to get lost. I figure if I say & show it here, and don't follow through, I'll embarass myself.
Again, every little mind game I play that serves in getting the work done is absolutely worth it.
I've started to try and keep the finished pages in some sort of file system by using a simple 'avery' sticker, so that I can archive them after the chapter is done. Right now the pages of previous issues are all over the place and in pieces.
While I try and ink the page to the best of my abilities, I don't care about it being a perfect 'work of art' that I'll sell some day. Who cares. I always say that 'the page you read in the book is the final page'.
Anyway, I don't worry about imperfections during inking. I fix all the 'daggy bits' on the computer after I've scanned it in.
... and here's a low-resolution of the finished page before i polish all the rough edges off on the computer. Now, now this is all you're getting for now... I still want you to buy the actual book you know. - :)
Oh, and I finally got to try out my new refillable brush pen. I can't really ink with a brush well. I'm a nib man myself, but I do use one (ever so carefully) when I need a really thick line. But the baby in the photo above (although crappy for proper detailed work) is perfect for filling in all the black areas. It was only $10 and even came with 2 spare brush heads! It's a no-name asian brand... but it's the tits!
