JOURNEY INTO SPACE (INTERRUPTED): Page 1 pencils



Last night's research got me the answers I needed (thanks, Arthur C. Clarke online forum).

So this morning was spent rewriting and laying out page 1.

This work is on the left of the photo.

On the right are the pencils which were done in the afternoon.

JOURNEY INTO SPACE (INTERRUPTED): Page 2 pencils



Today I've been pencilling page 2 of this story. I have skipped page 1 for now as I had a rethink about it this morning, which requires me to do some research. I'll do that tonight.

The working title for this story has changed since yesterday. It's liable to do so again.

The dimensions I'm drawing this at are standard US comic page size, which is not my usual working method. I therefore had to spend quite a bit of time working on the template for it.

Will move backwards to pencil page 1 tomorrow (assuming my research is successful).

LOVE IN LOCKDOWN page 4 inks



Here are the page 4 inks.

I've tidied it up, added colour in Photoshop, and sent it off to the editor.

Putting on my production hat tomorrow and starting to put page files together for my next comic, Mount a Rescue.
