WHAT NEW WORLDS LIE AHEAD pages 1-4


Today I finished painting page four of this comic. 

The photo shows pages one to four.

These pages have all been scanned and blacks added in photoshop.

One more page to go, which will be different than these four.

TAY BRIDGE DISASTER COMIC photos and inks

I travelled over to Wormit this morning to take photos of the Tay Bridge, specifically looking to get pictures which included the stumps of the old collapsed bridge.

When I got back I pencilled the third and final panel, and then inked all of it.

I like the line drawings of the crash panel. I scanned that drawing and might do something with it. I'll be adding the watercolour black and white tones to the whole thing tomorrow.
