The art above is something I've apparently lost the high rez version of the finish. The version shown was cobbled together with high rez line and scaled up color. But I did a lot to the line to take it to a finish not shown in this version.
(Now in the new line up.)
I wanted to blog but felt it was necessary to contribute visually. I am super out of practice. One thing or another has kept me away from drawing more than crap on post-its for more than a year now it seems.
Nonetheless, months ago I wrote a thesis on how the comic book store killed the comic book. An interview of comic book writer Chuck Dixon validated my thesis to some extent. Promoting his writing for the graphic novel of Clinton Cash, Dixon was asked why the comic book readers couldn't dissuade the corporate overlords from introducing faddish PC elements into the comic books much like gamers did. Dixon answered that there just aren't enough comic book readers to make a difference. In the nineties, for reasons of their own, the comic book companies removed themselves from the newsstands and went to the comic book stores. He said he felt the impact of that decision immediately on his royalties checks. He also mentioned that Disney and Warner Bros. are actually not interested in comic book production and are seriously considering stopping the production of new issues and relying solely on repackaging their library.
A little change of pace from time of legend type fantasy stuff.
I'll probably finish them tomorrow.
Hard part is done.
Made a mess but decided I had done enough. Took about 3 hours.
Color after I get back from my walk, lunch and a nap. We'll have a new presidente by then.
No new President yet. 9:44pm-Oct 8
I working on a record. 4 would be a record, but after this 4th one, I'm told there is another. 5 times 40. 200 bucks of spendable money.
Inks and the flats.
I'll give it a break and do color tomorrow.
this was more trouble than it should have been. Some initial bad drawing and laziness. It's still a mess.
I got TWO extra jobs. 6 for the month. They're attempting to give me Christmas money.
Slipped in one more.
I'm almost burned out on the projects at this point. Ready to call it a month and get back to personal projects. Who knows, Christmas, Dec, they may take the whole month off. That may be half the reason for all the extra for times off.
