Well the next panel is inked, all but the text/dialogue or what have you. So I'll have to get 2 panels up tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a bit of life-drawing from last night. The "one minute" poses the model was doing were more along the lines of 15 second poses, so I ended up spending most of the session drawing my fellow artists. I wish I would have got this guy when he was sporting his leather cowboy hat.

Here's panel 2. I'm a bit frustrated with my scanner, it blows out to white about 5% of my ink washes. I'll have to go a bit darker from now on, bump up the contrast on the page. I'm already catching a few bad habits with my technique, so this will be a good chance to squash those before my next freelance assignment pops up.
So since freelancing has slowed to a trickle lately, I've decided to keep myself occupied by doing a comic-strip. I'm going to do one a day for as long as I don't have any work coming in. I figure this will give me a good reason to work on my writing, landscapes and environments in general, and my inking. Oh yeah, I'm going to keep these 100% traditional, so I'm going to have to suppress my ever present urge to redo everything in photoshop. I have very little idea where this is going, and I haven't written any short-story type stuff since college, so bear with me here. It's gonna get messy.
