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.

Panel 3. My lettering is balls, hopefully it won't take me too long to get the hang of it.

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.
