Wonder Northwest 2011
Well sports fans, Al here with the latest:
WONDER NORTHWEST 2011
In a strange twist of fate when I thought I would he just pounding coffee next to my drafting table cranking out image after image for the crossover I got a call from an old friend of mine to help out at this show. I had promised myself that I wasn't going to be doing anymore shows till I was done with the crossover but when I got the call to arms (strong arms carrying in comic book long boxes) I went.
Royce Myers has been a long time of mine and has helped me out many times, here was a chance to pay back a little.
Small venue it was but fun today I do plan going to help if I can and hopefully not spend a ton of cash on things that I want but should not buy. With money being freaking tight and printing a high priority I can't.
THE CROSSOVER CONTINUES:
The rough pencils are nearly done. Within roughly a weeks time I belive that all the rough pencils will be completed and the transfers can commence. This will be a great opportunity to place the script into the frame and see how much background I really have to come up wIth. Then inking should begin.
JOHNNY VEGA NEWS
And though I had said that I was going to be focusing on scratchboard Pieces for shows later in the year the thumbnailing bug bit me and I have been in brief moments working on sketching the origin story for Vega. The ACTUAL origin. Thanks to Kat for prodding me to explane his beginnings I sat down and Texted myself the story outline.
And with the infusion of Jason's script on the crossover, I realized that I needed to add a lot more action to the existing story arc of Vega.
I think I have done that. And I'm very happy with the results of the work.
And that it for the kid as I head to the show for a time.
