So I spent the better part of 2 days really flushing out the story for Conflagration, and the Prequel, Embers. There is some awesome imagery in those 2 stories, if I do say so myself.
I started sketching some of the scenes and for once, liked something enough to take it beyond a doodle, or a gesture.
Victor and Nakia
I can't decide whether I want to go full colour with this, or play with warm and cool greys. Anyway, just thought I'd share it before I butcher it with colours and ink, LMAO.
Ps: I'm fairly certain this is the cleanest sketch I've ever produced, Lol.
So November is NanoMango. Today was the first I heard of it too.
It's something someone started on livejournal (unfortunately) as a Comic artists alternative to NanoWriMo.
I've decided that while this is an extremely ambitious goal to have, I'm going to try to make the prequel to Conflagration, Embers, In this time frame. The goal is a page a day of pencilled comics, and with a full time job besides.. I don't know if I can do it, but I'm sure going to try. I'm working on scripting it out right now, and have layout complete before November 1 so that It's a more obtainable goal.
Embers should be at least another comic to have going to sell at conventions and to generate some interest in my biggest awesomest story I have going right now. Unfortunately because I've been working with these characters so long, everyone knows OF it but really nothing about it. So hopefully this will be an asset to my comic pile. I'm still planning on having Hello, Albertosaurus done by the summer of 2012, then a couple Mini Projects in there as well (2 of them I'm very keen on) then Full production on Conflagration. How cool!
