Petty Dreadful Progress: Comics Process, Soup to Nuts

February 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Blog

Now that The Front: Petty Dreadful is underway with updates, I plan on blogging the process as I go. I talked about the whys in a recent Lean Into Art podcast. So how do I get from story idea to final comic page? It all starts with a combination of notebooks and Evernote. I jot […]

Petty Dreadful Progress: Introducing Dudley Kourage

Filed under Blog

With today’s update of The Front: Petty Dreadful, we meet a “new” character. Dick Kourage’s brother, Dudley! I put “new” in quotes because Dudley is actually one of my oldest characters. It’s only now that I’ve found a story where it made sense to introduce him. And he’s changed quite a bit from when I […]

Good news first: The Front: Petty Dreadful, is now updating with its first page. You can see it right now on my Tumblr, and soon on Sugary Serials. Now the “it’s complicated” news: It took a lot longer to finish this page than I had anticipated. The original idea was to execute this story the […]

Petty Dreadful Progress: Changing Gears

So after inking my first page of The Front: Petty Dreadful, I was dismayed. As happy as I was to be working on The Front again, it took far longer to pencil, ink, and flat the first page than I anticipated. There are many reasons for this (and I plan on talking about on the […]

Drawing for Myself – Petty Dreadful Progress!

Stole some time today to work on the new Front comic. While I got one page penciled, inked, and flatted all in one afternoon, the truth of the matter is that I’ll have to speed up. I was being far too precious with this page as I penciled it. That’s way tighter than I had […]

Last time I showed how I used Google Sketchup to build a 3D model of a major setting in my upcoming Front comic, Petty Dreadful. Today I took on the next step, coloring the image in Photoshop: It’s not quite done yet, but it’s coming along. Trying out some of the painting techniques Brandon Dayton […]

Drawing for Myself – Using Sketchup for My Settings

Working hard on the new Front comic, entitled Petty Dreadful, and one of the pre-production items I need to take on is the main setting for the story, the MNSA (Multi National Security Agency) headquarters. Like another comic I worked on a few years back, Switch Runners, I plan on making some digital paintings of […]

So after seeing Audra Furuichi draw in Manga Studio at the AADL Comic Artists Forum, then watching a demo by Stephen McCranie on Comics Are Great! 46, I just had to set aside some time to play with this Manga Studio thing everyone in comics seems to be talking about. I kept hearing about how […]

So as many of you probably know, I’m getting ready to start making a new Front comic. The thumbnails are finished. Now it’s just a matter of making time to build a buffer, then get to posting the pages online until the book is complete and I can sell the print and PDF editions. I […]

Doing some more style tests for the upcoming relaunch of The Front, and I thought I’d do a matching desktop for the Run, Mercenaries! one I did a few days back. Click for the full-sized image. Now the heroes and villains are running at each other like in the opening to Challenge of The Superfriends! […]
