Playing Forward

My internet connection was acting a bit wonky yesterday so I never got a chance to put this post up. Sorry about that but better late than never.

The latest and final book in the current contract is all penciled and ready to go to inks. A few changes here and there and then the ink will begin flowing.

Actually, since this is a day late the ink has already been flowing and it's going really well so far. I was up until around 3m last night scanning the newly done pages back into the computer so I could add grays.

I'm also doing a few last minute artist and author illustrations for the back of each book. I've done the quick marker sketches to make sure everyone is happy with how they look (I'm never happy with how I look so drawing myself is always an angst ridden ordeal...but, I got it done.) I just need to make sure Steve, the writer, is happy with the way I portrayed him and I can continue on those.

The funny thing about the author illustrations is that I was asked if I could do them in a last minute email. Before I could say "yes, I could" or "no, I'm too busy" they had already sent the reference for the illustrations with a note saying "thanks, we look forward to seeing the results." I'm not sure if this is confidence in me or simply taking advantage of me. Once I get this work done and my head clears I'll have to think about that.

But for now, more inking inking inking! Have a great day!
