So for the last 3 weeks I've been hard at work on Lesser Beasts and getting ready for sales and events this summer. Last time I posted I had just begun the comic, and now I have 22 pages complete.
Again, I've made a short 2 minute video that you can watch to see some previews of half and completely finished pages, as well as my process and thoughts so far.
I've really begun to flesh out the main sections of the plot and have been doing a lot of painting. Stay tuned in coming weeks for more updates and information on where to purchase the book. Thanks for your continued support, everyone!
Check out the first video update if you'd like to see the thumbnail sketches for the entire comic!
lesser beasts production update #1
So, there's been a bit of radio silence about this project because I've been whittling away at the thumbnails and making an action plan. But, now I can start talking about what exactly I'm making.
I've made a short little video with some background, but I'll also give the short and sweet explanation of what exactly I'm working on.
Lesser Beasts" (This is a working title, I may or may not change it), is a graphic novel / art book that I am creating with the help of an independent artist grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board. It follows a teenage girl who enters a world of swamp creatures and their spirits. There will be virtually no dialogue in the book, and it will mostly be illustrated by hand using mixed media (but let's not kid ourselves, it will mostly be watercolor).
There are many more details in store that I'll announce as I continue working on the book, so stay tuned for actual finished pages, concept art and almost certainly some struggling.
