Day 35: Surprise money!

Gots stuff done!! Yay me!!

First I got the missing details from yesterday's panel ..yeah, I neglected to say there were details missing, didn't I? Well, they're filled in now. 

And as it's Euromillions Friday, here's hoping someone throws an envelope full at cash at you. 

Have a awesome weekend, everyone. 

If you want to learn more about Jon Pay or Gus MacDugal, there are three comics available on ComiXology (for a very reasonable price if I do say so myself... and I'm a cheapscape...)

Day 34: Another day

Okey, did you see yesterday's post ?!? Even I thought there were some cool stuff in there. If you didn't see it, I hope you check it out. 

Junior is getting better but I'm still behind. Should be all caught up tonight... or at least so I hope. 

Here's today's update. New day in Cobb City and Jon Pay is on his way to his office. I do not consider myself a good caricaturist by any measure, but hopefully some of you may recognise the group of homeless men trying to earn a dollar or two by singing on the street. If you do figure out who they are suppose to be, let me know below. They'll be back in a few panels and again in a few pages. The ever grown supporting cast...

Day 33: lots to see

Again pressed for time. Only got some time here and some time there, got to do a little bit of different things. 

First off, here is the final panel of the top half of page. 18. Doesn't sound like a big deal, but I work in half pages (sometimes even more than half, depending on the layout of the page). That means I've filled in the missing characters from yesterday



I also discovered that I had accidentally saved enough screenshots to make a progression video of the top half of page 18. It's only 40 seconds long (with music this time) and you'll get to see a little more of how I work. 




I also ended up with a little computer time, which never happens. As a result I finished lettering an earlier page, page 11. Now, I can't show you the whole thing, as there are one or two minor (or major...) spoilers in the first few panels. Still, you get some cool panels.

Day 32: Day-es Interruptus 2

A little boy is still not a 100% and a slightly older girl who has a serious case of Igotwhatrestoclassgoticitis, evidently only cure-able by major doses of chocolate buttons and iPad sessions... end result, I'm falling behind. 

As you can see, I always try to ink the background first . I do this because the background pretty much has to look a certain way and once it's done, it is easier to ensure that your characters stand out

Day 31: Dies intermissus

Junior wasn't feeling well last night and today, so not too much progress. The invisible people, Jon, Jack and Ella, have appeared.



Admission number one, I do not speak Latin. 

Admission number two, there may be a clue to one of the mysterious situations in Jon Pay, PI: Prizefighters & Knickerbockers in this panel, but you'll have to read to full story to get it. So patience!!

Day 30: Another milestone, timewise

I'm am proud to have made it to day 30, another small milestone like the completion of a page or a round number of days logged. The purpose was to keep me focused and to keep me pushing forward with this story that has been on my drawing table for so long. It's a story I am very proud of and I want to show to anybody who wants to see it. And I am getting there. I would love to hear from you who are kind enough to check in with me every once in a while, to ask me questions about the different characters, about how I work, to tell me I'm doing it wrong or simple say hi. But at the end of the day, I do this for me. This was my dream: to create comic album like the ones I grew up reading. I'm getting there and I will get there.

So thank this for checking up on me. I hope you come back and help me see this through to the last panel of that distant last page.

Here's my update for today, a little late,  but what the hey.

First another face to go along the faces from yesterday's post. And I also include the body to go along with the face today.


And also, background work on the next panel. It's like an invisible man comic... or even better, invisible people comic!?!YEAH!! Why haven't I thought of that sooner...

This was my post on day 30... imagine how mooshy I'll be on day 50 or 100...
