First Page Colored.

Whoops, didn't write for two weeks! Anyway, here's the first page of my comic (title still undecided) with basic colors and text added in. The finished version will look less flat.

Another drawing! Yeah!

So, here's a second drawing that again, I drew back in June, but I just finished coloring it today. Enjoy. Oh, by the way, this was the first concept sketch of the main character in my comic. Again, it looks better at full size.
It's not very detailed, but it was intended only as a sketch, so I just spruced it up with a little color. The character himself looks slightly different now--and wears a better outfit. You'll see what he looks like when I finish coloring the first page of the comic. I'm working on that now!

And, of course, Obama won. The election is over, after 20 months. I'd like to leave this event behind with a picture I found. This was created by RubberNinja, a member of Newgrounds.
I'm not even going to say anything, just let that sink in. Go Obama!

Graphic Novel!

So, here's my first status update on my yet-unnamed graphic novel. I have the first three pages penciled and inked, and intend to color them as well. I hope to get at least ten pages done by the end of November.
I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but I will say it takes place 900 years in the future, on Earth. I tried to make the setting, for the most part, as realistic as possible, taking into account things like the absence of fossil fuels and how that would affect technological development. Everything is electric-powered in this world. I'm having fun redrawing the world map and thinking about what events might rearrange the borders of various nations in the next millennium.
It's an interesting project and I'm confident that I'll be able to finish it. I'll upload the draft of the first page soon.
