Here’s the inks and character colors from THIS COMIC.
Considering how muted the colors in the final strip ended up being, I thought I’d post this to show how bold they were in the beginning. Sometimes I don’t like having to sacrifice big, bold color for atmosphere.
A couple of Walking Dead comic rough sketches.
Here’s the rough sketch of the next HE comic, made in Procreate on the iPad with a Pogo Connect Stylus.
The new panel layout that I’m using is forcing me to make more interesting choices with the “shot framing.” I can’t have two full body characters facing each other and talking so I’m having to move the “camera” around. It’s like shooting a movie in a small room versus a giant sound stage, and it’s making me push my art into a more interesting direction that (so far) I’m pretty happy with.
This reminds me of young George Lucas chasing the camera around a swamp, or getting into the crawl space of the Falcon, or going for the close up because the whole scene, all of the emotion lives in the actor’s face. Which is in stark contrast to old George Lucas, sitting in a comfortable chair with a latte, while every single shot is composed of every single actor, full body, full frame, sitting on a couch across from each other or walking down a hall. I don’t want to be a giant, lazy asshole like that guy.
Rough sketch for the comic I’m drawing right now. Did this on the iPad in ProCreate with the Pogo Connect Stylus.
Here’s the rough sketch for the “Tesla Uncoiled” comic.
In the 2nd image you can see the comic was originally much longer. I couldn’t fit in all the dialog so I made some painful cuts. Writing it editing and the final product is tighter, despite lacking the additional jokes.
I sketched my stupid ass cat, Replay, on my iPad.

Here are a few more rough sketches from recent comics.
Here’s the rough sketch for the Muppet comic I posted yesterday.
Comic rough sketch dump time!
