minicomics live 3, post 16– new page 8 pencils

minicomics live 3– post 15 (the thing about inking)

The thing about inking, the way I do it at least, is that it takes a while to see results.   I don’t ink one page and go on with the next.  I work on several pages at once, doing one … Continue reading

minicomics live 3– post 14 (page 8 pencils)

First of all, sorry for the delay.  I actually finished penciling this last panel very soon after the post about page 6 went up.  This post has been delayed due to minor technical difficulties, so just pretend this is still … Continue reading

minicomics live 3- post 13 (page 6 pencils)

Yowza! It’s page 6.  Doesn’t look very impressive, does it?  Just a page of minicomics pencils, somewhat oddly designed with large figures in an open panel on the top, and smaller ones below.  It’s certainly not the most elegant page … Continue reading

minicomics live 3– post 12 (page 7 pencils)

Back in the saddle– slept off the headache, got the scanner to reset itself, set page 6 (which is giving me fits)  aside temporarily, went to the movies. (How did that last one get in there?)  Anyway, here’s page 7, … Continue reading

minicomics live 3– post 11 (page 5 pencils)

Well, I tore this one up and rebuilt it a bunch of times, and I’m still not sure  I didn’t do something really wrong in panel 3.  It’s all a setup for panel 4, which is going to work beautifully … Continue reading

minicomics live 3– post 10 (page 4 pencils)

The centerpiece of Perpetual Motion is the conversation between Bud and the inventor on pages 4 and 5 and the first part of page 6.  I decided this morning to lay it out all at once to make sure it … Continue reading

minicomics live 3– post 9 (page 3 pencils)

Now things are really starting to get moving.  Some may be disappointed in the trophy, but don’t worry– I plan to add more stuff to it as the story moves along and I see how it fits into all the … Continue reading

minicomics live 3– post 8 (page 2 pencils)

Here’s page 2.  Artistically, it’s really a matter of starting to establish the characters and their relationship to each other.  There’s a big difference between drawing Bud and Josef, who are members of the core cast that I’ve drawn many … Continue reading

minicomics live– post 7 (page 1 pencils)

I did get a little bit of a late start today, but most of the reason this first page is appearing well after noon is that it took a really, really long time to pencil.  It looks simple, but it … Continue reading
