mushawasing: a new story on “read a comic”

Go down to The Woods at night.  Down by the creek, without even a flashlight, you may see something … mysterious.  And maybe it will change your whole life. Even if it doesn’t, it makes a rather sweet but slightly … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 22 (page 12 pencils, and questions)

Here’s a page that raises more questions than it answers, not a good trait in the last page of a story.  My original story concept had the moose being left alone in the courtyard, then transforming.  But once again, Gideon … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 21 (page 11 pencils)

Scroll down and check how closely this penciled page corresponds to the scribble layout.  Some, I guess, but nothing faithful.  The big change is in the lower tier, where it’s has clearly become a succession from closeup, to “normal” distance, … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 19 (page 10 pencils)

The last three pages of this story are evolving rapidly.  It’s the nature of this particular little beast to switch back and forth between wordy pages and silent ones (or between Iowa and Suki?), and in this mime page I … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 18 (page 9 pencils)

minicomics live 5– post 17 (page 8 pencils)

Back from our little weather-related break (I shut down the ancient desktop during thunderstorms) with page 8.  I had to go deep into photo references to get the proportions of people to car close to right.  It was very poor … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 15 (page 7 pencils)

What a lot of words on this page!  And careful readers will notice that I cut a whole long sentence out of Iowa’s speech in the last panel. The script is too long for the comic, or I should have … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 14 (page 6 pencils)

I platooned pages 6 and 7 for no particular reason, then had some problems with the ancient scanner (ancient scanner is ancient), so here are the last two pages for today in quick succession. Note the parallels between the top … Continue reading

minicomics live 5– post 13 (page 5 pencils)

Page 5 is more head and shoulders talking, but there are at least some gestures and grabbing and sarcasm that might hold your interest.  Plus Suki makes moose antlers.  I was thinking while I was drawing this page that Garage … Continue reading
