Bailey and Del pg. 1 by JeyBarnes Bailey and Del pg. 1 by JeyBarnes
Next / Third / Fourth

So in between working on that one comic with ~SunshineKitE that I've been annoying you all about, I'm doing this other, slightly-experimental one. Children of Maea probably won't go live for another several MONTHS so I figure this will keep me sane (both because I get to use real media--CoM is digitally colored--and because I DON'T HAVE TO HOARD IT AWAY FOREVER AS I FINISH THE PAGES :8D).

Set this comic at night, I says. Coloring stuff at night can't be that hard, I says.
POPPYCOCK.

I'll try to get page two up within about a week! There will only be six or seven of them.

This looks really promising! I saw the sketchy version of stripey-arm-shush in your Tegaki X) *sneakystahshapedninja*
Your perspectives make me jealous.
Also: looks like you! X) Or how you draw you, at any rate.

Beautiful page, I especially like the surroundings. And that and that little speech bubble with crayons (I don't think I would have noticed it if it weren't for our little crayon-marker-pencils chat earlier...) is a really nice touch. Luvverly!

Those darn oranges...

Haha, thanks! I'm glad you like the texture vs. it looking like I haven't learned how to properly use markers. "Dreamlike." I dig it!

That's really creepy. I just hope that's actually this Del fella and not some random "stripey person"

Oooh, this looks really fun and mysterious and atmospheric. I LIKE. Yeah, it must be good to do some real-media coloring after all the digital CoM stuff. Which is AWESOME, but you need to switch it up, or all that digital will get boring. I'M EXCITED.

Also, I'm growing to love those circular panels. WHO KNEW?

The thing is when I do DIGITALDIGITALDIGITAL there is always the fear in the back of my mind that I'll forget how to use real media. Plus it's more satisfying to have a finished product I can hold. : D

YAY for the circular panels. They just have a different impact for me than rectangles, which I like.

Thank yous!
