SO INTENSE Gallery: Final Kickstarter sketches

That’s it! About 300 sketches done (though I only scanned a few at the end) and about 125 waifus completed. I still have to do four illustrated boxes and two paintings, but those can wait until the materials arrive. ON TO COMICS.

PS this sketch should be enjoyed with this soundtrack.

SO INTENSE Gallery: Cupcake Dev + Kickstarter sketches
Cupcake Designs: Profile Stuff

I drew about 270 sketches over the last three days (for the Kickstarter). Almost done. After this is taken care of I’ll be able to draw comics like crazy.

TCAF Stuff

SO INTENSE Hey, so, I’m almost done preparing goods for TCAF 2013. Here’s what I have lined up:

Cupcake Poster – front, Back

Metal Fist/Witches Poster – front, Back

Business Card – Double-sided

The Postcard is a reader appreciation gift. I’ll have a copy of NNN on display, but no actual copies for sale (the books won’t be printed in time).

EDIT: Updated the Witches poster (Metal fist poster back side)

More Inking

SO INTENSE Gallery: Cupcake Development (inking)

I’m grinding all day every day! In today’s batch I tried inking without sketching first. Some of the no-sketch inking results turned out better than I expected. Others turned out worse.

Almost comfortable enough to start doing some actual comic pages this way.

SO INTENSE Gallery: Cupcake Development (inking, faces)

Using nibs + paper is awesome. With this level of control I can finally start working on overcoming my Sameface Syndrome.

SO INTENSE Gallery: Cupcake Development

I missed two comic updates. Sorry. I’ve been putting time into practicing a new production method for Cupcake (and line-drawing comics generally). It’s starting to turn out. Hopefully the result will be faster comics with higher quality and more interesting layouts.

The method is much more traditional: just sketch, line in dark pencil, trace on light table with liner, then scan in and clean. If I can GIT GUD I may be able to go straight from rough to lining in pen, then do very minor cleaning after scanning.
