On track

I've started laying out the next strip. Set to go up on Wednesday. I'm considering making that my official update day, and anything inbetween is a bonus.

I've been doing all kinds of outlines, sketchwork, character design, and what not that are really helping me shape the comic. I've got a lot of vision for where I want this to go and I'm excited to get there. Look forward to new exciting things!!

Pressing on!

Well, the shading is done, page 11 is up, the site has been adjusted, and I'm still working away. I need to make some changes to the site that will make the navigation a bit easier. I have a lot of links that don't lead back to the main page, requiring excessive use of the "back" button. Fear not! This will soon change.

Hope everyone is enjoying the comic, I spent about three and a half hours on the latest page. I really wanted to get a strong sence of place and atmosphere in this panel. So I took a little advice from Scott McCloud and hopefully it worked out.

Anyways, not much to say for today. I will be posting more indepth blogs about making comics, and the comic world in general in the near future. That's all for now though, have a great wednesday!

Working away

Well, I'm half way through shading the first ten strips and it's looking good so far. The shading is adding a ton of depth to the strip (at least in my opinion) and hopefully will make it a lot easier to read.

If all goes according to plan, the shaded strips, along with page eleven should be up some point on monday. The website itself is still a bit bare bones right now, which I kind of like to some degree. I don't really want a crazy flashy site, it needs to be clean, easy to navigate, and pleasing to the eyes. So expect to see some things changing around over the next week or so.

On a side note, you should all go check out Mike Maihack's website and purchase his new book "Cow and Buffalo in Adventures in Sandwhich Making" It's a great little book and the bonus art is great. So stop sitting around reading this blog, go buy the book! www.cowshell.com Go there!

Reworking Wizard and Snort

So I will be taking the next few days to go back in and shade the pages of W&S. I had been considering doing this for a while, and now I think I'm going to go ahead and do it. It gives the artwork so much more depth, and I think if I execute it properly, it will make the comic easier to read.

I've posted an example of what the shaded pages will look like. This is subject to change.

The Beginning

Well, I finally started up a blog. I will be posting bits from my comic, illustrations, and various thoughts and happenings in the comic world.

To kick things off, here's an illustartion I did for Emily, for valentines day =)

Also, page 10 of Wizard and Snort went up today.
