And Kirkee got super scary…
That’s chapter 11! There’s still a lot more to wrap up before the end of Book One. I hope you’re looking forward to chapter 12.
I got more work done last week, but not as much as I would have liked. However, over half of Velharthis is ready for inking. I was camping on the weekend, so that bit into my art time, but it was very much worth it to get out and connect back with nature, even if I am now covered in mosquito bites.
I hope you all are doing well. To those in the northern hemisphere: how is your summer going? To those in the southern hemisphere: how is your winter coming along? I hope it is not too cold where you are.
I didn’t really get much work done on anything last week. I had a lot of in-real-life work to do that made me feel very lazy at the end of the day. I also ran into an issue with two pages, which I have solved by literally cutting up the pages and retaping them together in a better order. Sometimes, comics is more like crafting. Very amusing.
I’m almost halfway done sketching chapter 12, which is good. I’m hoping the second half comes along much smoother than the first half did.
Another week, another status update.
Our first full week without new comic pages, but I have 10 (of 28) pages sketched and ready to ink.
As before, I’ll finish chapter 12 completely before I start to post it. I don’t anticipate it taking as long to complete as chapter 11 did. And for those of you keeping score, the time between the end of chapter 10 and the start of chapter 11 was 4 months. Not an ideal gap, for sure. The gap between chapters 9 and 10 was only three months, and between chapters 8 and 9 a mere week (the preferred time gap).
All that being said, you guys seem to appreciate the status updates, so of course I’ll do them on a weekly basis until a release date is at hand. Also, I’ll try to get around to doing the character bios, as was requested. That one keeps slipping through the cracks
Chapter 11 came to an end on Monday this week. Thus begins the wait for chapter 12! And I’m hoping to not make it a long one.
This weekend I was able to completely finishing penciling some pages (4, to be exact). Everything else is in various stages of completion.
I have taken on some commissions and other projects recently that will have to share time with working on Velharthis. But I’ll keep updating here at least once a week to let you know about how the comic is going. 🙂
Oh god, we’re starting with this again, are we? It worked well for the previous chapter (which isn’t done until July, btw) so I’m sticking with it.
I’ve gotten the pages for chapter 12 roughed out. This step just involves putting down the panels for all the pages in the chapter, and roughing in text bubbles, characters, etc. This chapter will be the longest, I think (at 28 pages).
Now I get to pencil in everything, which often takes the longest amount of time (usually a few weeks).
