five hours in and three pages finished...

It's 24 Hour Comics day, once again & around the world!  I'm at the Winooski Welcome Center with many of our usual crew from previous years at Artists' Mediums.  Once again I'm just attempting a twelve page story where everyone else has hopes of doing a full 24 page piece.  


The story seed I pulled out of the bag was "A Seven Goat Coat."  Which has a lot of potential, but right now I feel like I'm just treading water with it.  Five pages plotted out loosely and I'm not sure if it's going to turn into a teenage angst story (don't we have enough of those) or a magical realism story.  


Just one more comment for now:  Urgh, why in the world did I choose to do a story with humans!
(Edited to add that I'm feeling a bit better about the characters now (page 7), but it was a rough climb to get there.)

So awesome that you were brave enough to take on color. I NEVER would have had the cajones to do that with a time limit. I can hardly wait to see the rest!

Thanks, Jeff! It helped that I'd only set myself a 12 page goal. That's what I was able to complete last year while doing host-stuff, so I figured the same for this year. Each page got pencilled, inked & painted before i moved onto the next. Whew!

I scripted mine usually rough storyboarding it as I wrote page by page, then when I drew it, I would draw (I don't pencil except for the the panel borders) and letter each page as I went.

Your humans looks great...I never would have thought that you had trouble with them until you said something!
