I'm hurting...

...financially that is. What with the move and me paying about £50 amonth more now than I will be in about 6 months (due to fun charges from BT, TV licensing and Thames water). This has put a dampener on some long term plans I had artwork/comic-wise, but two things are just about ready to go and as I'll only be knocking up a few copies, hopefully these should be ready for printing soon. Here are teasers for a front and back cover of two different things in the pipeline (the drawn piece the first done in the new place!).

Excellent - looking forward to both.

Speaking of covers... you coloured the cover to PJANG #1 yet? I've got money in my Paypal account - I'm ready to K-Blam!

Nice photo realistic art there. The first picture ain't bad either. Though you got Magik's costume all wrong. For a minute I thought you were naming your pin-up book after HG Wells, but I guess that's just the back cover blurb.

And yeah, get a move on with that PJANG cover. Rol's been waiting a year for it :)

Pjang was done afew weeks ago, I'm sending it on a floppy in with Lost and Smallville---been delayed from writing the letter though so I'll try and get it to you asap!

The colour isn't as detailed as I wanted as I made the mistake of colouring the original tiff instead of a resized smaller jpeg: took bloody ages as the brush tools were so small, I had to create a bigger one!

Rol said...

What have you been doing with your time? It's not like you moved house or anything!?

Cheers.

You know you can just adjust the brush size with a slider Nige?

By the way Rol, Ka-Blam are very finicky about file size and format, so I'd triple check em before you send to avoid getting charged extra.

Nige Lowrey said...

Rol, formatting is relatively easy for Ka-Blam (I've just done 50 odd pages myself) but takes a bit of fiddling. If you send me the files on disc, I can format them for you if you want...

Tone, might have to have a look at sliders...never knew about them--only the TV show!

nige, click on brush to get preset brush dropdown, there's a slider at the top of the menu, this adjusts the size of brush. it works the same for brush setting on eraser.

Also you should really colour at printsize otherwise you risk getting moiring on anything not flat block colour
