Well, completing two pages of inks for Lonely Boy this weekend means I've now completed the art for the 8-pager and the quality is variable but nothing too irksome (panel featured below). Also posted is the completed Ms Marvel...I kinda gave up on this so it's not that impressive but again is serviceable. I now find myself ready to do samples but have yet to decide what yet so want to try doing a head shot on an A5 watercolour pad to see how compatible my pens and pencils are with the rougher paper stock.
Last night I had great delight watching My Name Is Bruce, which is immense cheesy fun that looks great for its eensyweensy budget. This made me laugh out loud more than many a big budget comedy has done, so I'd heartily recommend a viewing but as humour is subjective and I like Bruce Campbell anyway, I'd be reluctant to suggest it as an immediate buy. Having said that, the Making Of feature is pretty funny in its own right too and I'll be looking forward to the commentary...
Also taking the opportunity to catch up on my reading whilst in between projects. Read the final colour Bone collection today (I have the black and white run and was considering the One Volume collection but thought the coloured version made a nice alternative, as it works better read in chunks) and the second The Sword collection by the Luna Brothers, now have just All Star Superman Vol 2 and the Perry Bible Almanack to read. Excited by the news that DC has announced plans to publish Adam Hughes: Covers To Covers next year...good thing my bookshelves have a lot of space now! (Well, SOME space...)
I picked up My Name Is Bruce from Amazon, who I mainly use for books and DVDs now but was disappointed to see that they were unable to supply The Jungle Book...this was an IDW translation of a Eurocomic version and it was only the cover art that intrigued me. I could find no interior art online and have seen no copies in the shop so reluctantly bought it blind, taking advantage of Amazon's considerable discount. I then checked and saw it was now listed in stock again but with a higher cover price...so, I e-mailed Amazon to basically ask woddafug and so I've just reordered it as they offered to charge me the original price (just over £2 less).
