Been a few tumbleweeds blowing through here recently so thought I'd post a quick update and after rejecting a post about how much I hate public transport (when really it boils down to the people on public transport), gonna revert to the old art posts again.
I picked up an issue of Crikey! to read on the train and enjoyed the article on Romero, who used to draw both Axa and Modesty Blaise. I've never read any Modesty but always liked the idea but the density of the recent collections can be off putting...I think I need to look at them again for another considered choice for a purchase. I thought I'd try a Modesty Blaise pic but don't like her usual hairdo so changed it, resulting in a fairly generic 60s gal instead. Dunno if I'll ever get around to colouring this as it's only so/so.
After a few quick points for Rol (a logo to send to Dave and thumbnailed cover designs for Rol's approval), work continues apace on Silver. I lost some pencilling time this weekend due to catching up with pals in London but still managed to complete two pages of pencils (plus the Modesty pic). I was quite chuffed to manage a whole page of inks tonight and realise that's due to few panels with minimal backgrounds. I'm still worried about these pages being panel heavy but I'm trying to keep the page count as low as possible as I want to get started on submissions next month. I've worked out the general plot for this story but still need to complete all the layouts but I reckon another six pages will bring the page count up to 13, which will probably run alongside a touched up reprinting of the last Silver one-shot, probably with a short new conclusion to that long-forgotten cliffhanger.
