Josh has always wanted me to freehand but i told him i sucked at it and drew this page to show him but…HE LIKED IT.
ps these are small panels like 2 by 3 inches larger panels will obviously look better so this is encouraging. That is, it’s giving me COURAGE.
Kav, this page is fantastic. Looking as critically as I can, some of your clothing does not quite hang like it should. Panel 2 does not look like a guy in a suit crouching down. It does not look bad, it just looks off.
Also, the woman in panel 3 has oddly skinny legs.
And that’s about it.
I am very excited about where this is taking you.
dude in panel 2 is wearing a kinetic outfit and the chick is a skinny crack ho.
i also found a way to bluescreen it in gallery:
This recently surfaced on Facebook.
It seems to be a drawing of me by Paul Sizer. Paul is a fantastic artist, designer, and all-around comics creator.
Weird thing is, I have no idea where this drawing came from.
maybe it came from here.
Josh and I were discussing how much I’ve improved in the 2.5 years since I started drawing comics.
here’s the first page I drew for The End of Paradise:
Embarassing, really. And some recent pages:
Here’s the obligatory pic of my family-the dude on the left is a comedy genius.
After working with Josh on some minutia last night, we ended up with this as the final version for the cover. I’m really pleased. The full-sized tiff is in dropbox, boys.
I think that any Superman poses would be TOO hopeful, too confident. Kinetic will be doing the kind of leap where you expect to land hard enough that you will use your hands to stop.
If he is looking coming in like this and looking either right or left, he will seem to be looking up. In fact, if we are at a low angle, anything but down will seem to be up.
I think it’s time for the action figures dude-I’m stumped.
I will try to do something for you tonight.
Just a few minutes ago I got an email from Kav with his first pages for Rapid City #2.
They look amazing.
Not many people can understand the thrill of seeing your words brought to life like that.
I will post some of them here when I get a chance.
I was just talking with my Rapid City artist A. Kaviraj.
The pages that are rolling in are really fantastic. Take a look at this teaser he sent me.
But here’s the crazy part. He’s cranking these pages out at an incredible rate. Even with edits and corrections they are flying out 10 pages a week!
10 in 7 days!
Art keeps coming in as Kav makes progress on Rapid City Book I.
This is the sketch for part of page 10.
Learning the ropes
This is the result of a few back-and-forth exchanges and corrections. Those exchanges are the proof of a very satisfying collaborative relationship.
Kav asks very pointed questions about the pages and I can usually give him very specific answers. I am very proud of that.
Having a beautiful copy of Rapid City #11 in my hands cements the fact that Kav is the artist with whom to move forward with this project.
Actually, I made that decision a while ago. But in comics, things don’t actually happen unless you have pictures of them happening. So, here are the first two panels of the first page of Rapid City #1.
Because I actually started with issue 11, I guess this means that I am launching with a retcon. Fine. So be it!
