Making of a Comic

I wrote up one of these looooooong ago, but every step of the process has changed since then. So here's a step-by-step look at how page 134 was made!

Hey folks!

Several pages back, I announced that I was doing a trial run of drawing pages entirely myself-- hence the abrupt style change. (Up until page 117, this was a team effort with Tod Wills providing the pencil sketches that I inked and colored.) I've really enjoyed drawing the comic so far, talked with Tod, and did some serious thinking.

From now on, I will be doing Crimson Flag entirely myself. When I originally enlisted Tod's help, I was not much of an artist at all. I've been practicing every day since then, and this is a challenge I am itching to take on. Obviously this is a major change for the comic, since I draw foxes way more short and cutesy than Tod. This is more towards my original vision of the comic though. Thanks for all your support!

Tod of course is still around! His main comic, Ekwara updates way more frequently than CF. Also, check out his main website and Livejournal.

Thanks for all the help, Tod! I couldn't have gotten this far without you.

Change of Pace

Hey folks!

As most of you probably know, normally I write the comic script, then send that over to Tod of Ekwara fame, who does the base pencil sketches. He sends those to me, and I ink, color, shade, add flashy effects, etc. When I first started this comic over two years ago, I could not draw much at all, so commissioned Tod for his help on the steps I was not confident in (i.e. the base sketches).

Since then, I've been drawing pretty much every single day and feel I'm ready to take on bigger challenges. So just for fun, the next several pages will be drawn entirely by me! My style is a lot shorter and cutsey-er than Tod's, so the transition may be jarring. Sorry.

Bigger Pages

Yeah, those little strips once per week were kinda lame-ish... so let's try some bigger pages for a while.

Also, just for fun, here's the original concept art for the Relran Tree.
