Day 55: a little bit more color.

Like I said yesterday  just one of those days. Almost there with the fan art piece.

Day 54: ...a little of this...

Apologies. Been a bit emotional here the last few days, and I fear we have a few more coming. As a result, I had no chance to post yesterday. 

I'm also keeping myself distracted, so yesterday I worked more on the pirates



And I was really trying to finish coloring my fan-art for today. I came up short, but hopefully tomorrow.  Here's a small part that's done.

Day 53: Another distraction...

Okey, so another thing came up... I wonder if I'm on to one of the reasons this is taking so long. I was asked to do Apple Order Nummer character sketches for a story. The sketches escalated a little... I can show one or two close ups as these faces are gonna change again. And I don't know if I'll be able to show the finished piece for a while. 

Anyway, here they are.

Day 51: ...and now for something completely different...

A little late and a little different. Needed a little break from inking. I did this black and white fan art piece of Ciaran Marcantonio's A ClockWork Universe  almost exactly a year ago. I know because another event ended up taking place later that day, which was not as nice. As such I thought it would be a good way to commemorate both by improving (hopefully) one of these memories for the anniversary. As such, I started coloring the piece. For those of you who know me, I don't consider myself a colorist by any measure of the term. I'll do it in a pinch, and on occasion I do enjoy it. But there are far superior colorists out there whom I prefer to work with, talented people like Frank M. Cuonzo and Chris O'Halloran. Anyway, here are the flats. Will attempt to finish it by the anniversary, but we'll see...


Now back to inking....

Day 50: This is done, right?

I blame USS Callister!! Without its existence, I would have gotten more done and been able to mark Day 50 better... then again, those fifty days have not been as consecutive as I would have liked, so maybe I'll save the bells and whistles for day 75 or day 100. Unfortunately, not all the blog-"reports" can be as cool as yesterday's or Day 43 or even 23

Anyway, this is done, right?

Day 49: Words words words

Today is a lettering update. Another page finished. Page 13!! Yay. That two more pages than both Jon Pay, PI vs. Machine-Gun Kelley and Jon Pay, PI: The Comedy is Over.  That being said, I am currently inking page 18, which means I have inked more pages than Jon Pay, PI: Bullets, Babes & By-lines and the most consecutive Jon Pay pages to date... I know I'm sad, but this is one of MANY ways I attempt to motivate myself. 

Anyway... here are some pretty pictures with some word balloons covering up the art I worked so hard on... not really. I try my best to roughly place the text before I start drawing, to avoid doing just that. You'll also get supportive characters galore here. 

First off is El Billy Tremendo, the current, heavyweight champion of Cobb City. He is facing off with Jack Knightley

Then we have Jacks manager, Alfie Brown. He is an old friend of Jon. 

Finally, we have Rodney Hatchett and Don Primo


As always, I would love to hear any thoughts and comments you may have. Do you agree with my balloon-layout? Do you like my characters? Do you not like them? Let me know below.
