I've been making a few changes to how I work recently, hoping to speed myself up a lot more. Inking has always been a slow hard slog for me in particular. Sadly my first attempt in drawing/inking/colouring pages for TMNT in Photoshop started far too slowly, but by the last page I realised I had produced it much faster than the first. If only those first two hadn't taken me so long to ink! Still, I feel very good about issue 18.
"But there are no turtles in this entry! What does that have to do with anything?!"
Faster means I finish my daily freelance work with enough time to get a bit of Imaginary Gumbo done every day. Hopefully, fingers crossed, we will have the first minicomic going up on www.imaginarygumbo.com in December.
For now I will be promoting the heck out of it, we'll be at BICS and Thought Bubble this year with Gumbo and Demon Tomato goodies, and lots of sneak peeks and info will end up on www.imaginarygumbo.com over the next couple of months. For now enjoy some Gumbo artwork. And a cartoony Garrus from Mass Effect for no good reason (insert calibrations joke here).
