Nearly There...

Running behind schedule again, so much so that fellow DCCer Tidus Sloane has had to take over the pencil art chores for issues 3 & 4. His is a slightly different art style to mine but I'm still inking and colouring the pages so hopefully there will still be some consistency. Check out the snippet above for a taste of TS's work. I don't think anybody will be disappointed. To try and keep a monthly schedule going I think TS and I will have to take turns on the art; he'll do two parts and then I'll do two and so on. The thing is, as well as full time jobs, we are already involved with other small press projects, so Wonder Abbie is done in our sparest of spare time. But we are still passionate about it and we are still dedicated to it. We are having fun with this project and we hope readers stick around to enjoy it with us.

Wonder Abbie Vs Steve #1
Whoa! This one took a while to get up here on the blog. I think we can blame frantic Xmas shopping and over-indulgence at a couple of Xmas parties for the lateness. #2 should be up next Sunday. Enjoy!

More Rough Stuff

Rough version of Wonder Abbie Vs Steve Page 2
Here's the thumbnail for page 2, introducing the Steve of the title. I think I'll refrain from posting the thumbnail for page 3 as that's where all the good stuff happens (wouldn't want to spoil that for ya).

Brand New Format, Same Great Read!

Thumbnail for Wonder Abbie Vs Steve

As I mentioned in a previous post, I've been re-working the format for Wonder Abbie so the art fits better in a web browser. Up there is the rough pencil layout for the first part of Wonder Abbie Vs Steve (Steve is Abbie's creepy workmate in her regular day job but is also something of a nemesis too). Once I'm happy with the layout I'll scan the image into Paint Shop Pro and/or Manga Studio and ink over it digitally. I should then be left with a much cleaner image than the previous Wonder Abbie mini-comic.  Manga Studio is very useful in saving time scanning and cleaning up pages but I still prefer the feel of pencil and paper. Oh well, you can't stop the march of technological progress, I suppose.
Anyway, more layouts and behind the scenes stuff to come.
