Mexican Bat woman

October 6th, 2016

Until this morning I’d never heard of Mexican Bat Woman. It’s one part Batman 1966 tv show, one part Mexploitation Luchador movie, all parts bootleg.
It’s pretty much custom built for me to like it. Posting link here for when I have time to watch it.

This one is pretty mammoth. And I’ve been reading it for a bit, but still nearly 1,000 pages to go.(This one is bigger than the Bible)

A couple quick concept sketches of the Characters Boy and His Giant, and the villainous Nazi,robot, T-Rex known as Hitler’s Rex. All characters were originally published in the early 1940’s in Clue Comics through Hillman Publishing. they’ve since entered the Public domain.

Script process.

May 10th, 2016

Comics are an interesting art form. In that there’s never been a 100% standard form for many of the processes. Script writing for comics is for example much less draconian than say screen writing is. Anyone that has read up on the subject has likely read anecdotal stories of scripts being tossed out offhand due to the wrong font, of spacing used on the title page of a script.

Comics on the other hand by and large have been have been left out in the hinterlands without such overbearing rules to the format.

For instance a quick look through The Comic Book Script Archive and you’ll notice that virtually no two scripts are formatted exactly the same. But each example there does exactly what it needs to. It tells the story for the artist to interpret. (These are by and large all full script method as opposed to plot first/script last Marvel Method) Some authors go into more or less detail on what is or isn’t in a panel. Some go into more detail on the precise layout of the panels. Others leave room for the artist to come up with breakdowns.

With all that in mind I thought maybe it’d be interesting to work on a comic strip in a fish bowl so to speak. Usually I hide away scripts/pencils/inks until such point as all the pages are completed and at the very least lettered.

Maybe it could be interesting to instead share the process from beginning to end. Have the script available from day one as I work on the strip itself. Maybe having it out there, will inspire me to work faster? I’m not sure but I think it’s worth a shot. Anyway, below is a pdf of one of the scripts I’m currently working on producing. Give it a look. And feel free to let me know what you think.

I’ve been away from my drawing boards for the better part of a couple weeks. Due to a quick turn around writing project I was working on, and an all too brief but great anniversary trip out of town. In an attempt to get back into some kind of groove, I figured I’d play around with graphite powder washes and see what comes of it. Just playing around to see what would happen. I had zero plan and just mixed the dust up with alcohol and smeared it on. Once it was dry I picked out some shapes with a white chalk pencil and darkened a few spots with a 5B.
