So I’m finally making 5 x 3 into a full length book. And by full length I mean comics full length. It will include everything that I’ve done so far, plus the 5 x 3 presents special that I did for a class, and a few extras to fill out some subject areas.
I would like to say that’s why you haven’t seen anything from me in awhile, but that’s only a partial excuse and not wholly true. In any case, I aim to be back now and putting out more stuff again.
I got a tablet a few weeks ago (I know, totally unnecessary given my artistic non-talent) but I wanted something that looked cleaner and prettier than my terrible pencils/pens. However, as I’m learning more about my tablet and the software I’m using the panels are getting better and better. You might think, “well why is that a problem?” Because it’s going to make the parts I’ve already done look really awful by comparison. Also I’m not drawing it in a linear fashion, so the crap will be interspersed with the not-as-crap.
So now the challenge becomes, do I go back and redraw the panels I’ve already done? I probably will because I can’t stand the inconsistency.
Anyway, I’m hoping to be able to distribute ACTUAL PHYSICAL BOOKS when this is all done, so if you’re at all interested, let me know.
