I finally finished coloring the second Granulated Gravel
short comic. Another six pages! (which I'll submit either later tonight or tomorrow; depending on whether I'll be able to sleep later or not). I'm pretty happy with how it came out but not too thrilled about how much time it took to finished. I will admit I procrastinated with finishing it but there were also other factors (which I won't go into detail about). And based on the efforts and colorings of the first two short comics, I decided that GRAVEL
will be in black and white. Which means you guys will see it much sooner. But first things first: finishing the storyline (the first part anyway). Granulated Gravel
#2 takes place two years before the start of GRAVEL
, when Decora first joined the gang (after the others realized she was actually a girl and not a boy). Timur is showing Decora around the city with Graffiti tagging along. Soon, Adrik and Mazaev (members of Charlotta; their rival gang) appear and begin to mess with the trio. Well, you can read the rest
Since I finished this, I'll be taking a short break from drawing so I can finish finding a job. I already sent in an application to one place and they haven't gotten back to me so I'll be looking around for other job opportunities. And when I'm not looking, I'll be working on GRAVEL
. I just need to get my notes together (so many jotted down ideas and character concepts). It'll be difficult but at least I'll be doing something productive with this comic book project.
I'm still debating whether to publish it or not once completed. This comic means a lot to me, more than I can explain, and I don't want some snooty publisher exploiting it or taking away my rights to it. But I do have my eyes set on Image (the same company who publishes The Walking Dead). But, for whatever reason, they decline, I'll try out Dark Horse. Again, I'm still debating so I guess I'll know what I want to do once I reach that bridge.
Welp, I think that's all for now. Hope everyone is doing great! Drop by and say hi to me
