I know that last month I shared a couple preview shots of this particular double page spread from "I Thought It Would Be Zombies..." #1. But now it's moments away from the pencils and inks being completed, I just shared a quick look at it on Instagram and I figured I'd dredge it up over here on Steem again too!
I tried working on this while rewatching the first couple seasons of Stranger Things but that plan failed miserably. Even having seen the episodes before, I simply couldn't have Stranger Things on in the background. I found myself paying way too much attention to it! So I've been rewarding myself with Netflix breaks between stints of working, as I also need to momentarily escape the heat of my poorly cooled studio room...
So, with much crappier TV shows on in the background, I set to work on this in earnest. Mind you, I haven't been working on it for a month straight, I do skip around a lot! But now I'm anxious to wrap this image up. I'm also very excited, but also apprehensive to slap some color on it. The setting sun, emanating magic, brilliantly backlighting Julie as she wails on a horde of goblins... can you picture it? I sure can! However, I'm not entirely sure I can translate that effect to the page well... but I'll give it a shot!
No matter what, this page has come a long way from the first preview I saved.
Other pages are following suit, and it's gradually starting to look like I might actually get a comic finished... Man, that'll be something...
