Workaholic even on a Holiday

New Cover for Issue 6, New Year!

Drawing Page 2 of Issue 6, Part 2

Adding more details to Page 2 of Issue 6. My art instructor and artist Andrew Huerta assists me by sketching out the initial line art, and I fill in the details with what I learn in drawing lessons with him, and he corrects any proportions and shades the panel. Blood color and text will be added by my colorist Chad Hammontree.

My characters Jeromos and Gabriel are coming along nicely. The progression of the lower panel is seen below. I love drawing!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Fröhliche Weihnachten!

Drawing Page 2 of Issue 6, Part 1

I've recently taken over artist duties for my comic book series beginning with Issue 6. It's a challenge but I have plenty of help and guidance from my art instructor and new member of my creative team, artist Andrew Huerta.

Our process is this, and we have a system going: I have regular drawing lessons every Sunday in Costa Mesa CA. (I drive every Sunday from Torrance to Costa Mesa to meet with Andrew.) We have two hour drawing lessons. One hour is dedicated to lessons, and the next hour is spent planning and sketching the line art for a panel/page. Andrew sketches out the initial line art, and during the week, I apply what I learned from my lessons to fill in and complete the details, character faces, poses, etc. It is challenging since I'm only 3-4 months in to drawing and am new to this, but I practice every day. And Andrew corrects my work through text and when we meet. But it is looking great so far!

My ultimate goal is to become a comic book artist as well, since I'm already a comic book writer and a publisher. That way, I can keep the series going by drawing it myself eventually.

That said, here is the initial drawing in progress of page 2 of Issue 6. I'm working on the page, and Andrew will do the inking.
