First Responder's Supply

I was blessed by this company and they trusted me to create a logo for them. I like the way it came out. For those out there, a new police / fire / emt supply store is opening in the Lawerenceville, ga area. Check them out! First Responder's Uniform and Supply!

working spread eagle in the dark...

shewwww.... 3/4 of the way finished with SOAH issue #2 pencils and inks. Here is a snippit of the Luck Lady Bath House scene. This is a 2 page spread where things are getting a little steamy between our main bad guy and his one of his hench-women (Koi Dragon) . I am trying to get a feel of creating environments more than backgrounds. (a term and trick I coined from Jason Cheeseman-Meyer in his Book Vanishing Point: Perspective for Comics from the Ground Up. )

I want a feeling of steam and darkness for this room. I am relying on the colorist (Dony Armstrong) to help bring this out by adding some sweat beads on the characters, with some steam haze and shadows as well as moister beads on the frames for the final render.

It is taking WAY longer than projected to get this issue up and out. The reasons are good, bad and indifferent. The Good - I have been SWAMPED with other projects. The Bad - There is only 24 hours in a day and this thing takes ALOT of time. The indifferent - all kinds of personal issues around the job and home.

Stay Strong, SOAH fans!
