Developing Seaweed

Here's a collection of development for the main and title character; "Seaweed." The image of him and Poisson in the upper left corner of page one, (with the cigar) was the first image drawn back in 1998 I think. The basic elements remained the same but getting his proportions to work took some work. It always takes me a lot of drawings and struggle to get anything to work right, and it always pisses me off when I see great artists who magically make beautiful drawings just flow out of their pencils. I included a page of some stills from the comic so you can see where he ended up finally.

inking continues

After a long period of working on too many freelance jobs I finally returned to inking my fully drawn, 64 page comic, "Seaweed." Here's half of page 13 along with the final blue pencil I inked on. I'll publish all the blue lines and thumbnails/studies in a book after I put out the full color version. Most of my friends who have seen the work would rather see the rough blue version, but I've always deamed of putting out a more professional full color comic, so I want to accomplish that first.
