NYC has gotten hit with a couple bad winter storms lately. One day, the heat in my apartment decided to take a vacation and left my roomies and I in the cold! Hence the gloves (I love the finger/mitten ones! You can actually grab things with them!) I wished the sunny beach scene I was coloring could radiate heat. I usually sketch in pencil but if there's a particular scene I need to test out I'll use color.
I've been storyboarding the rest of what will happen in the first episode of AER HEAD. I took all the pages off the wall that would be in the first segment and spread them on my table so I could better see what I needed in between. I counted 30 pages on the table, and I'm not even done with the whole thing, so it may be 2 comics instead of one, but I'll worry about that later. The important thing is that I get all the important elements down and edit out over-explanatory details.
Oh and the heat was fixed by this picture. I was just wearing the hat due to a bad hair day. People suggest putting photos and videos of themselves on their blogs, but for me that requires looking presentable, which isn't how I usually look when I'm just in my apartment drawing. Who really gets all dolled up just to sit at their desk and do artwork? You're getting the real story here, people ;)
I've also made a tentative time line of when to finish storyboarding this segment and move on to comic page layouts.
Until next week!
