FutureSaurus Page 10- Splash

So, I've been busy plugging away at inks for this first issue of FutureSaurus and that's why I've had little time to post lately...  So here's a little treat, page 10, in which we are introduced to that most radical of reptiles...  Rex Raditude!  Of course, this is for color, so I'll get there eventually.  I've got close to half of the pages inked, so wish me luck as I lock myself away and get 'em done.  Meh, I won't be completely locked away...  If you wanna grab a beer, you know where to find me.

More FutureSaurus Panels, YAY!

Here are two panels from page 19 of FutureSaurus Issue/Chapter 1.  I wanted to play with some color today before I go back to inking.  Sometimes seeing just some finished panels gets me on my way to finishing the whole deal.  Enjoy!

8-Bit Portrait

More 8bit stuff...  I'm still trying to get a method down for these pixel thingies.  It's still a little off, but I'm getting it down, slowly yet surely...  and don't call me shirley.

FutureSaurus- Page 18

I've got 23 pages more to go, but thought I'd throw up one of the more exciting moments from the first issue on the blog.  I'm writing, thumbnailing, penciling, inking, lettering, and coloring this all myself, so bear with your lil buddy over here.  It's deliberately inked for color, so that's why there's no solid blacks.  I'll put up the colors as I go along, but just wanted to do a little teaser dealie today.  The official short synopsis of FutureSaurus is:  "Dr. Jeremy Duderman, the world's most wickedly awesome scientist, has just created his greatest invention, the Reality Alternative Dimensionator (or R.A.D. for short).  Instead of allowing Jeremy the power to go back and erase his painful childhood memories of being a nerd, he unintentionally releases the most extreme force in the alternative universe...  Rex Raditude aka The FutureSaurus!  But it isn't all pizza parties and video games as the evil Emperor Buzzkill and his cronies are constantly cramping Rex's style.  The world's fate now lies with the dinosaur who has prehistoric strength, a futuristic arsenal, and a 90's attitude!"

8-Bit FutureSaurus

Just started teaching myself how to do some pixel art in photoshop.  Dude, it's harder than it seems.  There's a lot of planning and screen shotting and wanting to kill myself over stupid mistakes.  Bear with me, I'll get the hang of it.

Turtle Sketches!

So, I do a little sketching before I hop into doing finished page illustration and today I decided it was a TMNT kinda day.  I wanna do a lot more, but I'm still figuring out a good mix of detail and just straight up clean, shape design.  The full figure Raph was my attempt to mix the comics version with the cartoon version.  Ultimately, I think it's a little too goofy...

FutureSaurus Panel- Issue 1, Page 16, Panel 4 (in case you cared)

Here's a panel from my upcoming comic...  I'll try to share as much of the process as I can without totally spoiling the book.
