Yesterday I took leave of my senses and tried to do 24 pages worth of thumbnail sketches for a 24-hour comic challenge issued by my cousin and some nice people over at Doomkopf.com . Now, I do not read many comics. I do not fancy myself a comic-maker at all. Heck, I can’t even finish one picture right now. Still, it was too interesting not to try. My boyfriend produced a finished pencil comic as well but hasn’t inked all of it. I meant to scan my pencil images; if one thinks of those as finished* thumbnails, then I got in under the wire. However! My scanner will NOT read pencil. I kind of forgot that. So I had to use some Micron pens, resulting in hours of extra work, which is fine because all practice is good, right? In the process, I made the thing more readable, but also started erasing some things and re-drawing them. Hmm. And I’m not done, but I want to post what I have for posterity. I slept 5 hours, but I know some intrepid comickers went with no actual sleep last night. I look forward to seeing their work.
Because the lettering is so tiny, with the “pages” being thumbnails of about 2.5” square, a lot of the dialogue will be illegible. I will try to go type it in if anybody actually sees the comic. It’s called ADMIT ONE right now.
