Gad, this thing is taking me FOREVER to ink, and there’s still a big stand-alone illustration that goes with it, and I still have to COLOR everything. This is why I am awful in contests, man, I try to do too much and I don’t go FAST ENOUGH with it.
But yes, here have… this super unfinished thing. When is the deadline, again?
May as well drop this, over here! You may have already seen the inked version, but I went in and added enough pink-purple to last you a few years - you’re welcome. I have Harlowe entered in an OC pageant competition on deviantArt and wanted to introduce her enormous crew of supporters, haha. Thank God for spectator entries.
(As always, Logan and Eleanor are Sam’s, and Campbell is Kayzig’s! I’m just borrowing characters left and right.)
Nancy and I decided a while back that Esteban’s superhero name would be “The Bummer”. Striking somber disappointment into the heart of evil, and everything else in his general vicinity. BUT HEY! Inks! (I warned you all about the WIPs.) I promise the next thing I post in a while later today won’t be as glum! :D
Today will be the day of WIPs. (Seriously, I have two others I’ll be posting later on.) This is just the inks for one of the sample comic pages I want to stick in my portfolio, along with other prior work I have. Never hurts to bring along something new!
The narration is provided by Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s in the Cradle”, by the way… if you’ve never heard the song, you should go give it a listen.
It’s pretty crazy to look back over my two previous attempts plus this newest one. The first draft was done in late 2010! I’m overall happy with my progress and looking forward to actually posting these, this go around.
