Added 1 new A* page:Boy, I was in a fighting mood with this page. Phew! I did kind of like what happened with the background, though, which was that I slapped on some ink wash that was way too dark, and wiped it off with a paper towel, which then left a sort of texture across it. It's also nice to have some really big black areas once in a while (although I was pretty happy with the more sketchy scrawly pages from yesterday, which I think must have been inspired by the work of this great old British comic artist I was looking at...I'll have to write up something about him when I actually get around to doing a halfway decent blog post instead of just mashing a bunch of keys before throwing myself into bed :P).|
Getting close to done with the subscription mode thing, which I'm going to work on over the weekend here, although first I think I'll be PDF-ing up all the comics and putting them into a little store page for digital downloads--which then I'll launch simultaneously with subscription mode (in a week or two? maybe?) since part of subscription mode will be always having a free download link to the latest PDF collection of A* pages. Hm...gotta figure out if the downloads should be straight PDF files, or .zipped up--guess I'll just buy some from some other webcomic sites and see how they do 'em.
Oh yeah Monday I'll probably just have a single new page (and a late actually wee hours Tuesday morning type of thing...not that that's abnormal for my publishing schedule :P), since some friends of mine for some reason decided to put the sun-fearing webcomic artist in charge of a beach party. 8|
