Another page of digital pencils. This one was done in July. I’m currently working on page 159 but my productivity slowed to a crawl when I started my current storyboarding gig. I went from a page a day to a panel or two a week. But - unlike other ‘breaks’ I’m still plugging away. And my current schedule has a week off after every two boards, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to play catch up during the weeks off. I’m still hoping to have the pencils complete early in the new year and inks done by mid-summer.
I’ve hit the part of the story where I really can’t show full pages without spoilers, so from now on it’ll be a panel here and there for show and tell.
I posted a walk through of my process of drawing a page over at my blog. Check it out if you are interested in seeing a step by step of how I draw a page.
The penciling continues apace. Here’s page 144, penciled in Manga studio:

I’m slowly working my way through the final 70 pages of Wahoo Morris. I roughed them out in a space of a few weeks, and I’m now in the process of cleaning them up. My original plan was just to get the basic construction done digitally, then print them out, slap them on the light table, and do the clean drawing on the final strathmore before lettering and inking.
My ‘roughs’ are turning out pretty close to finished pencils, so I’m thinking instead of wasting time tracing them on the the light table I might buy myself a large format printer and just print them out in blue line and ink directly over that.
Anyhoo, that’s still a decision for a few weeks at least into the future. In the mean time, here’s a random page of digital pencils.
It’s been awhile since the last page was posted. I actually do have new pages finished, but they are out of order, with a total of ten pages in various stages of being finished.
I’m currently doing storyboards for a show on Teletoon (The all-cartoon network up here in Canada), and until I’m a bit more comfortable with the schedule (i.e. I can judge how long it will take me to finish one) I will be working exclusively on that. The first one is due in under three weeks, and once it’s done, I will start to spend early mornings and evenings finishing off the loose ends of those 10 pages, then start working on newer pages.
If you are still with me, the wait shouldn’t be too much longer for finished pages to start showing up again!
