Greetings True Believers!
When last we met, I was about to attempt to complete a comic in 30 days: write, pencil and ink…
well it was too much for me.
I just wasn’t able to ink fast enough to make the bootcamp deadline. That being said, while pushing through my first Pulp-themed comic, me and my co-plotter Donovan LeClair, conceived of another story plot, in the same universe as Ingretta.
The idea we developed was so interesting, that I decided (in true Pulp fashion) that this first issue should be a double sized release, featuring 2 stories written back to back. As the idea unfolded, my Bootcamp idea became more elaborate, and I essentially doubled the scope of my work. This was FAR more than I could complete in 30 days.
Although I have produced full comics before this 30 day attempt, I have never produced an inked comic. Frankly, I underestimated how long the inking would take me, and I am wiser now.
I am unpleased that I couldn’t meet my own deadline, but I am also glad that the I.P. which I am developing now has expanded, and the new material is sure to please my Pulp readers! For this update blog, I am going to show you some more Work In Progress pages from Trial of Ingretta, and reveal the title for the new back-up story : “Cull of the Dead Gods!” featuring the supernatural detective Kip Stirling. The script is being written concurrent to the writing of this blog, and I’ll likely start the artwork by mid June.
Enjoy these pages of ‘Trial of Ingretta’, and overlook the parts where bits of my drawings are missing… it is work in progress…
