March entry: Fire Breed

Postby Noblewreck » Fri Mar 28, 2008 8:53 pm

This is my entry for March called Fire Breed. Hope you like.

Meet the O'Tearney's;
They're monster detectives in search of creatures like Big Foot and Lock Nessie. Creatures known as Cryptids. And their a family too.
YBIC,
Noblewreck

Oh, P.S. my suggested theme is "box / treasure chest" or the like. The song "black box" by Beautiful Republic inspired that theme.

page three

page three.
I do have more to the story but technical difficulties slowed me down.
Plus my waiting till the last minute doesn't help. Hope to have pages four and five done. Hope these three pages count. If not, enjoy anyway.

Also I hope to correct typos and image quality as I fine tune the pages.

You finished in time! I'm very impressed by the art and wonderful clean line work. It was a little hard to read some of the text at that page size, but I think I followed the story okay. A little quirky, but cool. Great entry!
(and a great suggested theme for next month, I like it!)

Thanks. Sorry about the resolution/size. Think I'm getting the hang of how my version of CorelDraw program indicates the size of an export. I hope to revise and add pages.

Cool entry! I second what CK said about your inking. Very pretty.

technique

Postby Noblewreck » Tue Apr 01, 2008 5:24 pm

Thanks,
I use a number 2 brush and black acrylic paint to ink. A brush makes a pleaseing organic line. Gloss paint is darker I think. Panels and balloon lines were made in CorelDraw.

Yeay. Here is the last couple of pages. As you can see I'm getting better at the resolution and stay within the memory requirements. Thanks. Here is page 4.
