Week 20 by MicahJGunnell Week 20 by MicahJGunnell
Wow, number 20!! Almost halfway through a year doing these weekly sketches. I have to say, there have been a few weeks here and there when I really didn't feel like my art was improving much, but this week I feel like I'm finally starting to break through some creative blocks and also becoming more comfortable with certain digital techniques. Speaking of which, this is the first week where all my sketches are in color(I think...). I really want to focus on improving and developing my ability with color, and coming up with a technique that I feel fits the style I want to use in my creator-owned book...Haven't forgotten about that have you guys?? I haven't! In fact, in the next week or two I should have the script for the first volume in my hands and will begin laying out the entire first book. Can't tell you how excited I am!

As always, good to see these face and character studies. The color on these dev/splash pages really brings them alive. Have they got you on character design yet.

Thanks man! Really appreciate that...No character designs yet for me, but I'm really hoping for that opportunity in the future. Storyboards are fun but really require a lot of time and I feel like I would actually be better at characters given the chance.

This is such a nice and colorful dump!  I really like the slightly stylized femal headshot on the left.

That building on the right is amazing - I'm always delighted to see your architectural and structural stylings alongside the varied body and character designs.

Can't wait to hear more about the original book, and thanks again for keeping on posting these sheets! :)

Thanks! It was kind of an afterthought...Just added it to give a little more variety to the page. I'm glad you like how it turned out! I'll keep posting for sure...Might need to cut down a little on the sketches once I start on the comic pages though.

Thanks man! I am too! Obviously it's still going to be a while before you guys will see any of the pages, but it IS happening. I'm planning to finish at least 52 pages before posting anything, so it'll probably be at least a year from now. I'll post some teasers and stuff along the way though :)
