Update #3

A week into funding

Comment

A week later and I couldn't be more ecstatic. I wasn't positive that we would make it quite this far by this point, but thanks to all those who have funded so far, we have gone past the initial 25% mark and are well on our way to complete funding!

With many thanks to BleedingCool.com for providing me with coverage and posting an article written by me, here.

Also, my good friends Tony and Will from Comicbooked.com have been super helpful with coverage and support within every spectrum. Considering they are my go-to for comic/movie news, I couldn't be happier. 

Let's keep the momentum high into the new week and keep these percentages steady; thanks to everyone again and make sure to spread the word to whomever you know!


Update #2

My Page Process

Comment

So for my second update, I thought I'd share a little bit of process with you all. This is the step by step that I take to create the images that you end up seeing, starting with a single sheet of white bristol... And ending with a lot of digital stuff going on.

Step 1) Line art. This is me penciling onto the page, typically (but not always) from a thumbnail sketch, and then going over those same lines with micron pens. I use a lot of Copic's for this step.

Step 2) Digital coloring (or shading). I then go over my scanned line art, throw it into photoshop, and work my stylus until my hands are about to break. This is, in all honesty, my favorite step... Because you can really see the effect that color (or shades) can have within an overall page. It allows you to really guide the eye towards where you'd like as well.

Step 3) Digital Lettering. I then send my finished pages to my letterer, YdAo, who proceeds to work his own magic using a lot of fonts. This step is also helpful with guiding the readers' eye towards where you'd like. YdAo is very, very,very good at this... Which makes my job that much simpler.

Great First Day!

So with the first day coming to a close, I would like to thank the following two news sources for their coverage of this Kickstarter, Broken Frontier and Watchchareading.com

Word of mouth is amazing for indie comics in general, so keep talking me and "With The Earth Above Us" up to all your friends!

Also, thanks to everyone who has pledged so far, making this little project of mine 4% closer to it's goal. Let's keep the momentum going into the first week (and beyond).

In commemoration, here is a mini-print that I'll be giving to the FIRST 50 PLEDGES for the campaign, what do you think?
