FIRST BIG UPDATE
Hi all! welcome to the first BIG update for ROUNDEYE: For Love!
And as I have said before we are here because of you folk. So the reason It has been a bit since the last update is because I have been hard at work producing the lineart for the first chapter of ROUNDEYE: for Love! It's 8 pages, some of which you have seen, but these are the final black and whites. I will put these into Photoshop, and add some secondary tonal gray's to set up lightsources, and value ( like you see on a few here.) Then onto the color! Which i will be doing as well. If you wanna see an Idea of what the color will look like as far as a style, or appraoch, go take another look at the Original 8 pager that is posted here in the updates, which I also colored. I also plan on posting another update soon with all the Marker roughs for these pages, and the pencils!
I will not ultimately post the whole thing here, because then the story would be spoiled for you. But I will be posting sneak peaks, Paintings, etc, as I move forward with the story and these updates will continue until it's completion, right up into the actual pulishing, Book Release party, any reviews, possible awards, and public appearnces to sign, and promote the book. So enjoy! I will see you soon.

PLEDGE $3,000 OR MORE PLEDGE $3,000 OR MORE Okay!! 2 MAJOR rewards gone super-quick! Looks like I might be doing a tour, if i don't watch it! So, I am gonna ad 2 MORE!!!!! 2 more stops onthe ROUNDEYE: For Love Tour. BUT!! These are limeted to the SOUTHEAST/WESTCOAST. i am located in GA, so One of the stops is already in the southeast, so these 2, will have to be there as well. At the most anywhere between Georgia, and New York. Bring me to your Shop!! will be at your disposal, for a store signing, free sketches, and general chatter, and hangingoutitude! Thats 4 stops. So I MIGHT consider ONE LAST, and 5th stop after this, but it will have to be worth it. Being a family man, and prolific illustrator, travelling is a hinderance to creating. you get it, right? good luck!!
