Risks and challenges
This was a GIANT-SIZE challenge! I always liked the oversized comic books I used to read as a kid, and wanted to attempt one myself. Even though this is only the third comic book I've created, I accepted the personal goal and locked myself into my swamp studio. Two and a half months later, I emerged from the swamp with a finished book.
This time I also decided to draw the original comic pages with Prismacolor Col-Erase pencil instead of regular graphite. I had been using them for about a year for my sketches, after being introduced to them by my friend and fellow artist Victoria Gedvillas. These pencils don't smear as much as regular graphite, and also add a pop of color to the lines. Since the pencil linework looked so good, I also decided not to digitally ink this issue, but instead digitally color over the pencils. The resulting look is a little rougher but fits in well with the retro Grindhouse vibe of the book.
Another big challenge for this project was the fact that during the months I spent creating this I basically had no income. It was incredibly stressful to say the least, gambling on this comic book the entire time. I had originally planned to just order the books on credit and not do a Kickstarter this time around, but the costs of the extra pages (48 pages is almost like two books in one) and the variant covers were just too much this time.
I'm happy I took the challenge, the end result is the biggest, bloodiest, action-packed issue yet. This project has taught me so much, and it should make the issue to follow easier and quicker to produce. Thank you so much for all my backers, I could not be on this artistic journey without your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
