minicomics live 5– post 38 (page 10 inks)

garagesale-page10-inksA mime page that is full of details and way more then the one panel of backgrounds that C.C. Beck tells us are strictly necessary.  The major problem, and it isn’t a big one, is the relationship between the top of the Greekish column and the view into the courtyard through the Egyptian-y columns.  A little whiteout and some brush marker will continue the effect on the right, which is working quite well, around the top onto the the left, and the page will look much better.  The pattern on Gideon’s dressing gown will have to wait until I make the decisions I need to make on page 11– then I’ll go back and finish the panel here.

It’s times like this that I wonder if anyone out there actually makes comics the “right” way– penciling and inking one page at a time until the story is finished.  My guess is no.  (And yes, I did go back and black in the roof of the car on page 8 to match the crinkle top I added to the design here.  It’s a distinct improvement.)

    What kind of pants is Iowa wearing? I assumed they were jeans or casual pants, from the seam down the side. But on this page there’s no butt seam and so they end up looking like… I don’t even know. Even sweat pants have a seam on the butt, or pockets… it just looks wrong, somehow. I don’t think Iowa would wear pajamas or something to the garage sale, and they do look like jeans everywhere else.

    You are of course 100% right. In Indiana, we call this a screwup.. It’s been fixed.
