Page 37 complete.

The slow progress continues — good for the "progress", bad for the "slow". Things are slowing down in my "real life" work, now that the Thanksgiving holiday is approaching. Hopefully, I will be able to get another page done tomorrow, and maybe one by Friday. Issue 3 won't be released within 1 month, like issue 2. However, I am shooting for sometime before Christmas. Like last time, I could have a sudden burst of page production, which will allow me to release it earlier than that. We will have to wait and see. In the meantime, enjoy the preview for page 37!

Slowly but surely — page 36 is done.

As you may have guessed from the slow updates, I am back in a heavy round of "real life" work that is slowing down progress on issue 3. It is NOT as bad as the slowdown that happened during issue 2, which is a good thing. The other good thing is that issue 2 still came out 34 days after issue 1, a new record. I am hoping for a similar release with issue 3. (Keeping fingers crossed.) Enjoy the preview!

Page 35 complete!

Just finished page 35, which took a little extra work — this page had a number of different panels with our main characters in them, and included much detail. I have to say that Photoshop CS4's new rotate canvas feature has come in handy here, allowing me to rotate the entire image on screen so that it was easier for me to do certain curved brush strokes in a more natural way for my hand on my Wacom tablet.

I was asked to show a "map" of the current progress of this series, as I did before with the end of grOw/cOmic #2. Here it is! As you can see, there are still 32 pages to be released in this series! Now, I won't update this all the time, but on occasion, I will update it to show you where we are. You can always check back to this entry when I mention a certain page number, too.

Enjoy the preview!

Back to the updates! Pages 33, 34 complete!

I've left the announcement for the release of issue 2 up at the top of the page long enough. It is now time to continue on with the updates for issue 3 ! I just completed pages 33 and 34, the first two pages of issue 3. Things are going to get really heated in issue 3, as those who saw the button-popping, bra-ripping sneak preview of the 3rd chapter cover can see. This sneak preview appeared at the end of issue 2, and in the newest BA Studios' Catalogue. And remember, we still have issue 4 after that. In the meantime, enjoy the two previews!

Issue 2 of grOw/cOmic#3 RELEASED!

Well, I was able to keep my aggressive schedule to get issue #2 out. I didn't think I'd make it with the 2-week "real life" work workload that crashed down on me during this past month.

aninconvenientgrowth Issue 2: "We apologize for the delay..." 16 color pages, plus 2 covers, and 1 page of preview sketches of next issue.

Julie found herself stuck in the elevator of her apartment building. With her in the tiny, creaky lift was Tyler, "the guy-from-the-ninth-floor" who she had a crush on. Unfortunately, while things may seem like they were going her way, something always came up to ruin it all. He already had a girlfriend - the redhead Missy. And her breasts were growing - growing far bigger than she planned when she drank the Chinese formula she purchased downtown. They had just ripped her shirt to the point of uselessness, and were continuing to grow! With all the inconveniences crashing down around her all at once, the small elevator seemed to be getting smaller by the minute.

Last page of issue#2 completed!

Page 32 has been completed! Issue#2 is done. I still have to finish the cover to issue 3, so that you will have the traditional sneak peak at the end of the chapter. I am starting on that now. After that, it is just a matter of proofreading, creating the final PDF, and setting up the store — then, it will be released. If all works out well, that should be between Friday early evening to Monday evening. Enjoy the last preview for issue#2!

Page 31 complete! 2 in one day!

Wow. I finished a second page today -- a first! Well, I did complete the 1st of the 2 pages early this morning, so its not like I was able to actually color 2 pages in a day. But the results are similar. Only ONE page to go, plus the cover to issue 3! Almost there!

Page 30 complete, only 2 more to go!

Just completed page 30 this morning. I thought I would get it done last night, which would have been 2 pages in one day, but it was a little too much -- I was tired. After my 2 week major slow-down due to work commitments, I am making good progress. Page 30 was a fun page to do, with the story pacing hitting a peak -- a nice "BE-centric" scene.

Page 29 completed! 3 more to go!

We coming into the home stretch for issue 2, with today's completion of page 29. This issue goes from pages 17-32, so there are only 3 more pages to go in the issue. I will also be doing the cover for the next issue, so there will be that sneak preview at the end. Hang in there!
