Work on GC#4, issue 3 has begun!

I usually leave the "new issue" announcement up for at least a week, to make sure everyone knows it has been made available. A lot of times during that week, work doesn't start on the following issue as I focus on fulfilling orders, answering email concerns and kudos, posting and responding to forum posts on the newest issue, and the like. However, this week, while doing all of that, I was busy at work on the next issue. So far, I have made some text rewrites, added 2 more pages (bringing issue 3 up to the 18 pages that have made up the first 2 issues, which is 2 more than usual), and I have spent hours pencil drawing the first 11 of 18 pages, 6 of which I did today alone! I've made great progress in this first week, post issue 2. Some things are brewing down the line that may slow this speed, but I hope it won't be too much. I will keep you informed. For now, enjoy the rough preview of the first pencil sketch of issue 3.

gC#4, issue 2 completed. To be released soon!

I finished the cover of issue 3 which will appear at the end of the soon-to-be-released issue 2. My wife, Juliekat, has completed the proofreading, and I have made the needed corrections. The PDF is nearly done, and I will be taking a last minute read through.

However, today turned into an unexpected crazy "real life" work day, and seriously delayed what I had hoped to be the release day (today)! I still have to set-up the store and finalize the PDF. I doubt that will happen tonight, as I have other responsibilities I have to attend to. I hope to have a release by Wednesday! It's too bad, though, as today would have been a great day for a release, as it was my birthday! :)

[Edit: You can get some sleep. Don't look for a release tonight. I have more to do on the issue than I have energy right now. And thanks for all the birthday wishes!]

GC#4, page 36 completed!

Yes, the final page of issue 2 has been completed — page 36! All that is left now is to draw and color the cover for issue 3, which will appear at the end of issue 2 as a sneak preview of the upcoming chapter. After that, I just have to have a final proofreading of issue 2, creation of the PDF, and uploading to the store! I will post when the cover for issue 3 is complete (but I will not be showing a preview, or it will give away too much too soon). Then, the next update will be announcing the release! Thanks for all the comments and close following of this issue. I am glad everyone is so excited for this newest installment.

On a side, personal note: I went and saw "Inception" this weekend. Wow! What a trip! Loved it. I mention this as grOw/cOmic#4 too, in some ways, will mimic the movie in how the explanation of the plot will not always be in a linear fashion as you normally expect. That, and it was just a cool movie! ;D

GC#4, page 35 complete! One more to go!

Another late night to finish the latest page — page 35. It was a busy day today, and I wasn't able to finish this one earlier as I had hoped. Tomorrow may be more of the same, so I figured I would do it now. We are just one page (and a cover for the next issue) away from completion! Then, it will be on to the final review and proofreading (which my wife, Juliekat, will be helping me with this weekend), and then, the final PDF production, and setting up the store. All. Most. There! Enjoy the preview!

GC#4, page 34 complete!

I made such good progress on page 34 today, that I had to continue to work later than usual to get it done — and I did! Yet another page with details, angles, scale, and lighting, it was very difficult to choose an area of the page to crop for a preview. Sorry for the super vagueness, but you know the drill. ;D Only 2 more pages and the cover to issue 3 to go!!! Enjoy the preview!

GC#4, page 33 completed!

Page 33 was yet another detailed page in terms of composition, lighting, effects, and scale. It took extra concentration to pull it off, thus, the later update. However, I think it really paid off well. This page, along with page 32, are definitely going to be a few of the "biggest" pages of the issue. Enjoy the (vague) preview! (And, you know if it's vague, we're coming to the climax where little should be revealed.)

GC#4, page 32 completed!

As I write this, I am listening to the soundtrack for The Bourne Supremacy — namely, the track called "Bim Bam Smash." It is a high-energy piece of music that played during the climactic chase scene in the movie — a chase scene that, I believe, is one of the best car chase scenes ever. The first time I saw it, I let out a huge exhale at the end, having forgotten to breathe.

I mention this, because while finishing page 32, this song came on, and I truly felt it was a good parallel to the brimming climax that is now happening in the issue. While there is no "chase" (though there sort of is a "pursuit", in a sense), the energy is ramping up as we approach the end of the issue. I knew this was going to be a great page, and wanted to make sure the lighting and effects reflected this. There are lots of shadows and blurring for depth of field. This is one of the reasons this one took longer (in addition to the July 4th holiday). Enjoy the preview (and the progress "map")! I'm off to page 33!

GC#4, page 31 completed!

I made better progress than expected, and was able to complete page 31 today. It definitely took some work to coordinate the effects, blurs, and background angles on this page. It's hard to say if I will get another page done before the holiday weekend. It all depends on the workload tomorrow. If not, then have a happy 4th!
