GC#4, page 69 complete!

I knew I could get at least 1 more page done before the holiday week, and with the completion of page 69, I was right. This page was fairly detailed, which took some time. "Real life" work took a break as clients must be getting to take off for their holidays, and didn't bug me. :) This gave me more time to work on grOw. I will probably get a head start on page 70 this week, before I take a break, but it is detailed enough that I will not be able to finish it until after the new year.

I will be away from Dec 24 to Jan 2, and no new updates will be made during this time. I will actually be out of state, visiting family. Happy Holidays to all!
Enjoy the last preview of 2010!

GC#4, page 68 complete!

With just minutes to spare before the weekend, page 68 has been completed! "Real life" work has taken a quick pause, as clients haven't gotten back to me on certain projects (that are still in the works), so I had more time to get another page out the door. It helped that this page was a little easier on the amount of panels, faces, and details — a sum of which can really slow things down. However, the next 3 pages are all quite detailed and have multiple panels, so they will take more time. Only 4 pages to go!

GC#4, page 67 complete!

We are another page closer with the completion of page 67. Only 5 more pages to go (plus the cover to issue 5)! A small lull in between "real life work" projects has given me time to work on this page. I am not sure how long it will last, as new projects are waiting in the wings for approval to begin. In the meantime, I will continue with working on grOw as much as can. Enjoy the preivew!

GC#4, page 66 complete!

Ah, we come to the two-thirds mark with page 66. It's been another busy week with the end of the year looming, but I am glad I was able to at least get 1 more page done before week's end. Well, only a week and a half left in this year for updates. In the meantime, enjoy the preview of a character I haven't shown in a few pages.

Whew! Page 65 of GC#4 finally complete!

It's been a grueling week, but I was finally able to put the finishing touches on page 65. This page is another heavily detailed page. However, it's been delayed more due to "RL" work messing up my grOw work schedule. The end of the year is traditionally a busy time for me in this respect — some clients want things wrapped up and completed by the end of the year, and others the "new project" to start at the beginning of the upcoming new year.

Enough of that, though. As you can see by the preview, this page was chock full of effects and details. A lot of layers, layer effects, and smart objects were used on this page (for those of you familiar with Photoshop). So out of the 1,417,500 pixels that make up this page, here is a sneak preview of 90,000 of them. Enjoy!
