GC#4, page 103 completed!

Page 103 took a little longer than the other pages so far in this issue, but that was because it was quite the detailed page, with a decent number of the 4 "F's" — frames, faces, figures and "fx" (special effects). The more of each these items there are, the more time it takes to complete a page, as they can be labor intensive. In addition, the backgrounds took some time to marry up to the figures properly; some being very detailed, themselves. The previews may be becoming more and more vague as we start the countdown to the last 9 pages of the entire 112-page series. I wouldn't want to give anything away. Enjoy the preview!

GC#4, page 102 completed! 50% Mark!

With the completion of page 102, we are now at the 50% mark in issue 6 — 10 pages down, 10 pages to go!  I am still making good progress, especially considering the effects involved over the last few pages. I may have a little slow down next week, as more "RL" work is hinting at popping up, but I think I will stillcontinue to make good headway over all in completing this issue. Enjoy the preview!

GC#4, page 101 completed!

I had to work extra late today to get this page finished before the weekend. Filled with a lot of detail and special effects (blurs, motion, depth of field, liquids, etc.), page 101 proved to be a heavy work load!

I was also delayed a little as I have been trying to do research on a new Host/eCommerce solution. If anyone has a possible suggestion (one that they kind of know, and not just Googling a random place), drop me an email at

GC#4, page 100 completed!

We've reached the triple digits in pages, with the completion of page 100. Still plenty of detail to work on, but I am continuing to hold a good pace!

Now, if only my Host can get it's act together and fix my store, especially before this issue comes to release time, we'll be in good shape. (Credit cards are not yet going through; however, PayPal is most of time [try again in a few minutes, if you get an error].) Over 3 weeks now with this issue — I'm ready to start looking into a new site. :P

GC#4, page 99 completed!

Still chugging along, I just finished page 99 in the latest issue. This was another detail-laden page, which took extra time, but I was still able to hold to my current 2-days per page standard pace. Now, it's on to page 100 — which, interestingly, was the original last page of the series, until I extended the story/issues here and there. The series is now set to end on page 112! Enjoy the preview.

GC#4, page 98 completed!

Cruising right along, I was just able to finish page 98 today. I wasn't sure if I would, as it is a detailed page, to say the least, with multiple panels, numerous faces (which take more time), overlapping figures and plenty of post-production effects. No time to loose! It's on to page 99 !

GC#4, page 97 completed!

Working is progressing fairly well, and with another 2 weekdays passed since the last update, I have completed page 97 of grOw/cOmic#4. This page took a little extra work, mainly due to the layering of, and interaction of, certain body parts. ;) It takes a little extra "sculpting" when this happens, as well as extra time to select each overlapping area before applying the shading and lighting. And, with this page completed, we've hit the 25% mark in the new issue!

GC#4, page 96 completed!

My return to work on issue 6 has, so far, had good, quick results. Page 96 has just been completed, and I am already starting on the next page. Hopefully, I will make good progress in the next week or two to make up for the temporary halt in production of the newest installment. Enjoy the preview!

GC#4: production revving up again.

I am back, and having taken a day and a half to catch-up on things put on hold, I have begun working on grOw/cOmic#4, issue 6 once again. I will post of the next page preview once completed, which is now about 1/3 done. Thanks, again, to everyone who posted their kind comments.

Also, currently there is a problem at my site with Credit Cards. My Host's IT is looking into it. You may receive a "General Error" for Credit Card purchases right now. I will post a message here when this has been cleared up. PayPal is still working. It does, however, have the occasional hick-up. If so, just reorder again in a few minutes, as the original order never went through.
