grOw/cOmic#5, issue 2 RELEASED!


grOwing Appreciation
Chapter 2: "Big Screen Premiere!" 
Available in either PREMIUM or STANDARD Editions!

Part 2 of a 5-issue series.

Jennie was in shock. After having grown to almost 7 feet tall by some unknown force, she started to experience further growth episodes at odd intervals. On top of that, the unprecedented solar phenomenon was wreaking havoc on the outside world, trapping the last few occupants of the movie theater inside the building with her — her boyfriend, Jack, the owner, Brandon, and an ├╝ber-giantess-fan, Guy, who was becoming obsessed with Jennie's growth. Jack, himself, was at odds between comforting his stressed girlfriend, and dealing with his own inner giantess-fan. He wrestled with his inner turmoil while watching his sweetheart grow and expand into the shapely goddess of his dreams.

Available in either PREMIUM or STANDARD Editions!

grOw/cOmic#5, Page 36 complete!

I worked a few extra hours again tonight, so that I could finish page 36, which is the last page of issue 2 of grOw/cOmic#5! A few more things have to be done before the release of the issue. First of all, I have to draw and color the cover to issue 3, which appears as a preview at the end of issue 2. I already have it planned out, so it shouldn't take too long. Then, a full proofreading of the issue — with the wonderful proofreading skills of my wife, Juliekat — and then the inevitable corrections. After that, the final PDF will be put together, and the store needs to be configured — both the eCommerce software, as well as my website. Unless there is a major delay that I need to announce, the next post here will be to announce the release of issue 2, "Big Screen Premiere!" of grOw/cOmic#5, "grOwing Appreciation"! This should be sometime between Wed., July 25 and Friday, July 27. Whoot!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 35 complete!!

Whew, I'm bushed. I spent an extra few hours today past my normal quitting time, finishing up page 35, the penultimate page to issue 2. Only 1 more page to go, and the cover to issue 3 (to be shown as a preview at the end of issue 2)! Unfortunately, I will be going away on a short trip on Thursday and Friday. I will get some work done tomorrow, but then I will continue on Monday. However, if all goes well, I hope to release issue 2, "Big Screen Premiere!", on or before Friday, July 27. Hang in there! We are very close!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 34 completed!

Whew! Just in time for the weekend, I was able to finish page 34 of issue 2 ("Big Screen Premiere!").  It was another detailed page that took some extra effort. However, I was able to nail down a streamlined method for making the draped cloth (which can be seen in the last few previews) — a process that took nearly an hour per panel on the first page, now takes only about 15-20 minutes.  And guess what?! Only 2 pages to go!  Enjoy the preview!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 33 completed!

I almost had this one done yesterday, but page 33 turned out to be more detailed than expected. This was mostly due to the use of the cloth textures, and needing to wrap them around curvy... uh, "curved"... objects.  ;)  Getting the right feel took a little extra work with the Warp and Liquify commands in Photoshop.  Now it's on to the last 3 pages and issue 3 cover! We're getting closer!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 32 completed!

Ha! Meant to do this earlier, but as I finished page 32, it was dinner time and tacos were calling me. Then, I forgot about posting this preview due to being in a taco-induced delirium. So, without further ado, here is the latest preview just before the weekend.  Only 4 pages to go!

grOw/cOmic#5, page 31 completed!

Whew — just finished page 31, and it was detailed. This is one of the reasons this took a little longer to finish. It's a good page, too! Only 5 pages to go!
