Hello, beautiful people!
So I know it has been a while since my last journal entry. I am just chiming in to let you all know how the progress
on my graphic novel, The Outcasts: Memories
I estimate that I am about 1/3 of the way done with the pencils for the book. I did not expect that I would be drawing so many panels for so many pages! I am already up to 80 pages. So, to be on the safe side, I am pushing my deadline for finishing the pencils back to the end of fall, instead of the end of the summer. Hopefully I can still meet the deadline for finishing the whole book by the end of the year.
Also, there will be some changes to the art style and finished look of the book; instead of colouring it like I intended to, I will just leave the pages inked (black and white). I feel my skills as a penciler and inker have increased over the past year, so I feel my art can stand on its own now without colour. Plus, colouring the comic takes time and money that I do not have this year. It just seems like an unnecessary step at this point.
