Descent Into Madness... My Time In Ithaqa, part 2

in comics •  25 days ago

No major updates tonight as I am bound by time... trapped in the world of the "clopen"... damn you Iss-Nagish! For those of you who have never worked in a retail type situation, the "clopen" is the combination of shifts where a person is scheduled to close up shop one night, and open it up the next morning as well, thereby giving the least amount of free time between episodes of drudgery as possible. Which of course rolls over into the amount of time and energy available for important pursuits... like drawing comics! And for those who don't know of Iss-Nagish... you just have to read a bit more about Ithaqa by @drwatson!

 

Anyways, I managed to get a bit more work in on my pin up piece for the Ithaqa crowdfunding campaign on Fundition, which I discussed in my last post. Let's say that the loose threads of the composition are coming together...

 




 

This is a rough "blue line" sketch of the composition in progress, depicting Margaret and Hazel during a moment of eerie exploration. This stage is more to build form, proportion, and layout rather than detail. At this point all the work has been done digitally. In order to create a one of a kind original art piece for this event, I'll soon be printing this onto Bristol board and doing most of the heavy lifting with good old fashioned pencil and ink.

 

I'll share further process shots of the detail work over the coming days. This piece of original art or other rewards could be yours by supporting the Ithaqa campaign with your votes and donations! And just like with my Descent Into Madness, part 1; I'll be donating the liquid non Steem Power rewards from this post to the Ithaqa campaign as well.

I hope this piques your interest, but know that it will really start to come to life throughout the rest of this week!

Woohoo! Glad you’re excited. I’m basically just copying your scene so a huge nod to you!

It looks great as your job is going! I want to see how to stay ahead so far I think it will be wonderful

Thank you! I’m going to work hard on this. It is always more stressful for me to draw other people’s characters. It is easier to draw my own ideas because I have no one to disappoint but myself!

I love that you have been a little time @bryan-imhoff, so I can see your comics, it looks great!
I hope the days go by quickly to see the process
That rat has very large teeth, seems to be sleepy or hungry!
It's nice of you to want to donate your reward to help.

I’m happy you enjoy seeing it! I feel like it is not much to show, but since I don’t post often I like to put some things out to remind everyone I’m still around!

It would be great if you had the time to publish every day, although now with the little we earn and how low the price of Steem you can think it's not worth it... in my case I have to do it every day and waiting that my post win a little more.

Thankfully, I don’t have an immediate need to use my Steem, so I don’t care about the current value. I simply dream and hope what it may be worth in the future!

I also dream about that day, but unfortunately I do need the SBD or Steem because the situation in Venezuela we must survive, which does not let me save my coins :(
