more everybody comes to raphs

so if you’ve been reading along in our casablanca/tmnt mashup, the story continues here

or you could start here. which was kind of where we started, but its not the beginning of the movie.

mostly we skipped around to the parts where we could make pizza jokes.

the photo here is one of the sketches for this strip

and if you haven’t seen casablanca you should stop reading this right now, go watch it, and then come back and read these. you’ll get twice as many jokes. maybe more

 

timelapse of the airplane drawing

Forgot to turn on the screen capture of me going from the sketchbook sketch to the digital sketch, from yesterday’s on the airplane strip, so here’s the sketchbook sketch:

And then the timelapse begins after i get the digital sketch overlaid.

As you can tell, I really had some trouble figuring out the color for this one. I ended up back at the watercolor look, but without the ‘ink’ lines on top…

 

popcorn sketches from the sketchbook

maybe the most important part of doing the strip is figuring out the timing

when trying to do that my sketches can look more like the diagrams you see in the top half of the page

then comes figuring out the props like the chair you see in the bottom half of the page

I also need to figure out the main poses

here you can see I really had trouble with that left leg

see it all come together

for the last few months i’ve felt pretty energized, creatively speaking

(i’d been reading lynda barry’s syllabus, and i think that gave me quite a bit of fuel and confidence, both)

for the last few weeks my creative juices are feeling lower

i havent been putting out as many strips this month, and for some reason they’ve seemed harder to come by

i can only hope i’m in just a seasonal artistic funk

so this one is from the sketchbook

i’m not sure what to do with little moments like these, since they have dialogue and only feature one panel, which don’t seem to fit the rules i’ve created for myself here

in the meantime you can scroll through all of the ‘steps’ strips here
