i haven't posted in a while and as a stark contrast to my last post i kind of want to gush a bit. i'm going to try to do so with out exposing to much, because if i've learned anything over the last few years it's to hold in you're work until it's almost ready.
anyway i'm almost done with the script on book 3 i would have been done a lot sooner but the first draft i penned didn't play well and i really wanted to (of course). i've really enjoyed writing this one the cast is really coming together and a lot of really unexpected character development is happening. every book seems to be a test of some kind for me. book one was to see if i could draw a entire comic at all, book two was the challenge of writing a dialog only book, and now on book three i'm trying to see what a book would look like with out me holding anything back. all of my comics are pretty heavily edited. i end up cutting so much for the sake of page length and continuity and just sticking to the point. for example in book one stefan was originally going to have a fight with officer hardcastle to but i cut it because i felt it was distracting from the point of the story. and there was a skate boarding scene in book two that i cut because it was plain old unnecessary.
well i'm not doing any of that in book 3 what ever i think of is going in the book, the way i see it i don't have publishers or dead lines so i might as well indulge myself. but anyway, i'm going to do two little gushes and then i'm done.
- number one) this is a Nina heavy book and it's so much fun to script! i love this character, i love drawing her, i love how she talks, she's awesome to me! it's so gauche and i'm sorry but i'm full to bursting and i don't have any one to really say it to so i'm just yelling it on the intarnets!
- the second thing) thing isn't so much gushing as a funny thought. there's a scene in the book where some has to show her a website and when i was writing it i actually had them go to a library to get on the internet. as soon as i put that on paper i felt so old. in the age of smart phones the idea was kind of absurd and it made me chuckle. i'm surprised i didn't have them look something up on microfiche. :)
well that's it really, just another post were i wanted to get something off my back. tone a lot better though right? it sucks though because i probably won't be done drawing till some time next month barring any craziness.
anyway have fun out there!
