Sketch bookin'

It's coming down to the last day of the convention, and while I'm away from my desk 
and couldn't post a new issue this sunday 
I can post two new never before seen sketch books.

Goblyn Sketchbook Two is finally finished after two file corruptions,
as well as the completion of  Goblyn Sketchbook Three.

both have some really interesting development work, from the past years, and some ramblings here and there by me about the drawing i scribble on the papers.

I hope you enjoy them.
next sunday, back on schedule and back to J. Mephisto's life altering arc.

Goblyn Sketchbook Three

the third and final sketchbook collection for Goblyn Volume one.
there are a lot of sketches in this one that I use in the literal production of the issues 
as visual reference.
honestly there are a few things in here i didn't exactly want you to see just yet, but i figure "what the hey, it'll be more fun for you when it comes around again in an issue of the series."

Goblyn Sketchbook Two

this sketchbook should have been posted, after issue 12 of Goblyn.
sorry about the super lateness.
collects sketch work and dev conceptuals between issues 6 and 12

finally finished this one. after all the failed attempts.
less in depth than the first sketchbook, but still quite a nice bundle
of work. some I hadn't looked at in ages.

Goblyn Issue 29b

this issue gave me a lot of trouble. not because of any effects work, or difficult colouring tasks. although the glass in this issue took me beyond my one hour per page limit, and colouring the BG of the Aulp Bank got really annoying after a while. No... it was the layout that gave me the most trouble this issue. I woke up this morning ready to publish the issue, and I looked at the mess of an issue i had created. So I sat down and tried to figure out how I could reorder the pages to make a coherent story again. I know this is a familiar story from me, but I can honestly say this is one of the benefits to self publishing. I can change the way an entire story unfolds at the last minute.
I like this way better.
hooray for self publishing.

Goblyn Issue 29a


This issue posted late. I apologize.
I'm juggling making comics and getting all the items prepared for a convention coming up in a few weeks.
I'm very happy with a few specific scenes in this issue, the Data sheet, and the cover, which is 100% digital
and I think looks pretty good.
it was fun to draw, fun to colour, and made me smile when it was finished.
which is rare, for my covers.
they almost always make me frown

Goblyn Issue 28b

the pencil is back to the paper and new issues of Goblyn are being made.
it feels good to be back in this series. I don't know how to explain it exactly.
when I'm working on it, I'm always tired, and stressed... but happy.
when I'm not working on it, 
I'm always thinking about it, going over dialog and different scenes.
anxious and lost... just all around unhappy.
oh! i guess that's sort of an explanation hunh?
weird right?

this issue is a very quick read, but it's also a pretty big event.

this part of the story featuring J. and Dol was one of my super confusing dreams, 
in that i woke from it going "wait... what?!" 
but i loved the visuals so much I had to sketch it all down
and write down what happened.
a few more issues are left before the dream is fully told
and J's role in this series begins to become very clear.

Sorry about all the silence.
 the comic returns September 12th

I've been back to working on Munch Chunky for a little while now
i have almost a weeks lead on each issue, which is super duper good.
I've also been working on the last tracks of the OST.
they were left in the cold so long ago, and now i have to dust them off, repair them, and make them awesome.
also... I was working on the Munch Chunky Databook. I'm loving it. it's SO MUCH FUN.
