As mentioned before, I’ve been busy — as in the case of this post. For the December newsletter at work I thought it would be a “fun” idea to make a comic insert featuring Dot and Lionel.
The sketching wasn’t the rough part; figuring out how to break up the actions was tougher. And the blueline and inking went OK too. Illustrator’s gap detection, though, was suboptimal in places; I had to add a lot of paths to get the fills to work, particularly on pages 3 and 4.
Still, I think the effect overall is pretty good. The JPEGs of the comic follow the fold, with a link to the PDF at the bottom. The PDF is imposed to print on an 11 x 17 tabloid sheet.
(Oh, in the bottom left image on page 2, the kids are shouting “Banzai!” I was going for an over-the-top manga-style look there.)
