Papercut: "Waiting." (part 3)


Part 3 of my story "waiting" is now online at my webcomic Papercut. As frequent visitors to my blog might know, Papercut is part of the Transmission-X group of webcomics, all created and owned by a talented group of Toronto based cartoonists. Well, except Karl Kershl's Abominable Charles Christopher -- Karl moved away to Montreal a few months back, and we sorely miss him.

Anyway, I hope you'll check out the site and read the story for yourselves. For those interested, and in keeping with my regular posting trend, you can examine the process from thumbnail to finished art for the page below:

These are great, Mike. So much mood and atmosphere. It always amazes me how you manage to create such great compositions with "only" one color.

Amazing stuff. Any hopes of seeing these pages in graphic novel form one of these days?

Dan: thanks, Dan! Always nice to hear such kind words from an artist I admire. Regarding atmosphere and mood, I actually find it's EASIER to establish things like that in two-tone than in full colour (or in straight up black and white). I don't have to worry about established notions of colour, but rather just concern myself with getting the lighting down properly (which I find is one of the keys to setting mood).

As for a graphic novel, yep -- when I have enough stories, I'll collect them into a book form.

Anonymous: thanks for the kind words. My french is terrible, so I'll just respond in english. As for drawing tips or pointers, I really doubt I could help you out in such a limited space as my blog. All I can recommend is study art, and try and discover why the art you like 'works' the way they do.
