Chapter 1 - Pages 16-18



Some of you might have noticed that I took last week off from posting, so this week I'm coming back with a super-sized posting for the finale of Chapter 1. Three (3) count them THREE (3) pages for your enjoyment this week. Pages 16-18 for those of you keeping score at home.
Now that Chapter 1 is finished, I'm taking a break from "The Jolly Hank" for a little while. I've got some other projects to get to, and need to focus elsewhere for a little bit. But don't worry, before too long, I'll be back posting the next Chapter of Dan and Amy's adventures. Bigger and badder than even this chapter.
Thanks for hanging with me on this Chapter. Check back here and keep tabs on me through Twitter and my Illustration page for other artwork and updates on the Jolly Hank.

Chapter 1 - Pages 14 & 15(inks)

This was a fun layout and spread to work on right from the start. Pencilling was fun, figuring out where everything went, and then I got on to inking here. Inking the silhouettes was done with a brush, which is NOT my strongest tool. Still fun to play with and fill in. Once inking was done, I was really happy with it and it was one of those spreads where even though there's a lot of negative empty space, all the elements seemed to work well together.




Check back in Monday for a new post.

Chapter 1 - Pages 14 & 15

Pages 14 & 15 kick off your work week this week. I was very happy with how this double page spread worked together and formed one big picture that still told a story around it.
There's 2 more weeks of new posts in Chapter 1. After Chapter 1 is done, I will be taking a hiatus from the Jolly Hank for awhile, to work on some other projects that have been pushed aside. It will be back, so check back often.
Also I plan to have inked pages for sale within the week on my etsy store, so keep an eye out for that. Original inked pages from this story will be available.
Thanks for checking in on Amy and Dan and remember to check back on Thursday to see inked versions of these pages.

Chapter 1 - Page 12 & 13 Inks

Inks for this week's pages. I kept on inking with the nib for most of these pages, though I did use a brush and ink for the silhouette of Dan on page 12 and Microns for some of the finer details
Be sure to check back Monday for new pages. Only a few weeks left for Chapter 1.

Chapter 1 - Pages 12 & 13


This week we meet Dan, former human, currently inhabiting a robotic keg body. He's based on my brother in law who is a tech guy who's into home brewing, and I think this is how he pictures himself anyway.
Original art from this chapter will be going up for sale soon. I will be selling the original inked pages from this comic on my etsy page. Please check back here to this site for links to that page.

Page 10 & 11 Inks


Here's Pages 10 & 11 uncolored. I've got them set up as a 2-page spread on this one. I'm a day late on this post, I know, and I'm sorry about that. We've had some technical difficulties involving computer viruses in the past week that hasn't been good for anyone here. Sorry for the tardiness and enjoy the pages.
Check in Monday morning for 2 more new pages. Only a few more weeks until the end of Chapter 1.
