Comic Colour Roughs!

Being a Canadian who lives in the U.S. makes me rethink how I spell 'colour' every time I write it. Ha. I tend to opt for the Canadian spelling. I like 'U's in words.

Anyway! I was sending off some comic stuff to my writing group for an article in their newsletter about graphic novels and I came across these colour studies I did for the opening scene and I thought they might be interesting to post here.

Thanks to Nathan Lindsay's good suggestion about using my digital camera as a temporary scanner, I hope to post some new drawings now and then too. I did bring a little wacom.

Vancouver is beautiful and everyone at Rainmaker is very nice. I wish Stephen and the cats could be up here with me too though. :)

awesome stuff as always....and since you're just up the road now (and not very good answering the e-mail yo)...give a yell, I know the girls would love to see you again...and maybe Burke too, but I warn you...he smells of feet and dorotos.

Hi Sarah,

I did the same thing - using a little Wacom when I'm away from home - it works pretty well, but I don't like using my Laptop LCD screen - not the best for seeing colors (Or as you say Colours). ;)

Digital cameras work great too - It's a studio on the go!

Take Care,
Dave

I was already looking forward to your novel, just because I like your art and storytelling. But now I see you've got ninjas in it!
