I also revised the first three pages using a nicer font called “Unmasked” that I found for free on Blambot. (Thank you!)
These first five pages form the prologue of the the story, and, allowing for the fact that I’m sketching on 8 1/2″ x 11″ size paper (most comic books are drawn on 11″ x 17″) I’m pleased with how things are turning out. To get more detail in the drawings I considered turning the paper horizontally and then using the two-tiered, horizontal format (see this post by Warren Ellis) but the horizontal format always reminds me of the Sunday funnies – which are great, but not the type of design I feel like playing with.
I know what you’re thinking: get bigger paper. But I’m not going to actually get bigger paper because I don’t have a bigger scanner. (There’s a joke full of sexual innuendo in there somewhere).
With luck I’ll have time to draw the next couple of pages this week, introducing our protagonists.
Thanks for reading! My drawing should get better with practice. Keep up to date with Fistful of Metal by liking Princess Revolver on Facebook!
