Dialog for This Comic

Here's a sample of what I've been working on for the past few months!

UPPER PANEL:

Avatar Sprite Template: Female Bunker

Tron Lines: Green

Animation: Hands forward, body arched

Color Swatches: W5 W7 YG13 E33 E37

Concept Art

extra suit pattern is different at this scale -- looks messy

went with male suit pattern

no chest highlight

gemstone is covered in last two frames -- OK?

arm highlights will be easier to draw digitally. sorry that these last few are messy -- see male animation for better drawing.

female suit -- no chest highlights -- went with male suit patterning b/c makes for cleaner animation

LMO 2/9/12

MIDDLE PANEL:

Large-scale animation drawn before being shrunk down to avatar size

LOWEST PANEL:

Partial animation sprite sheet

Still not dead yet

There are reasons why Summerside is taking forever. At this point, the question is to the tune of … “well, of course X is going to do Y, X would be a fool not to, what with having the means, motive, and opportunity for grand success at it. How does our heroine escape that particular peril?”

I will actually script Summerside and get it up and posted one of these days. I swear. It’s just a lot more complicated than it looks on the outside.

Still working on video game content, but I’m pleased to report that scripting has started for Summerside, if only in fits and starts. I have one of the missing pieces that I needed for it to make sense. (:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone! Happy Thanksgiving, if you’re in the US, and if you’re elsewhere, have a terrific day! (:

I have a guest strip up in the blog over at Little Vampires! Drop by and check it out, and check out Becky’s great comic while you’re there. (;

Hope you’ve enjoyed Springside! There’ll be full details on Tuesday, but I’ll be taking a short break for a while. This doesn’t mean no comics (there will be comics!) but it will be a bit before Summerside starts. Take it easy, and have great holidays!

[Leanne] Springside is DONE.

My buffer for Springside is complete. All the files have been uploaded. They are ready for your viewing as soon as they hit the schedule.

I’ll be spending the next few weeks working on getting the house ready to move, working to bring you a terrific Summerside script and comic, and … yeah.

I’m shaking, right now, literally. Springside has been a huge effort for me, and I hope you all will enjoy the rest of the story.

Edit: I realize that I haven’t updated you on the doctor’s visit. My doc says I have osteoarthritic tendinitis in my shoulder. This came complete with a calcific deposit you could see on the X-ray previews. I wasn’t smart enough to take pictures to show you. D’oh. I’ll be headed to physical therapy starting this week, and hopefully that will help.

[Leanne] Quick update

I’m back to having problems with my shoulder and hand. I’m thinking it isn’t actually carpal tunnel, but I may have slightly dislocated my shoulder. I’m going back to the doctor today.

All of the Springside comics are base-colored. I need to finish the detailing and the text.

I need to let you folks know that I will be taking a hiatus after Springside. Mark and I are planning on moving, and I will need every speck of time I can scrounge to make it work. I hope to be uploading Crow Feathers and bonus art pieces until I can focus my attention on Summerside properly.
