Minicomic #3 coming soon!
After the lovely review from the Forbidden Planet blog I really wanted to show that we have a new one coming along very soon, so here is an early peek at how page one has turned out after colouring. Plus it’s a longer story! With these minis I’m trying to push my drawing a bit more each time and so far I’m very pleased with how story three is shaping up visually.
We have been a bit quiet since Thought Bubble, but we’ve got a new Imaginary Gumbo minicomic roughed out and I’m just working on the final lineart. With the new year we’ll have a lot more popping up on here and our website, more Gumbo stuff, more Lil Rollers, more everything!
Here’s a little Charlie for you for now, revealing that she has a little hat in the new short story. SPOILERS!
Charlies mum! Can fix the roof of the farmhouse, make cakes and know when Charlie’s Up To Something all at the same time.
New Gumbo pic for Halloween! Everyone thinks it’s Charlies mum with a modified Darth Vader voice changer helmet on.
WIP: Imaginary Gumbo Halloween illustration. I’m trying to fight my urge to clean my inks all the time, scribbly is good! I think the more I clean them up, the more life gets lost in the characters. I had a very neat version of Charlie here but it looked so bland that I went back to my initial scribbling layer and just took out some construction lines. So she’s got this wonky grin and scruffy hair that I really like.
Gumbo is pretty sure you’re not supposed to get this many sweets for trick-or-treating.
Gumbo gets all sad about his ice cream. Then Charlie pats him on the hand and buys him a balloon instead.
She gets him one shaped like a piggy.
