Building Up to Updates

November 26, 2017

Been very quiet, but also very busy.

I’ve been steadily working on Issue 2 stuff for Apothecary Supreme, the plan being to build up an actual backlog rather than updating page-to-page. When I show pages again I plan to have consistent updates, likely around Christmas.

To anyone who is following, thank you for your patience! Once I get stuff out of the gate again it should be at consistent pace =)

More Apothecary Supreme concepts

September 9, 2017
A few more new characters and monsters – I’ll let you guess which is which – showing up in the next Apothecary supreme issue.
 
I’ve been working on planning for a while now, in terms of both visuals and story for Issue 2. I feel like there’s a LOT more I could do in this regard but it may well be at the expense of momentum. Past experience has taught me that it is possible to overplan, with a great deal of pre-production content becoming irrelevant anyway and damaging motivation as production ends up feeling creatively restrictive.
 
In a nutshell; time to get started proper.

My, my I’ve been embarrassing infrequent lately! I’d say it was all work but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to a little slacking… The conclusion is tantalisingly close now though so I’ll be sure to redouble my efforts!

Apothecary Supreme Page 23 – Stuff gets heated

Things have been quite chatty so a page without any dialogue seems like an appropriate pause as the plot changes gears again. There was dialogue but ultimately it seemed a bit silly to have the ‘dragon’ mouthing off while blasting fire…

Stuff is getting all actiony! Which is a bit embarassing given how slow production is moving these days; were this a movie it would be the most awkward slomo freeze frame in the history of cinema…

Still! I am pleased how this one finally turned out, particularly in regards to the looser, more frantic linework as things really start to move. Check it out here:
