This is the re-do of the old cover for issue #2,which is the book I'm releasing for free via PDF on the interwebs. My wife is an amazing Art Director she has been giving me lots of great feedback on this journey. Originally the head was more rendered and she gave me the thought of leaving the figure of Oink mostly in silohoutte, it made the piece way more impactful and got accross the vibe of what I was aiming for.

Here's an update on this cover with a lot of feedback I got from folks, thanks!! I really believe in critique I look at these things for a long time so fresh perspective is always welcome!

This was a straggler page so it's out of order with anything I've posted here. Chapter 2 is now complete so I'm going to wrap it all up into a PDF and release it in a month or so. I'm anxious to see how it reads! haha...crap that only took 3 years of after hours, weekends, and christmas holidays. The other 2 chapters will go much faster I's all about momentum!
Here's a the final on that promo sketch I posted a while back.

New page I enjoy these quick little portrait talking head pages, they go pretty fast and it's fun to explore the angles.

I had this dream last night and it was a story called The Butcher's Boy. The story was about a little pig boy being raised by a butcher, he feeds the pigs and takes care of the shop, but he's only allowed out at night and he can never see where the pigs some point the Butcher who loves the boy either dies or the boy sees him slaughtering the pigs and he runs off into a city filled with people who are horrified by him. He runs and runs until he meets a little girl who doesn't seem to care that he's a pig-boy, she befriends him and convinces him he's special...well her parents find out about the pig boy and put him in a barrel and throw him in a river to not be associated with such will probably twist and turn a bit more, but it ends wit the boy thinking he's escaping and running down the road to this point...only to see factories stretching to the horizon....or something like that. It was a powerful dream.
Here's the final Angel's splash page, pretty much redesigned the page. This first part of the second act had a lot of rework, but I'm glad I'm starting in the middle so I can really kill the last issue next and then just make the first 30 pages my best work.

Here's the finish on the sketch from the last post. This was a brand new page that wasn't in the original series. I took the one page intro from the second act and split into two to give a bit more weight to the intro of these guys and establish the setting.

I'm doing a process series to illustrate what 'digitally remastered' means...sometimes it's just re doing a page entirely.
