Happy Friday everyone. We’ve got a new page up over at http://www.scaredbythebell.com – that you can check out here!
I’m slowly getting a little more comfortable with the colors. You’ll notice this one has an attempt at a color Palette (orange and blue). We’re touching on this a bit in my coloring class. There is also a cool video about color schemes HERE.
So, the general plan is – to finish the flats on this issue, backtrack on issue 1, and then proceed onward with issue 3. Boy, does flatting just take forever. Maybe I can do a more informed post where I break down my flatting, then my cell shading.
But although I can tell I’m still figuring stuff out, I really like some of the cell shading I did on accident.
Been watching the Ghost in the Shell TV series, “Stand Alone Complex.” Really enjoyable. Any Ghost in the Shell fans out there that haven’t checked it out, I enjoyed it and am now making my way to second season.
I also finished the original Ghost in the Shell Manga and enjoyed it. It’s need to see the SEEDS that were used in the movie – but an entirely different tone than the Oshii Anime that exposed me to the material in the first place.
- Ghost in the Shell
- Orc Stain
- Neuromancer by William GIbson
- Barkskins by Annie Proulx
- Sacred Heart (really liking this) You can read it online HERE
On my Desk to Read:
- Black Monday Murders #6
- Brittania #3
What I’m watching:
- Blame – Netflix Anime
- Ghost in the Shell – Stand Alone Complex – Second Gig – 2nd Season (rented from local video store – yes we have one of those still in Ventura)
- Kill-la-kill is just zany.
I backed a Kickstarter of one of my favorite webcomics that I recommend you read and or support. You can find it HERE.
Anyways, just a little update on things. I’m considering grad school – which means I’ll be crazy busy for… hmmm…. the next 3 years of my life. But, I have allocated 18 to 20 hours a week for comics (because coloring takes forever). I also really want to do a horror comic as well – but that might have to wait till I am ahead more on Scared by the Bell.
