I start my journey today. This journey will take me through the process of creating my comic book from beginning to end. I'll document ideas, changes, insecurities, and everything that aids in the making of this book. I've had this script since 1998 and I am just now getting to work on the art part.
"Everything is in my head."
The story is called Ghosts: The Corechasers and it is an action/sci-fi story. I don't have a written synopsis yet, but everything is in my head. That is one of the problems when being the creator and artists of a story, it becomes difficult to summarize. You just want to tell the whole story. But I'll go through that step too. As I get deeper into the book, the name will make more sense to you. For now, I am just working on getting all my stuff together to start the work.
I have already created the cover by using reference from books. Yup, I said books, actual page-flipping books. All the reference was taken in a time before Google when I had to go to the library and search for images and flip through photo stock books that conveyed what I was looking for.
I don't usually do the cover first, but I was just too excited to see a poster of this team. I even hand-lettered the title on the page. Even writing about this process makes me want to draw them right now.
Until next time, it's sketchtime.
