Drawing issue #2, writing issue #3...

Continuing to plod away on both the comic and this new website and figured I'd post another blog entry to make me feel productive while I take a drawing break...

I've updated the header image, added an About page, and uploaded the original 6 page story of Farlaine in the Tinderlands. Now there's at least some content here. I hope to add more as I can, but I'm still unsure what content to add...probably going to add some prelims, sketches, and character designs next.

I'm doing dual work right now, simultaneously brainstorming and writing issue #3, Farlaine in the Racelands, while also finishing the artwork of the final page of issue #2, Farlaine in the Saltlands. I've found that I can get into a nice groove of doing somewhere between a half and full page of finished ink art every day IF I have a complete script at the ready...but when I am solely working on writing I am often jumping around, taking breaks, brainstorming, or getting frustrated at being stuck. But seeing as the writing is so important, I need to make sure it's the best I can make it before I start drawing, or else I end up wasting time on throwaway work or a bad story.

So I'm trying to write issue #3 while I'm finishing drawing issue #2...the hope being that if I get better at the timing, I might be able to move right into drawing the next issue as soon as I finish the previous one. Currently there's a window of a week or two when I'm writing where no artwork is done, which is not good for the schedule...
