First off I want to apologize for being a day late. I attempted doing a 24 hour comic (unsuccessfully by the way) and I just wasn't in the mental state to do a site update, but without further adieu, here's today's post!
So here I am. I have one chapter of this comic underneath my belt, or one issue as the print aficionados would say. So I figured with every last page of a chapter, I should take a look back at that chapter that just came to past. So let's take a look at the chapter that started it all, number one.
Well. the first thing that comes to mind when I look back at the first 22 pages of Galsha (24 if you include the covers) is; "I'm glad I took the first step." Most artists are prone to look at their past work and just blast everything that they think sucks, or point things out that they can do so much better now (Yup... I'm pretty guilty of this in most of my work). I look back at the whole of the first chapter and I can honestly say that I'm proud of what I've done. If for no other reason, then I'm proud to have 22 pages of experience. Chapter 1 will definitely be the most unique feeling chapter in the series. I started creating the art for this series in late 2010 and I started off as an iconoclast who was against the use of digital tools to create any of the artwork for the comic. Now I have embraced the digital age that we're living in and and use the digital tools to my advantage for producing the comic. I still pencil and in traditionally so I guess it's the best of both worlds.
So yes, the first chapter more than anything feels like a first stepping stone for the rest of the series for me and the second chapter is moving right along (I'm inking strip #33 to give you a little peek behind the curtain.), and drawing the pages for chapter 3 will come before I know it.
Alright, time to get back to running this comic marathon.
Thanks for reading,
