Shanna the She-Devil pencils by deankotz
Shanna the She-Devil pencils
Just trying a new method.  Instead of my usual 2 or 3 rounds of tight color-pencil layouts on separate scrap sheets before lightboxing the final pencils, this time I did a looser layout on the scrap, somewhat tight blue pencils on the final board and tight final pencils over that.  Don't know if it's quicker or better, but it was an interesting experiment. 

Pencil on bristol, 11"x17"

The last few weeks have been really busy 'round here.  Couple projects/issues are in the preliminary stages and I haven't had any free time for sketches or other things to post.  Red Panda's still truckin' along.  Gregg's script for the next two-parter is a lot of fun.  Even has some zombies involved.  Part one is out on Comixology 10/15. 

For anyone going to NYCC this weekend: please come visit me at table V12 in Artist Alley! I'll be hunkered down doing sketches most of the weekend.  Artist Alley is always a little more peaceful than the main floor, so, if you need a break from the crowds, head toward the North Pavilion.

Congrats on the successful funding of your comic, Dean! A great way to start the New Year, wouldn't you say? :)

Considering last year, it's an AMAZING way to start, Zoe! Here's hoping yours is better than last, as well!
