A few pages back I entertained the idea of only doing roughdraft pages. Ideally, I at least wanted to finish this episode for the sake of visual consistency, then start Season 2 with roughdrafts only. Most of you were okay with the idea, since I update so slowly. But I'm updating slower than I thought so I'm doing it now.
There are a lot of reasons why I update SQ slowly; after drawing all day/week for work, I'm not always in the mood to draw SQ, even though it's my most favorite thing. I made this roughdraft last night, I make roughdrafts pretty quick - but I still don't enjoy coloring and doing backgrounds so I end up putting pages off for a while, then dragging my feet through the process of finishing it, which is why it can end up taking a month to complete. It ends up feeling like an obligation.
The comic is really a prototype too, the animated version is slightly different in some areas. It's sort of a dead end, I’m not going to restart it - but it’s still useful because I can test ideas with it. And without starting it, it wouldn’t have turned into what it is today. Having ideas on paper isn’t the same, the comic sorta took on a life of it’s own and with established characters Jeff and I just throw them into situations and it writes itself!
I'm going to continue doing SQ for fun, which is why I started it in the first place, and with the rest of my time work on concept art for the SQ Show Bible, my usual work, and my youtube channel.
I think I said this before, but I don't care if the pages are done in rough draft form. I personally hope they will be colored in and finished on a later date. who knows maybe in a year from now this one will be finished. (That's me just hoping)
And I was actually thinking that too, coloring special pages, or at the very least special panels. It's been a while since I've read any mangas in Barnes N Nobles, but I remember reading a few that'd do that and I liked it when I was a wee boy.
I have a feeling that the last panel tryed to explain the genie a ltttle bit more. Like how I asked if the genie follows who ever is holding the lamp. to be completely honest I have no idea If I inspired that part or not, most likely not. (now looking back at it now, it seems more like it's a final desperation attempt to get out of being killed more than anything) whelp who cares if I inspired a part or not. (Besides me)
i like how it cuts to black and white right when jeremy gets hit in the head. like if the lamp hit him so hard that he can't see color any more. maybe that can be one way to explain the sudden cut to some what colorless pages.
@DerpyMooCow; I'll try, this week is kinda busy since real Jeff got married and we have friends visiting from out of town!
@Maverick_Mentation, I'll allow it. But, these are shaded rough draft pages. The clean lineart isn't there so it might look kinda, not great. If someone does it I dunno if I'll use it - but people can do whatever they please!
