Rough for Ep. 08, pg. 06. My sketches are typically an incredible mess. I concern myself more with nailing down the idea of the image in this stage, and refine as necessary. I don’t have to worry about passing off pencils to another artist, so this is usually as finished as I get before going straight to inks.
I was digging through a few directories on PoL’s old host, and found a handful of old bonus comics! Please forgive the old art.
Le preview panel (WIP)~
Speaking of new pages, I’m not really digging on some of the writing in the first few pages of Episode 08, so I’m afraid I’ll have to push the debut back to January 16th. Believe me when I say I’m not pleased about it, but I’d be even less pleased if I rolled out unsatisfactory pages. Please bear with me. :(
Haven’t posted a preview in a while. I’m a little more behind than I’d care to be, but updates are secured for at least a month right now.

SO, I thought that while the countdown to the comic’s return (6/13) is on, and I’ve gotten a couple of questions so far that will work well, it might be nice to have some AtC comics in the interim. That said, if there’s a question burning in your heart, why not take your pretty little selves over yonder to ask? http://prideoflife.com/atc.php
They’ll probably just be little one-pages that I can get done quickly, but AtC will have its typical multi-page comics after Episode 06 closes out.
Another upcoming superbeast and the sweetheart of Josephine below, meet the mighty Mussol. I imagine he speaks with a thick eastern European accent.
So, I’ve decided to go with cel-shading for the new pages. It’s faster, and now that I have a Cintiq, I can actually get nice quality of line in my colors, which wasn’t the case before using my seen-better-days Intuos3. Almost to the point where I can post previews again without mondo spoilers, yay!
