I'm just about finished penciling the first page of my new book, except it's not the first page, but rather the 10th page on issue two or three, but not sure. I've finished roughing five pages and all I have to do now is finish them. I'm hoping to pencil all the pages by the middle of next week, but I'm trying to take it slow so I don't make any simple mistakes that might jeopardize our chances at Image.
This week's sketch challenge was fun and I'm showing more of the style I'm doing the new book in.

Another sketch challenge for you all to view.
This week I'm working on the test pages I plan to send to Image and I'm hoping there will be good news to report. My writer Mike is working hard and I really like the pages we've done so far. I haven't colored anything yet, but I'm planning to do that last, as I have to come up with a process that I'm happy with before I start and once I do start I have to bury myself in just coloring. Once the process is complete then it doesn't take me long to do a page, but this time I'm thinking of hiring a Flatter to help with the coloring.
As you can see my style is more detailed and this is how I'll be drawing the pages. What you can expect in this new story is Sci-fi, cyborgs that look more like Zombies, and action from start to finish. We're pacing this story like an action film, so it should be entertaining.
We’ve already come up with the story and all the background details from main characters, so all is left are the five page submission package. We’ll write a one page synopsis and I still have to make the cover and logo.

I'm keeping busy doing the Idol pages for the Play at Home thread, which is just for fun. I'm told there are some editors that look there, so I'm doing it for them too. I just bought a house today and I'll move in Monday, so with these pages and moving I'll be keeping busy. I'll be starting the pages for the new project I'm doing and submitting it to Image. My writer is really good, so this project is promising. I'm hoping Image will except it and I'll be able to get the first series published in 2008.
