Gargoyle's stuff

I just finished coloring the last page of issue one last night. I just have a few touch ups left and then uploading everything to the SLG server. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. This is a great little comic. And I really feel great about my colors. Something happened after talking to Brian Stelfreeze at Aggiecon, because there's a remarkable difference in the pages before then and after then. I imagine by the time we get to the third or fourth issue we'll be doing some really fantastic work on this book. So there's an article up at the pulse and I guess it's the same one as THIS . David Hedgecock, the penciler on the book, gives me a nice little shout out. Pretty cool. Thanks David. --Will

awesome stuff dude! Hopefully you get the chance to pencil. Actually, you could probably pencil, ink and color the whole thing yourself.

Thanks Enrique. I think it turned out great too. I had a lot to work with though. I'm glad you think I could do it all myself.

That's the thing though. I have the skills to pencil, ink, color and even letter and publish this. But I don't have the discipline. This coloring thing has been great for me. It's the first time that I've worked a daily schedule to meet a deadline. I have a real routine now, and almost an addiction to getting stuff done.

Before I would usually "dabble" at it. Working when I felt like it... when the muse hit me. That's also why I've never completed a full issue of anything so far. Just lots of quality short stories. So I'm starting to get the idea of how to pencil/ink/color a full story myself. Which is good, cause I've lots of them.

I understand. At home, the personal projects that need to be done, feels more like a hobby because you have no time limit (well usually there is, but it's hard to take a serious when you're not getting paid)and you can take a break from it whenever. When you're getting paid to work, it's a whole different story. you're a nervous reck and sweating because you're hoping to meet deadline that is coming up. You have to cut many corners, but at the same time it must look professional. It's cool too because you start creating your own little methods to finish something and it's your little secret.
I know alot of people say that they don't want to work for a production, that they rather do there own stuff, and that's cool; but it feels rewarding when you know you can climb the corporate ladder as well.

You're right. There's a definite urgency to get it done. I don't want to blow this. But the book I was working on before this was a paying gig. Penciling and eventually coloring too. But I didn't have the same urgency. I guess because there was no official deadline. Just get it done as soon as I can.

But I'm starting to Feel it now. I've got Gargoyles to work on, and I may have another series to color soon as well. But on top of that I think I can find a way to fold penciling into this schedule - Into the urgency. I can see that coloring won't get me where I want to go in my career. But it could pay the bills. Penciling is the only way to really do the things I want to do. I think that's my corporate ladder.
