Reporting In!

I’m alive!! I’ve been out of state/on vacation for the past two weeks. It was refreshing, but I didn’t get to work on any new art while I was out. Still, I have been working on Millie & Vern, and I have proof that I am not just all talk with nothing to show for: I have photographic evidence!!

I’ve been hard at work with whatever time I have to spare getting ideas written down, doodling designs and planned shots, even working on the first draft of the script, which I’ll then use to plan out my panels! Obviously, I’m new to the process, but I found the right flow for myself. And, I want to thank everyone for sticking with me and not unfollowing me. Of course, I’ll be taking breaks from Millie & Vern every now and then to doodle some fanart (and other things), so that should keep me from getting too annoying. Seriously guys; thank you!!

Major Edit: ”What is Millie & Vern even about!”, I hear you all screaming. I’ve never actually said anything before, huh. Well, here’s the best thing I can say without giving away too much: It’s about a little girl named Millie who befriends an Alien seeking something valuable [on Earth], and about the treasure hunting adventure she finds herself tangled up in. Mayhem, adventure, and ice cream eating ensues!

My current phone cover is on its last leg, so its high time I replace it. Thinkin’ of custom making one with this as the image on the back. Overly simplistic, but it’ll turn out small anyway.

Just a bit of fun detailing the process for my last piece, utilizing value shading (creating piece in grayscale before adding color). I don’t usually share this kind of stuff for feeling there’s a lack of interest, but if anybody likes seeing little process shots then by all means let me know! : )

Happy 4th to everyone chilling here in America, and happy Friday to those everywhere else! It’s been a pretty lazy day, and I haven’t been as active as I’d like to be. Well, while that may not exactly change I am excited to give you guys some Millie & Vern related news…

I’ve decided to bite my previous decision in the butt, and return to the idea of making Millie & Vern an actual comic!!  

That’s right; a comic! I’ve been spending the last couple months on a solid backbone for the story to revolve around, and since I’ve begun to feel more confident with my choice I only felt it right to let everybody know. So…look forward to hearing some more news from me, and wish me luck!

Next order of business is to get my script up and running so I can start sketching out some awesome panels soon. —D.
