The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Relaxation” Webcomic Mini Series

2017-artwork-damania-relaxation-lineart-article-sketch

Well, since my “Damania Relaxation” webcomic mini series finished recently, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing of all of the ‘work in progress’ line art that I scanned whilst making it.

Unlike some of my previous mini series, there weren’t really that many (if any) significant dialogue or art changes between the line art and the finished comics. The most noticeable is probably the extra speech bubble that was added to the final panel of the third comic (but is missing in the line art).

Likewise, thanks to a foolish decision to go ‘back to basics’ with this mini series, the line art sometimes looks a lot more… spartan …than usual.

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Replicated” Webcomic Mini Series

2017-artwork-damania-replicated-lineart-article-sketch

Sorry that it’s a day or two late, but I thought that I’d show off the ‘work in progress’ line art for my “Damania Replicated” webcomic mini series that finished in late July.

This was probably one of the most art-intensive webcomic mini series that I’ve made (which is probably why I won’t be making a comic this month – but there will be at least one short “old-style” mini series in September).

This mini series also required a lot more digital image editing than usual – in fact, you can see where I totally messed up one of the comics (and later had to fill in a very large panel digitally). Plus, there are a few blank spots where digital effects were later added after I’d finished painting.

In terms of dialogue differences between the line art and the finished comic, there aren’t actually that many in this mini series. If I remember rightly, I only had to replace or remove a couple of speech bubbles during post-production editing.

Anyway, here’s the line art 🙂 As usual, you can see a larger version of each picture by clicking on it.

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My ‘Damania Recovery’ Webcomic Mini Series

2017-artwork-damania-recrovery-lineart-article-sketch

Well, since my ‘Damania Recovery’ webcomic mini series finished recently, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off all of the ‘work in progress’ line art that I scanned whilst making this mini series.

If I remember rightly, apart from a few small dialogue and art corrections [For example, the line art for the last two panels of the first comic mistakenly showed Rox using a smartphone… which is totally out of character for her] , there weren’t that many post-production changes to this comic. Unusually, most of the major changes (to the art, dialogue, panel layouts etc..) took place between my original plans for this comic and the line art that is included in this article.

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Relocated” Webcomic Mini Series

2017-artwork-damania-relocated-lineart-article-sketch

Well, since my “Damania Relocated” webcomic mini series finished recently, I thought that I’d do the usual thing of showing off all of the ‘work in progress’ line art from when I made this comic.

If I remember rightly, there were quite a few dialogue changes between the line art and the finished comics. This was mostly because I foolishly took a “I’ll make most of it up as I go along” approach to planning the comic, which resulted in a lot of post-production dialogue changes.

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Regenerated” Webcomic Mini Series

2017-artwork-damania-regenerated-lineart-article-sketch

Well, as usual, here’s the complete “work in progress” line art for my “Damania Regenerated” webcomic mini series that finished recently.

If I remember rightly, there weren’t that many major art/dialogue changes between the line art and the finished comics – although I toned down some of the violent drama in the final panel of “Creatures” (eg: the small alien actually survives in the finished comic – although it’s a little difficult to spot) because I felt that it was slightly too harsh in it’s original form.

The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My “Damania Reverie” Webcomic Mini Series

2017 Artwork Damania Reverie lineart article sketch

Well, since my “Damania Reverie” webcomic mini series finished yesterday, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off the “work in progress” line art that I scanned whilst making the comic.

If I remember rightly, there weren’t actually that many major dialogue or art changes between the line art and the finished comics in this mini series. The most major one is probably in the “Glass Houses” comic. Originally, Harvey found a large bag of drugs but I decided to change this to counterfeit coins in the final comic both because I thought that this comic update was already a bit too much on the “gloomy and serious” side of things and also because it was a subtle reference to this comic from last year.

The main art changes are the fact that a mirror looks very different in one scene and the fact that, in the second-to-last comic, Harvey imagines the villain carrying a gun.

The main dialogue change is where Derek refers to Harvey’s Jungian “Shadow“. Although this was a more technically accurate description, I had to cut it for length and pacing reasons.

Anyway, here’s the line art. As usual, you can see a larger version of each piece of line art by clicking on it.

The Line Art Preview Returns :)

Well, I hadn’t planned to make another line art preview post so soon after the last one (which appeared in late December). But, whilst sorting out the scheduling for this blog, I realised that I hadn’t scheduled an article for today.

So, although normal articles will resume tomorrow, I couldn’t exactly leave today’s article empty. As such, here’s the “work in progress” line art for a few paintings that won’t appear here until fairly early next year. Enjoy 🙂
