Who’s this PYT?

You’ll have to wait until Part 2 of Space Bastard to find out who she is and why she’s important enough to get her own spot here on the Fictory blog.

As I work out these concepts, I realize how much I enjoy playing with very simple gradients. Perhaps there’s something to that, something that will find it’s way into the art for Space Bastard Part 2.

Be sure to check out the latest page of Space Bastard Part 1: PopGun

I’ve been hard at work these cold winter days on new concept art for the upcoming space bastard chapter. Here’s Jack Molly flying through space.

Jack Molly, Going where no man has gone before

Again I’ve been playing with Gradiants. Space Bastard Part 2 will be much more colorful then part one, and I’ve been working enjoying the process of figuring that out.

Here’s a little behind the scenes look at how the Stabb Gunner workflow goes. It’s pretty much exactly like any other comic book team. I write, Courtland pencils, and I ink, color and letter. Sometimes the talented Ashley McCague is kind enough to drop in some base colors for us. Along the way, Courtland and I work out any problems the final page might sprout up as we move to a finish. When we’re ready to actually print these bad boys, we’re going to take a pass at every page, and change anything that stills bugs us after it’s in the bag! Check out the finished page HERE, or just start from the BEGINNING!

Space Bastard Kick-off Art

Now that the art for Part 1: PopGun is all but published, I took some time out to create a few jump-start art to get the wheels turning for Jack’s journey in the coming chapters. It should be no surprise that with a title like Space Bastard, Our bastard will indeed find his way into outer-space. Here’s the first of a few jump-start drawings leading up to the second chapter of Space Bastard. Space Bastard - Kick-off Line ArtI’ve always been a fan of how artists like Paul Pope, Mike Mignola and Victor Moscoso. I wanted to do something with a limited palette. The colors were quick. what Joe refers to as scratch drawings from many of our childhoods, but I refer to as (it’s 3 am, I want to have some fun) what can I do with stock gradients in CS3.
