New Stabb Gunner Pinup ::

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

This week Courtland was busy scibbling away on some sweet Stabb Fisticuffs pinup art. I was so excited about what he was doing that I just had to throw some color in the mix. Above is the final result. I hope you enjoy looking it as much as we enjoyed creating it! And make sure to catch the most recent Stabb Gunner!

SANCTUARY ::

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Well, Courtland and I have been chugging away to get Stabb Gunner, Chapter One out to the world at large and we’re mega jazzed about the results were getting. It’s been a lot of work but it’s been worth it 100%! Our process has continued to evolve as is the case with all ongoing projects.

Which is brings me to the purpose of this post. Recently we’ve wanted to get those extreme angles with our backgrounds that are kind of signature to the book. So I decided to draw on my knowledge of film making, specifically previs. I build a very rough model of the most important set from Chapter One, the Sleeping Baby Dragon Sanctuary. Now we can fly a camera around a virtual set and make sure we get that killer angle we try so hard to find.

Original Art - Pencils by Courtland Ellis, Ink by Steve Becker and Color by Jeff McComsey

STABB GUNNER: FROM SCRIBBLES TO FINISH ::

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

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!
