A journey to the Underworld begins... and becomes PUNCHING TIME.
That is four things to post on Patreon, which is nice, because I have already posted four things to Patreon this month and I try to aim for eight posts, as that typically results in around a thousand bucks from my supporters, which mostly covers bills.
Ten days left in the month. Eight if I have a weekend. That's how long I've got to finish page 7a of this (two panels), as well as 7b, 8, and possibly 7c. And hack it up to fit nicely on a tiny phone screen.
There are more pages - 13 total originally, plus probably whatever I add to give the second half of the fight more room - but that's for next month.
Comics are weird work.
currently going with "The Sins Of Chlöe Franklin", this may change
I procrastinated by roughing out page 5a, full of muzzy images of our heroines getting dragged unconscious from the rave to the Ritual Room, since I have decided to see if I can expand the beginning of this a bit to end on a cliffhanger and still meet the requirements of the Webtoons competition. Also I really wanted to get a Mignola-style drawing of a statue of Ereshkigal in there and now I have.
I wonder if there will be anyone doing the equivalent of Tundra Publishing in comics again. Kevin Eastman spent like 3y handing out like $12mil of his Turtles money to his comics buddies so they could take a year or two off the DC/Marvel grind and work on passion projects. Also to a lot of his relatives and local friends so they could have a pretty easy day job, too.
I think it's time to start posting pages of this silly thing. I need to finish converting pages 2-3 to color, then I can post up to page 5. Patrons can see the whole thing as it currently stands: https://www.patreon.com/posts/chloes-evening-5-68974189
