Behind the 7

Well, I am back. This time I thought I would show some of the behind the scenes stuff for the recently released issue 7. Before that however, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who is buying the book. Issue 7 seems to be pretty well received. I think it wraps up the first arc well and sets a cool direction for the series. If you haven't be buying the book the first trade collecting 1-7 should be out sometime soon, a great place to get started. Or tell your friends to get started:)

Anyway. With issue 7 I started skipping the small size layouts and penciling the pages right on the board. Overall I am happy with this change. It seems to be less steps in the process for me and allow me to finish pages faster. So here are a couple pencil pages. Once I get the OK on these I starting inking. In some areas where it is really loose I will tighten them up a bit before I ink them.

This issue blew me away, man! So you do all the inking by hand? That's pretty awesome, I'm sure it makes the digital colour all the easier :)

At least this way you wouldn't run out of red paint.

Looking forward to the TPB when it arrives!

JASON,
Your work is amazingly powerful. It tells the story without the script. We enjoyed it so much that we spent over $1500 on Splash page art on your work. Issue 7 was a shocker - after reading, I could not put the issue away - I did not want it to end - Kirkman and you fit together like Lee and Ditko. Looking forward to enjoying many more issues. Do you do the Mid-Ohio Con in October? Thanks
