I just finished the initial pencil of my second Page 100 Project piece: Small Gods by Terry Pratchett. I'll be hitting a final pencil Thursday (tomorrow I'm racing my first mountain bike race of the season) and inking Friday. The biggest challenge is that I'm going to be hand-lettering the whole thing and it's chock full of dialog.
Here's a teaser. It's the third panel and I'm really happy with this as I'd never drawn a tortoise before**
See you in the future!
Listening to while posting: A red fox in our woods screaming out his/her territory bark. Sweet Enemy and I were just on our (thankfully second story) deck trying to track the critter through the woods with a MagLite. We caught glimpses of two forward-facing eyes in the trees about ten meters away, but we didn't know exactly what it was until we found this audio clip.
Last Thursday was a black bear trying to climb the deck at 3 a.m. I'd just chased some raccoons off the deck and heard the shuffling. I ran up with the light already to chase raccoons off and looked over the deck to see a big 'ol bear turn his big 'ol bear booty and take off into the woods. I was just slightly taken aback ;)
I love living here.
**It was remarkably hard to find a book on just tortoises. There were books on turtles, sure, but All I found were two pictures of tortoises in a turtle book. Sheesh. Even living for a century in some of the harshest places on Earth doesn't get you your own book?
