Some more production art as I continue to build my buffer back over summer. I'm thinking to launch Chapter 3 Sunday September 15, though it's not set in stone, it depends entirely on how well cleanup goes for what I've roughed so far, but that should give me a comfortable amount of time. As this week's "Hiatus Package" is pretty much the last of what I can gather for production art I'll have to think of something to show ya'll next week. I'll come up with something. Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience!

Ohhh I love how different the roughs look compared to the finished works, haha.

Anyway, take your time!
Enjoy your summer break!

You deserve it. x]

Thanks! I usually hate showing rough work, but it helps showing off the finished product right next to it haha

I have a few production questions for ya, do you have a set of stock backgrounds or do you make them as you go, and maybe save for later if needed?

Do you build the background first and fit the characters into it, or is it the other way around?

Ive been doing the characters first, and building around them, but now I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better going the other way on that...

At the end of the day, does it matter?

I have no stock backgrounds they are created on a per-scene basis, but I have a large library of stock references I use for ideas and composing.

I don't really have a method of doing characters first or backgrounds first, it depends on the scene really. For example the one of Vinnie and Galvin sitting and talking in the truck I did the characters first because the background is extremely simple and the characters are the focus. For when the boys were in the music store I did the background first because it was the focus and they needed to move around inside of it.

No I don't think it matters at the end of the day, artists find methods that work best for them.

(The black makes it much easier to read, thanks! :3)
I think my favorite part out of all of this is the obvious change in emotions Vinnie has in rough vs final stages. There's one where he looks frustrated in an angry way in the rough sketch and in the final it seems you settled on a more nervous frustration. It almost seems like you were deciding on big parts of his personality while you were in the process of drawing!
Also, I still can't get over how awesome all those band posters look and I'll be looking forward to more audience participation. (:

Maybe next week, if you wanted, you could touch a little on how the animation works! Not asking you to give away your secrets but I can't deny that I'm curious as to how you made all of this work so professionally.

You are one talented guy and I'll miss your updates, though of course you deserve to take a break. Seconds on whether you could provide some info about the animation production here - I'm starting to dabble with some myself and I wish my end result were half as streamlined as yours.

Alot of the animation is handled differently, if you or Marlee-The-Creator have something specific you'd like more insight on I can certainly do that next week.

will there be any moment where it will show fridge with a little less clothing to see his fully exposed glowing random images?
Notos 19th Aug 2013, 3:18 PM edit delete reply
Maybe at some point if its story appropriate. This comic certainly wont shy away from fanservice.

You can never have enough Fridge.

Maybe, you'd have to be very patient, he's a nonstop chatterbox.

I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of suggestions people came up with!

Why, oh, why, i stumbled on this masterpiece that late? And just when it's summer break...

Anyway, I love the idea. And I love Vinnie's shyness :3 From now, you can count me as your new regular reader! :D
