Godiva Fight
Doing something with my Mighty Godiva character idea. She's fighting her arch enemy Daria Dane, who has created a mega steroid that's turned her into a super muscled powerhouse and she thinks she can finally overpower Godiva.

Okay, I have rough sketches for pages 12-15 done.
I have page 11 of "Up the River" done, and I've been sketching out page 12 this afternoon. I am thinking I should go ahead and sketch out a few more pages to try and stay ahead better.

And the story takes a bit of a turn.

Isabel Mary Wells
A character idea I did for the Comic Fury annual 30 days of characters challenge. H.G. Wells has been turned into a time traveler a number of times, so why not his wife?

Isabel Mary Wells is the cousin, and later the wife, of famed writer, inventor, and time traveler H.G. Wells. What most people don't realize is that she is an important contributor to her husband's invention of the time machine.It's her brilliant understanding of physics that made the invention possible.

While she took her husband's rise to fame and her disappearing to the sidelines with an appropriately British stiff upper lip. She found it completely intolerable that he was carrying on affairs with women in other time periods. When the opportunity presented itself, she left him, taking the time machine and wandering through histroy.

Page 11 of "Up the River" is done and queued up. There is a bit of plot development in the next few pages.
Remember my kludged up plumbing project?
I thought the whole run of pipe was some weird size, thus my wacky (but ultimately ineffective) attempt at joinery. It turns out I went through all that trouble for nothing. That one piece I was comparing off of was some kind of defect or has swollen over time. When I checked some of the pipe further down the line it was standard 1/2 inch pipe, and all it took was a couple Sharkbite connectors and some new copper pipe and everything is dandy again.
Somewhere All Alone in the Night 005
Babylon 5/ Doctor Who Crossover
Page 5

NEXT | PREV | FIRST

I've had this drawn for a while, but just recently finished the coloring. For this page I actually traced off of some images of Jerry Doyle for Garibaldi's scenes. I'm not sure if it worked as well as I had hoped.

I'm trying to present the story from a Babylon 5 perspective, specifically the first season with all it's unexplained mysteries. The War Doctor wandering about at that point seems appropriate.

Maravilhosa
I decided to do another version of the Homem-Grilo Wonder Woman parody Maravilhosa ("Marvelous" in Portuguese.)

Up the River Page 07


I do like hinting about Nula and the Commissioner's past, such as this unspoken event in '74. There may be a flashback later on in the story (I haven't quite made up my mind about it)

3 Poses
I just finished up my contributions for the  Comic Fury Halloween Crossover Exchange. I'll be continuing the story I started in the Valentine's Day Exchange, and there will be another big group image like Valentine's.  These three poses of Gwenna are actually part of my contribution.

The organizer has decided to do something ambitious along with the usual contributions, they have a collaboration comic planed out. Everyone contributes a few poses of their character  according to the scene they wrote out, and they are stitching it together into a story. I honestly have no idea what the story is going to look like, beyond that it's night and Gwenna is talking to another person.

Up the River 006
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Up the River Page 06


Originally, I wrote this page with a different explanation for why Lady Catherine was absent. When I put together the Jenny Everywhere day page at the last minute, it required me to change this page.

The original conversation was about Nula's unexpected adventure with golden age character Kid Eternity. It's a story I do have a few pages drawn for, but I'm still on the fence about finishing it.

Shower
So I ran across some tech gadget article that was hawking this shower curtain with pockets for your phone and tablet. The product struck me as silly, but I did find their image of the girl posing to her internet audience amusing.

I'm in the process of switching fonts. My go-to font for lettering has been Blambot's ACME Secret Agent (which I used on this page) though on some more recent pages I changed over to Unmasked BB, which I also used when I redid the lettering on the previous page. In general, I'm looking for a font that I can use at a smaller size, but will still have some decent clarity.
Loading...
River
The panel of the boat traveling up the river on page 3 of the current story actually started out as splash page for a different story that I have more or less abandoned. I liked the image enough I wanted to show it off all on it's own.
Loading...
Sentinel
I had this idea for a very Superman like hero, The Sentinel.  He's very Silver Age Superman, he has a giant tower at the South Pole and does the whole Truth, Justice and the American Way thing quite unironically.

I have some ideas for incorporating him into Kaza and Gwenna's life, it might be the subject of my next storyline, once I finish "Up the River"

Up the River 004

Up the River Page 04


I did reuse the image of Captain Noranga's boat from page one of The Phantom Ape for the first panel here. Though I did just traced over it in GIMP. Since my original image was hand inked, it had rather unsteady linework. Working fully digitally has made that less of a problem.

UPDATE: Fixed some typos and switched fonts to try and make it more legible.

Up the River 003
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Up the River Page 03


Now the story fast forwards a bit, and Kaza and Gwenna are on a boat. This is the same boat and crew featured in the beginning of The Phantom Ape.

Zamunda was the name of the fictional African kingdom from Eddie Murphy's Coming to America. The country Kaza and Gwenna live in is called Buranda.  I decided it was high time to establish some more firm geography for my world beyond "the jungle."

With the larger number of panels in today's page, I ended up shrinking the text a bit smaller. I was wondering if anyone was having any trouble reading it?
Up the River 02.5 - Jenny Everywhere Day Special.
Kaza's Mate Gwenna
Up the River Page 02.5 Jenny Everywhere Day Special


This is a bit of a last minute thing. I had forgotten all about Jenny Everywhere Day this year until some users here started talking about it. I ended up putting this page together over the weekend, and decided to use it to help explain away one little detail I overlooked.

It's a minor spoiler, but later on in the story, Nula does play a role. Since I didn't include her in the nightclub scene, I had a scene on a later page where she and the Commissioner talk about where she was. It turned into another case of me telling but not showing, which I really should avoid doing in a visual medium like this. So instead we get Nula being dropped off by the Jennys after some other naked adventure.

Plus I liked the idea of Jenny Anywhere keeping the flying car they got from Shelterville and cruising about the multiverse in it.


The characters of Jenny Everywhere and Jenny Anywhere are available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving Jenny Everywhere, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed.

I've got the first page posted here Wednesday and it will be showing up on Comic Fury early tomorrow. I have the first eight pages completed and queued up on Comic Fury. I think I'll keep posting the new pages here on the Wednesday before. As I promised, this story is a return to more straightforward jungle adventures, though I do think I'm providing something different in this story, which you'll find out as it progresses. I teased a few bits in my last journal post, but I can add a few more details, such as Wimberley having a small appearance, and I've decided Nula will be appearing as well.

With once a week updates, I have pages ready up through the middle of September. I know the story will keep running through October, but I'm not sure yet how much longer it might be.
