Since I had part of the day off from work because of holiday, I finally had the chance to finish this. The file turned out to be about 1.5 GB, but it was worth the heart attack every time my computer stalled for a split second. In the end I changed around quite a few things and added more graphic elements than I originally had planned. I really needed the practice and I enjoyed the process.

Some more progress I made last Sunday. If I have time, I’ll work on it a bit more this weekend.
Taking a break from animation to get some much needed painting practice in over the weekend. It got a little out of hand and I ended up working out a new cover for the second half of the series. Hopefully I can work on it more this Saturday.
In the mean time…please enjoy the latest update!
WIP for next chapter cover
Another page down! After about a few hundred pages I think I’m finally getting used to digital inking
This link was being passed around on the Women in Animation eletter. A bittersweet story of how Laika studios was born through back office dealings, poor management and unabashed nepotism. I had no idea that “claymation” is a legally trademarked term.
Another update! You can read the latest chapter here:
Bento Comics 2nd SketchJam- My god, it’s full of thumbnails now up on the Bento Comics channel on youtube!
TOPICS THIS WEEK:
1. Hello and welcome. It took us 7 minutes to say hello?? Where’s my ax…
2. [7.0] Scrivner for Comics- that little thing called ‘plot’. Dee demos working the story with the excellent writing software package, Scrivner, using Antony Johnson’s also very excellent templates for comics.
3. [39.0] Putting the script into thumbnails: Myung gives us a tour of the next chapter of Simon Sues (all 128 pages of it) as thumbnail sketches in MangaStudio. We talk about getting your script into thumbs, and using the thumbnail stage effectively to work your pacing and staging.
4. [1.08.00] Choreographing fight scenes. We take a look at one of Simon Sues' amazing fight scenes as Myung explains how she gets the action into thumbnails. A bit about camera angles and staging for the drama and flow.
Get ready for a whole new arc starting next week! The race has begun!
Some more WIPs! Isaac’s having a really, really bad day and Simon’s making some new allies.
I can’t believe it’s chapter 13 already! There’s only five more chapters to thumbnail out, but it’s the part of the story that’s going to require the most thought.
Doing these thumbnail scripts while I write has been helping a great deal since I can pace things out with pages and start visualizing panels and character direction early. And because it’s all very rough, it’s not a problem to move bits around or even cut things out entirely.
