The Panther 1 by JonniO
The Panther 1
The Daily Doodle #298.

I recently got myself a copy of 'Manga Studio 5', which I've been learning how to use. It's absolutely fab(!), especially the pen engine which is makes using the pen tools so much smoother and user friendly than other much more expensive image editing software that I could mention. You can use it for the whole process of comic creation if you choose to, but personally I'll still be penciling traditionally for now. I'd recommend anyone interested in drawing comics to give it a go :) I'm still on that learning curve, but here's my first go. The finished version of this illo will be on the next Doodle...

The Daily Doodle #296.

This story is certainly showing us one of those days where everything that can go wrong will go wrong. It's pushing poor Graham past his limit. Though he's not psychotic, so this story isn't going to turn into Michael Douglas in 'Falling Down'. I think of him more like Basil in the 'Fawlty Towers' episode where he gives the car a 'damn good thrashing!'. Having abandoned his car to the Friday rush hour traffic jam and catching the tube on this page, Graham will probably go back for the car the next morning.

Have a great weekend... we'll be back on Monday for the last page of this story.

The Daily Doodle #295.

Poor Graham is having a very bad day... I've always loved the idea of drawing atmospheric rain and this story was an early attempt at depicting that to aid the drama and mood of the strip. Though crude compared to my up to date rain pictures (check out the previous rain Doodles) it still stands up quite well. This particular style of illustrating rain was inspired by a 'Tank Girl' splash/pin-up page by Jaimie Hewlett in 'Deadline' (TG's original home, a UK newstand comic the ran from 1988 to 1995) donkeys years ago. TG stands grinning at the audience in ferocious, atmospheric storm, tank silhouetted in the background and the rain is full of colour, it was fantastic.

'Victim of Circumstance' page four.

I've re-lettered the whole strip, because of the colour bleeding and smudging into the balloons as mentioned previously, and to make the story flow better by using a comic font rather than my old hand lettered balloons. I've also lightened the colour on this page which did look a bit murky and muddy in the exterior shots.

YES! At last, the preview issue of my new Fred Fortune comic book, the tentatively titled 'The Incredibly Stupid Misadventures of Fred Fortune and is chums!!' is on sale now at Indy Planet. It will also be available from Comixpress very soon.

It's 28 lovely pages wrapped up behind color covers and features two main stories, a couple of one-pagers and character profiles.

The futuristic mayhem, laughs and flying cars aplenty will be the perfect post script for the festive season when you're stuffed with booze and turkey, so why not treat yourself to an extra pressie? And it's only $4.50, just follow the link below to order your copy.
