I'm not sure how much to blog on the comic I'm working on. I don't want to give the story away, before we (hopefully) publish it. But I figure posting a rough draft of the first page won't hurt, especially if I don't elaborate on the story.

I did a pencil sketch full size on bristol board. I can only get so far with thumbnail sketches. Then I scanned it and filled in the black spaces with black in photoshop. I'd been referring to Sin City comics a lot recently, and the stark black and whites are really striking in Frank Miller's artwork. This comic, being a rather dark story so far, I thought was similarly suited to high contrast images.

This image was sent to my collaborators, the writers, who emailed back their suggestions. So actually, the actual page will look different from what you see here.
