A Few More Extra Thoughts ~ON~ Cars

So I mentioned last week that I would post more about the process of drawing a taxi cab from reference, but really, what more is there to be said? I grabbed a great angled shot from Google, copied it, and recreated, by hand, the most perfect recreation of an automobile in the history of comic strips. Pretty self-explanatory, really.

It looks so real, in fact, that I feel like I could jump in and take a ride, possibly with a chance to win cash prizes?


Sorry, any chance to feature Ben Bailey, host of Cash Cab on The Discovery Channel, is one I will always take. More on the current strip, including development sketches and a link to the production blog, in the next update! Stay tuned!

A Few Extra Thoughts ~ON~ Episode 2, Page 7

In a hopefully ongoing feature, I’ll be posting some sketches and/or links to our production blog (also serving as Ward, redesigned, from Captain Excelsiormy own personal sketch blog) that give some insight into the process behind the creation of Digital Strips Adventures.

Webcomics are different and more organic than a simple printed page because they’re alive, they’re changing, and evolving right before our very eyes. Learning the process behind that evolution is extremely exciting to me. Now, whether or not that ends up being the case for this comic remains to be seen, but I figure it’s a possibility and so I’ll post what sketches and thoughts I can.

For this page, it was my task to draw several, CE-familiar elements, including the gayest nightclub this side of The Toolbox, complemented by two proud, gay men, TJ and the Captain’s very own son, Ward!
