Pages 7, 8, 9 of Ronin Dogs. It's going well. Trouble is now I'm already starting to think about the next 'chapter'. I really can't wait to finish and get started on the next adventure. Got some good jokes (well, crap jokes, but y'know that's my style). But, I'm trying not to rush.

Here's pages 4, 5 and 6 of Ronin Dogs. I'm up to page 13 penciled and inked now. I really just wanna get this finished. My confidence in it is waining so I really wanna finish.
I also got big plans for the next part. I'm gonna try the next part in landscape. I think this will suit my style a lot more. I love big wide screen shots (like a film) so I think it'll look really cool. I also think I'll be more likely to do big one page panels, which I never feel confident about doing in portrait.
Also, the more I think about what I want to do with Ronin Dogs the more I think that it would suit a web based comic. I kind of see it as like an ongoing story rather than episodes. They're episodes right now as I figure shit out and learn more. I think I could do like 2 pages coloured a week. I think that would be good. Anyway it's all just ideas at the moment. Don't wanna get too ahead of myself.

So, here's the first three pages of my comic Ronin Dogs. Ronin Dogs was a comic I came up with when I was like sixteen or something. It's basically about these two characters (Derek and Jen) who go about getting into trouble and having fun adventures in space. I drew quite a few comics about them years ago and I've always liked them, so decided to bring them back to life.
Havn't drawn any actual comic pages for a long time so this is me playing catch up. Ronin Dogs for me is all about having fun and learning. And I'm learning shit loads as I go. I already just wanna finish this and get on with the next story. But I gotta be patient and keep with this making it a consistent piece. One of the most difficult things with comics (for me at least) is keeping consistency in the art. It's easy to get lazy and rush the closer you get to the end. Slow and steady wins the race. Although I've only got about a month to finish this and get it printed for the Bristol expo. Not sure if I'll make it but it won't be the end of the world if I don't.
So, there you go. Hope you like. More soon.
