NOBLE FAILURE #8 (August 2007)
(Scroll to the bottom to view the art.)
(This probably should have been posted prior to my September attempt. Ran into some problems trying to layout the pages and get them converted to decent sized PDFs. Problems solved, thanks to the wife. See below.)
The August comic is — surprise, surprise! — another noble failure. I’m not even sure if they can be considered noble any more, just failures.
Don’t get me wrong: the stories are getting better and art is a little more serviceable, but I’m barely paying attention to the time requirements any more.
When I start these things, it’s with the full intent to do all 24 pages in 24 hours. But man, it’s getting rougher, even with all the household/baby wrangling support from the lovely and talented Stephanie. By hour 18, I’m pretty well fried.
I’m glad I’m doing this little project, and pleasantly surprised with most of the results. I’ll tell you what, though. I’m already looking forward to January.
The August issue started great: ten pages in eight hours. How awesome is that? Frickin’ awesome, if you ask me. Then things started to fall apart: Distractions, my perfection obsession — the usual.
I did get all 24 pages penciled in 24 hours, but then went back and did the inks.
Due to layout changes in the two stories, this issue is split into separate files.
Read. Enjoy. Comment.
