Man

I do not do well in the humidity.

For the sake of uniformity, I was going to stick to my previous method of drawing each panel, then dropping them into a big document later… but I reached a point where I just couldn’t tolerate doing it that way anymore.

If you read my About page, you’ll know my original intention for the comic’s style was a Storyboard format, where each panel is a uniform size.  That quickly proved a terrible way of making comics, so I started cropping the images, and from there it was really quite pointless to continue with a Storyboard format at all.  I planned to stick with it until Episode 2, when it would be a little less jarring to have a sudden shift in presentation style, but I just couldn’t wait that long.  Still, once Ep.2 begins, I’m going to go with more traditional pages of a uniform size, so my webcomic will actually look like a webcomic.

Also I’ll use thinner ink lines, yikes.  That first panel is so atrocious, I’ll probably do it over again after I finish writing this.

At some point in the future, I’ll come back to this first episode of The Ironclad Man and pretty much re-do the entire thing.  The whole episode was basically one big experiment, as I believe I explained before, for me to mess around with.  I appreciate you guys for bearing with me on that, and I promise that once we’re out of Episode 1, everything’s gonna be much more stable artistically.

In other news, for those of you who don’t regularly check my Tumblr, I posted a little preview of Episode 2’s cover art there.  It’s already a bit outdated, as I’ve revised the design quite a bit… but it’s still a little somethin’.
