Page 1 Colour

Change of pace today, wanted to show some colours since a lot of people seem to be responding well to them. Here's page 1 pretty much finished, just missing to odd bit of lettering. Really enjoyed colouring the first few pages, the only downside being it seems to be taking me a good 12 hrs to colour a single page. I assume I'll get a little faster as I go though.

Page 7

I've jumped ahead a few pages to number 7 here. I'm heading to Thought Bubble in Leeds next weekend, and I want to bring an action sequence with me as well as the more quiet opening sequence, hence the leap forward in time. Pages 7, 8 and 9 contain the first dino scene. I've been pencilling page 9 today and I think they're turning out pretty well. When I get back the following week I'll go back and draw the intervening pages(4, 5 + 6), and that will be the preview section of the book finished, inks-wise. After that I'll be trying out some colours and hopefully really bringing this thing to life.

I have the first cover drawn too, I'll stick that up very soon.

This page took bloody ages, about 3 days in full. Just because of all the dense jungle more than anything, I guess. Needed to solidly establish that the squad have moved deeper into the rainforest, and get some nice, thick atmosphere and tension going.

Page 1

Here's the first page. I had to re-draw the first couple of panels, my initial attempt was pretty awful due to so much time away from the board. But happy enough with this attempt, looks a bit closer to the version in my mind's eye.
