What is Patreon?
Seriously, the biggest problem I’m having these days is explaining how awesome Patreon is! And yeah, I’m going to be begging people to go look at my Patreon, but again, this is the closest you’ll ever see to advertising on my site. (I loathe the idea of putting paid ads on here, which is why I’ve never gone that route, traditional though it is.)
Patreon 6-26-15 Update:
I wanted to write a quick post about where I’m at on next week’s pages of Era of Great Wonders:
The above image shows you all the blank pages I have to fill to get the next two issues of Era finished. I’m also feeling pretty confident that after I finish these pages, we can collect our first trade paperback for Era!
You can also see where I’ve worked ahead in the comic, and have penciled (and even inked) in some of the future pages. I’m pretty excited about the one two page spread that comes after next week’s updates – the one that looks like a giant turtle head in the upper left hand corner. That’s the first time we really see much more of the giant monster XXX-Tremor than just her eye, or a pattern of scales in the background.
I’m currently working on the pages before that, and have finished the first two panels:
John tends to leave the imagery of Era up to whatever it is I want to draw, and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I thought would show the division of a group of people, without showing them fighting and arguing like I did on the last couple of pages. Barbed wire fencing, trespassing signs, and armed guards were what I came up with for this scene, although I’m never sure how well it works. We’ll see when it’s all said and done, I guess.
