Time Lapse: Introducing Frog!

Check out this time lapse video showing the introduction of Frog, Tobias's rough speaking, heavy drinking farm hand who he finds on the streets of Kissimmee.

This is my first time playing with time lapse function on my iPhone, but I think it helps show you the progress a bit more efficiently, for those who don't want to watch the progress over a course of hours.

We're in full gear again, so there'll be a lot more material coming your way, including a concept art piece displaying the MacIvey Farm layout!

Vlog #2: Process Videos

Hello y'all!

Happy March! Join me today as I take you through the process of creating a finished page from beginning to end. This two part video will show you how I start off with a simple pencil layout and finish with a far more detailed and dynamic ink job.

And to demonstrate this, I saved a very special point in the book, the introduction of the MacIvey Clan's first adopted member, Skillit. Skillit is an integral part of A Land Remembered, especially for it's social development in the story. Skillit is a slave-turned-free man who after a series of misfortunate events he stumbles across the good fortune of being welcomed to join the MacIvey family and take part in the cattle herding business.

I hope you find this behind-the-scenes walk-thru of my art process interesting. We're 45 pages in, but we still have over 200 more to go! The rides just getting started!
