I'm going to start putting all the comics up at my main website. It has better gallery and image functionality, whereas blogger is quite awkward to navigate.
This is the home page, where I'll be posting pages as and when I do them.
And this is the gallery page. They're all in here, and are going to be as I do them.
This just makes more sense really.

So here it is, the final page of chapter 1 of Jim and Lucien.
Bit of a cliffhanger. Don't worry, I'm sure the resolution is mundane and uninspiring.
I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to jump straight into part 2 next week or do something else so as to break it up a bit.
Also, I've started tagging all the jim and luc posts so you can just click the tag and it'll show you all of the pages so far so you can read straight through. I'm probably going to sort out some sort of download with them all compiled though, for my benefit more than anything probably.

I think I ought to say up front, that I imagined each chapter/part or 'issue' as it were of Jim and Lucien would be about 16 pages long.
16 pages gives you enough room to tell a story, but provides a challenge of economy. Can you tell a complete story in 16 pages? Yes of course, but it isn't easy. Now I'm trying to tell a complete story in this time frame, just pieces of one, but it's a fun challenge trying to set it up so that individual parts stand out as being 'about something/someone in particular' but work together as a whole.
I only say this, because at page 13, I'm nearing the end of the first part of Jim and Luc and I didn't want to spring what might seem initially like arbitary divisions on people.
Anyway. Enjoy. I guess.

Alright, I think this page isn't too bad. At least, it looks good as a thumbnail.
A little commentary, in case I don't get a chance to put it in, I reckon Lucien's eating what he would call a 'Millennial Ploughman's'. That's Frazzles and Dairylea spread.

I drew this on my new monitor. But because it's sort of at the side of me rather than directly in front of me, drawing on it seemed kind of awkward.
This page isnt too bad, but no shading as it took too long to get the lines down.

I'm retroactively calling the Christmas Cartoon as PvC 16. This might have something to do with a photoshop document called 'comic16' already having existed on my harddrive and confused me into thinking I was one ahead.
I didn't do the shading effect this week. Frankly it was killing me. This week however, you will understand how it makes all the difference to the lineart.
