Who liked DOROTHY OF OZ: PREQUEL #1? Who likes original art? Who wants to own part of that?
For those who have been following my art for a bit, you'll know I'm mostly digital nowadays. My creator-owned comic, THE RAPTOR, when completed, will be entirely digital.
However, on DOROTHY OF OZ, I did what I did with my 2010 run on DOCTOR WHO - I kept specific pages partially traditional.
Lemme explain; as I work almost entirely digitally, most of my comic pages are never on paper (save for my layout roughs, which I always do on paper - but they serve mostly to let my editor know the plan for my page).
So while most pages are never drawn traditionally, and none are traditionally inked, I do pencil certain splash pages on BlueLine comic pages. They're just pencil, which I then scan, then digitally ink atop of (sometimes filling in missing info, or making corrections as I go - kinda like when I traditionally ink my own pencils).
I did this with three and a half pages on DOROTHY OF OZ: PREQUEL #1. The example above sold today (cropped to shield y'all from spoilers).
While I won't reveal what the remaining two-and-a-half pages depict, in a week or two, I'll start listing them on eBay for sale. Each is pencil on 11"x17" BlueLine comic book art board.
If you are interested in purchasing a page before they're listed on eBay for public sale, email me at info [at] oneGemini.com, and I can give you a list of what's available and the price.
There won't necessarily be four pages available every issue. For instance, issue #2 only has two traditionally penciled pages (and one of those pages already may be spoken for).
So... buy early, buy often?
Anyway, there will be original art for sale. Help a freelancer out. We don't get health insurance... so buy me groceries instead. ;)
