Page 116 Finished and Page 117 of Zheph Skyre on the Way

Page 117 of Zheph Skyre is in black and white right now with no text, but hopefully it should not too long to finish.

Meanwhile, page 116 of Zheph Skyre is done! Man there was a ton of detail on this page!

I wanted to show a variety of unknown characters that live in Corthon, and I wanted to show that their reactions to the dragon's roar. If the dragon's breath looks a little weird, there is an explanation why I made it like that way.

Pag 116 is not Yet Finished

Page 116 of my web comic Zheph Skyre is not yet finished. It is just in black and white so far. Apparently I put a lot of detail in it, and it is taking more time to complete. It should not take too long.

Page 115 of Zheph nSkyre Complete!

 I finished page 115 of my web comic Zheph Skyre. I had to fill in more color, add the action lines, and put in the text of the dragons roar.

Here you can see the original sketch. I wanted to work extra hard on this page because this is my preference for drawing. I decided to scan it, print it enlarged, and then ink it on an extra large sheet of paper.

Here is the finished piece. I made a few changes to the original sketch. I decided to make the armored limbs more detailed, and I had to fix the perspective of the tail. Overall, I'm very pleased with the end results.

Page 115 is Not Quite Finished

I have uploaded page 115 of my web comic Zheph Skyre, but there is still a little work I have to do on it. It should be available soon, since it is a simple page, though looks really awesome! It is the big reveal of the dragon flying towards the city.

Zheph Skyre Page 114 Complete!

I finally managed to finish coloring page 114 of Zheph Skyre! There were a few minor changes I had to make to the design of the dragon as well.

As you can see, this page is quite simple with no speech bubbles. I just wanted to show this terrifying monster flying towards Corthon.

Elio Sonsini's Art Gallery

This past Wednesday November 6th, I went to the Italian American Cultural Center to film an art gallery opening for an Italian artist named Elio Sonsini. Here is his business card:

This artist has quite a few really good pieces of artwork. It is surprising that a lot of his paintings are in acrylic and watercolor as many artists prefer oils. He prefers acrylic over oil because it works better with water.

Many of his pieces are based on areas outside of the United States.

There was also a large assortment of really good food served for everyone who attended the gallery opening. There was pizza, bacon wrapped scallops, vegetables and dip, punch with sorbet in it, and various other tastey treats.

I filmed this for WCCA TV13. I am not sure when this will be aired, but when it is, I will show it in a blog post. I still have to edit the footage.

I got an interview with the artist, and I was able to film his artwork. His gallery will be open for a short while, so check it out!

Page 113 of Zheph Skyre is Done!

I finally managed to get this page finished! It had taken a while because I have because I had been working on the next two pages as well.

Here we see a bell ringing as the flying creature approaches the city. Our heroes are confused as the bell rings as it has never done before. Vanessa has a bad feeling. We also can see some figures approaching the city wall as the knights scramble to prepare for battle. The tops of these figures look awfully familiar...
