Touch ups and the likes
Hello everyone! For the last few months, I have been publishing the comic The secret of the Dome' on my Patreon page. I don't know exactly how old that comic is, but at least a few decades. It is also quite long, about a hundred pages. It was also made under a certain pressure. Originally, it was published in the form of six-page mini-strips, that all had to be ready at a certain release date of the magazine they were going to be apart of. And although I hate to admit it, in the later pages, it was starting to show.
The pressure was there, the story started to drag along a bit, and of course, I was so much younger and less skilled. Apart from that, it was all done in the old fashioned airbrush manner, with frisket film, scalpels, ink, etc. Frankly, for a comic page, that's tedious.
But anyway, like I said, during those last pages I had become a bit sloppy, and I felt I really couldn't present them like that anew on Patreon. So I decided to touch them up a bit. Nothing spectacular, just to make them look halfway decent.
Now, I don't know if it has anything to do with aging, but I go back to my older work more and more and in different ways. Sometimes just for inspiration. Or maybe to do this form of cleaning up, or I make a new black and white rendering of an old design in line. At other times I just make complete new versions of an old page, like on the butterfly pages.
But don't worry: I will keep making new, original work, too. Go check out the New page!
Wishing you all the best,
