I'm testing out how I want this story to look. For the final work, I'm going to scan all the images and add text on the computer. I know I said I want it to be entirely by hand, but I want the text to look professional and have sort of a Nausicaä Vibe. All of the inking and coloring will be by hand.
I was also looking through Little Karl last night and realized how proud I am of that story. The whole project was a lot of work, but now I know that I have the stamina to produce a fully finished story.
In many ways, I feel that writing and illustrating poetic stories is the next frontier for me. I'm so inspired by the watercolor manga of Hayao Miyazaki and I want to illustrate my own worlds like he does.
