Getting Back in the Saddle

 Hello Readers.  

Wasn't it nice to take a bit of a break and over the holidays?! What?  It was too long since the last installment of Flight of Fancy?  Awww, your attention to this blog is touching but, sheesh, can't a guy take a break?  It's not like I'm going to forget how to draw these characters or loose my place in the story! We all know she's going to win a million bucks and then have to pay off her attacker. 

Whatdya mean that makes no sense?!

Ok, ok, here's a couple pages! Don't say I never gave you nuthin'!

Page 92


Page 93

I think the drawings on these pages are nice, but man, as you can see I had to do some cut and paste to put the panels and word bubbles in the right places. Everything was arranged about right, but I left space between panes that had to be trimmed.  Page 93's panels at the top are still a bit off but what's it matter, right?

The characters are drawn quite well.  In that last panel on 92 you'll see Dave's design has changed a bit - he looks older and bit fatter and like he can't run very well anymore. Fancy looks perfect in the panel above.

I like the wee bit of comedy in page 93.  I spend a while trying to figure out how the jet would open and how to show it.  In the end I figured I was spending too much time on something the audience wouldn't really need or care to know about.  Still, the drawings are nice.

I hope you like it. It has been a while.  Gotta admit, I have lost a bit of focus, direction and energy, but I'll try to keep at it and WILL TRY to finish.

  1. Don't ever do that to me again! Don't leave me hanging like that! Forget holidays, forget illness or workload -- I need me my Fancy!

    But she was worth waiting for. Good, solid pages. Fancy running was really well done. Sorry but I can't really comment on the rest of the art because I'm not paying any attention to it. I'm breezing over the panels, wanting to know what happens next -- and that's the best compliment a storyteller could ever get!

    "Sure as hell I'm going to try"-- I love it!
