A raging work-in-progress panel of Corbie - one angry bird! I've still got some work to do on the draft pages before I can move on to the finalized pencil art. Fortunately the remaining pages in this issue take place indoors and don't require me to lovingly render any more woodland areas or grassy fields...
Original version of a panel from "Corbie" issue 1 versus the new art. All of the main cast is being redrawn to be more on-model, the early pages are getting recoloured, and a new cover and bonus material is being added.
I really wasn't sure about this project as it requires so much time that could be spent working on new content, but now I'm back on-board. I'm enjoying getting to fix some of the really glaring panels from the early pages that always bugged me!
Indie artist shilling my wares
Launched a new Corbie store on Teespring if anyone's interested. There are several designs up already as shirts and sweaters, including the "(Don't) Ask Me About My Introvert Agenda" one Corinne is sporting here. Plus there are posters, prints and phone cases.

A small teaser of the full Art Nouveau / Alphonse Mucha style cover for the expanded and remastered version of Corbie issue 1. I'm gradually going through the first issue of CMC and making changes for a future release that you'll be able to own in both digital and print formats. Be sure to follow the various Corbie accounts across IG, YouTube and Twitch to watch it all take shape on the livestreams! 👩⚔🔮🌃
Streaming schedule for the upcoming week. My current plan is to get the cover for the remastered version of issue 1 finished, then get started on redoing some of the original artwork. All times are subject to change - I'll keep you posted about any breaking amendments...
This #art was originally created for World #Introvert Day, but only now did I get around to producing this giant-sized poster. A hi-res digital version has now been made available to all donors on Ko-Fi for anyone who'd like to create their own print versions at any size. Further goodies will also be made available to those who contribute, so stay tuned!
It's here! The third issue of "Corinne Morgan, Corbie", The Long Way Back Home, is now available for download and online reading. This one has been a huge undertaking but the end result is (IMHO) the biggest and best issue of CMC so far. I hope you'll enjoy the first Corbiefest of 2019! http://readcmc.com/comics/ #ReadCMC #Comics #Webcomics #ComicBooks
Playing with my new camera setup in OBS Studio. (Hot dang! No more dangling my phone above my desk with hairbands.)
Trying to gauge if there'd be any interest in comic making livestreams. If me and my frail little Scottish lamb voice talking about funny books while I draw them sounds appealing, let me know.
The deed is done.
The last page of rough pencils for Corbie issue 3 was finished late last night. Overall I'm pretty happy with the way it's shaping up. There are a few things I'd like to go back and change, but there's still plenty of scope for making tweaks before this project is done.
Work on the clean pencil art starts today!
I've been working on the rough art for Corbie issue 3 for a few weeks now, and the finish line is almost in sight. Another couple of pages remaining, then it's on to the next step in the production process.
Some of my favourite panels to draw are the ones with Corbie in action or flying around, as well as anything where characters break through the boundaries of the comic panels. Happily, these last few pages check all these boxes.
I was feeling blue last night and struggling to push through with pencilling the next page of the comic, so I decided to switch things up and create some new chalkboard art instead.
Some days I grapple with self-doubt, but I always believe in Corbie, and that having a superhero for introverts / HSPs to identify with is a good "caws". If you'd like to help support it, you can donate to the CMC Ko-Fi at https://ko-fi.com/corbie
Highlights from today's Corbie pencilling sessions. Rough art is always subject to change, especially when I drop the ball like I did with the second image. Corinne had removed her helmet during this scene and I accidentally drew her with it on, so now I need to partially redraw it.
Welcome to the wonderful world of sequential art, where you get to manage not just props and wardrobe, but continuity too 😅
Found this pen doodle of Corinne from... I'm gonna say about 2012... while rummaging around in my desk drawer.
Not super different to how she looks today. The most notable change is that she used to have braided strands of hair above her temples that met up around the back of her head. That element didn't last long as her design was cleaned up / simplified for comics.
