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!
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! 👩⚔🔮🌃
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
Almost done with the lettering for issue 3. It's somewhat sobering to look at a script that I wrote two years ago and realise how naive I was. Eight panels per page? About as much text as a phone book? I've definitely learned a thing or two about the value of brevity since then.
https://youtu.be/_8R59Ai7xiM Added a new video to the CMC YouTube channel today. What goes into colouring a page of "Corinne Morgan, Corbie"? In this half hour session I'll show you what my process is, and discuss other methods I've tried that didn't work for me.
Still trying to find my footing with YouTube - the plan is to do more, shorter vids over the next few weeks.
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.
Taking the first tentative steps into finding ways to monetize my comic work. Corbie will remain free to read on readcmc.com, but if you'd like to make a contribution to help support it, you can now do so via Ko-fi. Donations of all sizes will be greatly appreciated! https://ko-fi.com/corbie #comics #webcomics #readcmc #digitalcomics #comicbooks
Back view of Corbie's character design from pre-issue 1. When everyone received updated model sheets prior to issue 2, only a few minor tweaks were made compared to what you see here, most notably that the "backpack" element of the armor was switched from blue to red. #comics #readcmc #mastoart #comicbooks #art
Two of my favorite panels from Corbie issue 2. By this point I felt like everything was starting to gel, and I was getting to grips with how the characters and pages of the comic should look. I also really loved seeing the chemistry between Morrigan and Corinne starting to develop. #readcmc #comics #comicbooks #mastoart
"Corinne Morgan, Corbie" issue 2 is here! Really proud of this one - I feel CMC has started to find its feet now visually, and this issue has more of the "Corinne as HSP" theme that, to me, is the heart of the series.
(BTW, I recommend enjoying Corbie in PDF or CBZ format as it was originally intended! It's a better reading experience and includes the bonus Birdy Rappinghood column.).
Here's a small portion of the pencil art for the cover of "Corinne Morgan, Corbie" issue 2. This ended up being the foundation for a digital painting that proved really challenging to get right! "My Teenage Revenge Power Fantasy" will be available online for free on December 22. #readcmc #comicbook #comicbooks
Profile art for Morrigan, one of the main characters in "Corinne Morgan, Corbie". Colouring for MG's hair and dress is done by laying down a blue base that ends up forming the highlights; a dark grey or blue overlay is then applied on top of that. A timelapse vid of the cleanup / colouring of this is up now on the Corbie Instagram page. #comicbooks #comics #readcmc
