    My biggest challenge is the tendency to second guess myself. I deal with a fair share of anxiety and constantly worry about doing something wrong or making something that won’t be up to snuff.

    I tend to create this idea that I’m letting something down if I do anything less than perfect, despite the fact that I know that I’m imperfect to begin with. This tends to lead to a cycle of self-doubt, which in turn leads me to freeze at the writing table.

    That said, the best thing to do for me in this situation is to just go ahead and do it, as it is much easier to refine than it is to stare at an empty page.

    In my case, this usually extends to my writing then my thumbnails and then my pencils.

    By the inking stage, I’m more or less committed to things and I can actually relax a bit.

    Also James, I do know of Fate/Stay Night and its myriad complexities, so yeah, you had quite a lot to dig into on that tangent.

    I love the shapes on these critters. They have a charming, easy to read nature to them that’s very Secret of NIMH.

    Strange. It seems my reply from earlier was deleted or something. I know I posted it ,because I’m seeing replies, but the post itself has vanished.

    Once again, I’m Bolu Oriowo.

    I work primarily as an artist, though working on my own projects has led me to wear the hats of writer, colorist, letterer and editor.

    I used to greatly prefer superhero stories, though nowadays I greatly enjoy adventure stories with sci-fi, fantasy or horror twists. Anything with that allows a level of dynamic action, emotion and expression.

    I’m hoping to get my next graphic novella written and for some work of mine to be published in the next couple of years, in addition to finishing my animation degree.

    One story that I like to link is my first graphic novel, Letters from Midia. It is something of a love story told primarily through fight scenes, as I like to describe it. It has elements of Jack Kirby style action, Samurai Jack thrills, Legend of Zelda video game logic and worldbuilding, and a hefty dose of Moebius influenced silent comic storytelling.

    It can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Letters-Midia-Boluwatife-Oriowo-ebook/dp/B07XTLY3KZ

    The colors do wonders for establishing the mood of your story’s surreal landscape, @ottobot. Excellent work, all around.

    Hope I’m not too late with the lettered version of my comic! Here’s the completed “Kip Kerstromm: Man of Tomorrow’s Yesterday…From The Future In “The Battle of the Belly of the Beast.”

    Updated the page to focus on the beam charging, no energy tail. Thanks for the feedback, @philipspace and @BuddyScalera!

    Thank you, @philipspace.
    Stylistically, I was going for sort of a motion blur/trail effect that follows the motion of the ray-gun as he raises it up for the final shot. Almost as if he started charging it before he aimed it. A similar effect happens when he springs into action on page 3.
    That said, if it’s reading like it’s leaking, it may be a sign that I need to revisit that visual!

    The colors for Battle of the Belly of the Beast. I thought that a flat color scheme would work best with the Saturday Morning Cartoon style and Hard Blacks that I used throughout the narrative.

    @mikedoestheart, I really like the level of charm and detail in your pages, thus far. You’ve certainly captured something of a dark whimsy with this sequence.

    @philipspace, excellent work. I’m always a fan of strong, pulpy adventure books, and that’s a tone you convey well.

    Here are the “finished” digital pencils for my story. I typically avoid putting my heavy shadows in at this point, and save it for my inking stage. It’s something I picked up from mangaka, some years back. Essentially, it helps you focus on the quality of the lineart itself before diving into the fancy stuff.

    Here are my roughs for my short, “Battle of the Belly of the Beast.” I draw digitally, so the characters and backgrounds are on different layers. As such, it looks like I draw “through” my characters.

    Coming in a little late with these. Had them done earlier, but never got around to posting them. These are the rough breakdowns for my story. I tend to sketch roughly, seeing as I’m the writer and illustrator of this story. I also usually split up 8.5/11 sheets of paper down the middle in order to keep page flips in mind.

    One last major design. The story calls for a cute McGuffin in danger. The Prince of the Sofservian empire. Decided to do a bit of color work for this one too.

    Thanks, Kris. I’m really kicking myself for not being able to join in the anthology too. Looks like everyone really brought their A-game!

    Free time is always in question with school kicking back up soon, but I’ll check the forecast of my semester and get back to you.

    Thanks! I’ll be certain to share it once it’s finished. Still figuring out what coloring approach I’ll ultimately take with this.

    @evanscale,
    I quite like your color palette for this. Very warm colors that lead into the colder, more tense atmosphere of pages 4 & 5. It tells a nice story.

    Thank you very much! I quite like the gritty feel that you’ve captured in your inks.
