that only took forever.
i have fallen out of my groove & really need to climb back in.
moses is finishing up her thoughts on motherhood and zombie fighting as she sits around a late night kitchen table with her fellow squatters in a dystopian society complete with zombies & cannibals.
i need to work on my splatter technique. i want to try using a straw. i envy ralph steadman’s skill with ink & brush. i will have to practice. also…i still don’t know how i feel about my morlockesque zombies, but….
i finally finished a new page!
it’s true. i am afraid of zombies. is moses jones afraid of zombies? we are, of course, not the same person, but we influence each other.
here are my doodles to figure out how to draw the zombies of moses jones’s world. they look a bit more like the morlocks of H.G. Wells. i couldn’t decide about hair. or clothes. they ended up with neither. some hair, which didn’t end up looking like hair. they may evolve from here. drawings tend to do that. we’ll see.
so i didn’t get any pages done last night. i was super tired & decided to have a fight with the ex who was messing up my zen. i need my zen to create. maybe i should get a charm or sumptin to protect me from bad ex chi.
plus my minions are ganging up on me.
tonight…tonight the pages will be tackled.
i have been super busy with the last few weeks of school. i will continue to be busy until may 7th when my last papers/stories are due. however, i took a break last night to do this page.
my zombies look more like morlocks or nosferatu…but there is a reason for this which we will get to eventually. i am not doing the trademark zombie for this–but altering them a bit so they work with the story better.
and they’re naked.
also, moses is using a staff instead of her usual katana. i’m not sure she has a katana at this point. maybe dusty will be the dude to train her and then give her a katana. but it is good to be versatile when fighting zombies & cannibals, so a staff it is.
i’m still having a bit of trouble with consistency of character. and i forget to be consistent with shadows as well. i put shadows some places, and not others…. maybe over the summer i will go back over all of my pages and touch up.
