Cover Boy

I'm excited to announce that pages 1 to 6 of Timmy The Killer Robot are finally, as they say, in the can.

Tommy and I decided it would be best to go with a black and white sample to the Publisher(s) we have in mind for the proposal submission. Basically, if the series gets picked up, I would find it a bit time consuming to pencil, ink, letter and color the comic all on my own. Especially with other freelance projects looming on the horizon.

Basically, if the comic gets picked up, and the Publisher insists on color, it will be much easier for Tommy and I to find a colorist to help with the coloring duties. And I already have some one in mind who would be a great addition to the already stellar team ;)

Well, the next step for the proposal package is a cover mock up which is a requirement of one specific Publisher we are submitting to. Actually, this is the first Publisher we are submitting to. And so we got to throwing ideas back and forth. After the second sketch we hit on an idea we both though cool. Bellow is the sketch. I'll post complete pencils or stage snap shots of the cover if I have the time.

'Till next post. Enjoy.
