Genevieve and I hope you enjoyed our first web strip. As you might have guessed from the content, the strip was supposed to be up the weekend of WonderCon 2009 but I felt that the humor still worked so we decided to go with it.
I felt it was a bit of a shame for Genevieve's art to be seen in such a tiny format so today's update is some larger images for you to enjoy. The first one below deserves the size increase the most. It's so detailed and was sooo tiny in the strip. I've provided "ink-on-pencils" and "final-inks" versions:

You can tell Genevieve really loves drawing Gordo. Overall, the Gordo shots turned out better than the Kayli shots...well, not that the Kayli shots sucked but you can see the extra love in the Gordo ones:
I wanted to take a moment to talk about our definition of "inks". We realize that Genevieve's inks are not like that of traditional comic inkers. That is a separate skill for a process that divides work between the penciler, the inker, and the colorist. Genevieve does all the art and what you'd see as inks in other books, she would do in the color stage. We just didn't get a chance to explore that stage enough for our print comic...or even for this strip for that matter.
On Friday, I'll put up the rest of the shots as well as the Kayli shots but with all the fan service for our male readership (which is probably most of you), I thought I'd do some fan service for the gals this time around. Oh and ladies, Genevieve assures me that "bare butt Gordo" is in the works...oh god. /shudder
