Chocolate Quest part 2
Here is Chocolate Quest part 2. Part 1 ran last week. Parts 3 and 4 will run the next two weeks. But! If you come see me at the MSU Comics Forum this Saturday (Michigan State University, Snyder/Phillips Hall, East Lansing, MI, 11 AM to 5 PM, free admission), you can buy a mini-comic with all four parts and see the end of story early. Mini-comics will be $1, and I’ll have a few other minis for sale too (and I will be selling sketches).
If you are free this Friday evening, I highly recommend attending Stan Sakai’s keynote address at the MSU Comics Forum (also free!), 7 PM, Snyder/Phillips Hall. Sakai is best known for his long running Usagi Yojimbo comic book series (which I love).
I filled in panels two – five using a paint brush and Speedball ink, not with my usual brush pens. Sure, it was something I could have done in about two minutes in Photoshop, but I wanted to try using a brush–and I don’t always like how fills look in Photoshop.
[[No Filter Fox and HB stand outside a cave mouth shaped like a monster head. The head has horns and three eyes. The monster’s mouth is the cave entrance. Stairs lead into the darkness below. SCRAM is craved on the ground. No Filter Fox is scared, but HB is confident, holding his map, and points to the cave.]]
[[The pair is plunged into darkness, leaving only HB and No Filter Fox’s eyes floating in the sea of black.]]
[[A set of three giant eyes sneaks up behind No Filter Fox, who does not notice. HB notices thought.]]
[[The three eyes close in on No Filter Fox. HB turns around. No Filter Fox’s eyes look up at HB’s, confused.]]
[[HB rans out of frame, leaving only the cluster of eyes and No Filter Fox.]]
