This last week was a real slog… Monday and Tuesday I finished inking the Schlock Mercenary: The Teraport Wars bonus story. It’s 11 pages long, and details Schlock’s first experiences off of Ghanj-Rho — his earliest memories, and some of the most formative events of his “childhood.” It is a tale of tragedy, woe, high drama, cheap merchandise, and big explosions.
But it’s only INKED. I still need to COLOR it. Including the big explosions, of course.
Wednesday and Thursday I colored strips for the buffer, knocking down two weeks, and replacing a faulty monitor halfway through. Friday I scripted and podcasted. Saturday I pencilled and inked an entire week of comics.
Don’t get me wrong. I love working hard. It’s just that I’m only now, at 7:00pm-ish local time, starting to feel like I’m decompressing from the work week, and it’s almost time to recompress, kicking it into high gear for another week.
I’m okay dying at my drawing table. I just don’t want to do it for another forty years or so.
