Today's batch of art is all about the cosmic wanderer Phantos -- as seen in 1992, 2003, and 2009:

Our old buddy Phantos makes a guest appearance in the latest issue of Dale Martin's WATUSI THE TALKING DOG (#27). Very fun, and Dale did a great job on it. You can order it for $1.00 + a stamp from:

Moving right along, another partially-inked page:

I thought I'd do a quick runthrough of how I letter in Photoshop. Not that I think I'm such a hot PShop guru or anything... mainly I'm curious to see how my method differs from other peoples'.

Now if I can just get the rest of the interior art done...

Getting back to work on the Phantos "Revenge of the Samurai" story. Here's a sketch of the titular vengeful samurai:



and an inked panel from page 7 showing hero and villain facing off:



Once I have a story laid out, I tend to jump around and work on bits of different pages at random. It helps me stay interested... for some reason, going straight through from first page to last feels like a drag.

I decided to take the first panel all the way to finished art, just to make sure my "I'm Making This Up As I Go Along" Photoshop drawing process would actually yield usable results:

I'm pretty pleased with the results. I'm always worried that pages drawn on the computer will look... well, computer-y. But this looks a lot like one of my "analog" pages. Except the panel borders are straighter. :P

I did rough thumbnails in my sketchbook, then scanned them into Photoshop, and laid them into a page template. Thumbnails are on the bottom layer, panel borders on another, and lettering on a layer above that. Everything can be moved around and adjusted, and no doubt will be as I go in and start doing the finished art (which will be a whole 'nother layer of its own). Even at this rough stage, I can get a pretty good sense of composition and flow.

Some quick 'n sloppy sketches, trying to get the looks of the characters down. These were all done with Photoshop and a Wacom tablet:

"Phantos: The Revenge of the Samurai" is a short story I'm working on for the next issue of my minicomic, Fantasy Theater.

Phantos is a recurring character, a wandering mystic who travels the universe trying to learn everything there is to know about everything. Inevitably, he runs into trouble.

Here's the first 3 pages of the script. The original draft ran for 11 pages, but once I started to do layouts, I realized it was a bit cramped. Looks like it will end up being 14 pages.

I was going through some old minicomics, and I found a couple of covers I drew for the APAzine "Tetragrammaton Fragments", back in the early '90s:
