Building out the Warren

This time around, I want to create a greater sense of place in “Furry Widdle Bunny”. While the 1st two months of strips (already queue!) are the familiar sparse environments, I’m building out 3D models of the more frequent locations that the strip will occur in.

First up, for December and January strips, is the common living space in Simon’s co-op house. I’ve got a large piece of that work done and just need to put in things like couches and tables and such.

Pencilling the FWB Strip

With six weeks remaining before the debut of the weekly Furry Widdle Bunny strip, I’ve started pencilling the first storyline. Here’s an in-progress peek at the very first panel, awaiting finishing and colors!

1st Panel of the FWB Weekly Strip (Pencil)

The lettering is completed, barring any minor nudging, and I’m pretty happy with how the custom font is working out.

I’ve settled on really thick borders, not rigidly squared. It has a nice bold feel to it that I like. FWB started without any panel borders at all, which I still think worked for the opinion page look it was shooting for. Funny page strips thrive on borders, though, so I’m over-compensating by giving more border than required.

Onward to “inking”!

This Is Only a Furry Widdle Test

With the deadline for prep work looming, it was time to bite the bullet and actually test out the theory that I could produce a comic digitally. This meant learning the tools at least well enough to make myself look silly. This, I feel, has been accomplished. Behold the test strip, written in seconds and taking hours to produce. At least I have an idea of what I need to do for the real strips… that I need to start drawing by this weekend, if I want to keep my schedule!

Probably my biggest concerns are getting the panel and word balloon borders in shape. The rest of it is relatively under control. Anyway, I’m still feeling excited about this. Now back to work!
