Aedre’s Firefly Chapt VII: Choices (Part 15)
The brewing trouble looks about to boil over. Will Mrs. Gryffin’s demands to be taken back to work, with its underlying appeal to the need to make money, have any effect on her enraged husband?
The next couple of months of strips will include some switching of venues. This is due to the need to show in a fairly linear format that certain things are happening within the same time frame, and that some things are happening simultaneously. This of course may not be obvious when reading one strip a week, but on rereading, or reading from the beginning, I hope it will be more apparent. I’m also hoping that this way of presenting the material will gradually tighten the tension right to the end of the chapter. At that point I’ll ask you whether it worked or not.
I’ve returned to inking the unfinished pencilled strips for this chapter of Aedre’s Firefly. I’m getting excited again about the process, since creating my own “Photoshop Actions” to speed things up. This works so much faster when you have a larger number of files ready to be inked.
I haven’t yet had a chance to get to the post office to send off Todd’s sketch. Sorry, Todd. Will get to it as soon as I can.
I’ve been working on editing my Sci-fantasy novel “Endless Night of Stars” this month and though it’s going well, it’s pretty slow.
I’m also working on a fairly intricate tattoo design for a client, using the Inkpad app for the iPad. I’m really pleased with the results so far. I can only hope the client will be, too. I won’t be able to publish it, since the client wants it to be their own unique tattoo, but I may be able to show you some of the stages of the workflow involved and perhaps an altered version. We’ll see.
Thanks for reading Aedre’s Firefly and for your encouraging comments! <3
