Rough Pearl Process

Here's a little animation showing the process I'm using for the new "realistic" version of The Rough Pearl. It starts off with the rough pencil drawing I made as I wrote and designed the page, then switches to a digital collage made from crappy iPhone photos, Poser renders, Sketchup backgrounds, and background figures swiped from the internet. Next we see the drawing I make from this in Photoshop, and finally the grey tones I add (there's a blue tint which I also throw in when I upload the final pages, but I'm considering abandoning it because the black and white look sort of appeals to me).

The Harbor Map

Dear Readers:

Stay tuned for Book Two of The Moon Prince starting next Friday, October 12th. In the meantime, what could be more fun than a map of the area where Max and Molly lived at the start of the book? The dotted line is the path they took in the rowboat to get from Hoboken to Mad Billy's cabin in pages 41-50.

Once More From the Top

Here's the first page of the new, more "realistic" looking Rough Pearl. I'll be putting up a new page as often as possible -- hopefully every week, but this way of working is very time consuming so please bear with me!
