PRJ2.12-13 by seangordonmurphy PRJ2.12-13 by seangordonmurphy
I know I posted this one in the past (and removed it at DC'S request). So now that issue 2 is due tomorrow, here it is again.

FYI, I had to divide this into two pages for issue 2. And I was my stupid fault--I accidentally drew it on an odd/even page instead of even/off. And two page spreads need to be even/odd.

But don't worry! For the trade I'm going to add extra pages, and I'll one that keeps this as a spread.

I find it amazing how full of little details your panels are but at the same time they are not visually polluted,rather than that, they are pleasing to the eyes.It's the kind of comics art that may give us at least two satisfactions,at least one is assured here.

My friend Jerry told me I should check out your stuff a couple weeks ago and boy am I glad I did!! Just bought PRJ & PRJ2 yesterday and they were AWESOME!! if you hadn't posted this page, I wouldn't have known that you messed up! The only thing that could give it away is the fact that the uncle's face is obviously blown up larger than it was drawn at. Have to admit though... this spread kicks ass, can't wait to see it in the trade!

Awesome work man. You managed to keep the character's likeness from childhood to adulthood. I have to get to the store and pick this up.

It's really moving to see the sadness get denser with Thomas's older self. It's like he's stuffing it all in.

By the way, I did want you to know that you're my hope for comics lately. Despite going to school for sequential, I have such a hard time finding books I like--yours is one of them. And by no means have I ever waited so eagerly each month waiting for issues to come out. So thanks. :)

THanks for the support! Hope I don't let you down. If people make it past issue 2, then the rest of the series will take care of itself.

The little kids face progressions are so moving when it jumps to Thomas's older self,.......I'm a dad and it moved me to tears to think of my son ever having that much sadness on his face.

Excellent job.

Thanks for checking it out. My friend has kids and he was really somber after reading issue 3 (I had a proof on me). Hope you find it moving as well.

Thanks man, issue 2 felt like it went on forever, a feat rarely achieved by a comic book it was so dense and I mean this in the most utterly impressed way. I've never had time move so slowly while I was trying to absorb every moment of a book....BRAVO. Can't wait for #3

These pages are just so good. From the storytelling and shot selection to the little details like the photos and the tap handles (good God, those tap handles)...just great stuff! I can't seem to get single issues where I'm at right now (Singapore) but I'm anxiously awaiting the trade.

So you DID have a bunch of PRJ pages vanish from the site!

Thank goodness, I thought I was going loopy. When do we get back to the chick with the sci-fi guns? Or was that JtB?

:iconseangordonmurphy:
seangordonmurphy Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
Not sure which page that was. Probably PRJ because I haven't done SCIFI in a while. Next issue that page'll be out.

Since DC usually has ads running through the issues could that have been a problem that could have been solved by switching ads around in place of a page to push it forward to make it a double page spread? Or would that have been too much jumbling around?

seangordonmurphy Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
Yeah, no ads. Normally that would have worked.

"Books like this" are the only reason I buy comics at all anymore. Selfishly... I'm happy there were no ads! Nothing to distract me from the experience! And going Black and White... brilliant!

gavinsmith Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
Haha well hopefully your sales more than make up for that. Besides the subject matter, do you think it being B&W has anything to do with lack of advertising?

Wow. Dont have any words to describe this and your others masterpieces, really. I love your work, page's composition, textures,etc... Is there something made traditional or it's all digitally or its everything traditional with a little bit digitally?
And btw, how long does it take to pencil and ink a page like this one?
Im asking you this cause Im an aspirant artist and so these things are very important for me to know in order to improve myself. Thanks! Continue the excellent work and good luck with future projects ;)
Take care

Damn that first panel must have been hard to do xD!!! One thing though, and this is something that I always asked myself about. Why so many hatches around the nose? I first noticed this on Joe. Is something of you style or is some kind of impression you want to give.
