Here is an update on page 20 light inking is done. Still trying to stay on schedule for the June 21 show. Had a pretty productive couple days. Fun showing the kids, they are really good at critiques. They come up with great ideas on how to tie the story back to school and happenings that are specific to their class. This is so much more work than I thought. Every step seems to take longer than expected. I haven't even got to deep into the editing and rewriting yet. I just want to get 28 pages complete to see the whole thing together. I am noticing that the line work done on the computer doesn't always print well. Because I can zoom in I am adding detail that does not translate when I print it out on test pages. Learn as I go.
Here is our next frame in our Super Cow story. I dropped off the full comic to the second grade class just before Halloween. I left them the challenge of finishing the story on their own. I promised to come back after the new year to see what they come up with. Some started to sketch even before I finished handing out the books to the rest of the class. I would not be surprised if many will lose the book over time but I plan on showing my next pages to them as I go.
