Cottonseeds 3 Horror Art

Support | Episode 8 | Independent Art Series

Welcome to the Independent Art Series, Episode 8, Support!

I have 18 finished pages. Wow! That means only 4 pages left. But, I had to make a change to a few pages, so the issue might be more than 22 pages. I’ll let you know. My goal is to finish Cottonseeds Issue 3 in a week. Ready? Set. Go!

Perspective Support

I discovered a wonderful workaround in the past week. Instead of getting frustrated and fed up with the sclerosis blocking the ability to perceive depth, I changed the perspective of the character. Front view, side, view, back, etc.

This is a huge relief for me and it’s allowed me to work a lot faster.

All of these screenshots will be high-resolution in the final issue. I’m only showing you previews so you can see my creative process.

Horror Art

I had a misadventure with horror art. I wanted to do a lot more, but there aren’t many opportunities in issue 3.

I loved the idea of using a tree with burls (or burr or knots) to represent eyes, like the image below. I was going to add icky fluid oozing out of the eyes.

Something like this. Sort of.

The idea of burl worked, but I could only do one view – front. So, that eliminated any movement or action.

I compromised and settled on more cartoony Halloween style art.

The image is funny, if nothing else. In such a dark story, a little comedy relief doesn’t hurt.
