The Work Continues!

It’s been a few weeks since I put any work in on the comic strip, but yesterday I got to work on Atomic Tails #31. This time we’re going back to Rio an Trog, but I’m having some trouble planning out the strip in only 4 panels. I might just have to make a bigger, Sunday styled, strip for 31.

I was trying to create a new car element for the two to ride in, but it didn’t turn out so good. I tried to vector over the image of a real car (using a picture of a car I use for work), but it just didn’t fit in with the panels I’m currently drawing. So, I’ll just keep using the elements I’ve already made, for now.

I also just recently fixed an unnoticed grammar error on A.T. #13. This is why I need non-family and friends to read and critique the comic. I made that strip 3 years ago, and I just now noticed that I wrote a your instead of the you’re that was needed. Stuff like that bugs the hell out of me. I know the comic is probably chuck full of errors, but still, that was just embarrassing. It’s a poor life to be both stupid and old.

Anyways, I’ve got some of the sketch work done for 31, so hopefully I can finish it early this week so as to begin inking an coloring next week.

Keep checking back for more updates! Also, check out www.murraybrotherscreative.com! We’re revamping the old Murray Bro’s site to something that can include our stock art work, print on demand stuff, comics, and anything else we draw, vector, or create.

Atomic Tails #29

I think this was longest break that I’ve ever had between comics.

So… I’m back at it., This year (I hope) to produce a bunch of new comics. Since last August, I’ve spent a bunch of time practicing the characters and cartooning, but #29 is based on old sketches I did last summer, so I don’t think a lot of the new practice really shows up here. Though I do kind of dig Rio in panel 3. That was actually a tough pose to get and at one point I even sketched out the entire interior of a BMW, but I felt it was unnecessary.

It honestly feels really good getting another comic done. I know I’m not the best cartoonist, and probably pretty bad at it, but I really like working on Atomic Tails, and I think I forgot how good it feels to finish one.

Well, Chud and I are writing new stuff, and I hope it won’t take another six months for a new comic!



Cheers!
