Sneak Peek - The Gamma Gals #1, Page 17 by ffnb
Sneak Peek - The Gamma Gals #1, Page 17
Here is a sneak peek at Page 17 of The Gamma Gals Issue #1, Page 17. I managed to meet my goal of completing pages 15, 16, and 17 by week ending 3/21/2015, so I'm very happy. The next milestone is to have pages 5, 6, 7, and 8 penciled and inked by the week ending 3/28/2015. I certainly hope I can maintain the momentum!

Hey, everybody! It's been quite a while since I've given an update on the status of my upcoming comic book, The Gamma Gals. As some of you have no doubt seen, I've been working on pages for issue #1! It took me a bit to find a workable balance between work, my wife, and drawing, especially as it's been crunch time at work, and I've had to do overtime.

I'm pleased with the progress that I've been making, and I'm not going to make any promises, but my plan is to finish at least 2-3 pages a week as my schedule allows. At that rate, I could possibly finish the penciling and inking of The Gamma Gals #1 in the next month. Then I'll be moving on to the next stage; coloring and lettering each page!.

While I initially planned to release The Gamma Gals as a complete graphic novel, I have decided that I may release the issues individually as I complete them. Seeing as I'm handling writing, penciling, inking, coloring, and lettering myself, the wait between issues could be long, however. Even so, I feel like I'm learning a lot producing this book, so I feel the production of issues 2, 3, and 4 will go a lot smoother than 1 has! I've been producing pages in non-chronological order, as I find it easier to tackle than drawing them in order. Here's a look at my intended roadmap for the production of this issue:

Week ending March 21st: Have pages 15, 16, and 17 penciled and inked
Week ending March 28th: Have pages 5, 6, 7, and 8 penciled and inked
Week ending April 11th: Have pages 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22 penciled and inked.
Week ending April 18th: Have pages 9, 10, and 11 penciled and inked.
Week ending April 25th: Have pages 12, 13, and 14 penciled and inked.

Week ending May 2nd: Begin the coloring and lettering process.

I honestly have no idea how long it's going to take me to color all 22 pages once they are complete, so I'm not ready to give a roadmap for when I expect to have those pages done. That's all for this update, so I'll see you all next time!

Awesome!

Great idea for a giveaway as well! I have no idea what I'd commission, though! Maybe, Spider-Gwen...

I'd love to try my hand at a Spider-Gwen! Is their pose or action you'd like to see her doing??

Not that I can think of at the moment! I'm working on another Spider-Gwen piece myself. Lol.

Since there's no background, anything with her swinging or flipping around would be cool!

Looks amazing. It actually, at first glance, looks like a maquette, not a drawing. I WISH The Rhino looked like that in the Spider-Man movies...
