STS Inktober 5

INKTOBER DAY 5! Today’s piece of concept art for my comic Save The Songbirds is a bunch of equipment. I’m still working out the look of guns, as I want to make them more fantasy to work with an all-ages story.

STS Inktober 4

INKTOBER DAY 4! For today’s piece of Save The Songbirds concept art, I have drawn Crystal House, where the Anti-Predation Agency operate out of. I’m still working on the definite shape and location of the place!

STS Inktober 3

For today’s inktober drawing and concept art for Save The Songbirds, here is the amazon rain forest. I drew in the songbirds on the left, but looking at it now it’s quite hard to see them. Colour will help, but doing these drawings really help me to see potential problems for the book that I wouldn’t know about otherwise!

STS Inktober 2

For this piece of concept art I am working out one of the main areas of Save The Songbirds, a cafe or pub that two of the songbirds work at. Doing concept work with inks is quite helpful, as pencil has a way of hiding when things are the wrong size or shape, but inks make it all very clear!

STS Inktober 1

In October there is a drawing challenge called Inktober where you draw an ink drawing a day over October. As I’m currently developing Save The Songbirds, my plan is to do one piece of concept art every day. These are security officers of the Anti-Predation Agency.

After many months of work and four episodes, I’m putting Save The Songbirds on hiatus. It was interesting to test making the story two pages a week and post every other, but I’ve realised that with this structure I’m not making my best work. I’m happy I’ve introduced this idea that’s been in my head for so long, but I need to take a step back and work on it in semi-seclusion for the majority of the process anyway. Hopefully I’ll be able to share more of the story with you all soon! Thanks to all who have been reading.

I’m sorry to say that this month’s Denna’s Day Out is being delayed due to my focus on Save The Songbirds. Stories 15 and 16 are both almost done, but I’m also tweaking colours and content of the first 14, as I’m going to make a short comic of Denna’s ‘morning’ comics (1-16), so in some ways it makes sense to hold them back and then soon re-release them all online and in print. After that, new Denna’s Day Out comics will cease to be monthly and become more sporadic with my focus on STS, but I do want to continue her journey, as things change somewhat once she hits afternoon. Thanks for joining in her journey so far!

When I was eleven I had an idea for a comic. Fifteen years later it is finally becoming a reality. ‘Save The Songbirds: Brothers In Wings’ will be serialised from Monday July 30th on savethesongbirdscomic.com and webtoons.com. I hope you’ll give it a read when the first part is released!

Denna's Day Out 14 RGB

Sometimes an idea for a story will come to me, and I won’t be able to work out if it’s truly a new idea, or if I’ve taken it from something else. I feel like this joke has been used in something else before but it sat in my head for a long time, and I couldn’t put my finger on where it was from, so just went with it. Enjoy!

Denna's Day Out 13 RGB

With this being the thirteenth story, I’ve now been posting these up once a month for a year. I feel like I’ve learnt a lot about making comics whilst making them, one thing being I need to speed up. I’m experimenting with lots of ways to speed up for my next big project. Denna’s not going anywhere, but I’m working on something bigger that will be posted more frequently, so stay tuned for that, hopefully within the next six months!
