Pencil art is the first step in creating the pages needed to make a comic book. I wanted to update you all about the 3rd issue of Trophy Girls and share some the art with you.
During the interview on Amos’ podcast I mentioned the 24-page script was complete. At that point it was in the hands of the artist. Mel Joy, who provided the art for issue #2, is back again! In addition, she’ll also be inking the final pencil art.
Trophy Girls #3 will take place during the same time frame as the previous issue. Likewise, it is told from my point of view, just as issue #2 was told from Crystal’s.
Pencil Art Speaks Volumes Without Words Balloons
The penciled pages of a comic book should be able to tell you the story without the letterer. In other words, the action and facial expressions in the above pages should reveal what I’m feeling at that moment. Trophy Girls issue 3 isn’t all melancholy, however I don’t hide the fact that I was troubled.
For instance, sharing my battle with depression and the eating disorder that progressed isn’t something I’m proud of. On the other hand, I what I learned I carry with me forever. I can say, without giving too much away, that there are plenty of hilarious moments.
If you’ve not yet read the first 2 issues of Trophy Girls then don’t wait! Purchase your copies, read them, and before you know it, issue #3 will be available!
