NU-CITY BlUES

A Part Between by MIgman

This week sees the penultimate part of A Part Between, envisaged as a vital component in the overall plot. However to keep it distinct and 'other' as regards the tale I decided to present the interlude in a completely different style. I'm working primarily in pencils and doing very little in photoshop for this section.

In two weeks I hope to begin posting Book II - again there is going to be a little change in the style - well, I'm going to stick to black and white - yes! that also means I'll be changing the past pages into Black and white also.

Why? Two reasons - one is the time it is taking to complete each is waaay too much - and, more importantly, I feel that they are stronger - though I might add a little halftone here and there.

Auto pilot by MIgman

Pages are going to be updating on auto pilot for the next couple of weeks. In my real life I carve rocks, and I'll be doing an Xmas market in Edinburgh at the beginning of December. Gonna be long days standing in the cold but there'll be plenty of mulled wine so that will keep the cockles of my heart warm.

And if you happen to be in Edinburgh I'm along the Playfair steps so drop by and say hallo. I'm the only person carving stone so you can't miss my work.

Ciao for now.

Getting there. by MIgman

Ha! Sorted some colours though aligning certain elements has got me a little stumped for the moment. However the main thing to concentrate on is CONTENT!

Meanwhile there is lots to come in NU-City Blues. Soon Marcy Gray will make an appearance - she's a dude... well she was, originally when I first began the script. But the original character was too much of a mans-man and then I thought... " oh wait a minute, see if he was a she... that'd be really messed up!"

So hang on in there. Marcy will make her debut in a few weeks. From there in the plot thickens.

New Look by MIgman

I've started a face-lift... it's going to be an ongoing thing as time allows and as I learn a bit more CSS etc. This is Falconer's Streamlined template. I've been reading and following her posts to edit. Yeah, the colours still need editing but one-thing-at-a-time!

Tomorrow I will post pages 16 and 17. I'm working on some background material too. More depth for a world that's sunk! Ah... it's not so apparent yet... but yes, Nu-City Blues is an immense floating platform-city above a drowned world.

Only noticed today that the version of page 15 was incomplete... a minor issue (left in a pencil lines layer! Duh! Okay it's fixed.
