Judge Parker Process
Here is another process blog of one of the recent Sunday strips which shows my pencils and then my inks. I do leave certain things for the coloring stage on the Sunday strips since I color those myself. I am still envious of the old timers who had a lot more room to work with on the strips. Even at half a tier, if the paper carries the whole strip its cramped as the lettering in much bigger to read well. Many papers only carry the bottom two rows of the strip, but you can always read it on line at Comics Kingdom. Will there be a rekindling of a old romance between Needy and he old boyfriend? I'm not telling....
