Looks cool - love your use of colour on the cover, so I'm very keen to see the interior colour art. I'll definitely pick one up once it hits Comicsy.

Hi Owen, thanks for the support.  I'll see you at Bristol on the 10th.

Hi Greg and Locust, I'm glad you like the cover.  I'll post the cover pencils on this thread tonight after I finishing inking a page this evening.  Will be about 12-ish just before I go to bed.

Cheers for that, David - I love these behind-the-scenes glimpses. At some point in the lead-up to the comic launching, I am crossing my fingers for a sneak peek of some interior art WITH MONSTERS IN IT!

Hi Greg, Monster-wise in this issue Kane goes up against Zombies, Vampires and a Poltergeist. 

Here is the first page from story one with out text. I've worked hard to keep the artwork
consistent through out the issue.



Before penciling or inking page one I created a rough layout which can be seen below.
I did this for every page to make sure I leave enough space for speech balloons.



Once I was happy I then started to pencil the page using 4H pencils.  (See below).
Non reproductive blue pencils might be better for some and save time. However I
like the tones I can create with a lead pencil which then translates into different
methods of blocking and shading that I use when inking.



I will be posting a splash advert with some more of the interior artwork up
probably around the middle of the week. Although I might have more rough
designs to share if anyone is interested.

Looks great.

Put me down for a copy, and hassle me if I forget.

Shaman Kane had its first review over on the ECBT2000AD website the other day here is a link.
http://2000ad.wordpress.com/2014/05/22/review-shaman-kane-issue-1/

Shaman Kane also did quite well at the Bristol convention the other week.  I wouldn't normally post print run numbers and sales figures.  However not including the sales for Martillo, the HardVacuum anthology and my online and local sales, 28 people decided to pick up a copy. I feel this is not too bad for a completely new small-press comic.  So thanks to those people who took a chance with their hard earned cash and bought a copy.  It was nice chatting and I appreciate your interest. :)

For anyone interested in buying a copy of Shaman Kane here is a link to my comicsy shop.

For anyone who missed the link to my Bristol report over on the events forum here is another link.

I will also be selling copies of Shaman Kane at Thought Bubble this year.  Even if you don't want one, pop over and say hello! :D

My review of Shaman Kane is up.

If you've seen art by David before you'll know its good. I've reviewed him in The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel, Zarjaz and Dogbreath.
