Owen Heitmann - The Old Abandoned House - Adelaide - 8p FIN

Postby Owen Heitmann on Sun Jun 12, 2011 1:39 pm

Alrighty, doing three separate 8 page stories is starting to seem more and more like a terrible idea, but I'll give it a shot. I guess the words for my second attempt are favouring, shelf and jack.

I'm going to go have a shower and see if I get any ideas.

EDIT MAY 2012: I’ve removed the images of my pages from this thread, but this comic and most of my other 24-hour comics since 2004 can now be found in one convenient location online: http://24hourcomics.24hourcynic.com. Thanks!

Page 1! First word used already. And now I have to go to the shops and see if I can replace my rapidly drying up pens.

I intend to never draw the outside of that house again.

Second random word down! Page 2!

I'm going to try for a third page before I go see my friends' band.

Page 3! Now I'm going to go see some bands, and try to think of an ending for this story.

Image

I don't know what happened to perspective in that last panel. The house is not meant to look like it is starting to tip over.

Page 4! And there' the third random word.

The bands were good, and I've worked out how the rest of the story goes. Now I just have to draw it.

Huh, well, I suppose I could just give up on it, Robin - that option never occurred to me. Although this cop out page is the next best thing! Page 5!

The lazy black panels are essential to the narrative, I swear. The hammy exposition, not so much.

Page 6! And that's it for tonight - time for me to sleep. I'll have to set my alarm to make sure I get up in time to finish the last two pages in my timeframe.

Meanwhile, the prognosis of my original plan to do three separate 8 page comics isn't looking too good - I intend to finish this second one, but right now I really can't see myself doing a third one tomorrow...

Page 7! And to add to the drama, my harddrive may be on the verge of crashing.

One more page! And a third story is definitely off the cards; my body hates me enough already.

It seemed feasible before the weekend started - but yes, now I think I must have been insane to even consider it.

Also, I thought I should post to say that I have now finished the last page! I think I started at 1pm yesterday, but I might have been using the midday words, so this is to say that the last pen stroke went down at about five minutes to midday. I just have to wait for the ink to dry, then I'll scan it and post it up.

And here's page 8! DONE!

Image

I don't think this ending is as tidy as that of the first story, but oh well.

If I had done a third story, it would have had all three characters from the first two stories, which would have been fun, because Mike is friends with both Jack and Alfie, but Jack thinks Alfie's a wimp and Alfie thinks Jack's a bully. Maybe another time!
