SPECTRUM 3

by firewolf826
This is a 24-hour comic I originally made on December 29, 2010. The first Take is the original 24-hour comic, which is only sketched. I am now in the process of finalizing the art in color, which you can read in Take 2.

I'm so glad to have gotten this story out of my head... (and on to paper)

When an imaginative middle-school boy finally faces the reality that mythical creatures are nothing but fairy tales, he sees something very unexpected outside his classroom window. Are his eyes just playing tricks on him, or is there more truth to all the myths and legends than most people realize?

I'm not getting anything else done today, so I figured I should at least be productive here and finish this page. Gosh, sometimes I need more willpower D:

Another unexciting page, wah. And next weekend's a con, so I definitely won't be uploading anything then. But the next few pages are in progress, so that's A+.

uuuugh. All I can say is: Sorry it's been so long since my last update!

I vow to do better every time, but things are always so busy ;___;

(And sorry for the lame page!)

Man, it's been a while. Sorry! Cosplay and full time job don't leave much time for comicky things... But mostly, full time job :|

Anyway, have another page for now.

I don't have much to say this time... other than I've hardly moved this whole weekend. But I somehow managed to finish this page, huzzah!

Whoops.
Looks like the holidays really took their toll on me. And my birthday was the other day too. Sorry for the long delay getting up a new page. ^____^;;;;

With this page, I've started a new method of coloring. Visually you shouldn't notice much of a different, but I'm trying to switch up my process after learning how a few other comickers work-- to speed up my working time and gain more integrated colors. After all, it's a good thing to experiment. This is one of my fav. pages of the comic, in general, too.

I'll try to maintain a weekly schedule, but I have some cosplay things to work on, so I'll be busy for the next month or so... >.>

(At least this marks the half way point...)

Next page! And I have little to say *exceptforinthatALTtextlulz* except, the holidays are approaching! And I had a crazy busy work week this week...

And, the end of the year also means it's been almost a full year since I originally drew this 24-hour comic. And... it's kind of sad that it won't be fully colored by the year's end. It's rather pathetic on my part that it hasn't gotten done, but those *cough* 5 months of not working on this mid-year really hurt. But! I am definitely planning on working steadily until this is done into the beginning of next year--- so that I don't feel like a total failure, yeah!~

(Guess I had more to say than I thought! OTL)

I should actually be on time for the next few weeks, hooray!!

Littering is bad!! Please, don't toss away your cig butts like Mitchell here-- it's super bad for the environment!

Also, I changed the spelling of Griffon many times... I think "griffin" is the most standard, but "gryphon" looks cool too... In the end I picked the spelling that kind of mixes the two... gyah.

Falling off schedule, like a boss.

(My fail is something to be rivaled. :D)

Slight Delay, My Bad.
Sorry for the lack of updates the last few weeks. This page has been ready, but I wanted to get moving on the upcoming pages as well before posting it. But that kind of slipped through the cracks... whoops.

Anyway, here you go! ...I don't know why this page is so... blue. O.O

What teenager travels alone *without* their ipod/mp3 player? None, that's right. I wonder what kind of music he listens to...?

Hi everyone~

Getting close to where I left off with the toned pages! So, soon I'll be coloring all new pages... and that's exciting X'D

Here's the next colored page...

And hey, no natural disasters here this week! Amazing! And it's Labor Day weekend, which means I have a 3-day weekend from work! (Always a time to celebrate!)

Hello, Irene.
Here's the third page, now colored. (Reminder: I am starting the comic over in color, so, sorry for the same pages over and over...)

Last time I posted, it was post-random-earthquake. This time is post-hurricane-Irene. The east coast of the US is falling a part, yes? Actually, not too bad here in the Philadelphia area. Biggest issue is flooding! Hope everyone is fairing well~

I've been making some good progress coloring these pages, so here's the next page!

In other news... how 'bout that earthquake today, northeasters?

(First one I've ever experienced)
Back to the Beginning, Hello, Wut?
Hey ya'll. Aww yeah, guess what? We're going back to the beginning. This time, with colored pages.

I finally realized that I hate trying to tone things and that doing so wasn't even helping me practice for when I finally get to working on my full-length webcomic, which will be in color. So, yep, I'm scrapping that and starting over coloring the pages, and eventually will finish this thing that I started several months ago...

Once again, this whole thing started as a 24-hour comic I did the very end of last year, and now I want to finish off the sketch comic. This whole thing is a giant experiment, and a lot of fun too, especially now that I'm more excited to be working in color.

Once I color up to the seven pages or whatever I had toned, I will delete those and just have the original 24-hour comic and the finalized colored pages! Thanks to anyone who has sort of been following my progress or is reading for the first time! :D

A random shout-out to PaperWingsPodcast.com. I absolutely love their show, they are so fun and knowledgeable. If you are looking for tips or advice about your creative project, certainly check them out! I listened to all their current podcasts in like one day, so good!

Yeah that parallel dimension is possible. They say little kids are more adept to those senses. It's interesting. Anyway, your art is very good! I like it:)

To Newcomers...
Hi! If you're a new reader, I just want to shout out that this comic was originally a 24-hour comic. And by definition, if should live somewhere online after completion. Erm, my point is, what you see in "Take One" is the original comic, done in under 24 hours. "Take Two" is the completed art that has been inked and colored. Reading the sketch version kinda sucks (unless you really want to), so please skip ahead to "Take Two"! <3
