Since what we're promoting here is a single comic book of 40 pages, it's tough to show images without spoiling things. But if you know much about my art philosophy, you'll know I am obsessed with the intricacies of drawing faces. So here's a big Eve montage! I feel like she is my most versatile character to date--expression-wise. I worried it might be the opposite because I was trying so many new things--like her eyebrows are higher up, so how do you make sure people know she's surprised or angry or just ambivalent?
Maybe it's Brandon's writing, like maybe he wrote a full range for her. He certainly writes with a lot of trust that my expressions will tell the story, which is really cool. Or maybe I just chose a lucky design. Maybe I'm just happy. Whatever it is, it's got me excited for each new page because I'm curious what I'll learn next.
A little update: our Kickstarter has almost reached its goal! Thank you so much for all your support!! The reaction has been pretty overwhelming for me...this is just not a normal life I lead and sometimes I think it's unfair to be this lucky. It's weirder because I was so uncool in my youth (I'm sure some of you can sympathize).
But I'm so glad you guys are sticking with me past Batwoman and in the end I think it's very good news. We're doing a creator-owned book that doesn't involve superheroes and has a female lead--three things that could've counted against us. I'm glad something like this is succeeding!
Another cool update, Brandon noticed that our supporters seem to be about 1/3 female...yay!! And a lot of you have been interested in the "Insider Package" reward, which probably means you are either into creating comics or you just happen to be a "behind the scenes" junkie. Either way, that makes you cool! Hah.
Anyway, THANK YOU! We'll continue to update, probably add some more rewards, and otherwise keep you entertained.
