The Possible cover and some coloured images

Cover above. And I've settled for the title "The Soldier Legacy."
Below are example coloured pages featuring day and night scenes - have coloured 10 pages plus the cover and flats have begun on the 11th. I don't know about the status of the second story; because of the amount of time and work to do the pencils, page prep and colouring (I haven't even considered the lettering yet.), the second story may become an 'epilogue' and the rough pencilled pages could be cleaned up, maybe one or two other pages to make the current ones Ive drawn make sense and go from there. I have two internships (one possibly involving comic drawing), a thesis, series bible work for the innovation challenge and an animated trailer that I havent considered yet (phew), so maybe cutting my losses and making a coloured issue, with 'special features' (and perhaps a grayscale or pencil version included too), could fill out the graphic novel a little too.

Progress- Page colouring

ok, quick update.
Penciling for story 2 has paused the last few days while I try and work through two more major projects that have cropped up (stressed as all hell at the moment), but I have managed to colour a few pages between shifts at work.

Colouring (if you've read the experimental project posts) is not my strong point, but they are turning out ok considering I chose to bypass the inking stage. I felt that I would just ruin the look of the pencils if I screwed it up, plus to have to colour and letter this first story and then do it again to the second story I havent pencilled yet, plus my thesis, plus the other two projects, I wouldnt get any of it out... plus the pencils and colour make it look rough and dirty like the environment. (and the inking of the later pages including the soldier fight in the jungle would be a pain to have to ink- especially when I'm not confortable with it.)
Anyways, enough talk. gotta run

Quick Update

Just a quick one: Finished penciling for soldier story (about 22 pages), only have a couple of weeks in the schedule to hammer out part 2 which might be the same amount of pages...we'll see. Scanning pages in today, I will post a couple of pages up without wanting to give away too much.
I desperatley need to iron out my internship and formatting information for eventual printing.
More to come.
