That Time of the Year

2012 copyright Alan Bennett and BBVA

Hey there sports fans Al here with the latest:
Well Christmas is nearly here and time to say thanks for the friends and family that you have.  I know that I am.  Especially after this last week.
Hug them and tell them you love them because that is the greatest gift you can give them.

The N.W.I.P.A. installation- SWEET!

                                            Well by this time my large Christmas Tree ornament is completed and turned in and should be adorning a tree and a window front.  Pretty cool. 

Next on the commission agenda is a small scratchboard piece of Egyptian Goddesses Sekhmet and Bastet.   That will be a fun one to do as well.
Partial color.

Most of the basic color has been applied to the work.  But now comes the finishing color to flesh out the work.  The digital coloring really fleshes out the pen and ink work that has already been laid down.  So be looking for CST #2 at ECCC this next year.
So what's this mean for Corrax?  That his first story arc will be completed in 2013.  What does this mean for future stories for Corvis?   New stories of course!  AND with a new story arc and a new way to render the characters within in a different color pallet to suit the story.  In this case its a noir type of story.  And the pallet will be muted with a turquoise/blue color with an off setting neutral grey color.

This will be all be incorporated into "A.I. Wars".  some of this you may have already seen in my thumbnails that I have posted recently.   Looking cool.
Now there had to be some talk about this big project for 2013. 
The collection of 16"x20" scratchboards are started to the collected.  And we are looking at about 62 pages.  Plus cover (front and back ) and the interiors.

This is a big deal for me as I am looking at the possible pulling back from the comics and focusing on the commission side and gallery work.  Dreams of Elysium bridges the gap between the two.
