Round 2 pencils

Our Round 2 submission is now up and open for public voting!

You can see the completed work over on the Idol site here: http://www.dimestoreproductions.com/forum-t36286.html
And don't foget to vote while you're there.Remember you can vote ONCE A DAY EVERY DAY.

But what I want to share right now is the pencils of some of my favorite action poses.

It's a pretty busy time right now (family out visiting) so this is all I have for now.

Coming soon: all of our Round 2 material,plus some behind the scenes stuff. Look for it soon, but maybe not that soon with the family here.

Tomorrow is the day

My amazingly talented colorist has promised to have the last pieces of completed art for Round 2 in my inbox by midnight.

If everything goes right we'll be up for the judges tomorrow morning and then open to the public vote shortly after they're done with us.

Until then, here's a pretty new banner to look at. You might find this one out on the internet somewhere, its's one I created as a trial run for Project Wonderful.

Round 2 update 4/4/09

Haven't posted in a while, partly because there hasn't been much news to post and partly because we've been working hard getting ready for Round 2.

Small Press Idol Round 2 began on April 1 and so far 3 projects have posted: Faction, The Machine, and Hometown Heroes (formerly Clean Slate).

As of now we're expecting to have Steel Rising make an appearance around April 10. The assembly line is cranking and all of Brad T's pencils are moving on to Joe for inks and then Mike for color. Brad has 2 character action poses left, and they may even be done as I write this.

Now, why the delay? Why didn't we have these ready to go for day 1 to start getting the most votes possible as soon as we can?

One word--QUALITY.

I've been through the entries from the last 2 years of the contest (and there was some really great stuff), and I'm confident to say that our entry is going to blow away anything that's been seen before.

That may make me sound like a cocky jerk, but I truly believe in the skill of this creative team, and every one of us has given their absolute best and beyond.

So, April 10 is the day to watch for. Or maybe a day or two later, depending on how long it takes to send everything out.

Whatever day it is I'll be sure to post (over and over, here and on Facebook and Twitter) and let you know where and how you can see it.
