Getting stronger

I have been Inking a tone, and especially stippling a ton to further the completion of 2005. While I keep feeling better about the outcome & like these pages keep getting stronger. My neck shoulder & hand are getting weaker. I am in some lame-o pain. I gotta figure some way of stretching or getting rad that makes this less difficult. Its interesting to me that this is harder on me then coloring or penciling work. Stipple tendonitis:)

2005 in black!

Here are some real low and dirty photo"s straight from my old school non "smart" cell phone. I am now without a computer and am doing these posts when Amy is at work utilizing her laptop. So I couldn't use my fancy scanner. But last night I began another attempt at inking a massive section of my large comic "2005". I am unsatisfied each time I try and feel like I don't have the skills to do what the comic wants. However there comes a time when you must realize that a thing will not materialize on its own and you have to sometimes just go full force at a thing and take it on if you want it and love it so bad! So here I am doing that. In the end I may hate it. But It will be real. This comic is frightening because it has a darkness and it has friendships in the real world that it doesn't want to disappoint (you know who you are) and so it feels so big. Its like a tumor in my mind that once extracted will become a living thing on its own, a child made between me and my feelings and a few loved ones. And I have to raise it to be beautiful and hope it is recognized for all of its special qualities. How this is harder then other comics I have made, I am not sure. But it most certainly is.
I just wrote all of this?
