Slowly but surely plugging away at this one. Here's a preview of a short zombie comic I've had squirreled away for some time now.

Ink+Digital tones.

Dang! Bubba.  Found me another tangent!  From panel three across the lower border into panel six - the fellows right arm appears continuous with the strut of the mower handle, while his other arm is aligned with the zombie hand.  

I was just pointing out a similar item to :iconryanwinn: in his three panel Catwoman page, just posted.  He does it on purpose - but for what good, he hasn't explained.

Anyway - not trying to bug you or pick apart the work.  Just improving my ability to root out public enemy number 1.  

"In brightest day, in darkest night - no tangent will escape my sight . . . " Hehe.

Thanks for taking the time to point these things out!  I'm appalled :iconryanwinn: got his panties in such a twist over comparing aspects of my work to his.  Totally unprofessional and in bad form, he seems to think too highly of himself just because he inks over higher-caliber artists work, and when it comes to studying his personal creations he gets upset with an honest critique. Face it jack, you're not much better than an amateur like myself!

Yes.  Exactly.  Glad you agree.

But, I wouldn't sell myself short, if I were you.  You can draw well, unlike too many professional inkers who simply trace.  Some of the big name masters of embellishing are mediocre to poor when it comes to penciling - and you, Dude, are good . . . damn good.

Oh! Dude. A zombie title! That's where i always figured i'd start. Hehe.
The drawing is beautiful. I have have to question the organization of the first two panels, though, with respect to the reading structure of the page.

Up there in the right top panel you're directing the read up and pointing it out (to nowhere) through the top corner. Wouldn't the page flow better using the same diagonal to bring the action down so it points to the third panel? You could probably do this elegantly by inserting the first panel into the second, thereby running that mower right into panel three.

Hey hombre! My apologies for the delayed reply~ Thanks for all the input! You're right about that first panel for sure, it just kind of sucks you into the void of space. I admit I don't think everything through as much as I should when it comes to panel arrangement, i really like your thought of simply inverting the image, it really helps with the flow, and also gives me the feel of when I really yank on the mower ripcord towards me to turn over that engine. Thanks again for the solid pointer, ans stay tuned for a full update on this sometime soon(ish)!

Glad to hear it. (I was worried.)
Once a week I go to Pappy's Golden Age Blogzine and review the old comics. Pick up a lot of pointers that way. Also, got into "reading structure" reviewing an article on it in the ORB compendium, which is Mike Hoffman's graphic journal.

(BTW- did you know that Hoffman severed his connection with comic books and fantasy art? He's out of it completely. No commissions, no work of that sort at all.)

Hey, thanks for the reccomendation to the golden age blog, it was instantly bookmarked, in return i give you [link] , another good golden/silver age comic blog, with some other good bits of nostalgia mixed in. Hope you dig!

And yeah! I heard about mikes transition recently, through you i think. That takes some dedication, but at least i can still read through some ORB works. Could you recommend anything in particular?

P.S. You mean in the ORB compendium? It's such a grab-bag of different stuff - personal history, ideas, technical advise. What makes it difficult is that compendium has all the issues thrown together. There is no indication of individual issues, no separations of volumes - just a continuous flow of articles and artwork, interviews and lists. Not a single page number in the whole thing.

It would seem to contain 11 issues (based on the table of contents). In the fourth issue, then, there is an article called CLOWN PATHWAYS that takes as its topic "reading structure". I'd recommend it, if you can find it. It's just one page, but that page is gold. Comes right after his two page Mars Mercenary ink demo and before an 8 page science fiction story STRANGE MAGICKS. Otherwise, can't go wrong with NUDIST UPDATE in issue 3.

BTW- his SECRETS of DRAWING is organized (dis-organized) the same way. Not even a page number. No way to match the table of contents to the contents. Just gotta thumb through it and take what you get. Don't know anyone else I could forgive for such arrogance and disregard. But what can I say? I feel his pain, so I cut him the slack.

No, not Wrightson's blog actually,whoever runs it is just a big fan. Though i'm not sure who the guy is, just about everything is scanned from his personal collection, so you get to see high quality scans of excellent subject matter. Plus all the pinups are nice too ;)
