Untold Tales of Bigfoot: Crossing Paths page 025

<<First   |  <Previous  |   Next>

This ravine’s not too deep, but nothing I’d wanna tumble down. And it looks like Scout’s finally calling on the big guy for some help. I only wonder if it’s too late.

Are there Bigfoot in Orgeon? Get this: People living on a remote Indian reservation on Oregon have been waking up in fear to the eerie sounds of roars and screeches coming from a nearby swamp that have raised the specter of a Bigfoot in the area. They speculate the wails are the sound of a baby Bigfoot separated from its mother (which is, actually, kind of sad). But if you’d like to hear the plaintive cry of what may be a young Sasquatch, read the whole story here.

No fan art this week, so I decided to post some process images. Below you’ll see the pencils, inks, flat color (where Scout looks naked without his markings) and final stages of a couple panels from this week’s page. Yup. That’s how comic book magic happens, folks.

Next week: Does Scout survive? Is Bigfoot still snoozing? Will this mountain lion have indigestion by morning? Is this my ham-fisted way of ending the comic? Tune in next week for a very special episode of Untold Tales of Bigfoot.

Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to hear what you think of the comic. Just remember, Untold Tales of Bigfoot is for grown-ups and kids. So let’s keep the comments appropriate.

  1. Oh, man…I’m on the edge of my seat!

    • Heck yeah!

  2. Scout sure has a hard head. Your tension building is masterful, Vince! Now let’s just hope that the big friendly dude is nearby… :-SS

    • Thanks, Wouter. I’m glad this tension is enjoyable on some level, despite worrying about Scout. These chase pages would zip by in the blink of an eye if they weren’t separated by a weekly upload schedule. So there had to be enough action/pages to show the pursuit covering a good bit of ground and time. But, as much as I enjoy delaying the payoff, I probably couldn’t get away with another page of this chase without starting a riot. So I’d guess that something big’s gonna happen next week. Something. Big. -v

  3. Scout needs Big Foot to the rescue!
    I really love seeing your sketch to finished art this week!

    • Thanks, David. I know I enjoy looking at other people’s illustration process. And talking to other cartoonists/artists like yourself, it seems most of us enjoy a peek under the hood. I just hope it’s not boring for all the forensic dentists and real-estate attorneys that make up the majority of my readership. : ) -v

  4. Hurry Bigfoot!!!
    This is great stuff, Vince… and I really enjoy the inside peek of the process!

    • Ah, the tension’s getting to me! If I weren’t afraid of running out of comic I’d post the next page right now!! Um…after I draw it, of course. Better get to work. Glad you liked the process post. I’m thinking about posting more as I go along. Thanks! -v

  5. I love the third panel with the mountain lion on the prowl. Scout is in a heap o’ trouble now!

    • That mountain lion CLEARLY is in no hurry at this point. It’s a foregone conclusion that he’s found his midnight snack. If this were a 1940s movie serial, you’d have to wait a whole week to find out if — oh yeah. Thanks for stopping by, Jeff! -v

  6. Man, things just keep getting worse!

    • I know, Michael! Just wait until next week when the giant, blood-sucking squid shows up!-v

      • A giant bat/bear mutant would be cool too.

  7. Really, anything could happen at this point. ; ) -v

  8. It’s a treat to get a glimpse into another artist’s creative process. Your pencils are so much tighter than mine. VERY nice.

    • I love looking at other people’s process steps. I learn so much. And beyond the learning experience, it’s just stunning to look at black and white line art sometimes…to see the construction of the page that might go unnoticed once the color draws your attention. Love that stuff. That’s why I’m posting mine. I knew there’d be other process nuts out there. Thanks! -v
