WHOOMP!! Double-page spread! CLICK HERE to see that flying tackle in all its bone-crunching glory. This was going to be a single splash page, but the longer I worked on it, the more it seemed to need a big, bombastic 2-page spread. I know it doesn’t give you a lot of new information, but hopefully it’s big and loud enough to hold you over until next week’s page.
To help make up for the minimal narrative this week, I uploaded some of the process steps for this spread below. Pencils, Inks and the Flat Color step right before I add any shadows, highlights or other color details. And, though I see him like this all the time, Scout may look funny to those of you who don’t get a chance to see him without his brown markings. You can just pretend he’s so scared that he turned completely white.
Oh, one more thing. I’ve been told Untold Tales of Bigfoot made the short list of the Cartoonist Studio Prize for best webcomic of 2012. The award is a collaboration between Slate and the Center for Cartoon Studies. It came as a huge surprise to me since I hadn’t entered UTOB in any sort of competition. Winners will be announced March 1, 2013. I don’t know if Bigfoot and Scout will get any further in the competition, but all three of us are very honored to be considered and thankful to whoever thought we were good enough to put us up for nomination. -v
