These last few weeks I’ve been having fun with these quiet pages of Scout and Bigfoot ambling through the forest, encountering other forest-dwellers. These pages still serve the story of the long quest, but they’re also self-contained 2-or-3-page mini-adventures. I wanted to see what Untold Tales of Bigfoot might feel like in a shorter format. I like it. Makes me think shorter, comic-book-length tales might be a lot of fun to work on.
Of course, all of that’s contingent on whether or not Scout stays in the forest long—term. And you can see in the final panel that’s not in his plans. That’s too bad, especially considering how well these two are getting along in panel 2. Anyway, here’s a quick process gif that shows panel 1 from inks to full colors.
For anyone who might not catch the reference in panel 1, this waterfall was first crossed by the pair back on page 17. Back then Scout was just starting to comprehend the communications gap.
Next week, Bigfoot eats a rabbit. No. I’m sure everything will turn out just fine. But if you vote for UTOB at TopWebcomics, I’ll make sure the rabbit lives.-v
