So Steve Alhquist has written an Oz Squad novel. I’m not going to say anything about the book itself at the moment other than that I think it’s pretty good. And I think it’s a good way to introduce Oz Squad to readers who wouldn’t think of picking up a comic.
I’m providing the color cover and an as yet undetermined number of interior illustrations. I’m guessing that there will be at least 24 and perhaps as many as 48 illustrations total. I’m going to have to figure that out as I go but, for tracking purposes I’m going to figure on 36 illustrations as a good estimate. Right now we’re expecting the illustrations to be in black and white so that keeps the stages to Inked, Penciled and Roughed.
Here’s where the Oz Squad Novel Illustration project stands this morning –
Cover – Inked. Additional Design and Text to Come.
Penciled – 2
Yet To Be Started – 34
Well, that’s depressing.
And where are we today with the Oz Squad Comic?
Finished – 12 pages
Inked – 7 pages
Penciled – 17
Roughed – 9
Looks exactly like yesterday. So far so unimpressive.
See you tomorrow with a status report on The Black Seal comic.
