Here is #4 of THE GLOAMING. As with the others, there are pages that I am pleased with and pages that I just couldn’t get to my satisfaction. For the most part, I think it came out alright. I hope you agree.
The story is following its intended trajectory (which is rare) and I have high hopes for it. I can’t realistically expect any mainstream success with an explicitly pornographic comic book. Unlike my my “obscure art comics”, this has a relatively accessible plot. (I have a hard time picturing a movie adaptation, however.)
Predictably, this issue took longer than it should have. I am unable to streamline my process, and reign in the need to fill every inch of paper with little textures and greeble. It helps to conceal my mediocre drawing ability. I do try to improve everyday, though.
As always, thank you for your patience. Hopefully, #5 will come out a little faster. As of today, I’m guessing that the whole story will take 8 or 9 issues. We will see!
