On The Run - Issue 3 !

Third issue of On the Run! This is a sketch comic, an exercise I've created to cut down on self-censorship and just draw.

I had to really pinch myself to get this one out. It turns out that the little hater in me was just waiting for that 'new project glow' to wear off before throwing a lot of excuses in my way. It was only some nice feedback from the community that got me off my buttocks and knock this out. I even know where the story is going! You're going to love it.

If you like these at all, or even think they stink, leave a comment, yeah?

Let me know what you think about the pacing, i quite like it.

I wanted to do as much as possible with just a pencil and a sheet of paper. My focus is on narrative, trying to use the techniques found in Scott McCloud's book "Making Comics." By forcing myself into these limitations I can improve on my storytelling skills and quick sketch technique...hopefully. It's also a quick project you can do in a day. Try it!
