A book I'm working on is set in this town.

Okay...slowly A65's sketches are happening...

Yesterday and today were all about finalizing what the sketches will look like and maintaining continuity on them. I also didn't like the aspect ratio on the next to last one so had to redo that, and I decided to have a book in somewhere in every frame I'm doing. Some of them will be small or hard to see, but they will be in there.

On top of this, I adjusted the interior of Adam's work area...mainly the architecture of the chapel. I watched an episode of Midsomer Murders, last night, which had a concert in a chapel and it gave me some ideas to liven up the room. Make it more lovely to him. Same for the Dark Room, where he takes a book he's catalogued to be shelved.

Now I'm thinking of the best way to do the coloring in...if I should work on one frame at a time or do it production line-like. Pick a color for Adam's suit and fill those in all the way through, same for his skin tones and the wooden beams of the chapel. I'll decide on that when I get back from LA.

I have another job lined up in Kansas City for the middle of May, so it's not going to go fast. But I want each sketch to be right, so I doubt I'll  have this set to go before Thanksgiving. I am still thinking of traveling during August, but also wondering if my time would be better spent focused on APoS? I'm behind schedule on that, and I'm at a stage in life where it's hard to concentrate on work and art and writing, all at one time. I'll have to do a lot of thinking on this one.

I have too damn much to think about...dammit...
