The latest comic project by Jules Rivera, creator of Valkyrie Squadron, occasional pinch hitter on Princeless.

It's a magic school in the ghetto.

Pencil preview of page 8.  Yes, I know I posted pages 9 and 10 yesterday. I’m working a little backwards, but it’s my ash can and I’ll do whatever I please. 
I put this page off because of the obvious difficulty that goes with the establishing shot of Fortuna High 189.  Crowd shots are such a pain in the ass.
The pencils here are digital, done so because it’s a lot easier to overlay perspective grids, plunk in 3D artwork (like the car, it’s a Rolls Royce Ghost), or add decals like the graffiti. Overall, it just offers me a lot more options than traditional pencilling.
Oddly, this will get printed on an 11 x 17 board, where I ink traditionally using brush pens and liners.  The look of natural media inks help to give Misfortune High it’s messy, sketchy feel.  Such a look is harder to mimic digitally.  Also, it’s just so much less fun that way.  Inks are about getting dirty.  DIRRRRRRTY.
Post of that soon.
