Page 10: The lunchroom!

This page took a hell of a lot of work. While I freely cop to using photo references and then basically “tracing” it was still pretty tough to convert a color picture into black and white. When I look for references, I’m mainly looking for composition and poses. To my dozens, that enjoy using their computers to work with, I cannot say enough about Manga Studio. It is a great program specifically for drawing comics. This tool has enabled me to experiment and create the scenes I’ve been carrying around in my head for 30 years.

As this page depicts a high school setting, it is fitting that I dedicate this page to the memory of Sean Smith, an outstanding educator, father, and friend. Sean recently passed away from a battle with cancer. It is a great teacher’s destiny to live on in his students. And live on, Sean will.
