Something Lurks

Under the driftwood, deep in the shadows, something lurks.

This was a fun one. Completed in two evenings. I have probably another five panels of art to get through so I'm getting close to being finished. Finally.

Ollie descends a strand of seaweed

Here Ollie and Snarz climb down from a boulder separated from the rest of the beach by a deep ravine. Anemones lurk at the bottom, curled up during the low tide.

The leap is done.

 Here is the finished Inked version of Ollie and Snarz leaping. They jumped from a barnacle high on the side of a sandstone cliff.

The panel, which I've started to ink is our heroes climbing down strands of seaweed to anemones tucked into a ravine on the beach.

Ollie and Snarz leap! New art.

Here is the start to the next panel of art I'm working on. Ollie and Snarz have just leaped from a great height to follow a clue that will hopefully point them in the direction of home.

Still needs some background drawn in and then some thicker lines to separate and add silhouettes to the forms.

This one is about halfway finished

A nice clean drawing of this moment. Angry hermit crab straining its claws down into a crack in the sandstone.

Life is tough on the beach when pretty much everything is a giant monster in size compared to you.

This one went nice and quickly. I'm about two hours into this one and will be finished detailing the rocky canyon in probably another hour. Which is good, as I have a lot more of these to get through if this book is ever going to be finished.

Another panel of art finished

Ollie and Snarz, exhausted, sleep on the belly of a barnacle. Waiting for the shore to break free of the high tide. Shorebreak.

Another one done. Moving on!

Another panel inked. I'm going to press on and get the rest of them done and then I'll go back and paint them all.

In other news here is a change.org petition from the authors that are getting treated well by amazon and explains why as reader you should be behind them rather than be talking about boycotting them amazon).
