Klurm and Nik








After a little email exchange, Bax wrote:

I´m glad you liked the pinups. I couldn´t resist giving them a quick background hehe. It´s just that I hate to see 'floating' drawings.

:o) hope to get the script soon! YAY

FIRST PINUP!

I got a special present in the inbox today: the first actual concept pinup. This one is of Orson and Evelyn.



Here's some detail shots of each of the characters in the illustration:






I'm floored. It looks great, and Orson's face looks appropriately smug. Evelyn is looking awesome, as well. I can't wait to see them all colored, or shaded. Actually, I can't wait to get some sequentials going. It won't be long now.

LOGO DESIGN

Comic Foundry has a great new feature on how much work goes into making the perfect logo. And, it got me into full-on logo mode. I made something that'll work for the web page, but I REALLY need to get a logo going.

I checked around and I contacted two of my favorites (in no particular order). Here's what they wrote back:

1. Lithium Pro:

"Our logo design rates start at $150 and go up from there, depending upon the complexity of the design. I'm sure that we could work out a solution for you. Just let me know what it is you are looking for and I will see what we can come up with for you."

2. Blambot:

"Logo design starts at $400.00 USD each and goes up depending on specifics.(projected time for research, illustration if any, etc.) The terms are 50% down payment, under signed Blambot project agreement. Turnaround is three to four weeks, per logo. We accept payment domestically by check, money order or PayPal. For orders outside the USA we accept international money order or PayPal. For the process involved visit our http://www.comiclettering.com website. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask."

That give's me a pretty good idea on how to budget for the logo. Blambot is (in my opinion) probably the best at what he (Nate Piekos) does, and I'd love to have my logo designed by him. I still might. But, I could put $350 into getting some pages inked or lettered - and get a pretty nice logo by Lithium Pro.

I think I'll send Lithium Pro my logo info and see what happens from there.
