So I am totally planning to do Dragon's Lair tomorrow (today), here in Austin. Pencils to the page at 5PM, and the fun don't stop 'till the last man drops!
Or at least until I finish my 24, anyway.
They say they got free wifi, so I'll see if I can't post a few updates as the game plays out. My plan of the moment is to thumbnail my 24, then see if I can't get my ligne claire on. Not sure if I'll go for ink or nice pencils. Nice pencils can be considered finish quality, right? It works for Adam Warren and Joe Mad...
I guess they'll have to be REALLY nice pencils...
Out of curiousity, is it considered cheating to think about a story, so long as you do not write or draw anything? As anyone can tell you, thinking ain't working, and lord knows I've got a half-dozen stories in my back pocket that I've been thinking about for years now, but so long as I don't do more than scribble a few doodles or write the occasional bullet-point, they don't amount to jack nor shit.
I don't plan to pull any of those out for tomorrow, but I am kinda having trouble not thinking about pink elephants (whup, see, now I want to do a story about pink elephants). I guess it's kinda hard for anyone to know if you're working your 24 off an idea you had the day before (or earlier that day, or an hour before starting), but is it considered bad play to plan ahead, at least upstairs?
I'm off to the race! Wish me luck!
