I’ll have to extend this page since I really didn’t give Lee Dorrian enough credit. Maybe I’ll extend this…But I’ll have to do that after I finish the next chapter. Being able to scan the whole page in one shot is jsut awesome btw.
I can remember singing the chorus to “Disposable Heroes” in assembly with Ramon Crespo. Fun times. This was before Load came out and Metallica wasn’t the force that they were. Although to us Metallica was kinda watered down.
Ramon got me into Metallica by taping me Master Of Puppets and is one of the reasons that I drew this page….
A page from the comic. Which has its own http://inventingthesteel.tumblr.com/
I’m actually going to redo this…I don’t like the ground enough to want to re do it….
this is one of the reasons that I created my comic Inventing the Steel. I created it because I have been around too many people that have no fuckin idea what Heavy Metal really is. When you are calling Gun N’ Roses Metal, that shows me that you don’t really know what Metal is, hell you don’t even know what hard Rock is. So I wanted to do something about this and I thought that I could take my comic that I did for English class and share it with people.
If you haven’t seen it yet.
Feel free to comment or question. The comic has its own tumblr, but you don’t really need to follow it as I’ll be sharing stuff here as well.
Finally got off my ass and did some scanning. This is what the pages actually look like before I retouch them for coloring.
I really want to redo the splash page of Inventing the Steel, because I don’t like how the bricks just fade off into nothingness and I think the page could stand alone as an illustration…and I think it would be a really cool poster to have. But I don’t know if I could sell them because its an image of Black Sabbath. And I’d hate to have to deal with Sharon Osbourne. Only Bruce Dickenson can stand up to her wrath.
So some of you know that I’m working on a comic about the heavy metal genre called Inventing the Steel; what you don’t know is that I have created a page just for the comic so that someone can actually read it pretty easily by scrolling down. So please check it out and if you like what you see spread the word : ) Thank you.
