Thank you so much. I don't actually use pencils for the comic pages but, rather, pen and ink. More specifically, I use Hunt-102 and Hunt-108 knibs along with Strathmore Permanent Waterproof India Ink. I just prefer the charms of old traditional tools like the knib over new advancements like the Wacom tablet.
Here's a sizable update of pages from Issue 3 of "Opey the Warhead". I wonder if they have Dr. Phil's for living nuclear warheads.
I hope you all enjoy. Thank you for your time and comments.
Here is the last part of Issue 3 of "Opey the Warhead".
Thanks to all those of who have read or commented on the comic.
I've already read the rest of issue 4, I'm liking how this is developing. The writing is witty and has a truckload of quirkiness to boot and the illustrations are reminiscent of the greats of comics, from Robert Crumb to Goseki Kojima.
My sketchbook, if you really want to see it...
"Picasso is a painter, so am I;... Picasso is Spanish, so am I; Picasso is a communist, neither am I." - Salvador Dali
Are you serious? A warhead? This is the main character? That will never fly...lol
Who in their right mind would buy this?
but the art is great...

People buy Marvel everyday. Hard to believe with the kind of drivel they produce that doesn't have a 1/15th of the heart that this possesses.

Thus, begins the fourth issue. Thank you kindly, folks, for all the comments and readership.
I'm like a boy in a land of giants here on DA.
Here is the cover and first page of the comic:
Richard, I'm humbled by your comparisons to Crumb and Kojima. And thanks for all the kind words.
Opey's just a labor of love for me. I just can't seem to quit on it.
d'aww baby opey.
say,if you're drawing this without any pencils beforehand,i'm triple impressed. don't you even lay out the panels before?
Hey Zac! You should put out a print edition of Opey (if you haven't already)! I hate reading long-form comix on the interwebs. There you have it, I'm a hypocrite.
Buy my book at IndyPlanet!
It does exist in print in a self-published format, although I'm tweaking a few small details on the Opey Collection. It should be available for purchase soon.
Unbelievable art you produce there.
Here's two more pages of the fourth issue of "Opey the Warhead".
Gasp! Look at that naked Opey the Warhead. Child nudity. My, oh my, what is the world coming to?
Here's two more pages of Issue 4.
Any comments would be appreciated.
These are two more pages of Issue 4 of "Opey the Warhead".

Sorry I haven't commented in a while. I kind of lost the whole month of July there to bloody real life. Issue 4 is great. I love Opey's dream sequence at the start - it was so lyrical, well paced. Great stuff! Keep up the updates and let us know when a print copy can be bought!

I'm grateful for you guys reading Opey. The comic is a real work of love for me. I've always loved telling stories and Opey's been a comic that's been sitting in my head for quite some time.Sorry I haven't commented in a while.

That is such a great character. It's just weird enough. Lovely art as well.
Hey! It looks like I forgot to subscribe to this thread. :3 Of course I do read it first on dA, it's still nice to see it here too. And it reads easier because of the layout.
Thanks, FV. It's great seeing you here on CA, too.
Thanks. I've admired your work on DA, so I'm honored by your comment.
