October 7, 2008: I have page 22 penciled, inked and scanned. I just need to finish coloring and letter it. Hopefully, I can have it by the end of this week!
Original blurb: My wife and I decided it was best to go ahead and wind things down for Book 4. This is the second-to-last page of the issue. As you might have guessed, Brielle went to Carolyn's church, heard the Gospel preached and felt the need to make her decision to ask Jesus to forgive her sins, enter her heart and change her from within.
We didn't feel the need to show this because we already showed Carolyn's conversion earlier in the book. Now we will see what this means to Brielle as she takes on things from a new perspective.
Artistically, I was very pleased with this page. It captured the feel we wanted to portray and the lighting adds a nice dimension to it.
Oh, and that is a cameo from Cassie in Times Like This. She just seemed to fit in with the Austin scene somehow… :)
In other news, I don't think I can go into all the challenges my family and I have faced concerning my health over the last month. I have been in and out of the E.R. and even the hospital a few times. We are learning more and a gameplan is in the works. I'll let you know more when I know more. I do expect to finish Book 4 soon!
I loved all the comments from the last page. People really felt Brielle's pain and relief when she felt relief. That tells me we did our jobs as writers and artist. It is very rewarding.
