Over on Livejournal there is a chap who goes by the moniker of "pvenables", who has put up this little website putting a challenge out to artists.

http://www.petervenables.com/22p/

There are various entries in there, along with my little effort appearing soon, I hope.
The reason I post here, is because I have tried to theme my panels in a Steampunk vein. I don't know how successful I always was, but there is certainly more than a tip of the hat to the idea.



I regret that Photobucket does not seem to want to let me post an image larger than 800px X 600px, but if you click on this picture you can see my frames at least this large.

Lastly, some of the ideas represented here are probably going to take one form or another in an upcoming Stempunk Australiana story that I will be posting online. (As mentioned here.)

Now that's a fine little challenge and resource.  I've been looking for somthing to spur me into learning how to use my tablet.  This could be it!

I VERY much recommend it.

I can see my technique improve, if nothing else, as the panels go along.

But even more than that, on certain panels (Depth, L-shape, Side light or Top, Reflection, 3-Stage, Contrast) I was forced to use layouts and presentations that I had never been brave enough to try, or hadn't even recognised as distinct ideas.

You really learn heaps doing it.

Thanks, Smaggers!

Interesting to get some more background on the actual development of the frames, and to learn the whereabouts of the 'Original' of that cheat-sheet.
