Chapter 21 was finished on Saturday morning. This means I did 18 pages in 5 days. More details below the pic
Needless to say my private life is dying (as I draw all this on my personal time).
Once I master this production pipeline, I hope I can have longer nights, work out again at least, then maybe even have a social activity !
I got those scott robertson books near my bed, hardly red 10 pages in a few month. I definitely want to dig in when I can. I wonder when though…
Also in chapter 21 I did something new. Since I was fast enough, I decided to keep aside one page I had a real good feeling with.
1-I wanted to bring it to an illustration level of detail and see where I’m at now. It’s like measuring your FTP (Funtional Threshold Power, cyclists will know what I mean).
2-And even not for measuring my progress, I wanted to attack the topic of detailing and doing illustration again, now that I have been focusing so much on drawing fast…
3-Also a this allows me to feed my patrons with extras. This is for all patrons, the only pledge I made is the 1$ and I’ve not charged anybody yet. So basically for now you can be my patron for free. This will keep at least until I reach 100 patrons.
4-Wanted to remove some dust from my youtube channel, see if I can bring readers to follow me there also…
Just a little post for the records, chapter 20 is now done.
It’s the shortest chapter (6 pages). I just felt it had to end there. So I’m already on chapter 21 which is 12 pages long.
Chapter 9 begun releasing on the net, so chapter 10 goes early access on patreon.
I’m releasing it one page a day on webtoon and facebook, but you can already read it all in one go here.
For the youtube update. I timelapsed chapter 18 page 1 painting process.
wait ??? Chapter 18 ?!!
Well yeah as you saw in previous updates, I decided to stop publishing until webtoon catches up, but I went into painting frenzy so I’m way ahead of chapter 9 as I’m publishing it now.
I hope you enjoy the video, it’s always a lot of extra effort to get (even such a simple timelapse) it done.
About the patreon update, I was not happy with the rewards, I decided to simplify it until I get something better. So until then there is only the 1$ reward !

So in this chapter I tried to focus on widening the field of view and always putting a bit of background or at least a bit of mood in every panel.
It’s not the first time I decide to do so, but sometimes you forget your resolutions !
Also tried another approach, this time I thumbnailed all the moods, lights and colors, then I rendered all the details at once.
This is worth 4 days of work (1 days = approx 6 hours that go around my actual day job which has nothing to do with drawing).
Also This is the first chapter thought as a digital content. It is meant to be read on a phone in portrait mode. So One panel per line, two in a pinch… Since it’s done this way I can barely put more than 2 panels per page. And this is where the magic happens ! 1 or 2 panels per page means bigger Panels that are more synthetic than a lot of micro fragments. It gives more place to narration and I can work on a panel longer than when I still have 6 to draw to finish my page…so this is a very cool change. Also it simplifies storyboarding as composition gets simpler.
I still want WASTE to be printable so I keep in mind not to have a panel across two pages…but that’s the only constraint.
