The Eldritch Age - volume 3 - page 9

Had a bit of fun squeezing the name of my friend Phil Rood, who's book 'Rock and Hard Place' is a) awesome and b) available to order from Amazon (just see the ad on the side of the page).. So, do that?

So, I'm super excited about where the story is going but I have to admit, I'm reaching a plateau with the art. Here's the thing: I use Illustrator to turn my inks to vectors which are easier to fill and color. The problem is, while my art is getting better on paper, it's to the point where the translation to vectors ruins it or at the very least doesn't translate the improvements. Anyways, I have to look at changing methods in a way that won't kill me too much on production time. Here's the problem though: I can't change art style mid-volume. It'd look weird if ever I want to publish a print version of The Eldritch Age. So I'm stuck doing another 12 pages in a style that is increasingly frustrating to me.

Thankfully, Volume 4 offers both a switch in volume and setting which will allow for a smooth transition to another style using different tools.
