I have started a number of webcomics over the years and most have died before the 12 issue mark. That makes me pretty proud to present BBH #12.

Over at Action Figure Cinema we have finished the 59 part Buzz/Britney/Gohan storyline! Amazing! Right away we have plunged into another hero story, this one hand drawn. "The Heroes of Audioland!" It has a very different and more dynamic drawing style than Blackberry House and should be a lot of fun! Start the new story Start the new story here.

I have been working to incorporate more backgrounds into the pictures.  This scene takes place in the library in BBH.  I have been using a mechanical pencil, but I don't think it is soft enough to leave a dark enough line for what I want.  Somewhere around here I have a box of artist pencils.  I need to find them I think.  Well, the education continues!

On Saturday, Action Figure Cinema will reach the final strip in the saga of Buzz Lightyear and Britney Spears.  Issue #60 of AFC will begin the following day with a new short story.  I hope you will check it out!

The borders are  larger on this one so I'm linking to it rather than posting the image.

 Welcome to those who are joining this new community.  Go back through the community to catch all the comics or visit the website at http://blackberryhouse.comicgenesis.com .

 The panels on the door are carved in relief and were inspired by similar ones made during the Renaissance.  The panels tell the stories from the Bible.  They are:  1. The expulsion from Eden, 2. The great flood, 3. The destruction of Phaoroh's army at the Red Sea, and 4. The warning to Balaam.  The lower panels may be revealed in the future.

The mansion is named Blackberry House and is the source of the comic's name. Of course the overgrown bushes all over the property are what gave the house its name. In a sense its history will play almost as another character in the story. The house itself is modelled on the Winship Mansion in Wakefield, Massachusetts, with some significant changes in floor plan as will be revealed. For more information (or to purchase if you are so well endowed financially) go to http://www.winshipmansion.com/

One of the big reason's I'm doing BLACKBERRY HOUSE is because I am forcing myself to draw in an attempt to get better. I've been at the same quality level for years and I want it to improve. So I'm going to try a few different things over the next few weeks. First, I'm going to start doing the strip in pencil. I need to get that improved before I take on the role of inker and colorer as well. Both of those require different skills and they cover up the initial drawing. I will also be changing up the panels and point-of-views to get some practice there. As I am exploring my abilities, your comments are always welcome!

We are going to start seeing more of the personalities of the characters emerge as well. Hopefully you will be able to tell them all apart!

You now see all 6 of the regular cast-mates.  There will be more, but they will be less influential to the story.  It should be noted that no-one is safe in this comic.  They may die, go insane, join the Beatnik movement, or anything else.  In fact, I am promising that at least one character will be gone on my birthday, September 20.  I will be posting a poll in a month or so asking you the reader to vote one of the cast-mates out of the house.  That person may die tragically or simply move away.  One never knows.  So stay tuned!

Seeing the skin colored markers online I find I don't like them very much. They don't provide good coverage and the skin is blotchy. So I'm going back to the old Crayolas until I come up with something better.

This strip I'm using preshaped speech balloons that are in my editing program. Unfortunately they don't come with borders and I can't figure out how to give them borders so there will be solid colors for a while.

On Monday you will meet the rest of the main cast!

I had to completely redraw panel #2 because of a major goof with the markers. When I originally wrote the script I didn't like Lisa much, but I'm liking her more and more as I draw her. The comic is going to be updated on Monday and Friday.
