Ah, Jump Cannon... a character that has been with me for a while. He was supposed to make his debut in an anthology at SDCC this year, but unfortunately, the book fell apart and was never published. Too bad too, there were some seriously talented people working on that book (not sure why I was there) who did some great stories with some REALLY fantastic artwork. Alas, it was not to be *sigh* Any ways, I do have a 10 page story done with the characters you see above, full colour. It was the first comic work I've done, and I really caught the bug. I'm itching to do another story. I have an idea for a much BIGGER Jump Cannon story as well as an idea for something entirely different. I'm hoping that a version of this 10 page story might end up in something else that I'm working on for next SDCC. We'll see how it goes; one never knows with these things.
This was the first sketch I did where the character started to come together. Little did I know that the monkey drawing would become the inspiration for the villain of the story...
Krueger, the villain that will probably appear in more than just this one story... of course, he may be in a different form for the next story.
Even in the script I wrote, these guys were wearing Devo hats. I'm not sure why.
The first full figure I did of Jump. I have this bad habit of only drawing heads when I'm first designing a character.
In a future post maybe I'll post some thumbnails from the story...
