The home stretch

Well I'm almost there with Spandex #1...kind of...
The art is done, and now I just need to wait and see if I'm going to get lottery funding to print it up... That's pretty much the final thing now - sorting out 'thank-you's' on the intro page (I have gone blank and forgotten who I need to thank) and if I get the funding I may have to put a lottery symbol on there or something. (If I don't get the funding, I will be using all my savings, uh-oh, don't tell my parents...)

However...I thought the art was all done...but I started going thru it all with a fine tooth-comb...and my goodness... so many little things to tidy up, and a couple of glaring errors that I'm glad I spotted. Scary. So still going over and over it, going slowly insane... I spent 5 hours on Monday night and 5 hours last night after work - it's very tiring! I mean, I think all comic creators go thru this towards the end, and it happened a lot on O Men, but Spandex is all colour, which is too expensive to print out. So I'm proofing black and whites and then spotting even more things online.
Oh and another moan - god only knows what's wrong with my Photoshop, but half my original files are now corrupt and have strange lines all over them! Thank god I've been saving Tiffs - so I'm not working on flattened Tiffs. So if Spandex becomes big and successful, I'm sorry but I don't have any layered Photoshop files to send people lol

Anyway, I'm sure it'll be worth it.......
