This is actually all the preliminary sketches I did for characters. That’s it. I just jotted down a basis for a design and worked from there. I realized afterwards that I’m pretty inconsistent concerning the design of the main characters throughout the story, but since they are just two, I don’t think it causes much trouble in the reading process. All secondary characters were made straight into the final page.
And as far as the actual pages I did these chicken-scratches just to get a general feel of the page, made all my layout decisions on them, and then moved straight to the final page.
While working on this, the rest of the guys at the studio started making jokes at some point. I think my favorite was…”You are starting to resemble an office furniture”. Another thing they kept telling me while working was that based on my overloaded visual approach to the story I hardly acted like someone who’s short on time. I totally understand why it might looks that way, and when I tried to explain it, the only answer that made perfect sense for me at the time was that Mark Twain quote…
“Please excuse the size of my letter, but I didn’t have enough time to write a shorter one.”
Oh and, If any of you happens to be at San Diego Comic-Con, drop by the Flight booth and say hi!
