My Comic, Issue two: page 4 and 5

I've been trying to get my second issue up and running, but I simply keep running into lazybonesitis. My schedule is supposed to be an issue a year and I am not looking too good this year. I've got around 11 pages roughed in so far, with the 12th page halfway there. But at this rate I'm not going to be able to make it in time to sell it at Wondercon (besides, I haven't even signed up for a booth in artists alley yet!).

Anyhow here's a few sketches of my process in trying to get pages 4 and 5 of the book to work.

This page took a lot of trial and error. I kept playing with the camera angle to make it as dynamic as possible when the reader lands on this two page spread. I didn't want it to look just like the final page of the first issue, with Bombgirl hanging onto dear life as the plane was crashing. So in this case, the composition, while in a similar perspective as the last issue, is now tilted up. I was trying to signal that Bomgirl has gotten more pro-active about her predicament. Here's a scan of the tighter sketch before I bring it to final.

That's it for today! Good night and God Bless.
