Backward Progress

Backward Progress
or: Deja Vu

The Tellos saga continues. I’d told Todd at the beginning that if he hit a spot where a scene had gone unassigned or became orphaned that I’d step in. Sure enough, someone had to back out so I’m plugging the hole.

I wouldn’t show pages but the old “bad guys conspire against the good guys” scene is hardly a spoiler. Thumbs are done at 2x3, layouts at 4.5x7 (50% of final art size) Next we flip the page, enlarge 200%, print on the back of the final page and trace off via lightbox. Thumbs are more purely math; Can I fit “X” story points into 3 pages? Layouts are where design and composition come in. In both instances I’m just blocking things out leaving actual details for the drawing/inking stages.

For those that haven’t seen it yet, take the time to visit

For those who have, other sections of the site are gaining new content, so... Wake the neighbors, call the kids, let everyone know to come on down.

Back to work.

Happy Trails,
Smitty
