I’d planned to start the next scene in the second half of this page. But then I reminded myself that this is my comic, and there is no deadline (apart from my death, I guess) and I can drag it on as much as I want … And actually I should drag it on for the sake of better storytelling. Maybe I’m still a bit stuck in the mode from the end of Driftwood where I was racing against time and had to cram as much as possible into each page.
Anyways, it always hurts to erase sketches, so I take crappy photos of them every time I have to do it, so I can remind myself later that it really was worse before. Here’s the first version of the end of this scene, all crammed into less than the space of panel 2 above:
To my defense I might point out that I drew it when the only table I had here was a couch table that was too low for a normal chair and too high for sitting on the floor …
Yet another reason for the lack of updates this past month is that I’m hostage to the weather. I’m supposed to be living in my trailer in the countryside right now, but I’d have to be extremely badass to do that now. And while I am indeed quite badass, I’m also lazy. So now I’m staying in the city, waiting for the summer (because spring is probably #§$%ed at this point already …). And only yesterday I finally got a proper table here so I can draw!
