Still a bit ill, but feeling well enough today to get some work done on the next page before I hit the wall, as they say.
This one is what they call the money shot, folks. It's the beginning of a plot catalyst and I want it to be a gorgeous page.
So I'm taking my time with it.
When I was overcoming my reluctance to draw hands, I did a page of nothing but hands as a narrative device. Trying the same for backgrounds and environments.
I will repost during the week as the page evolves.
I need to go full range of grays on this. I want to blend the marker values by hand rather than digitally if I can. Also, placing of the text will be crucial.
If all goes well, I will be able to post the completed page during the week and move on to the next one by next Sunday!
