I thought I’d just share a quick graphic novel update with everyone. I’m making good progress so far and I’m managing to meet my weekly targets. However, the schedule is fairly relaxed at the moment since I’m using this stage of the development process to experiment a little with colour and layouts, etc. Currently I have 106 very sketchy looking pages that look a bit like this…
I’m hoping to start working on finished pages by December. I do have a few pages that look more like the first image in this post, but they are still work in progress and there’s a fair bit of tweaking to do. A lot of the dialogue needs a good deal of work too. The basic text is in place so that I understand what’s happening on each page but it needs more developing to make it flow nicely!
I hope to do more detailed updates soon which explain more specific parts of my process but its early days as yet and I’ve still got a lot to learn! Overall I’m pleased with the story, the payoffs and the character development. Also, I think there’s a nice balance of humour and action (insert sci-fi gun fight noises here.) Well, that’s it for now; let me know if you have any questions or if you wish to share some advice with me. It’s certainly been educational so far!
Thanks for reading!
