minicomics live– day 2, post 4

1:41 pm:  I now have ink on all the pages , and one is now finished enough to show you.  These are what I think of as rough inks.  Almost everything is there; the exceptions are some solid blacks and the final fills that will balance the pattern of light and dark over the page.  This is the point where I quit inking and leave the page to dry overnight before I erase out the pencils, make the corrections, and add those final inks.  In other words, this page is finished for the purposes of this challenge.

That’s a long-winded way of saying “Here’s page 3.”  Since this page had only two small skirt areas, it was a good place to see what the story will look like with the skirt spotted as a big black.  I like it, and I’ll eventually fill the rest of them in.  For now, you’ll see an x in the skirts on the other pages, which will remind me to ink them in after I erase. (Dragging an eraser through a solid black is a chump’s game.)  Anything you see hatched out with a few quick diagonal lines is something I’ve changed my mind about; I’ll remove it inthe correction phase.  Note the small changes I’ve made to the script.  I’m always finding words I don’t need after I really see the art.
