Ever since I made the decision to finish the rest of the book offline, it’s as if a huge weight has been lifted off of me.
You see it is critical that this book function well as a unit, and that every part of it works. The trouble I ran into (and have run into in the past) with putting things online, is that once a page/chapter is posted, I get this feeling of finality. As if, now that I’ve posted it, I can’t change it. I’m stuck with what I did.
By taking the book offline, I’m able to make mistakes in private and fix them on my own time. I’ve already spotted pages in issue #1 and #2 that I want to go back and make changes on to bring them up to speed with the rest of the book.
As far as where I’m at right now, I’m heavy into the writing phase of the rest of the comic. I outlined and plotted out the whole book before I started, and since then I’ve been making tweaks as I find better ways to resolve the story. As far as the actual writing is concerned, I’ve been working one issue at a time.
Moving forward, I intend to complete the entire script for the rest of the book before moving on to the art. Currently, I’m working on the third draft of the third issue and it’s really starting to take shape.
In the mean time, since I’m not working on pages, I will be working out character and set design for the upcoming issues.
That’s all for now, check back later for the next production blog!
