Exterior the Interior

City of Cards C2.28: HERE!

Continuing my revisions, here's an updated panel for Chapter One page 12:

The real goal is to get my interior environments to feel as polished as my exteriors. It's just a matter of practice and really, I can't tell you how many times I've tried to revise these office pages. One thing I always knew was that the dialogue was tight on the pages so I plan to space it out by adding a new page to spread out the dialogue (nothing new, just re-spacing the panels). Because of that, I need to add a second page to keep my page turns/spreads the same.

I'm actually really looking forward to the reworking of these pages. It's going to be a lot more involved than I'd originally anticipated but I think the results will be solid.

So quick, here's a status report of where I'm at:

Chapter One: Revision stage: 7/??? panels penciled.

Chapter Two: Initial stage: Inks and tones COMPLETE. Booyah!

Chapter Three: Initial stage: 14/43 pages penciled, inks started.

I actually have about 5 more pages of pencils finished on Chapter Three done in various forms, so we're in good shape on that. Less than two months till Chapter Three starts. Expect big changes.
