Here are the writing/layouts for pages 3-12. You will see that I do not have many actual drawings in yet. This stage is where I do the writing, and panel pacing is figured out as I go. This is what I do instead of a traditional script.
The images in the panels go in once I have the dialogue, pacing and events in place.
The art is servant to the story.
You may notice that 5 and 7, and 6 and 8 are presented together. This is because once I’d written page 5, I moved onto the next page, but realised I wanted them to do something else before I got to what was happening on the original page 6. So that became page 7 and another page was written and slotted in.
