The Complete “Work In Progress” Line Art For My ‘Damania Recovery’ Webcomic Mini Series

2017-artwork-damania-recrovery-lineart-article-sketch

Well, since my ‘Damania Recovery’ webcomic mini series finished recently, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off all of the ‘work in progress’ line art that I scanned whilst making this mini series.

If I remember rightly, apart from a few small dialogue and art corrections [For example, the line art for the last two panels of the first comic mistakenly showed Rox using a smartphone… which is totally out of character for her] , there weren’t that many post-production changes to this comic. Unusually, most of the major changes (to the art, dialogue, panel layouts etc..) took place between my original plans for this comic and the line art that is included in this article.

You can click on each piece of line art to see a larger version of it, if it’s too small to read here:

The Complete “Damania Recovery” – All Six Episodes Of The New Webcomic Mini Series By C. A. Brown

Well, in case you missed any of it, I thought that I’d collect all six “episodes” of my “Damania Recovery” webcomic mini series into one easy-to-read blog post. You can find links to many other mini series featuring these characters in the “2016” and “2017” segments of this page too 🙂

This mini series was kind of an interesting one. I’d originally planned to make a ten-part mini series called “Damania Review”, where the characters give sarcastic reviews of various films, games etc.. although this idea didn’t work out that well. Even so, I felt like I should make two mini series this month (the other one can be read here).

Since there were six days left in the month and since I’d watched a couple of series of “Poirot” on DVD a couple of weeks earlier, I wanted to make a “cosy” detective mystery comic. Surprisingly, making and planning this mini series was actually more challenging than usual, despite it’s shorter length (and a giant continuity error I’ve just noticed!).

For example, the mini series was originally going to have a totally different ending (where the obvious suspect was the murderer). But, about two-thirds of the way through making the mini series, I suddenly thought of a much better and significantly funnier way to end the comic. Seriously, this mini series has one of the best endings I’ve written in a while.

Today’s Art (30th June 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the sixth and final instalment of “Damania Recovery” a six-part webcomic mini series, where Harvey gets to solve another case (albeit a traditional “cosy” mystery this time). If you’ve missed the previous parts, then stay tuned for a full retrospective later tonight 🙂

If you want to see some of Harvey’s previous cases, then they can be found here, here and here. Links to many other comics featuring these characters can also be found here.

Yes, I know that this comic is a borderline breach of the series’ “No ghosts” rule, but well, it seemed like too funny of an ending not to include. Especially when compared to my original plans for the ending (where the guy in the blue jacket from earlier in the comic was the murderer).
