Well, as usual, I thought that I’d show off the “work in progress” line art for my latest webcomic mini series.
If I remember rightly, there were slightly more dialogue changes between the line art and the finished comics than usual in this mini series. Most of these changes can be seen (in a scribbled-out form) in the “late night TV” comic, mostly because I’d originally planned to include comments about censorship and “British prudishness” (which I changed to “old-fashioned prudishness” in the finished comic since it seemed a little odd/redundant in context).
The third comic also had a dialogue change too. Originally, I’d planned to show Derek ranting about political criticism of videogames (in a troll-like fashion) but I was worried that, if people hadn’t seen the series before, they might not understand the characters or that it was satire. So, in the finished comic, I changed this dialogue to cartoon-like symbolic profanity (eg: &*%$!! etc..).
Likewise, the last comic in this mini series contains a scribbled-out line of dialogue (which originally read “Nonsense, I’m sure the government…”, I think).
As usual, you can click on each piece of line art to see a larger version of it if it’s too small to read here.
