Well, I thought that I’d do my usual thing of showing off the “work in progress” line art for my recent Halloween comic.
If I remember rightly, most of the changes between the line art and the finished comic were visual changes rather than dialogue changes (although there are a couple of these, such as in the final panel of page 7).
This is mostly because I refined the dialogue in the time between planning the comic and drawing the line art, so most of the dialogue changes happened before the comic was made.
Still, there were quite a few visual changes. Most of these involved reducing the amount of blood in a few scenes (since it looked a little bit excessive) and, yes, this can be seen in the line art since I used red ink for the blood. The most notable example is probably in the third and fifth panels of page eight.
The most notable visual change is probably the cover, which I’d originally envisaged as a minimalist thing featuring silhouettes of the characters (with red fangs). But, this didn’t look that good. So, I had to spend quite a while adding lots of extra detail to the finished cover art digitally.
Anyway, here’s the line art (you can click on each piece of line art to see a larger version of it) Enjoy 🙂
