I had to check, because I started feeling like I've been pushing this whole "your family will be in danger" line a few too many times, but nope! I used in on page 37, but from my perspective, I've used it in an outline, my script, my revised script, and then when actually making the pages. I guess everything that's potentially repetitious kind of gets magnified when you're the one going through the creative process.
Speaking of repetition, I've been working that two shot, sitting at the table angle reeeeally hard, having used it on like 5 pages in a row, but sometimes repetition helps tell a story in a different way. I've been trying to show Malaya getting more uncomfortable with the conversation, but you know, it's also just a really useful angle when two people are sitting across from each other at a table. Not a whole lot of options there.
Drawing is hard, making comics is hard, and I have a sinus infection. Yay! But I'm learning a lot, and even looking back at my early pages, my art has already improved a lot. It's weird, because I think universally an artist has a hard time being happy with the quality of their work. Sometimes the best you can do is look back and just compare to where you used to be, because it's hard to see progress for what it is.
41 pages in, and I'm finally done with the majority of my exposition. Yay for me! Werewolf action on the horizon :). Also, I'm a few weeks away from page 50, and I'm going to try and find time to do that one in color. Color and I don't get along well, so pray for Mojo.
