Maelstrom 1 p20

Another one that’s been reworked to accommodate the modifications in the scenario. Rarely in comic books, do we leave so much on the “cutting room floor“. Especially when working as a writer / artist team, once the scene is written and put down to paper by the artist, there’s not much we can afford to change. Since I do it all myself…

And don’t be surprised if I go back to what you’ve read already and change it around. That’s the beauty of web publishing, you can go back and fix stuff indefinitely. I often wish I could do that with printed book. So, as a reference point, here’s the very first version of the last page combined with this one…

For the second half, here are some pencils. Take note of the last panel, it will be reused later on in the story…

But for the final version, I had to redo a few panels. Here’s the first one done with the aid Manga Studio’s perspective tool…
