A few months ago I drafted a small outline of a four page short story based on my experiences as a military brat, seeing my dad leave from time to time.
This past weekend, I started took those thumbnails and put pencil to paper to see how those layouts worked on the page. I ended up detailing the first page beyond what I thought I would.
I then blew through the next two with gestures, emphasizing the pace of the story.
There’s one page left to set up but I’m looking forward to sketching everything and then giving it some inks.
I’ll make sure to post the finished pencils and more process updates along the way color maybe (?). We’ll see.
