|The majority of requests I receive are for examples of the working process-- but examples of
thumbnails through to inks (which I have posted elsewhere) really only illustrate the technical
process of refinement as a rough sketch is 'polished'. A comparison between a page that
failed and the subsequent alternate might give another perspective on the thought process.
This page featuring the Flash and Atom is from Another Nail. Churning pages of pencils out on
a daily basis will inevitably be punctuated with 'off-days'-- not an excuse, a simple fact of life.
|The first page on the left, is pretty static because the Atom is so upright, when he should have
been reacting to the cold and wind (even though he shouldn't have been able to feel it within the
Flash's protective aura).
The second page, centre, was pretty near what I wanted except for the fourth panel which I had
attempted to recycle from the first page.
I changed panel four in the final version, making the Atom proportionately larger so he wouldn't
be lost against the flash.
|Another often queried page from Another Nail.
As the Flash speeds across the Multiverse,
passing through alternate realities, panel four
originally showed the THUNDER Agents fighting
Iron Maiden and her cronies but the THUNDER
Agents book, which was in the pipeline at the
time, fell through and panel four was redrawn to
make the characters unidentifiable.l
