Remember in my previous post, where I was really happy with myself on the final result of a panel...? well, carma has bitten me on the arse, because THIS proposed cover for the next issue (below left) isn't working for me... and I only just realised it after inking the f#!king page... Well, that's what I get for being cocky a few days ago.
I realised that the proposed cover idea (above left) is too similar to the previous issue#3 cover (above right)... You know, similar street-level point of view of the protagonist in a crowd, etc. Even though I know that the colours and arrangement on this new cover are different, I just feel like I'm falling back on muscle memory and not really trying.
But that's ok, because I've already pencilled in another cover (below), and I recon it'll be a ripper (IF I can pull it off).
As you can see it'll be a very dense and complicated scene, but I'm hoping the payoff in the end will be worth it. Watch this space.
