Yesterday I started working on some pages of pencil samples, settling on Spider-Man vs Electro. However, after a poor but serviceable first two panels, things went to ruin with the third panel and I gave up while I tried to figure out what else to draw.
Got up this morning set to start again when the council turned up to fix my living room window...which is about a foot away from where I draw. Needless to say, lost another morning to that but decided to use the afternoon to draw a replacement panel for the Jock #2. As discussed over a few drinks this weekend, it wasn't so much the art as the unimaginative park I designed for the panel that bugged me. Even though it was pointed out that bugs me but not the reader as it establishes the fact that this is in a park, I knew I'd inevitably redraw it.
As a result, here are the two versions of the panel. I think the original is more obviously a park than the second but the latter keeps Johnny in the shadows more and keeps the group within the trees more, as Rol's script asked for.
Hopefully back to drawing properly tomorrow but already I know my sister's bringing my nephew around so I'm bound to have my time eaten...
