Went home for lunch and finished the opening scene of El Kid for the January issue:
I'm worried that I'm way overproducing. Here's the study:
It took me half the time, and in some ways the study is stronger, or certainly, good enough. Sigh. So, going backwards, here's the rough sketches for the layout, done over a week ago:
And here's the second page of sketches, done on November 8th:
I almost like the roughness of the sketches better than the damn colored washes. I always do this (and I suppose at this late date, it's ridiculous to think I would do anything different), but it's so exasperating. I really want to find a happy medium, where I can layout a rough storyboard, then execute it, quickly, say, within a day, into a finished product. Not three weeks for an unfinished product. Ha.
This was the problem on Mickey Free and here I sit, all these months later, trying to start fresh, but falling into the same old traps. Fate has been so cruel to this ADD lad. Gee, I wonder what old Baltasar has to say about this?
"A prudent man will think more important what fate has conceded to him, than what it has denied."
