Tuesday 11th October 2011 - Rough Layouts
4 pages, still very much roughs, of what I've decided will be the subject of the next 3 or 4 weeks (read: 3 months of working on this instead of actual uni assignments) of work: The Battle of Hastings, decanted down into 4 pages.
Short self analysis:
Page 1: I like, Panels 1 & 2 need flipping round; they're the wrong way around.
Page 2: Mostly good, as with the rest of it, I need to sketch possible alternatives to panels to see if anything better crops up - apparently this is a weakness I need to address.
Page 3: Need some more alternative fight scene things to replace potentially weak panels 3 and 4. Panel 5 works, and panel 2 with the inset works, but the main #2 needs good reference.
Page 4: This whole page needs working over: Final panel I want as William with the crown/helmet thing on, holding his banner. I also quite like the idea of him turning the crown over in his hands. Other than that, i'm assured there are more succint alternatives to what i've done, which I now somehow need to hew out of nothing with little to no influence passing over from my already finished draft.
Harumph, I am confuse.
