Once you stop working on something for a while, there is nothing more frightening than sitting down to a blank page with intent on working on it again.
I admit I haven't made as much progress on my comic as I would have liked so far, but I have made a little. I wouldn't call it a second draft, but I did a full pass through the first draft and made some changes. I also removed a few scenes that I felt were dead weight.
I also removed all the issue breaks. It's now just one long story. I'm not planning on publishing it (on paper at least) so I'm rethinking a lot of things about it.
*Tradd was nice enough to answer a couple questions about his experience working on Legends of the Dark Knight for DC. And that process has me very intrigued. They produce their digital comics like traditional US comic pages, however, when they release them digitally, the pages are cut in half horizontally. The result is an iPad friendly (4:3) page size that can still be recompiled to print like a standard comic.
I think I'm going to keep this in mind when I do an actual second draft to my story. Since I'm working digitally, I'll probably draw them at 4:3 to begin with, but I'll plan on using less panels per page, and keeping room for slightly larger dialog balloons, so they will still be legible 2 per page.
Aside from that I've been working on a new design for my antagonists:
I was never happy with the first design, but I think this is getting there! There's a coat that will go over this that I haven't worked out yet. Then I need to workout some alterations to this for the other 3 main soldiers.
I still have a number of other characters I need to design as well, but at some point I need to look them all over and make sure they're all working together. And I need to make sure I have a consistent style.
It'll just take some practice, but it is tough as infrequent as I've been working on this.
