I just finished penciling day two out of 7 for Jason Part 3. So far I’ve got 45 pages and I’m getting kind ofnervous about how long this will get.
To give you a glimpse to how I work it’s kind of like improve have know where I am going story wise and I know the beats I want to hit but I don’t have every little thing mapped out. I like to give. The characters the ability to banter and go on weird tangents.
For example in part 2 I never planned on Ghostface pulling a rubber chicken out of his sleeve. I always intended for him to pull out the bong but I had the idea that it would be funny it he could pull anything out of his sleeve so I went with it. Then I amused myself by drawing the chicken over and over again in the rest of the scene. It doesn’t add anything and it’s not the focus but it added a little extra fun to the scene.
Though the one down side is that you never know how long things will go on four which is problematic in terms of hitting deadlines and when it comes to printing costs. Additionally you have to be very careful to make sure that you’re not getting off track from the larger story or not being true to your characters for the sake of a joke.
Anyway that’s it for the moments. My hope is that I can get day three done before Christmas. We shall see.
