About a month ago, I tried out for a horror anthology book but it didn't worked out. Since I did some work on it, I thought it'll be interesting to post my process. This 8 pg story was written by William Harms (Impaler & Dead or Alive). I read through the script and layout all the pages.
Not very pretty at this stage. I just need to figure out how to arrange the panels and where to put the word balloons. After that, I start thinking about the characters and how I want to render the art to best fit the story.
Above is a two panel teaser that I whipped up. I tried to do it more painterly but it didn't feel solid enough. But I like the energy of the quick strokes. There's a certain chaos and madness to the line work which I thought would fit the story.
Below are the first two pages. Page one is probably the most finished. I was half way through page two when I got word (from the guy that put the anthology book together) that I didn't get the job.
It was a good experience working with someone else script. In the future, maybe I'll have another opportunity to work with Mr Harms on a different project.
