Filler: Unused Panels

Deleted scenes and outtakes
Some panels are relatively easy to complete, and from time to time I will render three or four different versions of a panel before settling on the most successful form. However panels which require extensive post-work in Photoshop or Illustrator can take a lot of time and effort, so it's always frustrating when I don't end up using such a panel. Here we see a few from Chapter 3.

Most of the time I don't really regret the decision to redo a panel, because the effort I made the first time around really pays off in making the second attempt more successful. But it would make me happier if I could get it right in the first place. The key problem with redoing panels is that if I'm coming close to my upload deadline, it becomes a luxury I can't really afford. Thus most of my unused panels from chapter 3 are from pages which I completed before my cyst started giving me a hard time. The cyst really cut into my productivity, and the last few pages were thrown together only hours before they were scheduled to go online - this is why page 29 had so many cheats in it. If I had had a buffer of two or three pages, which I prefer, then I would have taken to time to fix those errors.

I've written an article for Comixpedia on the relationship between Science Fiction and Fantasy. It's not entirely boring.

Oooh, pretty clouds outside!
