I draw official characters too, sometimes…every once in a while? Anyway just did a ‘Redraw’ of the scene Rouge introduces herself, or at least her pose and Chaos emerald (The rest of the background in the screenshot I found is all black basically anyway so whatever). Look a Chaos Emerald!
Fan question: “My question is that you know your lean that you do with the bat?”
JDM: “Oh, yeah.”
Fan: “Yeah. Is that like a personal add-on you do or is that part of the script?”
JDM: “No, that was…that was kind of a fuck-up. There was…when I first got the job, I remember looking at issue #100, I think and there was a frame of Negan kinda leaning back a little bit. And I remember doing it and I remember I did it in front of Andy and the look on his face was one of such…he was so confused by what I was doing…like truly, he was like “What the fuck is this guy doing?” that I liked it. Uhm…and I’m always trying to…if you’re an actor, hopefully worth yourself, and I hope that I am. Sometimes I’m not but I try to be all the time. Uhm…I try to keep the guys that I’m working opposite off-balance. Because we do every scene, you know, 30 times, you know, It’s never one and done. You gotta do their coverage, you gotta do my coverage, you gotta do wide-coverage and close-coverage and it’s crazy, so you do every scene 9 million times, uhm…and so I like to do something for every take just to keep my friends and co-stars on their toes otherwise you kinds get lazy and start to falling asleep in the middle of the scene and that’s not good for their performance, it’s not good for my performance. Uhm…and so that’s where actually the lean came from, because it was just so weird and disconcerting to have this guy fucking, you know talking to you like that it was just…and I got crazy reactions and that’s kinda where it came from. And now…unfortunately or fortunately that’s what Negan does! Yeah! Kirkman likes it. He’s like: jep…I’m gonna put that in some comic books!”
