This week was my first round penciling back into my layouts. Here’s a few progress shots in no particular order/configuration.
Thoughts so far:
I’m really happy that the entire story does not take place in the shop, because holy dang do those scenes take some time to work out. Harlow’s turned out to be super fun to draw. He’s suitably squashy and stretchy, although sometimes when I’m tired and can’t draw circles good, I really resent his goggles.
Meanwhile, learning to handle Evan’s shapes has been like pulling teeth. I tweaked his design so that the baggier parts of his sleeves stop at his elbows - it really helped break him up a bit more logically. It’s also way more practical for him. I think giant cuffs would get in his way.
Tony: Alright, alright. I got stung. I got stung bad. I couldn’t stand. I couldn’t walk.
Steve: We were two miles from the house. We were scared and alone. We didn’t think we could make it.
Tony: I was in too much pain.
Bucky: And I was tired from digging a huge hole!
Steve: And then Bucky remembered something…
Bucky: I’d seen this thing on the Discovery Channel.
Bruce: Wait a minute, I saw that, on the Discovery Channel. About jellyfish, and how if you… Eww! You peed on yourself?
Natasha, Rhodey: Eww!
Tony: You can’t say that! You don’t know! I thought I was going to pass out from the pain. Anyway, I tried, but I couldn’t bend that way. So…
Clint, Bruce, Rhodey: Eww!
Bucky: Yeah that’s right. I stepped up! He’s my friend and he needed help. And if I have to I’d pee on any one of you. Only, I couldn’t… I got the stage fright. I wanted to help, but there was just too much pressure. So, so I turned to Steve.
Steve:[moan] Buck kept screaming at me. Do it now, do it, do it, do it, do it now! Sometimes late at night I can still hear the screaming.
Bucky: That’s cause sometimes I scream it through my wall just to freak you out.
Rhodey: Maybe there’s someone you can talk to.
Tony: Yeah like who? There’s no group for people like us.
