What’s good: I’ve finished my first page and it doesn’t look half bad if I do say so myself. True I could have been more adventurous with the scene’s lighting and colours but I felt it wouldn’t hurt to go for something simple and clear in the opening panels as I find my feet. I went for a scheme of warm brown-oranges playing off cold blue-greys as representation of the clash embodied by Scratch herself – namely between human and machine – while I also deviated from my page plan adding an additional panel (the ear) to make it clearer that the voice is from a coms device, not her.
What’s bad: It took far longer than it should have. I have the excuse of spending time on the cover and having some fairly malignant formatting issues but the bottom line is that I need to be much faster in future if I want to stay on schedule :(
