One challenge I’ve found to working digitally is knowing when to stop. The medium lends itself to infinite revision; it’s as easy to go back in and fix one little line as it is to eat the first potato chip in the bag.
This page was the first I completed, and while I did go back and redraw a couple faces that diverged significantly from the ones the characters later evolved, I’d really like to redo the entire page. I can honestly barely stand to look at it.
Of course, I’d like to redraw all the pages, and have no doubt that, when I finished, I’d want to draw them all again. A somewhat arbitrary line needs to be drawn, or the story will never get told. So this was the state of page 10 when I decided it was time to come to terms with my vast and varied imperfections and move on to Chapter Two.
