Don’t Expect Perfection

Due to me working out the specifics of the second chapter, the week after next’s Swordmaster Odyssey update will likely be very minor. Probably three pages at most. That, and I wasted too much of last week playing video games. My own fault, really, I usually pick games to play during breaks that don’t last more than an hour a sitting. Great way to loosen up before starting the dreaded inking phase. But not when you don’t stop playing and never get around to inking. XD

On the first chapter, I decided “Hey, I’ll just script the chapter and worry about layout as I go.” Bad call on my part, which is why the early part of the chapter has a bunch of bland panels with off-model characters. In hindsight, the exact wording the characters use is unimportant to know beforehand. What is important is to know how they’ll say it, and what it will look like on the page. For chapter 2, I’m doing a rough version on index cards first and not worrying about dialouge specifics. All I really need to make sure is that there’s enough room in the panel for the character to say what needs to be said. :3
