Lensman #1 roughs
On previous projects, I was always the writer so I didn’t bother making a script for myself. I’d just write and draw a page at a time with a general idea where I was going. Since this was my first time drawing from someone else’s script, I wanted to make sure the writer and I were both in tune on how to pace out the pages. The quickest way to determine that was to sketch out a very small thumbnail of the whole comic to meter it out.
With that done, I felt comfortable roughing out the pages the way I normally did, streamlining the layouts as I advanced through the book. Everything resolved itself without a struggle, so I didn’t feel like it was necessary to continue doing thumbnails. This is the only rough I held onto from any of the Lensman comics, so it’s the only one I’m including in this collection.
