Yup! Been a while.
And my awesomestest awesome friend has done his version of the rats: GO GO GO
Here, have some rats:
(third picture is old, from the other blog … but I figured I’d include it anyway =)
First, I think the name’s changing from “Vet” to “Of Rats in Darkest Corners.” I’m still not 100% sure I like the title, but for now, I’ll stick with it, until I come up with something better. One thing I’m pretty sure, the title will have “rat” and “corner” in some form or other in it, because I don’t think I can come up with more fitting associations for this story.
Well, I’m still not sure whether I’ll have time and patience to do a sequential art version of it. But I did finish Ch.2 today (yey!). Though I’m still not sold on it. I went quite deep into the POV character’s motivations, and it may be too early for that. I am pretty happy with how the motivations turned out (okay, I’m very happy), but the way they’re laid out might not be so effective either. I’ll definitely keep the first part of Ch.2, but I might use the rest as background information, and re-write the back end of it with a little more show than tell.

Aaaand … let the sketching commence:
(this is actually an older sketchbook page, but it’s a good start, I think… plus, I kinda dig the style of the bottom left sketch, so I might try to develop it for a potential comic)
