Vote Incentive: First Draft of 358
As I said Wednesday, I completely redrew 358 since I wasn’t happy with it. You can see the pencil sketch of the original page as today’s voting incentive on TopWebComics. Since the comment box on TWC tends to cut off after a certain point, I’ll explain some of my reasons here.
I decided I’d rather have Gara immediately regret using the spines and try to catch the pirate before she dropped to the deck. Additionally, I didn’t like the sudden interruption of Geilen’s reaction shot. Plus, all three reaction shots at the end of the redrawn page build up nicely to the first panel of the next page.
