dcr3_script_page_21Two pages in one day? How does that happen, you ask?

Preparation, preparation, preparation. Oh, and getting all of the previous page done during the work session that began on the fourth. I wrapped that around 0500 and decided to go to bed rather than work up a blurb and post the page. Still, I managed to get another page chunked out in a relatively brief period of time – less environment work, less line art, cleaner inks (the inks for 3.20 were a mess)… and today was an on day.

It happens. For awhile I thought it was a booze related thing and chalked it up to the troughs of a ten year hangover, but odds are it goes back to my teens – I’ll be on for a day or two or four, then I can’t be arsed to do a fucking thing for a day, sometimes two – and when I try to fight against type and get something done on an off day, it takes longer. A lot longer. Two or three or four times longer, and apparently alcohol has nothing to do with it. There’s a possibility it’s another diet or lifestyle factor, and that’s something I’m starting to look into the old-fashioned way.*

Until that’s sorted, hey – an on day. I’ll take it. I could use more like it.

One major script deviation – Jason’s reaction in panel five was O_O in every single draft, up to and including the final. In context, such a reaction makes absolutely no sense – hence the change to “?”. Jesse (apparently) knows what’s about to happen.

So do I, for once. Stay tuned!

* Change something, see what happens. If good keep if bad revert. Repeat as often as necessary.
