We’re now at page five of Two Stories. The busses, and transit station were difficult to draft, and I’m hoping the pacing provided with the paneling will create a slow building feeling for the reader. There’s always been something great about the repetition allowed to suggest movement in comics, and the ability to have a slow tempo created through subtle actions. Hopefully this reads well.

For anyone interested in process, here’s the original rough for this page. On the last page, I’d chosen to extend out the page, which further shifted the panels, so you’ll most likely notice a shift in appearance from rough to final. This is the joy of having thumbnails, but also the creative freedom to shift to give more focus on moments you decide need it.

Finally, to promote the webcomic, I’ve added it to a few webcomics lists, one which you can help it rise in status by voting on it, called topwebcomics.com. I definitely plan to use project wonderful to advertise and gain more readership, but am waiting till I’ve got about 20-30 pages of the story posted. In the mean time, if you’re currently reading, and enjoying the story, you can help gain readers by posting about it on your twitter, facebook, or blog.
