Behind the Scenes of a Bells & Whistles - 3

Having put down ink outlines in the last post, I now move on to filling in solid areas and penciling in dialogue. Again, nothing's written in stone (or inked), so I'll inevitably move things around, and condense dialogue as I go.

The full page after all the solid areas have been filled in. The dialogue for the first two panels is inked, and the rest of it is in place.

I felt that the pencil dialogue was a little too low to the aristocrat's hat. As the pencil dialogue is only really to help me determine the width, it's no problem to move straight to inking it in a new place.

I was still toying with the idea of having Barbisol sing "With a Little Bit o' Luck" at this point. Yeah, I know.

This strip marked the debut of the Baby Monkey! Ridiculously cute, and typically perched upon other monkey's heads, he's quickly become a staple in my sketchbook (he'll almost certainly be featured in the 2006 Prospectus for ChriGov Industries). You can see that even this late in the game, I'm wondering if he should have a tail or not, and how exactly it should be drawn.

Next up: Scandal!
