Norm, Cate and I met up a few weeks ago to discuss the scene where Josh meets the bullies. We needed a new approach to the scene, as the old way wasn’t working.
We sat in a cafe and threw some ideas around; in the end, we’d come up with this.
The idea was to have a number of tall panels with a continuous background, and different scenes playing out at different times.
Here’s my rough sketch, where I’m working out the body language and facial expressions of the characters.
…then I used the rough as the basis for a cleaner pencil sketch.
