Metsuke gets props for having the best establishing shot, and CrazyDiamond has the best action. First 4 panels of Hangman's really did it for me, though, so he gets the click.
I just ran out of time 1st page took me longer than I though. not sure if i'm outta practice when it comes to sequentials or if I'm just a slow penciller.
This challenge was kind of an eye opener for me. Because we were given specific source material to improve upon it had already set the standard that was to be beat. If forces one to be confronted by their own technical ability. I did sort of leave these pages to the last minute as I tend to do but that wasn't what defined this challenge for me.
I came to a point where I was drafting out final pages after I had constructed my roughs (on a separate page as I do) and I felt this pressure in my head. It was like the process of drawing was a chore rather than an enjoyment. So I just said to myself "screw it, just draw and see what comes out." Sort of like freestyle drawing. I knew I wasn't going to be able to match Hangman's technique so I may as well enjoy myself. So I popped on some Def Leppard and just drew whatever came out. And I gotta tel ya, it was a hell of a lot of fun doing it that way. It made me realise what I value in not only my own drawings but what I value when I look at other people's drawings.
So yeah. I feel a heck of a lot better about myself as an artist after this challenge. And know that the best motivation to keep drawing is to keep it enjoyable. ^_^

Crap...I feel like I would have finished my second page had I listened to some Def Leppard. Then again the only albums I have of theirs are the lame new albums
