"One bang and the cemetery population doubles"
T he Black Diamond Detective Agency. The colour on Sadie's face needed to be pristine, so I didn't want a lot of sketching on the actual art paper and tended think about her in the roughs more than I would all the other details. I was also worried about crowding in these panels. While I haven't solved the problems in the sketch, I've established what those problems would be and made the top panels a little taller to accommodate all the parts.
In the sketch you can see where I worked out the dialogue in the margin. Having boiled it down to its shortest possible length I'd then shift it into the spaces where it needed to go. As I said in an earlier post, the lettering would always be done first and the pictures made to fit around it.
