It was a working weekend, but I snuck away from work just long enough to...do a different kind of work! Last time, we left off with this mock-up:
I wasn't quite happy with it, so I reworked it a bit:
And I used a combination of the 2 mock-ups to make the final page. I re-positioned the pointing hand in panel 1 so that it is a bit more dominant. But now I think I need to add some more black so that the nitre stands out some more.
I made sure that the footprints in panels 2 and 3 line up a bit better.
Panel 4 is meant to evoke the grim reaper. Not only is C indicating where the victim died, but it also signals that the end is coming for M.
Panel 5 has another symbolic "gotcha!"
"But, Cej, where did their flashlights go?"
Cej: "Quiet, you!"
