Page 16 - Look Out!

We're chugging along! Soooo close to being done with the first issue. I can't wait to hit the last page. And then get cracking on issue 2!

We get our first glimpse of the love of Ridley's life, the precocious and adorable Emma. Ridley was waiting to catch a sight of the first car he'd ever seen, but didn't count on setting eyes on Emma as well. We used a Panhard & Levassor model for our antique car - it would have been around in England about that time. That was probably the trickiest research that we had to do for the whole book. There aren't many reference shots around for this particular model, but we did find one that someone had restored, which was very lucky. They look like kind of a pain to drive. But Emma and her dad don't seem to mind.

And! Drama! No wonder the woodsman was so upset on the last page. Snatching the poor princess off her feet like that, HOW RUDE. Will the woodsman turn into a Man of Action? Is that dark silhouetted Scars really behind all this? Find out next time...on page 17!

Page 15 - First Glimpse of Scars!

See, we still do comics! :)

Lots has been happening over here at Chez Perpetual Flights. But, we're still plugging away on Beautiful Scars. Only a few pages left to show you! Wow!

I like this page a lot. Lots of action happening! We've got Ridley the daredevil on the lookout for whatever is coming over that hill, and our first glimpse of Scars in Maddie's imagination. Looks pretty frightening, doesn't he? Well, something is exciting the Woodsman, but you'll have to wait til the next page to see what's got him so upset...
