Waterton Drawing and Reference Shots
I spent the morning inking a few panels. I struggled on the next half of the page, there are two large panels that have to convey a lot of information and I had particular images in mind. I got my camera and tripod out and did a bit of Waterton, feverish with the 'Black Vomit', roll playing, I also became his brother behind him and a boatman behind the brother. I 'comped' them together in Photoshop and Pixlr on my phone with some of my Waterton Hall photographs, and bird and boat pulley reference I found on the internet. I knew at the very least I wanted expressive hands and and a delirious, up the nose shot of Charles Waterton.
I am not trying for photo realism in any way, my drawing just isn't that way inclined but I did find it helpful for the complicated panel compositions needed for the storytelling.
