Tight Roughs for sample pages for Top Cow Talent Search

Hello out there comic art weirdos!

So, I have begun creating the final pencil pages for my submission for the annual Top Cow Talent Search. Now that I am rolling on those I thought it would be a good time to post my tight roughs to the old blog for folks to take a look:)

These are pages 1 and 2.
As I usually do when I start a series of tight roughs, I have overdrawn these. I try not to do this because roughs are really just for figuring out perspective, storytelling and basic acting. Spending time rendering and being overly fastidious with the line work can be a waste of time.

Here are pages 3 and 4.
Again, just trying to figure out the storytelling and making sure the panels flow together.

Pages 5 and 6.

And the final two pages, 7 and 8.

I will be posting the  pencilled pages as I finish them and talking briefly about the decisions I make when moving from roughs to finished work. 

Thanks for looking!
