Time Trial page 2. Hang in there, Gum Girl. Book out 7th March.
This is the rough layout of page 2. Layouts are useful for figuring out where to put the word balloons and the characters. The character to speak first in a panel is the one I put on the left side, as we read left to right. Also, I make notes for important details that are in the script, here Grace is wearing a watch. The odd thing is that when I draw quickly and freely I can capture an expression or bit of body language that I can't quite get again in the finished page. I think the final panel is better on the rough than on the finished page.
