I'm still missing some things. The mad lib thing earlier worked, I'm just hashing out visual details, so the end is still not completely done. And I want to do a page or two of character flashback. And the whole meet the monster scene is still only in my head, I want to do some villain research in Jeff Smith's "Bone" and relook at some parts from Alan Moore's "V for Vendetta" before I do.
But I'm starting to re-edit already to keep on top of things. I dunno if I am going to re-thumbnail everything out bigger for people to see. Because A. That's time I don't want to spare and B. Having every single page of my comic critiqued is going to be a pain in the ass. Maybe I'll redo them just a teeny bit bigger. Not sure. I'm going to talk to the profs about it tomorrow.
And the page count is (drumroll please) 64 pages, not including the stuff I have yet to put in. But I think that will take 10-20 pages more, tops. And I'm going to try and make it even more concise if possible.
I want to take a step back from all of it for a moment and double check to make sure that this is where I want it to go. I want to do more drawings of the sea, and have it be environmental, but it's more symbolic than anything else at this point. I still really want to draw sea critters. Maybe I can add some into side panels or as part of the panel, like Jessica Fink does with hair in her comic Chester 500 (http://jessfink.com/Chester5000XYV)? Watch out, not safe for work. At all.
I wish I had more time. I know I'm going to need more time.
