I'm halfway done with my midget thumbnails. And by halfway done, I mean halfway through the story. Which is AWESOME, I could potentially finish them by tonight or tomorrow.
And I'm halfway done and only have 30 thumbnails (the equivalent of 30 pages) which is also great! I think I found a way to include content that the original longer piece would have without adding too many pages. Too many pages has been a real concern of my peers when I'm getting critiqued, so anything that brings the number down is keen.
I've been thinking about what I should do once I finish these thumbnails. They make sense to me, but in terms of presenting them to my classmates I would have to do a lot of walking-through and arm waving (the thumbnails are a little over an inch tall). I think the next step would be to make them a bit bigger so people other than me can see what's going on. I don't want to spend too much time on them, but I do want to get a better feel for postures and setting and that sort of thing before I start to sketch.
If I get to start. I'm happy as a clam right now, I feel like I turned an hourglass over so the sand runs in my favor instead of against me. But I'm certain that someone will tell me how I overlooked a glaringly obvious something or other net time we have critique.
