Brabbles & Boggitt Page 40



I said a few weeks ago---that as we approached the ending of this particular Brabbles & Boggitt tale--- I would be producing a few changes and then showing the you the before and after images below.

Well, my faithful readers, this is one such page. My plan was to change one panel, which, due to its construction, led to another panel, then another and another; in the end all that was left of the original page was the first two panels.

So for you, this week, I have virtually re drawn an entire page, but for you, I think it was worth it; and set out below is the page before the changes...what do you think?



On another point, we now only have six more weeks until the end of this particular tale and I am already well into the construction of the next Brabbles & Boggitt story called, tentatively, 'The Elves, the Shoe Maker and the Frog', where we see Brabbles go into two business ventures. The first being a sweat shop and the second as a royal relationship consultant while Boggitt...

well why don't I just tell you on another post while also giving you a sneak preview of some of the new crazies I've created for this tale.

Next Week: The court is in session...DON'T MISS IT!

I would love to have my work reach a much larger audience and although I could no doubt eventually get there under my own steam, I'll get there a lot quicker with your help, so please, please spread the word.

Thank you

  2. Hi Karl! Your re-working of the panels has improved the look totally! The higher viewpoint and larger crowd of the first main panel add the extra oomph to the picture that I wouldn't have realised it needed had you not done the second draft (if that makes sense.) Again the wider angle view of the bears arriving and obvious lack of crowd is more emphasised and has much more contrast from the first panel. Impressive, interesting and, I have to say, a bit of an education. The first viewpoint isn't always the best. There's a lesson there! Kind regards, Brian.

    1. I was indeed very busy, my friend and it took a few late nights scratching away with pencil and nib before clicking on with the computer, but it was worth it and I'm glad to also thought so.

      On another point, I placed, within the crowd, another character who influenced my early cartoon strip days. Its a syndicated American strip character; he's somewhere on the page if you want to take a peek.

      It's something I enjoyed doing and may very well do from time-to-time, so not only will you receive a story, there could also be other stuff going on

      Cheers
      Karl
