Epicurus Spread, Pencils & Inks



Always love looking at  rough pencils to see whatever changes happen after the inks.  In the pencils, Socrates is leaning against a wood pile, which became a wooden barrel in the inked version.

Added a basket of fish next to the pig. 

Also changed Socrates 'profile' to 'three-quarter' to show him off better, then added the other philosophers - in the penciled version, i was lazy and tried to keep the philosophers 'off panel' so i wouldn't have to draw them.

I was a very lazy artist back then.

Still am.

I also find it very interesting seeing the progress from roughs to finished pieces. The whole page, including the panel layout, went from a bit static to more dynamic.

Really neat stuff!
