Time for another look at Gina, Cary and Rabby as they stumble around the dungeon that David has so callously cast them into. Actually it's Cary's big idea as he's convinced that he can steer them through the puzzles and pick up squintillions of credits along the way.
This particular page I must admit did not come easily, in fact it took two attempts, with my ditching the first version after entirely finishing it up and then thinking it was kinda ok, which after a while I decided it most definitely wasn't.
I think this applies to a lot of creatives - you think you're on a roll and then for some reason the page you're working on just doesn't look so good and no matter how you try and adjust it, you can see it's just gently expiring on you. At which point the best thing you can do is just junk the thing and go back and start all over again. Although in this case and because all these pages are generated in Illustrator, I was able to incorporate elements of the first failed version into the second version.
Tomorrow we'll be running the last part of the Denis McLoughlin mini-bio along with some more of those stunning covers.
