Here’s an example of a rough Seconds page vs a finished page. I drew the whole book in rough form, using a Cintiq tablet and Photoshop, and edited the story along the way. The final version was later inked by myself and Jason Fischer, colored by Nathan Fairbairn and lettered by Dustin Harbin. For those wondering, it was “penciled” digitally but later PRINTED OUT in blue ink and INKED TRADITIONALLY, with Jason and I both working on the same page.

This is page 195 in the final book, which was coded S5.8.2 in the rough files (Seconds: Chapter 5, Scene 8, Page 2). I used a simple code system until the story was locked, so I could add and remove scenes without screwing up all the numbering.

Another early (late-ish) Lis sketch. Lis from Seconds.

While I was drawing the first half of the book, her eyes were red-on-black, but I just found it difficult to make her expressive enough, so I switched to red-on-white.

Katie’s favorite chair was more prominent in the story outline and ended up not being very important in the finished book.

Evolution of “Lis” from Seconds.

Development sketches, 2010-2011. The final sketch (in leopard print) is an outfit sketch from later in the comics process, mid-2013, after I’d drawn her in the comic a bunch of times.
