Here's the next page of the scene for Survival of the Fittest. Colors by Dave Stewart.

Pretty clean left-to-right movement with the figure in each panel. My thought was that the camera stays put while she walks by (the BG changing in each panel). Her being next to the skeletons as the "next step in evolution" might be a bit heavy as far as storytelling, but oh well.

I was worried about the elevator looking like it wasn't going down, so I added an arrow inside the shaft. I doubt such arrows exist, but it help direct the eye.

Didn't even notice the arrow at first, so getting through to the subconscious there! Stellar page. Colours are also fantastic on this one.

I can't shake the feeling that the arrow hurts more than it helps. The eye lead and storytelling are perfectly effective without it. Excellent scenery. It makes me desperately want to get better at drawing backgrounds.

No I like the arrow. It makes my eye go right down.

Dude.... why are you not a story board artist for PARAMOUNT or something?

More money and freedom in comics I think. At least for now...

what i find really impressive is the camera rotation while still maintaining forward forward momentum in each comp regardless of panel to panel comp continuity. That shit still breaks my brain.

good call with the arrow too. it helps, and I didn't initially register it's graphic use.

My ony qualm is your obvious movement from Australopithecus, straight to Homo erectus, without Paranthropus being included in between. I mean come on, what is this the fifties. We should, in this new century, have reached a point where modern anthropological findings are more respected and better represented.

Ha, ha. :) Just kidding. ;) These panels are the bomb and I only jest out of jealousy due to my lack of masterful talent, that you obviously posses. I can't wait to see the finished work. Keep it up man. We want more.
