~ Stalingrad Boards... ~

(Continued from the last post.)

(Maybe a line here in the 3rd panel from the scar-faced lieutenant like: "Heh, I keep forgetting - the point of all this is to go home - right?")

(Yelling at the lieutenant in the 2nd panel: "What the hell are you doing?!"; Lieutenant: "Not enough time for him to reload and shoot straight." 3rd panel: [shot ricochets of wall] "See?")

And off they go to a presumably worse position than this, with the Lieutenant on a death wish binge.

So the sequential got past the 3-panel mark. Hoorah for pushing myself during work hours... I mean... after work hours... Yes.

As one coworker knows, there's a color piece that kind of accompanies this. Will see if I can channel the ghost of Rembrandt or Sargent over this next week and get the thing done.

lol "see?"

Make sure to not have everyone have gloves, unless it's the start of the battle I guess. That probably doesn't matter in the storyboard.

Thanks much for stopping by.

It's a good point, and considering that these are soldiers in pretty much identical gear, it'd behoove me to try to make the main characters as differentiated as possible.

The one guy who gets shot is without gloves, but thinking about it now, I should've reserved that for the lieutenant.

Always fun to see your story!! You definitely capture the intensity of the battle!!

Thanks much Alina. The next step is to capture a color other than post-it note yellow when showing the story. I'm workin on it...
