Well, It’s happening.
I’ve started on the Silver Foxes Graphic Novel. I’m going through one chapter at a time–revising, making a script, and drawing, inking, and toning. I’m up to penciling page 5.
The first chapter will be 11 pages . . . so it’s going to be a looong ride.
The old Chapter 1 started off as two pages. It was surprisingly good for adapting in GN form, and I didn’t change much during revisions. After I finished revising it, it turned into 3 pages of prose. Not bad.
However, I consider this the easy part. While I’m only going to revise and draw one chapter at a time, I have already finished the overhauling the plot. And not much is the same.
If you haven’t read the first Silver Foxes book, the following does contain spoilers.
While the revision I’m planning still has J.R. meeting Xena, taking her home, Max kidnapping and experimenting on her and such, the way in which I go about it is completely different. For instance, Chapters 2 and 4 go into how Celeste escaped Terrance Claybourne. J.R. no longer threatens a bulldog in Chapter 3 nor flirts with the store clerks to get free stuff. And he no longer experiments with tech in his basement. And those are just a few examples. So yeah . . . lots of changes. I think they’re for the better, though; they make more sense.
My plan is to separate this GN into three parts–because of the length and to keep my sanity. I plan to upload the pages after I’ve finished them, but I’m toying with the idea of releasing them in book form for purchase as well. When I’m finished the entire revision of the story, I may also release an update of the book. We’ll see. That’s still far, far away.
I hope this will turn out well. My ambitions sometimes get away from me. But either way, this is a project I must see to completion.
Even if I can’t draw a speeder . . . yet!
I also couldn’t draw a ruined city up until 3 days ago. =)
