"Come on in,... the squalor's fine!"

Actually made some progress in the last couple of days... despite a small Calligraphy gig that popped into my lap at the last minute. It never fails... as soon as I set aside a weekend to make progress on my personal work, some random client manages to call at 5:30 on Friday afternoon with a last minute job for me. I can't really complain... times are tough and I really need the work... especially with my roommate threatening (again) to move out at the end of the month.
Regardless, I finished up the job as quickly as I could and still managed to squirt out a page of my own story to boot this weekend... DAMN, I'm good!

A funny thing, actually... the last page I finished and the one I'm scribbling away on now are actually pretty exciting. I'm setting a new precedent in my story. These two pages feature a few panels that portray a villainous male character assaulting and choking the life out of a female victim. Pretty brutal stuff... and necessary for the narrative. I'm trying my best to keep the scenes from becoming gratuitous in their violent content... while attempting to retain the shocking quality of the imagery.

I usually really try to steer clear of the whole "Damsel in Distress" convention often used in graphic story-telling... but it just seems so utterly appropriate for the sordid story I'm telling. I have to show how this girl ( a secondary character) is just being used as a tool... a plaything for the amusement of the tale's antagonist. I have to show what a vacuous soul he is... distant and cruel.
We need to see what happens to the girl, because it foreshadows the possible fate of one of the main protagonists. It has to be as frightening as possible in order to build her growing dread... we, as the viewer, are watching what happens through her eyes... experiencing the terror with her.
Anyway... it's good creepy fun... and I almost find myself feeling guilty for devising this sad fate for the fictional gal I've drawn.

A character created only to be destroyed for a pivotal plot device. Poor kid never had a chance...
