Shadowfox #11 - "Trimming the Fat"

Spent some time this weekend working on the pitch package for the comic. This is what I'll send to the artist in order to have character designs done. I had previously managed to get the story down to six issues, so all that remains is to write the scripts (I say that like it's an easy thing...).

Along with synopses of each issue in the arc, I plan to send along bios on each character that will appear, as well as reference photos for a few of them. I'll also provide information on the characters' world, including their hometown of Bayou City. Basically everything I can think of to create as clear a picture as I can. I've never done this before, so I figure overkill is better than underkill. I have yet to contact the artist I want for this project, but that'll be coming once I have the first script done (I actually could contact him now, since I'm just looking to have the characters designed, but I'm also hoping he'll be interested in doing the whole book, so...). I had hoped to start the script this past weekend, but it just didn't happen. I actually have a good bit to go on the pitch package, but it shouldn't take long.

The heavy lifting has already been done, so it's downhill from here...
