Act 3 Script Redone - Badin and the Secret of the Saami

What is this?
Concept sketch of a "character"
Badin and the Secret of the Saami is huge. I cannot promise you will like it. But you will be turning pages. While re-writing, I have been studying comics from the 1940s through modern years. I have been looking at how scenes are set up, what they do to my eye and my heart.

Since the main characters are children, there are some limitations to the scale of action. However, I think I have worked in a good way of using minor characters and the antagonists to crank up the excitement.

I can see how writers can become attached to their characters—especially when they represent real figures in history.

Act 4—the final act—is also being revised. The action in this one is intense. Drawing it—well, I cannot even imagine how I will do it. But it not be without great difficulty. I have been practicing by stepping up the quality of my digital inking for my full-time stock illustration business. This graphic novel is indeed the most difficult—and greatest—journey I have ever embarked upon.
