Originally I had this long talky section as Pakku went through each individual car, past guards and lieutenants. It was boring to draw and would have been even more boring to read, so fortunately I had a moment of clarity and decided to show it all in a single page instead.
AND I finally get to introduce one of my NEW favorite characters (they’re all favorites, but hey, I can’t help being a proud character-momma) Lu Pai. He’s one of LeyLines’ Named Villains.
See, originally this section was going to take place with nameless villain types, but when I came to scripting it out, it just wasn’t working. I had the image of Lu Pai in my mind, and he just demanded a name. Naturally, once I started down that line of thought, I simply HAD to give him a back-story, and once he had a back-story I realized that ONE Named Villain wasn’t NEARLY enough.
So I made a whole team. Don’t worry, you’ll be meeting them soon enough. >:)
Have you ever had a character or project with a mind of its own?
