Iâ€™m on a roll.
Captain Rasovich talks to Astrova (another officer) about things to come! Foreshadowing! Meanwhile, Pinky lands on the rear deck.
Oh dear, sometimes I find the art embarrassing and sometimes itâ€™s the writing. This time itâ€™s the writing. I tried some ham-fisted foreshadowing here. Officer Astrova was a character that Iâ€™d made up for the novelisation of the story; before I decided what Iâ€™d do with Pinky, I thought I might try putting her story in novel form. I never got too far because I kept getting carried away with descriptions. In the end I just thought itâ€™d probably take less time to draw than write about! Anyway, Astrova was supposed to have a bigger part, but this seems to be her only showing in the comic. Maybe sheâ€™ll come back later?
Her name was roughly based on the Russian artist who did that great version of â€œPinky hitsâ€ (fan gallery), because it was a good name and I didnâ€™t know many other Russian namesâ€¦
This was one of the easier pages to colour because Iâ€™d already done a digitally coloured version of the middle panel sometime before (albeit with a mouse). I just loved that view so much.
I've decided to upload one page a day until I catch up with the main site. Just because I like to write about these pages and it's really hard to do that when I upload 10 at a go, (which I hate doing). Meanwhile, if you want to see the latest, just click the â€œMain siteâ€ link.
