More Old Battle Bunnies Pages by jollyjack More Old Battle Bunnies Pages by jollyjack
The original pages 5 to 10 of Battle Bunnies.
This was as far as I got with the project back in 2008, and it was at this time that I acquired a Cintiq and started doing everything digitally, making these the last comic pages I drew with pencil and ink.

I made a point of not looking at these pages again until I had finished the new ones, simply so I didn’t make the task feel like a chore. No one enjoys having to re-do work, but I just couldn’t pick up where I left off 4 years ago, the difference in linework and character design (Beardy cat got fat!) was simply too great.

That said; there are a few angles and character positioning that I wish I had re-used.

There were a number of changes made to the narrative and dialogue for this scene, chief of which is the “hidden blade” gimmick. It’s a “bad girl” cliché that’s still there, but I felt the original was too aggressive for the slightly flirtatious air I wanted to establish between Connie and Varanasi. So, rather than have Connie produce a BIG blade from….somewhere, and sweep it in Varanasi’s direction, she simply produces a more manageable knife and offers it to an amused, rather than shocked, Rajlander, which is enough to make her point.

There's more scenery in the old one... But it's not so needed. The new one is simply better. Also, the fact that she leans on top of a table in the old one makes no sense. I like it better that she sits with them all in the sauna... And it's a very good move to have removed that silly towel.

Anyway, You've only improved with time. Good go, Jack. Can't wait to see more pages. It's a thrilling story.

Oh my :) Very good-I'll have to pick this up at next Demoncon (hopefully?) -the new version that is (although a special edition with the old pages rolled in as a bonus feature would be pretty sweet ;)).
