Here's a peek at how I put a story together. This one started with a sketch of an older man's head, but I ran out of paper at the bottom and decided to put him in the ground up to his nose. Then I added his house in the background, with his wife talking on the telephone.
This led me to wonder how he got into this situation, so I drew a rough storyboard to flesh it out. I tried to keep the pencils loose and only draw what was necessary to the story. I did get a little heavier handed than I intended in some spots on the backgrounds, but it's a challenge to try and keep it simple and basic.
I'm still working on the figures, and tweaking the dialogue, but I thought it might be interesting to show the story in progress.
I should have the final inks and color done by next week. Maybe.

I don't want to give too much away)
