We thought it would be a good idea to go step by step with the changes we made in the prologue:

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 1 by RomanJones In the first page we just changed the surgeon. In the original, she was just going to be a background character who exists to give exposition on a difficult wasting disease and the ugly process involved in trying to find a treatment. Since Sybil Sinclair (yes, I have her name wrong. I need to fix it) will be a vital character later on, we needed to change her from a forgettable NPC to a quickly recognizable person. We went with someone with Ethiopian ancestry since Sybil needs to have a natural strength and elegance to her - someone you could imagine being a natural leader. 

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 2 by RomanJones Why the lightened hair and gold eyes? I dunno, it just looked good, and also makes her memorable without being too unrealistic. 

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 3 by RomanJones We made the shadows cleaner. I still don't like how static it all looks but in order to fix that we'd have to redraw the whole thing. Not gonna happen - we have a lot of work to do.

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 4 by RomanJones We changed the colors a bit to make the backgrounds less grey and unappealing. Yeah, the central colors are grey scale in the overall comic, and the colors are purposefully muted, but the original pages were way too much. 


Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 5 by RomanJones More playing around with colors. The dialogue sounds less scripted now, but Sybil will be someone prone to monologues since leadership types are like that. 

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 6 by RomanJones Making the backgrounds and panels more interesting. Also giving Sybil dignity that she didn't have before. Now she looks reasonably stressed rather than three seconds away from a nervous breakdown. 

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 7 by RomanJones Pretty happy with how Sybil turned out here. She looks a lot more complicated of a person here than before. 

Serious Engineering - Heavy Traffic page 8 by RomanJones Those bricks just about killed me.

Hello.
I was born in South Candyland under the rule of Queen Frosting. I was raised in a strict Necronomic household by Nigerian parents who died in a freak child-rearing accident that left me alone and homeless at the tender age of thirty-four. After traveling Asia via balloon and sniping those FUCKING MONGOLIAN FUCKERS for ice cream money I started drawing cartoons about a homosexual super villain with a debilitating spinal disease.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit.

You had a birthday, and I missed it, because I rarely visit your actual page... One of the things about watching someone here, I guess.
Anyhow, a really belated happy birthday wish for ya!
