|THE VALIANT #3 PAGE 6. 2014. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera)|
on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.
This is what I would probably label as a "boring" page. Not a whole lot is happening, but it's necessary to set up the environment and develop the characters' relationship. It still requires a good bit of research, much of which can be used on subsequent pages. I chose an actual mall in Colorado as the basis for "Lyram Mall," but took many liberties. I usually do character studies to keep their looks consistent, and in this case, had to keep track of Bloodshot's wounds, which slowly healed over the course of the scene.
