Dean Alfar, Kestrel Studio's big boss and co-editor of the graphic novels Siglo: Freedom and the upcoming Siglo: Passion, has posted a couple of preview pages of the upcoming second Siglo graphic novel along with some flattering reviews of artworks that I did along with Jeremy Arambulo's and Gerry Alanguilan's. Thought it would be fun to post a comparison of the featured pages with the thumbnails:

I don't know if the notes could be read without a magnifying glass but the differences between the original idea and the final lay-out is already apparent.

I adjusted the spaces right around their heads for the dialogue and word balloons. You can read the story when the book comes out some months from now. I took pictures inside my late grandmother's house in Malolos, Bulacan and used it for the background. My uncle's living there now and hopefully we'll still get to keep it. After all my brothers, sister, and various cousins still have a lot of childhood memories clinging inside it.
