This is the first page of my 24HCD entry for 2011. I’ll be updating daily over the next 24 days with a new page from the challenge – but if you’re keen and want the lot, you can grab the files here.

I started out by drawing two cards from a misery bubblegum deck to generate a character. I pulled out “hustler” and “naive” – or as I chose to interpret it “anything is possible if you say it often enough” “people want to be convinced” and “you fail to notice things around you”

And that’s where Tessa comes from.

Tessa is a bit scrappy in panel 1 here, because this image of her was the one I drew to design the character. Re-use everything to save time!

I’d like to encourage everyone to post comments as we go along, so that I can learn better for next time.
