Spying with Lana – Sean Harrington – Mysterious Brunette – 01

I approached previous featured artist Sean Harrington with a pitch for his webcomic Spying with Lana. My basic storyline is our heroine, Lana is being stalked by a mysterious brunette. Over the next few weeks, there will be additional pages added as the story unfolds. Each page will include a full script breakdown so you can see the magic Sean does to move from my script (words on a page) to a completed sequential piece.

All completed pages will be collated in the below link :

Spying with Lana, spy, artwork, sexy, Sean Harrington, Mysterious Brunette

Synopsis –
Lana with punching bag.
Chief informs her of mysterious brunette.

Keeping with your style, this gives a opportunity to see Lana in all her glory – She’s in a very tight tank top (with appropriate clevage) and very tight shots which don’t leave much to the imagination.

Panel 1 – Top shot (Angle from the left)
She’s throwing a huge left punch into a punching bag.
This should give a good view of her clevage.

Panel 2 – Bottom shot (Angle from right)
A full round-house kick into the punching bag. This should
give a panty shot from that angle.

Panel 3 – Front on-shot
Background there’s a typical big tough agent (Doug) at the back.
Lana is still beating away at the bag.

Agent : Yo Lana. The boss wants to see you.

Panel 4 – Side shot

Lana is giving the punching bag a sensual embrace.
She’s whispering to the punching bag.

Lana : *sigh* Got to run. Don’t tell anyone but you’re my favourite punching bag.

Panel 5 – Long panel.
Background – Lana walking away. Back turned.
Foreground – Doug standing near the punching bag. Mike (nerdy character – NEW) is crawling out of the punching bag. Mike terribly bruised and battered.

Doug : Mike you can’t keep hiding in Lana’s punching bag.
Mike : She doesn’t know I’m here and the hug at the end is all worth it.

Panel 6 / 7 – High panel
Side by side panels.

Panel 6 –
Background – Lana’s walking in, she’s still all sweaty and looking very hot.
Foreground – Lana’s boss is looking a file. Back turned to Lana. Readers can see a picture of the hot mysterious brunette on the file, her face is blocked.

Lana : You called?

Panel 7 – Tight panel on the boss.
He’s turned around and holding the file up.
Some blurred effect and focus on the picture of the brunette.

Boss : We’ve received several reports from our field agents. We don’t know who this mysterious brunette is yet but she’s being going through some of your old cases. There is reason to believe she’s trying to . . .

    Supercool skin tones and highlights, real nice work.

    Script to comic is interesting. Comic follows the script, but not the exact letter of the script, artistic license and all that.

    rsss! very, very nice!!1

  3. Not so much artistic license as artistic inefficiency. I didn’t leave enough room for all the dialogue in the last panel, so I had to trim it a bit.

    You’d think that after my years doing comics I’d be better at allowing for word bubbles, but you should see how I mangle my own scripts!

    Stephen, thanks for showcasing my work again! Putting the original script alongside the finished pages is a great idea, too.
