Trugg strip thumbnail sketch

I wanted to share my rough thumbnail sketch of today’s strip with you. This is typically how I begin a strip, with a tiny sketch loosely rendered with some dialogue notes. Each panel is generally about the size of a postage stamp, I’m not concerned with too much detail. I just want to get the concept down as simply as possible. You’ll notice that the third frame is different in the final art, I used that frame in the next strip. Sometimes I wish I could keep the energy of these rough sketches in the final art, but that is a really hard thing to do.
