Behind the Scenes
This was a tough part in the comic for me to do, mostly just because I couldn’t decide the best way to reveal the attack and demise of the ODSTs.

Here’s a few in-progress shots of an abandoned version of the above page…

And a deleted page (incorporating what I had already painted in the last image), which reveals how I had decided to slowly show the entire demise of the ODSTs over a few pages.

In the end though, I felt that it would be better to shock the audience more with a two-page spread and not drag out the deaths of the ODSTs, and instead focus on Jun’s perspective of their deaths.
