Another visual we had right from the beginning, though again, Hugh’s idea to make the bullet trajectory the SFX.

Hugh originally had Max in the fetal position, so I explained it was more like actual paralysis than just agonizing pain. (But there’s that too!)


This was the first page in the roughs where I really captured what I wanted the drones to be: hulking, dark, and glaring with a single, sinister eye. The sketched out off-ness of it was something I tried to capture from this page and use for the final drafts, but I don’t think it translated as well. Still, this is one of my favorite rough pages I did, from the scary drone to the glint of the scope in the treeline.
