It helped to establish the character shapes in THINGS UNDONE so that their personalities could be clearer to read in their body language. In some cases it worked out clearly in others like the two toward the end they’re very similar. It more or less worked to my advantage as the last three characters in this line-up moved as one and kind of book-ended the squatty fellow.
If you’re in San Diego for the Comicon, I’ll be there on Friday & possibly Saturday. I’ll have to look at my schedule, but stop on by we should have advanced copies of the book there.
