In this sequence, Rocco (the patron's major demo) makes Uccello put on armour (which he has for reference) in an effort to put him into the scene. After drawing the first panel here where Rocco hands him the helmet, I decided it is better that he doesn't give Uccello the helmet, as it would make it even more difficult for Uccello to walk across the room. The second row will be turned into a single panel, showing Uccello in armour on the stool, imagining the battle around him), and i will have Rocco put the helmet on the painter there. This means I'll have to change panel 1 to remove the helmet - that won't be hard, as I drew it on a separate layer.
In panel 2, Rocco is pointing towards the stool being referred to - it looked clear with the 3D models, but less so now. I wanted to have Rocco not holding his sword on this page, to denote that the change in his approach from aggression to a more creative approach. However the sword would be useful in panel 2, for him to point to the stool. If he's not holding the helmet in panel 1, he can hold the sword, and so have it in his hand to point with in panel 2.
In panel 1 I thought the armour, drawn enlarged, did not read well at actual size. This Mac doesn't show pages in Clip Studio actual size - they're either bigger or smallerFor panel 2, I eliminated some details and managed the line weights of individual elements. The simplicity of the breastplate (fully seen in panel 2) helps, I think. The colour should also help distinguish the armoured and unarmored parts, e.g chain mail underneath.
