Weight of the World

Sketch by Tracy MacLauchlan. Background colors by Yesenia Carrero. Cain's updated line art and colors by Dana Corrigan

Over a year and a half ago, the below sketch was given to me as a gift by the lovely, kind and incredibly talented Tracy MacLauchlan:

I loved it so much that I used it in the original pitch book (with her permission) to Warner Brothers. Between then and the development of the new pitch book, the cast had gone through a dramatic change in their designs, which changed Cain's details and proportions. While designing the new pitch book, the emotion and darkness of this image fit so well. With Tracy's permission, I redrafted an updated version of Cain, very strongly referencing her original sketch.

Jess had been kind enough to color the background during the construction of the original pitch book, to be used for the cover. Though the cover for the new pitch book has changed, this colored background fit beautifully back where it originally belonged.

I love how this came out, and it never would have been possible without Jess and Tracy. Thank you guys so much!
