I always find it difficult going from roughs to cleanup; most times there are things in the rough that I just can't duplicate in the cleanup. The drawings also tend to stiffen up. This panel I went a little cleaner than usual; I would prefer to keep things on the rougher side; it better represents what I'm after in a drawing.

Here's an example from one of the latest pages.
UPDATE: (Thursday 01/19)
Here's the evolution of the page...layout (pencil on paper), rough (Cintiq) and cleanup with balloon placement (cintiq).
I don't really spend a ton of time on the layouts, they're more for just getting the general idea on the page and for character placement. The rough below is actually composed of two panels that used to be on different pages that I cut apart and recomposed in Photshop.(I was condensing three pages down to two).

this post where I was cosndensing two pages down to one to make the story move along quicker. I thought I might as well show the next step in the process. Below I've done a second rough and addded a preliminary tone pass. There are still things that need fixing, but this gives me a good idea at what the final page will look like.

I don't want to post anything without an image so here's a panel sans dialogue (the greys are looking a little flatter on my monitor then they are on the Cintiq)...
