I’ve finally started the comic that I’ve always wanted to start. My main problem with getting this started was that I didn’t know how to get started. Before I would just pick up my pencil and start drawing a comic. I would spend maybe an hour or two and end up not liking what it was I created. This would leave me discouraged and uninterested in trying again. However, this time around, I decided to make a script for this page. In my script I was able to plan out my story, the panels, and dialogue. Once I had all of that stuff preplanned, it was much easier to make the comic organized, and too my liking. This did take me quite some time, but now that I have an established process with my script, I should be able to make more pages soon enough.
This is another work for my fear series. In this piece, I tend to make heavy use of value. This enables my work to look three dimensional. Since I have the concept of the man looking into a mirror depicted, it would make sense for the piece to pop out, just to show that there is space between the man and the mirror. I also made use of perspective, which I think, brings the piece together. It feels as if you’re looking at the mirror from behind the man. The perspective helps bring you into the world and experience what he is experiencing from the mirror. Lastly, what keeps the piece together is the use of consistency. I tend to use the same tones and lightweights in the hair, face, clothes, and ears. This helps to keep the piece realistic, which keeps the viewers eyes from darting around the page too much.
