GUSTAVE DORE just for you.
For one of my school assignments, I chose to do a trial run of a couple pages of DFS to get a feel for where I’m at, comic-making wise. And I’m not exactly doing backflips over it, but I do know where to go from here. I promised myself I wouldn’t point all these awful flaws (apropos of absolutely nothing, perspective is really hard when you’ve been bullshitting it your whole career). So hey, let’s play critique bingo! Maybe you see something I don’t.
This is the actual script so far. These would be… pages 8-11 of the first chapter, approx. It’s the first time we meet Glenn, and a pretty calm scene considering the two incredibly violent ones it’s stuck between. AND WOWEE BEE, LOOK AT THAT EXPOSITION.
GODDAMN WOMAN MAKE A BOOK I CAN BUY. It’s crazy how adorable this is when I know it shouldn’t be but it bloody well is dammit. For some reason the neatness of Al’s type is bothering me and I can’t quite put my finger on why….if I figure it out I’ll def send a message your way but I am loving this.
Everything nice, clean and decent looks weird on Al. I chalk it up to him being a… complex individual.
Thank yooou. And to everyone who’s said nice things! To me these pages are emblematic of all my failings as a draftsman, colorist, inker, actor, sister, daughter, and friend, but it’s great to know I’m doing something right, apparently. Or: that everyone else is about as flawed as I am.
HAW this is so cute. I love that you can do such quirky dark humor with such …unique… material. Also, I agree, I’d love to see/buy a graphic novveelll from youuu. We all flawed. <3
