An experimental comic is in the works
Comics and animation, though closely related, have such different ways of getting the story across, that getting back into making comics threw in a lot of challenges that I have forgotten over the years, such as composing the art with dialogue bubbles, making the direction of the art flow smoothly, and laying out the panels. But with an animation perspective, I had fun utilising some skills that I haven't used as much before when I made comics, such as strong body language, movement, gesture, and exaggeration.
Still, finishing this comic has taken longer than I thought. But I am on a roll with it, and really would love to see this finished, as I think the look of the comic is pretty unique. Stay tuned!
