“Raid” Thumbnails (complete)

Herewith the complete thumbnails (pp. 1–18) for “The Great Kavadarci Raid.”

“The Great Raid” thumbnails 1–8

Filed under: News — Tags: — Baldemar @ 12:15 am

“The Great Raid” thumbnails pages 1 to 8.

This story should be 18–20 pages, and I’m posting the first eigh pages of thumbnails here. Additional pages will be added in the next week.

I’m telling this one in the present tense and trying to get away from the “telling not showing” problems of “The Flying Englishman.” I’m also using a six-panel grid, but I’m worried that the story becomes herky-jerky.

Characterizations are also an issue. In a single long story they can develop more easily, I’m thinking, than in a series of shorter works like these. I’ll likely have to revise things overall after the last of the thumbnails are done for the thesis.

“The Siren Call” click –> siren_thumb2

“The Flying Englishman” thumbnails

Filed under: News — Tags: , , , , , , — Baldemar @ 12:25 am

“The Flying Englishman” is a longer comic I plan to include in my thesis. Again, the thumbnails are reproduced here at 150%.

I’ll be letting this sit for a while before I revise it, but I’m already thinking about changing the splash panel to a looking-up view of John falling from the top of the trench and have less data-dumpy stuff at the beginning about the site.
