This is excellent. The only thing I might suggest is placing "fin" in the bottom right of the panel.

Thanks man! This one was done a long time ago, originally it was published in B&W, and I liked the placement of "fin" inside the silhouette of the empty eye-- however it probably didn't translate so well in color, but... it is what it is. ;) Thanks for the comment! :beer:

Ah. Yeah, I can see how in B&W it would work pretty well.

As usual, your storytelling senses are finely attuned, and this is a griping, visceral story. It's very very impressive.

Thanks, Julien. There isn't much of a story going on, it was made in a pretty random way. :) I would probably have approached this different if done now (this thing was done 3 years ago).

:lmao: When drawing this thing 3 years ago, I had some syringes near the drawing board, that I was using to recharge my home printer's cartridges, and I drew one in the comic, just as a totally random thing. I later thought that it might work as an excuse to justify those eyeless people appearing there, as if it were a drug-caused hallucination, or something... the truth, though, is that it's one of the most random comics I made. :laughing: Thanks, Cathy!

Horrifyingly amazing! :wow: I absolutely love all the different angles here, and the darkness/shadows are just incredible. I cringed at what was implied... effective and intense work, Diego!

DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner May 12, 2010
Thanks a lot, Natalie! :D This was heavily photo-referenced-- I can't get shadows like that drawing from memory, and for some of the angles, I would have a very hard time getting them right. Photos are a great solution for that. :)

That said, depending on photos is terrible when you don't have one for what you need to draw-- so... it's a struggle! :laughing:

:lmao: I agree-- I would like to take an anatomy class or something at some point, because right now (on the drawing I'm working on currently), I'm basically just using a guess-and-check method, where I'll draw/shade something, see if it looks right, and if not, then I'll alter it until it does. :laughing: This is kinda really bad, I know... :ashamed:
Reply
:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner May 13, 2010
I do the same, Natalie! :laughing: Something that I found to be really useful, is to pick the drawing you are working on, and see it in the mirror. After being working on the same thing for hours, I find it hard being objective about certain things, so when looking at an image on the mirror, inverted, if there certain anatomy or proportion mistakes, they tend to pop out when looked that way. :nod:

:iconzenatz19:
zenatz19 Featured By Owner May 13, 2010
Oh yeah that's very true-- I do that, too. :nod: I also tend to avoid looking at my drawing for DAYS at a time... :lmao: To get a fresh perspective, when I don't have to finish it by a deadline...
Reply
:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner May 13, 2010
:laughing: True, true, that helps a lot to get some objectivity. I like working fast, so sometimes I rush things and don't catch drawing mistakes until it's late. :no: But getting back to something after some time has passed is great to retouch/edit whenever might be necessary to do so. :)

zenatz19 Featured By Owner May 18, 2010
I was wondering-- do you think that for comics, working fast is better? Would you say that working fast helps the dynamics of the panel-to-panel flow?
Reply
:icondiegotripodi:
DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner May 18, 2010
I don't know, Natalie... I guess it's a matter of personal taste, really. :) Personally, I think that the actual planning of what you decide to show, and how you show it (this angle? that other one? why? what is it important to show to the reader here?), and how what you show in one panel connects with the rest, counts more than the drawing style someone uses.

So if that part is well thought out, and you can follow a story with the pics, then I don't think it's necesary to make super-detailed graphic stuff, as long as the drawings are clear. That said, I've read many times of comics artists saying that elaborate drawing styles play against the actual storytelling, but in all honesty, many times I think it's more of an excuse to justify being lazy than an actual fact. :lmao:

In my case, working fast I think is more related just with me being anxious, and not with anything else, really. :laughing: I spend a lot of time thinking and sketching before drawing pages, so that's a big time inversion-- and also editing stuff when I finished drawing. Since I try to get the pages drawn as soon as possible, I have tons of drawing mistakes that I later try to fix... So I'm not very speedy as I'd like to. :hmm:

Anyways, what it does happen to me as a reader sometimes, is that with some drawings that are super detailed I kind of get stuck looking at the pics and my mind goes away from the story. Maybe it's just that detailed drawings require more attention to figure then out, and with a simpler drawing it's like "point taken", and the eye moves to the next panel in a easilier manner... I'm not sure about this, though...

In conclusion, I think there's people who's great at making comics that are drawn in super elaborated ways, and others that are great at simplifying, which I think is easier said than done, and both approaches can work wonderfully well when they manage to tell with the pictures what they want to. :)
