READ- I Was a Hero
UPDATE– AUG-18-09 I WAS A HERO
I have been working really hard on this comic, and will soon be able to submit to Zuda. I have some color and touch ups to finish, but overall I am super happy with this one. So, I thought I would post a pin up I played around with. My final color scheme may be a little different, but this is pretty much the look of ” I WAS A HERO”.
Thanks for checking it out, and hopefully you’ll get to read it some time soon!! Feel free to leave me some feedback, good or bad!
My new comic, ” I WAS A HERO”……
Here I go again. After my experience with my first submission to Zuda.com, D.C’s web comic competition site, I have learned a lot. “Pure Blood”, my first submission, was a little rushed and not really created in the correct format. Working on “I Was a Hero” is giving me great satisfaction, wide screen story telling is proving to be a game changer, something has clicked.
I have worked really hard on the script, and made a point of writing the whole story (in point form) first. It’s nice to know the story can carry 52 screens and more! On “Pure Blood” I had a basic outline, but didn’t delve deep enough to see it being exciting for that long.
As you will see from my sketches, it is of the Super Hero genre, and I feel right at home. I admit I love Super Hero comics, I grew up on them, they taught me basic anatomy and kept me occupied during math class. I am not going to be revealing any of the plot, but it is definitely not what you think…that’s all I will say for now.
I hope you enjoy the very rough sketches, and yes I know the anatomy is a little off here and there, so try and look past it! I am really looking forward to some critiques of the character designs, good or bad!
Thanks for stopping by!
These are rough outlines, so the costume is not set in stone. I was going for a 50’s style corny look.
These next sketches were an attempt to find what style works best. I want to keep it as minimalist as possible, but still portray a sense of realism.
Here are some various panels from my rough page layouts. I picked the ones I fleshed out the most, I usually keep my layouts closer to basic figure drawings, but I tend to find myself trying to give them too much detail. All these panels are from different pages and are in no way in order, I don’t want to give everything away!!
Well that’s it for now. I’m working on pencils now, and will upload some more sketches when I can. I hope you liked it and I hope this one works out better than my first attempt!
