Directing Action in Comic Scripts

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Sept. 11, 2015



I usually write comic scripts with a pretty specific idea of what each panel will look like when drawn: the setting, who’s doing what, facial expressions, and so on. What I almost never do is write any of that down. Except for specific actions that characters have to respond ...

Then and Now

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Sept. 7, 2015



“Save ALL your work. Never throw your old art in the trash!” was a repeated mantra from all my art teachers over the years. The reasoning behind this idea makes sense: Old art is like a time capsule for fresh ideas and it can be a great addition in a ...

Comic-making shortcuts

(Colouring Sheets Included @ Bottom of Post)

Did you ever watch Mister Rogers when you were a little kid? My all-time favourite episode was the one where he takes the viewer to the crayon factory and showed us how crayons were made. I thought it was the most mesmerizing thing imaginable ...

Late Night Drive

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Aug. 24, 2015



Like any typical night that I get exhausted from staying cooped up inside the house, I grabbed my car keys, started up the engine, and went out on a drive by myself. Tonight was a bit special because I had a mixed CD soundtrack of the arcade driving game, Wangan ...

And So We Disconnect

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Aug. 17, 2015



The demand for electric outlets in my room is high because there is always a tablet, mp3 player, or any random lithium-powered gadget lying around that needs charging. My desktop workstation drains the most energy and there is a tangled sea of snake-like cords lurking under my desk around my ...

An Analysis of a Polarizing Character

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Aug. 10, 2015



It seems that I get into a very opinionated argument whenever the topic of discussion veers toward Neon Genesis Evangelion. Usually it is about how the Evangelion movies are awesome and how the main character is not so awesome. That being said, it has been twenty years since the mid-1990s ...

Those images that get stuck in your head

DEADLINES - (Banes talks to himself)

Banes at 12:00AM, July 30, 2015





I remember the first time the idea of deadlines made any kind of impression on me. I was maybe fifteen and a substitute teacher told me a bit about higher education and that a professor had told her to take all the time she needed to finish some project or ...
