Last week, errrrrrrrr… the week before that, I talked about frames, the magical use of frames, the emotion you can give them, the shapes, sizes, how that can all add to the story you’re telling.
Kind of like how music can really be important in movies, it just gives ...

WHY you should STOP CARING.

damehelsing at 12:00AM, June 6, 2021



What is one of the big things that holds us back? Normally it’s us caring too much, caring about what we do, how we look, what others think and more.

Last week, while writing the article The Magic of Frames I was talking to PIT_FACE about it and she ...

The Magic of Frames

damehelsing at 12:00AM, May 30, 2021



Frames (a.k.a panels) are great, they can look simple or extraordinary, they can help the comic flow and provide feelings, a feeling of dread, excitement, anger, etc. Frames are more than just lines that encase the moments of our characters.

When you’re making your frame you always ...

Emotional Impact

Have you ever read something and it gave you the “feels?” Something that was so intense that you couldn't help but feel the emotional truth of a fictional moment in time? In many ways that is the highest form of our art, and possibly any art; to communicate an ...

Give it Your Best Shot

It is Thursday evening as I walk up to the ticket window and ask for two IMAX 3D tickets for the much anticipated movie feature. The man at the ticket booth prints me up two paper tickets and hands me some bulky, oversized gray 3D glasses frames. I the stadium ...

Using social media to get Senpai to notice you

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Dec. 22, 2017



As we gear up for the holiday season, we take this time to reflect on the year and decide on the inevitable New Year’s resolutions that follow. Whilst most will add, “Take better care of the plants”, “Do more exercise,” and “Finally get my life together,” to the list ...

Rain Has its Uses

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 18, 2017



These past few days in Greece we’ve had torrential rains that feel like the prelude to a second Flood- terrible casualties included. And that got me thinking that it rarely rains in webcomics.

Usually the weather is dry in sequential art- perhaps because it’s troublesome to draw characters ...

Gimme Five

Gimme Five - Senses in comics

Comics are a one-sense medium. Or web comics are, at least. I suppose print comics have a physical touch sensation, as my ink-stained and paper-cutted fingers can attest.

But I'm talking about In-Story sensation. Sight is the only sense automatically being engaged in a ...

PHOTOCOMICS
