Last year, Jamie S. Rich and I developed a series of blog posts to accompany A Boy & A Girl (Oni Press was planning to release it chapter-by-chapter online before the release of the GN). The posts weren’t used in the end, but I’d like to release this blog post (meant to follow chapter 2) and possibly one other because they discuss staging for comics. Specifically, how to handle a scene where the 180 degree rule and characters’ order of dialogue conflict.
Note: I know a lot of comic artists who feel that the 180 degree rule is more important in film than comics, and don’t let it dictate how they stage their comics. I think it’s a useful guideline and don’t break it unless I can’t avoid doing so.
"Do you have any illustrations of hippy girls? Love your work!"
Thank you, here’s a hippy girl for you. ♥
Please keep in mind that I’m not a professional or anything!
I just took some art classes when I was younger, so these are just a few things I remember or have learned since then!
Anyways, this ‘tutorial’ is just something I made very quickly…and I’m not good at explaining or teaching.
So please don’t take this seriously lol
A Janitor Secretly Worked On This For 7 Years. No One Knew Til Now… And It’s Baffling Everyone.
Over 30 years ago, a man spent 7 years hand-drawing the most complex, unbelievable and probably unsolvable maze I’ve ever seen. His daughter recently posted the following photos on Twitter and, needless to say, the entire Internet is exploding with questions about her dad.
So who is the man behind it? A professor? A mathematician? A wizard? No, no, and no. The correct answer is… the university janitor.
Wang Yue, a senior at Dalian Industry University, uses her paintbrush to turn ugly tree holes into lovely views in Shijiazhuang, capital city of Hebei Province.
Wang Yue calls the tree-hole paintings “meitu” which means “beautiful journey.” The paintings on the trees have brightened the city during the dull, grey winter.
