Unlikely Society -- Chapter 15!
Posted 25 October 2008 - 05:17 AM
Yes, it's finally here -- the next chapter in my increasingly sporadic "monthly" superhero comic. My apologies for the delay on this one. I don't really even have a good excuse, like I was abducted by aliens, or I was mauled by wolves, or anything cool like that.
On the bright side, I'm test-driving a new application for adding the word balloons, and it freakin' ROCKS. It drastically cuts down on the time it takes me to do the lettering. This application is my new best friend.
So, please check it out, and let me know what you think!

Also, what new program are you using?
It's called Comic Lifeby Plasq. I highly recommend it for anyone making Lego comics. I'm still on my free 30-day demo, but when that expires, I'm definitely going to be purchasing the program. I'm using the Mac version, but they do have a Windows version too for all you poor saps still using Windows.
Thanks! Yeah, I know, I need to get back to the close-to-monthly schedule. Unfortunately November isn't a great month. Every year I participate in the National Novel Writing Monthprogram, which means I'm supposed to be writing 50,000 words of a novel throughout the month. That doesn't leave a lot of time for Lego comic-making. But, we'll see how it goes ...
No need to apologize! I'm just glad you enjoyed it.

Taking pictures is probably my LEAST favorite part of the whole comic process! I think I've gotten better at it over the years, but it's always a bit of a chore.
Laying out the panels is fun though. I like that part a lot. As I'm reading comics, I find myself studying the panel layouts to see how they accomplish certain things. One of the best artists for that is Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider Man, and now DC's Trinity). He does some really interesting things. He can do a complex, two-page spread with 15 different panels, and yet he somehow guides your eye unerringly across the page in exactly the right direction so you never get confused. He's awesome.
I like the font that you use, Hinckley! It fits well with the whimsical, silly world that you've created. I could see using a smaller font size maybe, so you can cram more text into a panel.
The Holy Frijoles backstory was a bit of a surprise for me when I wrote it. It just sort of happened, and I went with it. I have NO IDEA where it's going in the future, but hey, that's what makes writing fun.
I think we should create some sort of "Lego Comic-maker" blog with tips, techniques, and so forth.
