My Bio
Current Residence: Modesto, CA
I like making lists. Lists of ingredient. I think Joel Silver has a list. He usually has to have a helicopter and a building explode. I remember hearing that legendary comic writer/editor Jim Shooter (Rob Liefeld talks about using the Jim Shooter method of plotting a comic. And check out Magnus Robot Fighter vs Predator. One of my favorite comics ever!) …anyways. Jim talked about studying comics as a kid trying to figure out why his favorite comics were so great. Tropes are fun to list out. TV tropes has a website that should be turned into a book I could buy. Right now, I am studying what kind of shots/storypoints go in the first and last panels of my favorite pages. For instance, first panels can be wide shots of buildings, interior wide shots, or a close/up of a face that reveals more in the following panels. Last panels can be flying off, driving away, walking off, or an OMG cliffhanger page-turner close-ups. Often times the last panel is a cliffhanger, to setup the first

Thinking about comics. Studying McFarlane pages. Sometimes he uses a close-up panel between two action panels. Got me thinking about how to advance the scene. It’s almost like a game. What changed while we were looking at a close up. The angle? The distance between the characters? Maybe the characters are making contact with each other. Maybe one is walking away out of the scene.

It's not that hard. It usually takes 3 hours on a weekend. Usually a movie and a half. But I'm trying to eventually update a comic every week. That way, 52 weeks can turn into 2 1/2 comics a year. Way better than my 1 comic in 33 year track record I have. I can't believe 2007 is 6 years ago. But I encourage everyone to color a sketch every week. It really is a neat obtainable goal to have. Do it, people. Gimp is free.
