OUTLINE OF PANEL 13

This should be the main purpose of this blog: sharing the development of CHRONOS. My concern with posting daily makes me digress. Maybe sticking to the basics might assure such rhythm. One post with the pencil sketch, the next with the outline and the last with the panel done.

Will this become too repetitive and a huge bore? Well, I might have to do some writing on each post to spice things up. Let’s try that.

This panel, again, has two images, and it’s the first with dialogue. Most of you have no idea of what’s being said, but you’ll get it soon enough when I publish the English version on the CHRONOS page in this site. You can always go there through the link in the MENU.

A succession of smaller panels accelerates the pace of the narrative and the reading. I think this bit should move faster than the previous moments of narration.

As you might have noticed, I am not a virtuoso when drawing. The hat gave me some pain, but I think it’s acceptable now. I must practice!

AMBIENCE

Stories, regardless of the media, are all about ambience, atmosphere, sensation. Plot and meaning are just part of the tools. Consciously or not, authors and artists seek the expression of feeling, as accurately as possible. Most audiences will feel differently and in unexpected ways, close or far away from the original and undefinable purpose.

Ambience can be brought through exquisite sequences of words, sounds, colors and visual shapes, and by the composition and design of a single image or object. This is also called style and each author or artist has a personal one. This uniqueness of style and expression is sometimes called voice.

Comics might be my favorite microphone to convey the ambience of my feelings. It is all immediate, when drawing fast enough. This panel of CHRONOS, without words, was particularly joyful on the making. I really feel the urge to accelerate production. It will happen soon.

Page Three

It is not perfect, but things are going. Drawing and writing directly with pen and markers, no pencil sketch. Only some scribblings on a notebook. I am getting speed and having fun. In time, I hope to improve my drawing skills.

Page Two Again!

Things are moving. Drawing as if writing. No pencil sketch. Only dialogue and fast doodles on a notebook before drawing directly with pen and markers. It’s clumsy, expressive and intuitive. Hopefully, as the story develops, with moments of intellect. Sometimes I fear to be a fool or an idiot. It’s a consequence of being so focused on myself and my work. Perhaps being exposed on the Internet might give me some clues about the path I’m taking. Let’s wait for people’s reactions…

Black Pen And Markers

I am really enjoying getting back to black markers. It’s much more intuitive and spontaneous to me. Now I previously write the text of the page on a notebook inside empty panels, just to map things up in my mind and enable myself to draw directly, without pencil sketching. Finally I am getting fast enough to shorten the gap between thought and materialization in an effective matter. It only takes discipline to get the work done and tune up technique in the meantime.
