I really like comics and have been a bit obsessed with them of late, so I thought I'd try my hand at doing something in that direction. Currently still developing the characters and plot, but I just felt like having a go at making a sample page for fun.
It's going to be a superhero type of comic, which is quite novel to me - here in good ol' Europe I grew up with Asterix and Spirou, so Marvel and DC are unfamiliar terrain. Basically, our heroine's best friend has been kidnapped and right here she finds him in an old warehouse, because that's the sort of place where kidnapped people are kept captive, right? Ahem.
Not very far yet, obviously... I didn't use anatomy reference yet (or clothes reference or...) because I wanted to check in first if there's something I could do better with the page layout before getting into too much detail. (And of course the perspective sucks. Working on it.) What I've been thinking is that maybe the big panel on the bottom might be better if one saw the guy from above? But then we wouldn't really be following his gaze anymore, which is up towards the heroine.
Also, a tiny tiny sketch of the light/dark proportions I had in mind, just scribbling around. I'd like to have the background behind the panels fade from dark (top) to light (bottom) so it's like the darkness below the roof extends all the way up the page.
I know this is all really bad still, so just shoot with anything I can do better!
Thanks in advance
edit: I apologize if this is too rough to be in here... Then I'll move it elsewhere of course, I just don't think enough people look in my SB to give me critique on this...
