    40 WINKS(TRAILER to the awesome Comic)

    HI Guys,
    Bhanu here... I am a comic artist-writer and here's a bit a new project called 40 WINKS that I have been illustrating, with writers on the story Aakshat Sinha and Anupam Arunachalam.

    Ok, the blow you away bit in the titles was to just you get into seeing this thread. To know the reason please read further.

    Below is the Trailer of the comic that I worked on.

    OK so here's the stuff... yeah you got it!! The awesome sh*t
    that I promised... ok maybe it isnt that good, but everybody's gotta do shameless self advertising

    Hope you are psyched, I am, I am actually more nervous though, but thats another thing.

    Thanks a lot in advance for the comments and critiques



    EDIT - PUT THE TRAILER IN PLACE OF THE SAMPLE PAGES

    I'm liking your control of tone in these a great deal bhanu.
    I also really like the three spiral staircase panels and the way they work together as a little team - one leading you eye to the next via very subtle use of the staircase bannister. Excellent stuff there.
    Your mood through lighting effects is good too.

    On the negative side: There is an inconstency in the way that the textured panels relate to the 'clean' panels. I like the idea in principle since it varies things up, but there is something I cannot quite put my finger on as to why it is beaving as a distraction rather than an added richness.

    The figures seem a little awkward on certain panels - which I was a little surprised about at first, considering your skills... But then it dawned on me what might be causing this slight woodenness:
    The art I have seen of yours has nearly always involved extreme energy in gesture and pose. My guess is that you are way out of practice with ordinary, everyday poses and straightforward 'natural' actions and the poses performed thereof.
    Remedy?
    Lots of drawing of people in the street, in cafe bars, on the iPhone, cleaning their teeth, cutting fingernails, eating...
    (Interestingly, where you have used reference for certain details of hands your drawing is vey expressive and bang on target!)

    Final crit (I hope you're not getting too mad at me!) the main cover image is very weak as a design. I KNOW you can do better than this!

    All that said (and I say it with the genuine friendly keeness to help out) I like the mood and sense of sleazy intrigue and claustrophobia you have captured.

    the one panel that works for me, is the staircase shot looking down, - it's dramatic, I also agree with Chris's observations, some studies of regular postures would do your work an enormous benefit,
    how new is this project?

    FunnyJenny - Thanks alot

    Chris- Thanks a lot for the for the detailed critique as always, sir. I am more than glad to hear your thoughts.
    I would Agree with all your crits, over past few years, having been working on too much dynamic angles, dynamic poses.
    Not much life drawing of normal poses. So that sucks, when I have draw a pose which doesnt involve strong intent or action, it just comes out without any gesture.
    Have to get that sketchbook out, do some normal drawing, thats what is needed most for a good comic.
    One good reveal is- that I dint use reference for hands .. I just draw a lotta hands.. so that helped out I guess.
    I am not that happy with the inconsistency of the texture. Don't know how to solve it yet as well.
    Lets see. But surely I will work on the figures... Its well taht you pointed it out, somewhere I was hoping that it would just go away(the problem).
    And yeah that poster/cover sorta sucks..
    The drawing is ok... but meh.

    Thanks a lot Sir. For all the wise words

    Mozchops- WOah, my latest hero in these pages
    I shall heed to your advice sir. The project is rather new, but with a very tight deadline, almost a completed page a day.
    Thats my only gripe, that I might not have time to correct somethings I would like to.

    Thanks a lot...I will work hard to get over the problems.

    This is looking much better my friend! Big improvement everywhere:
    More seductive to look at and sweeps along more smoothly without the previous stylistic hiccups.
    Well done!
    (You've still got to sort that cover out though!... )
