In my intro to digital techniques class we were given the assignment to "make a book" using the three programs photoshop, illustrator, and In-design. The class really is a waste of my time because its a "this is how you make a new document" very basic, basic class. But its required by the department so whatever. Well for my book topic I wrote a short story which I originally intended to illustrate like a graphic novel, but due to..laziness and lack of time, im going more for the childrens book style illustrating.
If you want to read the whole short story heres the link to a thread, its only about 7 paragraphs long
(forgive me for linking to another forum, I didnt want to make this post excessivly long, and this forum doesnt really deal with writing anyways)
(not to sound concieted but ive been told by quite a few people its entertaining at least)
Id really appreciate if you read the story before critiquing but
for those of you who dont feel like reading the entire thing heres the excerpt that this illusrtation is for
"...Julius yanked the dagger from his leg with a grunt and handed it to Seoman, then the two men braced themselves back to back as their families came charging at them screaming “Death to the traitors.” "
Up to this point ive just been working on the composition and haven done much to the figures except block them in, in any case im open to any crits you guys have good or bad.
edit: feel free to tell me what you think of the actual story as well.
