  • The character development is something that you are interested and that is obvious to see from your drawings. I find characters amazing, and the stories good.

    Composition is something that you have to decide to experiment. I would rather like to see some facial expressions/zoom in and out, combination of 3-5 squares which could be different sizes. Again, I don’t know how you feel about all this as you could be aiming to stay with strict 3 squares and create your approach to present a story. That could be something harder to do but very innovative.

    To help with examples it would be good to read some of the old school; Will Eisner comics (all just been reprinted-best work The Spirit) or even better Charles Schultz- Peanuts, and comedy flavor of Bill Watterson-Calvin & Hobbes (all collected and just been reprinted in 3 huge books).

    I am looking forward to see new characters and more comics of United Poultry Platoon.

    Later…

  • Thanks Aleks! Your comments are constructive and very helpfull. Creating characters is what I really enjoy the most 😉 In terms of composition and dynamic of the comics, I wanted to keep it minimalistic at first, before characters start to live. Looking forward to hear more from you! ciao
