Great Story Boarding Blog

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

I found this great blog via twitter which I think should be really handy for the whole graphic novel type stuff.  It’s called Seven Camels for those who can’t be bothered to click!

The Punks Dislikes

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

This one isn’t actually from EelKat but I took the concept of it from there The Punk dislikes not being able to bath properlly as her skin becomes very itchy and is prone to flaking and the like, this is due to her unusual metabolism – she isn’t perfect she was after all an experiment […]

Groan

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Ok so I’m story boarding like a demond (well ok I managed like five pages but hey I’m getting there ok!) and the thing is peppered with the most awful tongue in cheek type humour – the sort of thing that makes my husband groan :/ A few years a go I drew a series […]

Perfectionism and Feeling Over Whelmed

Saturday, April 10th, 2010

The Punk is such a large story and there are starting to be so many things that could be little side spin offs that I am starting to feel scared of even attempting it :/ The comics are something that has cuased me to assess what I want from The Punk – I want the […]

Revolations – Story Line

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

The Punk is physically 12 and living with a foster family in Babel, her best friend Jesu hangs around waiting for her – they head off into Babel itself and look at the Tower which is almost completed. It is a comms tower and so much more – housing the core of their super computer […]

Standard Layout

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

From reading on the Forum, various websites and from looking at the comics on the shelf it would appear that a comic is 20-25 pages, a graphic novel (what I would call a comic BOOK) has like 4-5 chapters of this sort of length in it and each page has a maximium of 9 panels. […]

Comic Book Story Line – An Over View

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

I have decided to go from just before Babel is destroyed in the comic books and think they will be a series that can be read as individual magizine type comics or as a longer comic book type thing – five or so of the smaller books put together. One of the things I have […]

Where to begin

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I have been pondering where to actually start the story for the comic book – I could push it further and further back say to the rise of the ‘Elves’ civilization or to it fall but I think that at this stage I do still want to keep the Punk central to the proceedings. So […]

Ok… erm… really?

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

Well I have been doing alot of reading up on comic books and graphic novels – firstly what do they mean the target audience is male between 18-30? Most of the comic book consumers I know are female :/ Even the publishing side of things seems to assume you are male :/ I know there […]

Start at the Beginning…

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Ok so I had a radical rethink and came to the conclusion that the Punks WHOLE LIFE would make an interesting comic series that could be sold as the normal comic magizine type things or almalogmated into larger collections to make a ‘graphic novel’. This is a bit scary as I still have many unanswered […]
