Lots of talking on this page and the following few pages. I'm calling on Wood's 22 panels to help me through this part.

I hadn't registered the age difference until now.

TBH, I didn't really go out of my way to make that very clear to the reader until now.
Oversight on my part. (I'm still learning how to do this)

Heheh, Piper is quite the badass! A sweet, cute little badass. That's pretty damn adorable how she came to her aid like that!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yeah she is. I'm actually quite surprised at how attached I have become to my own characters. I would have thought that because I invented them, that they would not register with me that way.

I have to say, you use different camera angles really well. I often get stuck in a few camera angles and repeat them to infinity, although I'm trying to learn my way out of it.

Thank you Jolle! I've never been artistically trained in a formal setting. I've gone to the school of Youtube and Googling for advice. Because your comic is so slick and awesome, that is a great compliment!!

That you are self-taught makes your already impressive art even more impressive!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thanks Matt. I have to confess though that you are among the artists here on Comic Fury who's art and composition and story boarding I look very closely at and learn from.

Woah... I really like their established friendship AND I like how much of gangsta Piper is.
As usual, you never fail to impress, my friend.

Hey, Thank you very much Outlaw. I am really trying hard to endear Piper to the reader.

I must admit I dread doing a page of chat if the location is too mundane and although I love Woods art enormously a lot of his panel ideas just don't seem to work with my style. Your page read really nicely though and I particularly love the aerial shot most here! XD

Thank you Sky! I am happy that it has turned out.

I always forget Wally's 22 panels too, he was a master. A comic is a visual story, and Skweeeeeeeeeeeeeeee does it well!

Thank you Mo! I know you'd appreciate my attempt to learn from one of the trailblazers who basically wrote the language and laws of comics storytelling.

Nice "camera angles". Top down is like the hardest perspective for me to draw but you did it pretty nice.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
DizzasterJuice, thanks. I've noticed that as I pregress in this; my first serious effort at making a comic story, I get a little more daring with angles and such.

I love long dialogue pages.
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
yeah! I'm learning that it's way easier to portray action than it is to make a conversation visually interesting.

Skyangel is actually a master at it. Making one of the most challenging things to do look easy.

IT was nice to come back and read about 10 pages at once, as I tend to do... good stuff !
Skweeee edit delete reply

Thanks Bear, I'm glad that you are liking it.

Man I really like the way you do your pages. It really reminds me of how they use to do it. Namely Neil Gaiman and Dave Gibbons
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Thank you DomDijon. I love Dave Gibbons' comic art.

I'm also a fan of Herge, Jean Giraud, Caza, Richard Corben as influences.

My favorite current artists at the moment include; Paul Pope, Tradd Moore, and Luke Pearson to name just a few.

Haha! Piper showing her pimp hand!

Wonderful page moving the camera everywhere!
Skweeee edit delete reply
Skweeee
Yep. Everyone learns to not mess with her.

Thanks. For the camera angles, I will give credit to Wally Wood's 22 panels.

Thank you Sephirencomics. I refer to Wally Woods' 22 panels that always work. It's an amazing reference for sequential art storytellers.
