Wet Moon 6 page 18

Wet Moon was long overdue for some more barfing. i think the last time anyone threw up was all the way back in volume 4.

Wet Moon 6 page 16 v.2

click for previous version of page with original panel 5

i tinkered with the word balloons in the last panel, what do you guys think about this? i think this is much less confusing. it's not perfect, i should have just designed the panel differently from the get-go, but i think it's way better. i hope there's still time to get it into the finished printed book! keep your fingers crossed!

looking back on pages always brings "what was i thinking? why did i think THAT was the best choice?" moments for me.

Wet Moon 6 page 16

i like this page a lot.

EDIT: updated version with fixed panel 5!

except the final panel here has something i always do and never seem to get any better at avoiding, which is having the character speaking first on the left side of the panel. i think i've talked about this before but maybe that was on the Shadoweyes site... anyway, it's a tough thing because sometimes i forget, but most of the time it's hard because sometimes like this conversation here, it works up through the whole scene, the balloons flowing nicely and being on the same side of the panel as their respective speaker, but then comes a point in the conversation where the characters are still positioned on the same sides but the way the conversation flows doesn't match up. so it's either somehow swivel the camera (which is the part i usually forget until i get to the lettering stage), or write the conversation differently which doesn't always work because it can seem too artificially back-and-forth, or just say the hell with it and do awkward panels like the last one here where the balloon tails point "through" each character.

any professional letterers reading this? i wonder what they do when faced with panels like this.

Wet Moon 6 page 14

which Cleo pairing do YOU like best? obviously Myrtle's got a big strike against her at this point, but some people still seem to like her. hmmmmmmmmmmmm. or do any of you "ship" Cleo with any other character? XD. or any non-Cleo pairings, too, you don't just have to focus on her. i don't think my comics are big enough to get shipped, or they don't hit people in the same spot as really popular things with fandoms like Avatar/Korra or My Little Pony or DC/Marvel comics, but maybe i'll get there one day. :D

in the future i want to have some scenes in the comic detailing Mara's mummy movie, which has been mentioned in the comic in couple times before, hopefully i can fit some stuff in. gotta do some research about what kind of camera equipment college kids use! who should play the mummy... hmm
