Un-men Tuesday 5/27

Man, I'm so busy today that I almost forgot it was Tuesday!

Anyway, John wrote some great atmospheric scenes for this issue. I had great fun drawing all the rainy spookiness. Wait till you see how this one ends!!

Really like how you shook up the camera angle on all of the panels. Makes that sequence seem more dramatic. Middle panel being the best in my opinion.

Were those your choice or John's?

Thanks man.

No, the angles are basically me. I mean, John will say things like "medium shot of Kilcrop running down the alley" or whatever but for the most part he doesn't get TOO specific about WHERE the camera should be.

In this sequence, Kilcrop is having a REALLY bad day (trying hard not to spoil anything here) and his head aint quite right, so I tried to push that with the art. For the most part, if you have the luck of working with a writer as good as John is, all you have to really do is take his ideas and just try and drive them home visually.
