This is page 16 of my Graphic novel. The parts that are animated on this page is Ben rubbing his tired eyes, Dasher looking from left to right, and Fracture stepping into view with his foot showing on panel 3.

I like this page, because in panel one, I have designed the lighting to show that it is morning where Ben is. It will prove to the reader that 7 hours has truly passed. Plus, I chose it to be yellow because I wanted to us a different method of showing lighting inside a room.

Layouts

I have been working on the layouts of my Graphic novel to help me map out where the characters are positioned. I will think about doing some more layouts, but at the time I was mainly thinking about the indoor layouts. I wanted to improve on my skills as a graphic novelist, because by doing layouts I can position my characters to where ever I want them to be in the future. I have uploaded these into my art book.

This is page 14 of my graphic novel. Again, not animated, but I think this is my favourite page that I have ever done for my graphic novel. I have made the background effective that presents Dasher in the most epic way that I have ever done him. I have originally designed this pose of Dasher off my phone and imported it into my page as a PNG image. I can honestly say that I am glad that I have done this pose of him on my phone when I had the chance.

For page 7, I have done some research on what different blurs look like. I have look up which once are the most inspiring to me that would work well with my Dasher character for my Graphic novel.

In my opinion, these all look great, but it has me thinking of my own blur effect to generate. I was thinking about a blur effect that doesn’t make Dasher’s body look blurry to look at. His body will be a normal running pose, and around him will be a blanket of blue glowing haze that acts as a shield.

Based on Mario’s 1 to 1 feedback, I thought that I would take the time to redraw the school in page 2. Now that its done, I think this image is much more better than how I planned for it to look. I have added shading and lighting over the building as well as the name of the school. The name of the school is so that the reader knows where they are in the story. I have also added detail to improve on my sketching.

Mario has just had a talk with me about my work. He likes what I post onto tumblr.

He is impressed with my semester 2 planner, however the dates where I put on pages to do for my graphic novel need to have where I done the animation for them. I other words, he wanted to know when I’m doing animation. In addition, he told me that my CV should take a day to complete and that I should show it to a lecturer so I will know how to keep changing it.

He has looked at my graphic novel, and has given me some suggestions  on details. On page 2, I showed him the school. Mario suggested that I should show it in a different angel so that he knows that it is a school. On page 3 where Lucas and Julie are, Mario mentioned to me that I should animate Julie stroking her hear, and Lucas pulling on his shirt. Lastly on page 5, the panels where the backgrounds are blank with yellow and blue, Mario suggested that I should animate the background changing colour.

I have been looking for information on the internet on how comics can be written and drawn faster. This video has been given me a tutorial on how to do faster drawings.

As I’ve been working on my graphic novel, I felt like I’m drawing to slow, as if my own comics were to be published in every year instead of every month or week. I can see that I normally get 3 or 4 pages done each week. In my future, I want to learn how to get comics done faster so that I can publish my stories every week or month instead of every year.

I understand that some comics are written and drawn by groups, but currently I am not in any group. I hope from this reference video, I can learn to keep working and find ways to draw faster.

This is page 11 of my animated Graphic novel of Dasher broken reality. I am proud of finishing this today, because I have managed to stay on my time table sheet and worked harder to animate and draw faster on Photoshop. I have animated panel 1 where the glass shards are falling over the panels, panel 3 where the Snatcher has motion lines in the background, and panel 4 where the Snatcher has Julie in it’s grasp. Personally, panel 4 is my best panel so far.

I have been looking on YouTube to see some blur effects that would help me think of new ideas for my Dasher graphic novel. I have found a short clip video of an episode of Ben 10 that has given me some new ideas. Soon in my graphic novel, I’ll plan to draw Dasher’s legs in a circular motion that will show his super speed run. I’m hoping that it’ll work on Adobe Photoshop, just because it’s a different animation software.

I have come across this on YouTube and found something out. Turns out, when you make comics or graphic novels, it usually takes up to 2-3 months of continuous work. This video is from a graphic novelist called Eric who is part of detective comics.

This has me worried about my future, because I had hoped that doing my our comic/graphic novel will be much more faster and easier. If issues takes that long,then a single Volume could take a lot longer. Perhaps a year or two would be how long it will take.
