Sunday Sketch #5
One of the biggest choices I made while creating this comic was to not use dialogue. I chose to do this because as I was brainstorming I found it vey hard to tell such a short story and use dialogue. I began to think about the saying, “A picture speaks 1000 words”. This made me start thinking about how I could tell a story with just images. I knew I wanted to use a sign for the first panel because it was an easy way to communicate what setting the scene is taking place. Once I knew I was using a speed limit sign the rest of my idea followed.
This Sunday Sketch was a little different from anything we’ve done so far because in the past we’ve just created a single picture. Now, however, we have to combine 3 different pictures to create a story with a beginning, middle, and end. Personally, I prefer this because it forced me to think about both what I was drawing and how it would fit into something bigger, in this case the comic.
