I love it.

Have you considered doing this as an actual ''digital comic'' film?

Some of these capture it better than others...

And maybe I should of said "Motion Comics' rather than digital.

Watchmen comes real close.

Yea Johnny, when I first started thinking about this I imagined something like that but a lot simpler.  More akin to how Kate put it in the dilemma post.  A camera panning around the page, some music, some sound effects and maybe some voice overs.  Perhaps even the occasional lip sync from crazytalk.  Still something to consider but Id like to get this series complete first which is a ways down the road.  Thanks for replying! 

 

Page 7 is um...cranked up to eleven?!  Well Splendini and Mr Bonaventure are on the road and this page has more dialog than any other.  You really get to know them as people...Well, perhaps not but this is the page where I kinda figured out how to create curved lines in gimp.  Sounds simple but alas, it was not.  Also considered using speed lines on some of these frames or even a motion blur but I just couldnt get ti right so this is what you get.

 

Don't worry.  There's more action and gunplay afoot tomorrow

I used inkscape to make dialogue boxes, I didn't know you could do it in gimp. Lots of hard to find features in that program!

This gets better as you go TB.

way back when there was discussion of a Splendini Movie I dreamt of him as a circus motocross stuntman.  He sat on my hard drive for a bit and ended up being the perfect character for this project.  Splendini recycled.

GIMP is just about as good as photoshop if you are willing to figure things out.  Nothing is automatic but the tools are there.

Page 8 is at the plate.  This was the first page I worked on after a two week break.  The top split frame was intended to be a full split square taking up two thirds of the page but I couldn't get the perspectives right and settled for what it is leaving the bottom two frames to present the cornering abilities of the two vehicles.  I get the feeling this might be the tipping point...harhar.

 

Only 2 pages left in part 1 (plus a bonus "fun" page).  Stay tuned.  Tomorrow's got a one-liner.

Page 9 is online.   The action rolls on and part #1 will conclude tomorrow.

 

Im interested in hearing from anyone about the things that didn't work for them.  Have there been any confusing transitions or actions?  

 

What do folks think of the way I'm simply lining the pictures up to scroll down for viewing?  On a bad connection this could be a pain in the ass for some to download all the pictures at once.  Im also putting the strip up on Comic Fury and it features one page per screen.  Its a nice setup (all free) I think but there's something to be said for the uninterrupted scroll.  

 

Anywho, all opinions are welcome.

Heres page ten and we've reached the end.

 

With this post I realized that only 10 images are allowed in a post.  With the cover and the letters page I'm 2 over so I had to post the last two in a new post.  Anywho, that's all there is for part 1.  Hope you enjoyed it.  I'm slowly releasing it on Comic Fury and when thats done (another week or so) Ill show it to the reallusion forum and give away those 3D glasses for free in the marketplace.  Then if I ever complete the Great TMU Movie Project its off to Part 2 of The Man Who.  See you then.

That's easily changed - 15? 20? Just make a suggestion and it will be so.

 

And I personally like the scrolling - makes it easier to see things in context.
