Is it just me, or do my comic pages just not look like comic pages? They always feel...off. The originals don't feel as off as the scans do, and printed copies just make me cringe. I really need to figure out what the disconnect is, so I can remedy it as fast as possible. If you guys see anything that you think might help, please let me know. Critique is always desired. Most of these shots are centered and have nothing framing the characters within the panel, so maybe that's part of it.
These pages were test pages for a concept I want to work on involving autobio shots from my stupid teenage years. I've always had trouble with autobio comics, and I really don't want to rely on captions, but I also don't want a stupid amount of expository dialogue either. I have to script each page a couple times just to tweak away unnecessary dialogue.
Well, next page will be better.
