Text of comic book 1a

  • OUTLINE BRIEFThe main theme for this project is to make a comic book based on

    mythology with modern twist to it. I will be working towards a story

    board from an existing mythology story. Even though my storyboard

    will be based on an existing mythological story, I will be making my own

    mythological character designs such as creatures, people and

    illustrations to go with it. My final outcome will be constructed using

    Quark Express, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photo-

    shop. I will be making two, double page spreads including, a front cover

    for my comic book. But if I do happen to complete the first two spread-

    sheets in time, I will continue to add extra spreadsheets in my comic

    book.

    I hope to present my project on a monitor in the centre of my show

    space along side with a comic book. I have also discussed my ideas and

    concept of my final major project with my tutors.

    Some of my earliest idea is to take scenery from exiting movies such as

    Clash of the Titan or Jason and the Argonauts and re illustrative it in

    comic book using my own character designs.

    TARGET AUDIENCETo the young generation mythology seems to appear as insignificant or

    not important, so the main aim and target of this project is get the

    younger generation interested in myth. The main target audience is 13

    years and above.

    INFLUENCE/MOTIVATIONI will be carrying on my research from the following below:

    Mythology (myth creatures and mythology from different country)

    Films (Clash of the Titan)

    History of Comic such as Golden age of comics and Silver age of

    Gnomon workshop

    ACTION PLANWeeking Ending: 26 FEBRUARY

    Between now the ending of this week, I carry on various research to

    gained inspirational ideas and concept behind comic book designing and

    the historical content of mythology. Through out the research, I will

    discuss on the layout and composition of comic books, character design,

    the mood been created, the use of brushwork and colours.

    Weeking Ending: 26 March

    After been influenced and motivated by the work of others, I will move

    on in sketching my ideas and concept basing on a existing mythology

    movie. I will start off by working the character and the background

    design. I will make sure to use a variety of art techniques such, lino

    prints, dry point printmaking, spray-painting and mono printing. I will

    experiment with traditional paintwork using acrylic paint, watercolours

    and inks.

    Weeking Ending: 28 May

    By beginning of this week, I will work main design using my sketch work

    as the base. Using softwares such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photo-

    shop, Adobe Acrobat and Quark Express, I will complete my comic

    book design. After my illustration and designs are completed, I will me

    visiting printing companies to get some quotes in the cost of printing

    and an advise on the best way to present my final major project in ex-

    hibition. An other alternative of presenting my work will be on a inter-

    active smart board which will be made using Adobe Acrobat.

  • L i n e l Yu

    LINELYULinel Yu has produced a variety of creative and imaginative illustrations

    and digital artworks. His style of artwork is totally different compared

    to other previous artists. Linel Yu designs, I supposed most aspects of

    his illustration have been created traditionally or hand made. I was

    inspired with most his background, which I would like to experiments

    with ink, acrylic paints, graphic pens, crayons, pencil colours, water-

    colours and others in creating my comic book. Through out, I noticed

    Linel uses warm colours and earthly colours. In creating my comic book,

    I would created a style of my own and record it, using the action plan

    in Photoshop. With my designed recorded, I will repeat the style on

    other sketch images or photographs. I was inspired and motivated by

    Linel Yus designs to use such an ideal.

    CARLOS EZQUERRACarlos Ezquerra is the creator of the violent Judge Dreddcomic. He

    was in Spain but lived in England in most of his life. In 1977, he began

    working in British comics. Judge Dredd, was written by John Wagner

    and Pat Mills but made its first appearance in 2000 AD magazine. Besides

    Judge Dredd, Carlos designed the graphics for Bloody Mary, Strontium

    Dog, and Als Baby.

    I decided to intensively research on this particular artist because I

    admired his style and hope, his work may have influence through out

    my comic book. I also admire his attention to detail in every aspect

    through out every process i.e. from pencilling, inking and colouring.

    Coming across Judge Dredd comics motivated me, to study most of

    his work.

    I presume all his digital artwork have been completed and finalized on

    Photoshop. I noticed that most of Carloss characters have vibrant and

    dominant colours. Also he represents creases on his characters by inner

    glow, tinted or blur. I like the page layout style he uses in creating his

    comic pages. I also took notice that most of his colouring texture has

    spray-painting effect on the character custom. I was also inspired with

    his background style, which I presume, he uses different brush stokes

    and scattered brush effects to form. I also presumed some aspects of

    his designs; he uses photographs, which were manipulated in Adobe

    Photographs. By looking at and focusing at his artwork, I suppose Carlos

    experiment with image adjustment filters and artistic effects. Since the

    colours of his characters are bright and vibrant, most his background

    have warm and calm colours which makes the characters stand out,

    which is an aspect which I would like pay attention to in creating my

    comic book. I would like use 3 dimensional effects, especially on the

    background effect. I would also make sure to pay major attention on

    tonal colours or skin tones. Some of his design appears or seems like

    it was constructed in Adobe Illustrator. I assume, he uses the flare tool

    to complete sections of his digital artwork.

    DAVE MCKEANMcKean is best known for creating graphic novels, which includes his

    bestselling Arkham Asylum. He also creates hundreds of graphics for

    CDs, comic covers and books. Besides his own projects, he collabo-

    rates with other artist such Neil Gaiman in designing the comic book

    cover of Sandman.

    Most of Dave McKean written books deal with superstition and

    mythology. Also his illustrations are based mix media (photography, art-

    work and digital illustration) approach. I was mostly inspired with his

    photography of materials and image manipulations of textures. He also

    uses seems to like overlapping layers and different concept together

    which I presume, attract viewers. In creating my comic book, I will ex-

    periment with overlapping manipulated images to create a creative and

    effective, sceneries and backgrounds. I will also experiment with image

    adjustment, to create similar outcomes like Dave Mckeans illustration.

    comic book creator. The following are Captain America, the X-Men, The

    Incredible hulk, the Fantastic Four, The Silver Surfer, The Mighty Thor

    and hundreds of other characters.

    I also researched on Jack Kirbys comic character collections and comic

    book covers, to get inspirational ideas for my comic book. I noticed in

    most of his comic book covers
