(That's totally a napalm bomb or something, where the point is to set fire to the general vicinity/poor guys in the vicinity in question, but it's good for Yana because it means she won't spend the rest of the comic nursing burst eardrums/CTBI from the shock wave, so...)
And onto business! Y'all, I'm in progress on a Real Live nonfiction biographical comic about a con man during WWII. I posted something about it here about a year ago. I'm really lucky to have the chance and I want to do it justice. And that's where you come in.
If you read the preliminary thumbnailed version I've got so far and give me your thoughts on it/tell me what I need to fix, I'd draw you something of your choice, color, black and white, your characters or whatever -- it's up to you. (Also, you'd have my undying gratitude, but talk is cheap. :P )
(For those of you who have already, you can get a retroactive drawing if you want.)
I'm just glad that I'm not the only one who finds this funny.
So, the other comic. It's great! Interesting beginning to draw one in, strong storytelling / characters to keep one interested, and finally a satisfying and emotional ending to wrap things up.
One of my favourite individual pages has to be #5, the one where you cover the German invasion. Really cinematic stuff. I think there maybe could be more of that; short scenes about the war and general situation in the world, just to sort of convey a better feeling of the time that the comic takes place in? I do like how the story flows on as it is, though, and the pacing is spot-on.
The violin scene was really beautiful, by the way.
