I would like more interaction between Thorin ans Thranduil, there’s not much in the book I there will be more in the 3rd movie.
Oh man fighting with cia is like the coolest thing ever, her attacks are simultaneously badass and hilarious
Gonna get that hero of hyrule dlc today
THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER
they both look a little nervous about what the other one might write
then just the biggest smiles when they are reassured yet again how much they just love each other
Yet another one Thranduil, this time slightly more dynamic. While I really like painting Lee Pace’s face, the white hair is an absolute pain in the ass, so maybe I’ll restrain from that for a while ;)
As usual, open in new tab for higher res. And please do so, because Tumblr does something weird with more squareish images.
Smash right now
i would literally never play this game again if that happened to me
So because I’m pretty dissatisfied with the way Lana and Cia were written in Hyrule Warriors, I decided to do my own rewrite of their character/story arc. I didn’t honestly change much so I may repeat stuff, I just altered a few details here and there and came up with my own explanation for some blanks. Though I did change their ending slightly.
So, Lana and Cia were originally one sorceress tasked with the duty of guarding the Triforce balance, as shown. I’m calling their conjoined overseer form Lacia (alternatively, she could just be called Cia since I’m assuming Cia is the original of the two.) Lacia exists in somewhat of her own isolated plain deep in the forest. She’s an all seer and a crystal gazer, obviously peering through time and space to watch the Legend unfold in the other reality. You could call this somewhat of a pastime as she is bound eternally to look after the Triforce balance. She is regulated to her task and her task only but, as time goes on, she begins to covet the world she’s looking into, and a life on the outside in the real world, because she’s never known anything other than this.
honestly most of the alternate costume recolours in hyrule warriors just look like someone had a field day in ms paint
Link looks SO CONFUSED and slightly offended
"hylian captain is in trouble!"
Ah geeze, my page layouts are all pretty standard, actually. Most of what I know I picked up from comics I’ve read, and advice from friends.
I like to follow the KISS rule: Keep It Simple, Stupid. 95% of my Fritz pages look like this:
Things I think are important:
- Big panels feel like they have more time passing in them, while smaller panels feel very quick. Open panels can create a great scene of lingering or slowed time (don’t put them too close together, it can get confusing when they’re touching.)
- Establishing shots to open new scenes, so the reader knows where the fuck we are and what characters are there. If you’re going back to an already established location, you can fudge it and rely on ‘land marks’ of the location.
- Gutters, they separate your panels and give them room to breath, and clarity. I like to avoid black gutters for this reason.
- Breaking the panel should be used sparingly, but is a great way to make the action really ‘pop’.
- Every page should have at least one background, to ground the characters and setting.
- Word bubbles from different panels shouldn’t be too close or touching. Most people read the words on a page first, and this can mess up you panel order by leading their eye wrong.
- Keep dialog short and sweet, don’t cover your characters in words. Save large amounts of text for large panels.
- Show don’t tell. Comics are a visual medium, have fun with your art.
Now, all rules can be broken. I wing pages a lot, and go with my gut when it comes to a lot of my decisions in layout. Comics are visual art first, so if something doesn’t follow the ‘rules’ but feels right/looks good, I’d say go for it. Experiment and have fun! The more comics you draw, the better they get.
Read lots of comic, from different artists, and think about what you like about their work. Movies are great, too, for figuring out tricks for visual transitions and scene layouts. I have a habit of imagining how I would draw some transitions/scenes to get the same feeling in still, black and white pictures.
I hope this helps!
the most t i r e l e s s of all the fellowship
