I am torn about comic onomatopoeia. I concede the necessity but it just makes me laugh half the time. If anybody could clue me in on resources for more creative sound effects, I'd love some tips!
First off, I love that you're doing this adaptation (amazing books!), and that you are doing them so well! You really are doing the story justice with your art.
Secondly, have you tried writtensound.com?
Thirdly, if you are on FB or Twitter, you should check on the Webcomic Underdogs and #webcomicchat, respectively, where a lot of creators gather to discuss tips and etc :)
Thank you so much! I have loved these books for over twenty years and am so glad to be able to apply my passion to something (hopefully) lasting.
It also removes the bad taste of the Disney film from my mouth. *ahem*
Thank you for the links! I will check out all of those.
Awesome, awesome, AWESOME! *dies of squee*
*performs CPR* You can't die yet! We're not even through chapter two!
*gaaaasssp* Okay! I'm back! What did I miss?
dammit, you missed Gurgi's intro and the gwythaint attack. Now I have to go back and do them again.
For sound effects, I normally think of the actual sounds I want, such as "what exactly does this sound sound like?" Then try to write it up. I think to just try to be natural with it will bode you good results.
great panels... nice POV and cut scenes
This is a book I probably read 25 times 25 years ago, and it is so trippy to see it come alive, in familiar details I could not have summoned to my conscious mind. I don't remember the burning baskets, though. They have great emotional impact.
They're in there! Alexander pulled no punches over the youth of his audience, which I love. Also this is another tie-in with Celtic lore (though the historical accuracy is up for debate on whether reports of human sacrifice were exaggerated by the Romans), and I try to give homage to that whenever I can. It grounds this series so well.
I am so happy that you’re making this! The Book of Three is one of the best fantasy stories ever written, and the basket scene is maybe my favorite scene in all of fiction full stop. I think that you absolutely did it justice, thank you!
LOL well, that's a first. Out of all the scenes...well, it's dramatic, I'll give you that! Thanks so much for your comment and for reading - I'm so glad you discovered it!
I promise, it's not because I'm a psycho! I'ts just that I think it's one of the most effective scenes in all of fiction. The first time I read that book I was...man I don't even remember but I was young like YOUNG and I'm almost 17 now and I've carried that scene through all the years.
Whenever I reread it (as I am more wont to do now) I always anticipate this scene with dread and anticipation. I love it so much.
Points for conciseness on Gwydion's part, but I guess it's good Smoit never heard that he said that. ;)
LOL good catch and I'm impressed by your attention to detail. I forgot about Caer Cadarn. Will amend that line when this page gets its overhaul.
I was so surprised when I read this scene in the book. I totally didn't expect such type of thing is a children's book. Yet, Lloyd made it in a very subtle way... Brilliant!
As well as your art, which is also amazing
