N.E.C the Awakening
« on: May 14, 2015, 11:04:34 PM »
Ok this is new to me I couldn't figure out how to post my word file for this so ima just copy and past. I want people to critique this and tell me your thoughts/ opinions/ advice. I had a novelist look at this and said it was good. im not looking for grammar, im trying to paint the picture to help out the artist when I finally can get one to work with me. (THERE IS CURRENTLY NO TITLE (mainly because I cant think of one yet)). Im really excited about what I have so far.
Title
Page 1:
?   Panel 1:
?   Stage: background consists of a burning town, an overview look (looking down on character). Main character (Andrew) is floating above town.
?   Andrew: “This dream again? It’s the 5th time these past 9 day’s”.
Page 2:
?   Panel 1:
?   Stage: background is still a burning town but now Andrew is closer to the ground, can see if front of him as if you are looking into the distance. Now can see dead bodies and some blood stains and screaming bodies. Closer view on Andrew.
?   Andrew: “Oh my god!… there’s dead people this time”.

Another crawling around a car reaching an arm out and crying for help (missing left leg, and blood trail from one of the houses to car (whatever age and gender)). One male police officer sitting along a vehicle dead with 3 holes in chest (holes from lasers, bleeding from holes, sitting in puddle of blood).
?   Panel 2:
?   Stage: Looking over Andrew towards his head (you see his back). Background consists of Andrew’s house with a brick wall. Door to house on floor in splinters, iron gate to brick wall bent inwards and almost off hinges. Damage to brick wall all over, house on fire as well.

Re: My Manga with no Title ( For Now)
« Reply #1 on: May 15, 2015, 12:27:22 AM »
Honestly, I've never really criticized anybody elses work, but I'll give it a try.

I really loved how even though you don't draw, you wrote out and knew how everything was going to look. I think that's awesome and I was able to visualize everything you wrote.

I like where the preface of where the story is going, not much I can really say right now since it's the first chapter.

I think the only thing, that caught my eye, was when you wrote he was out for 20 min. Not really a huge issue, but I probably wouldn't want to say he was out for that long because normally he would probably be at the nurse's office at the point. Maybe if he was out for 10 min, I could probably see the Nurse taking that long and him still being in the classroom with all the students. That's just me though.

I guess one other thing was the transfer student (Felicia) entrance. Thinking back on it, after reading it, I thought maybe it was awkward for her to stand at the door for a while, especially when Clair is looking out the door as well. We know that she was there for a bit, because she saw what had happened based on her introduction. I think if maybe the principal took her to the classroom, or if Andrew was at a Nurses office and wasn't causing a scene, maybe it would fit better?

But that's really about it, it got me interested to learn what happens next, and I like how it doesn't really give out too much information at the very beginning. Hope that helps bud :)

Sorry I couldn't get to this earlier, I was distracted with other things. 


Anyways I think it was pretty good with the panels until you reached page 5 panel 2. That is way too much to put down in one panel.  First that panel would take up most of the page and because details are smaller there is a drop in how well it can be drawn.  A better option if you really wanted to show that scene is a 2 page spread.  Next thing is that you don't need to constantly show the same setting more than once unless is is like a drastic thing like flipping the tables as a page turner.  If you wanted to go about showing where Andrew sits you can just show everyone seated while Andrew is going to sit down. 


Other than that I was surprised in the beginning (I was totally thinking aliens) but I can see this building up
