To learn how to make a graphic novel, I decided to start by making a mini comic. I picked a favorite scene from the Eragon books by Christopher Paolini to adapt into comic book form. I have finished the layout and rough pencils. Before going to ink/shading, I was hoping to get some fresh eyes on it to make sure the story works. Can you help?
- Does the story make sense? Were any parts confusing?
- Does the pacing feel good? Was anything too slow/fast?
- The art is still in a rough stage but hopefully conveys what is going on.
Here is a link to the rough story (the cover is blank, open the book to read!)
Eragon Mini Comic Proof
Thank you! This has been a blast to work on. The project has been educational about how much work goes into a comic. It's challenging but I'm enjoying all the steps! Character design, set design, scripting, panel layouts, speech bubbles, whew! And I still have to draw the thing. I think it'll be a good portfolio piece when it's done.
