The Legend of Spyro: Faded Thunder

<< 31--|32|--33>>


Trying stuff out :la:
This page was done 100% digitally, and I've chosen this because it's a lot easier to alter drawings that don't look right to me, and it's better for arranging things in panels :D. I will experiment in later pages with types of digital page until I find something I like. This week's is just a tidied sketch (typically what I do on paper). I'd probably do something similar with thinner, cleaner lines in the future. I really really regret using such a thick weight. :XD:

The softness of the pencils is something I'm going to miss, and may likely go back to after these experiments if I don't find anything. But these experiments need to happen~

oh mama, Cassy looks like a snake in the first panel...

A prequel is an excellent idea for a story, and your art is great! You've really captured the style of the video games designs, in my opinion.

If you don't mind a small suggestion, could you put in the comments of each page which characters are in that page? Like for example, I can tell these two characters are Cassire and Volteer, but in some of the other pages, when you're doing a large group of dragons, it's hard to tell who is who. The characters have such slight differences, I'm having trouble telling them apart. So the scene with the council meeting was very confusing to me, I couldn't tell which character was talking. If you just made a note in the comments of the page that said something like "This is Ignitus and Terrador arguing about such and such", it would help solve a lot of the confusion, I think.

Another example, on page 28 I had no idea who was arguing with Kegan until I read your comment that said "Harsh, Dimitri." Then I understood the scene, since you established earlier that Dimitri was Terrador's apprentice. So comments about who is the page would be really helpful.

Thanks for your consideration. :)

Thank you for the feedback! I will keep this in mind for the future pages, I may go back to writing the transcript in the description too like I did in older comics, but writing a description may be better ^^ thank you again!
