Comic Strip Exercise

These past few days I've been reading the book, Making Comics by Scott McCloud. Ive really been enjoying it and it's great to see all the best techniques, approaches and concepts that go toward making comics and graphic novels in one place. I tried to create an exercise for myself that involved taking some of the concepts discussed in the initial chapters. These included, camera angle, posing, pacing a story and establishing mood.

I think maybe the frame treatment is a little distracting but I had a lot of fun making them and I think it also helps illustrate the somewhat claustraphobic feeling you might get from living in a bunker on alien infested Earth. Ive also come to the realization that Im no letterer..but that was fun to do also! :}

Next time though, I must remember to draw Professor Bing's dreadknot on top of his head.
