I hate to just leave you with a page like this but I’m afraid this is the spread for the week. Sorry. But I will assure you that the next few weeks will pay off quite well. :)
See you next week!
Not disappointed at all, I think it’s a really nice pause.
Holy cow, that looks good. How did you make such an effect?
Lots of experimenting and layers in Photoshop. :)
I think this spread will be great in the printed version! A wonderful rhythm in the story. If you’re anything like me, I’d be willing to bet that you probably labored over this spread more than the previous couple spreads. XD
Haha! Yeah, the more simple they are the harder it is to get it right. I went through about 3 versions of this spread before I settled on this one. And yeah, it’s all about how it flows in the book. :)
Is that light shining through his blood in the water? Loving the effect.
I wonder if thats the Invisible or someone else he knows calling him… Can probably figure it out by comparing the text bubble colour. At first I thought it was Cyrene rising up with “The Anemone” behind her but her text is red or pinkish from memory.
Beautiful, Jason. I love it. Just one problem that I can see: the spine. I don’t want a spine down the middle of this spread. I really want this to stay digital. Beautiful job.
PS. That brings up an interesting idea. I wonder how easy it would be to make a template that translates to many different forms of media? From book, with that spine down the middle, to iPad (the perfect environment for this sort of thing), to smartphone (a very limited environment). It would have to be a very rigid template that may restrict dynamic compositions, and thus possibly hinder story-telling. Yet, I wonder if it could be done in an engaging way. Hmmmm….
You haven’t seen the iPad books yet, have you?
You should. The navigation goes from page-to-page to panel-to-panel and even in-panel where necessary. It’s beautifully done and totally makes use of the tecnology. The printed version, to me, does not suffer from the spine zone. It even takes advantage of it sometimes.
