Proof of Concept


Wayne Gray

462 views

In Fleeting Eternity, Tad, one of the main characters is an artist.  He drew in a graphic novel style, and he depicted many of his experiences in a sequential way - essentially creating a wordless, "novel" of his life over the span of a few years.

So many readers asked if the story was based on something I had read, if there was such a book.  It made me think about the possibilities, and mourn my lack of skill with drawing.

I'm nothing if not stubborn, so I thought around the problem.  I purchased a good digital camera, and I subscribed to a photo editing program I had already learned to use (it has a free version I had tinkered with for over a year).  And now, I'm trying things out.

Graphic Novel Project - Proof of Concept

I really like the first panel.  The goal, eventually, will be to tell a wordless story.  One anybody can follow, one told within the pages of a comic book length work (about 22 pages, 3-4 panels a page).

First, I have Silverwolf to finish.  But, once that's done, then it will be time to truly focus and see what it is I can do with visual elements alone.

Maybe I should stick to words, I don't know.  But, I'll never know unless I try.

I'm gonna try.

I think it's an awesome idea! Do the thing. See how it goes. :) 

Thanks, Thorn.  I need to work on my photography skills (hah!), but I'll tinker until I get it right.
