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.
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.
