Hello. Here is Page 4 of the second chapter of the Pumpkin Man series. It’s twice as long as chapter one so far, and I’ll probably end chapter 2 on the next page. You can read the story thus far here.
Sorry if the terrorists aren’t always drawn the same way. Consistency is still hard for me. As you can see, this page has multiple pure-black backgrounds, instead of shaded ones. While it may seem like trivia to some, I feel like these black backgrounds are a staple of the series, compared to Shadow Wide, which has a lot of shading.
This page also has a lot of subject switching and close-ups, so it feels almost like a manga to me, except the characters are bearded men instead of pretty-boys. This page’s layout feels a bit too squeezed to me. I’ve often felt the need to loosen up in my layouts.
This page ends in a smash. The pumpkin the terrorist broke earlier went smash, too. It must have been an expensive pumpkin.
Shadow Wide page 5 has been finished. I decided to be like all the sane bloggers and post the whole page instead of just a single panel, like I did before. If this gives away a part of the story you have not read yet, please complain.
Sorry that Peter’s horse looks like a giraffe. Animals are difficult to draw.
You can read the story thus far here, or you can click on the image as well to read the the story thus far.
Again, I’m posting another illustration about the SAT test. My teacher didn’t like the past three illustrations because they weren’t uplifting enough. So here, I have the students who succeeded at the test ascending into Heaven (the central figure with the crown received a perfect score of 2400). The students who failed to reach the average score of 1538 are burning in hell and being tortured by demons. One of the students received a score of zero. It’s not really possible to receive a zero, I think, but I gave him a zero anyway. I realize that the composition isn’t that good (my brother said the figure with the zero should be centralized), but I am kind of in a rush.
I think the allegorical meaning is pretty clear.
I’m about halfway done with the next page of Shadow Wide. I haven’t had much time to work lately.
