First Comics: 2004 Jenhannu Intro and Outro
Before I started "making comics", many of my early drawings were inspired by comic artists such as Charles Schultz, Berkely Breathed, and Gary Larson. My drawings were one-offs, copying comics that inspired me. Even though they were all comic-related it was many years later when I started to actually make comics.
A videogame project I was working on circa 2004 called Jenhannu is what I got me into actual comic storytelling. It was a role-playing game that used a lot of comics symbols/language in the UI.
The comic below was part of Jenhannu's finished demo and presented in two parts. Five pages total, the first three pages introduced the first scenario.The second two pages closed out the scenario and the overall game demo.
The art is by yours truly, story by Javen Ackerman of thewinchcombe.com.
I'll post more of my old work from time to time... I find it informative to look back and see the ways my art has improved and consider what I really like about some of the old work.
