Japanese Manka is the first I can think of when the topic of graphic novel was introduced. So I tried to create one in that style. I can’t draw well so I give up drawing on my own but found my favorite cartoon character to be the character of my graphic novel.
For the content, I wanted to create a graphic novel based on daily movements, like getting up in the morning and going to a shower. And I wanted to add humor in to my work.
I think the most I learned about is about frame. My classmates had different-shaped frames, like water drop or circle, but I only have squares and rectangular because I only had pictures. I like their frames better because it fits more to the story and creates a kind of atmosphere for their stories.
Just to remind myself for the next time or whenever I want to look back to this project:
1, there’s better be grid between the water cooker (or whatever it should be called)
2, less meaningless color
3, more detailed movements
