Photocomic: The Shadow Knows

This is my current project, mulling over while I await something much bigger. I had a character arc in mind for Megaplex, and thought I'd give his little story some photos. I hope you like it.

I'm intrigued by the story! Are you using anything for inspiration?

I have a couple of questions about the camera though: what are you using, where are you shooting, at what time? Sometimes the flash makes the images hard to take in properly, or the opposite happens, and they're too dark.

But nice work so far! :APPLAUSE:

My inspiration came when I read Megaplex bio card and tech specs. Any more than that would be telling.

As for the camera, I primarily use my iPhone 4's built in device, and I shot this somewhere between midnight and 2, and edited dialogue with photoshop and MSpaint between 2 and 3. Still working on the lighting and the backgrounds; in panel 2 it's especially obvious Megaplex is in front of a screen.

I'm glad you like it. My work schedule means I won't be updating for another week (at least) but this storyline should go a bit smoother than Vanity of a Name did, now that I've worked out some of the early installment kinks.

Anyway, you have your own comic to update, my friend. ;)

Hm. I find shooting during the day or with more light in the room works better, if you don't have an actual 'studio'. Means you can get rid of the flash, and colours/lines look sharper.

But yeah, good stuff. :D

(Insert quip here)

Also, hopefully I can update a little faster the next time around, though that depends on whether Screamer consents to transform, the fiddly little #@$!

I apologize for the lengthy delay. As offering to those who've patiently waited for this story to continue, I present a similarly lengthy update! The added time gave me room to expand on a subplot, to fill in more of the clones' ideology and creation.

And, of course, the added wait gave me time to include a little add-on kit... :-?

I hope you enjoy what I've whipped up:

Won't make any promises with update timeframe, as the next sequence will probably take longest of all to choreograph and shoot. But I hope you'll see through to the end, and the final battle between the template and the shadow!
