I had been saying for some time that I'd start posting my Snape comic here - well, this is the day
. I have been posting pages one up to six at my LJ ( [link]
), also with 'Making Of'. I'm not going to re-post those 'Making Of' bits here - I refer you to my journal if you're interested; just follow the 'comic' tags.
The comic is based on Chapter Eighteen, Wormtail, Moony, Padfoot and Prongs
of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
- more specifically on the last few paragraphs in which Lupin informs us of what in fandom has become known as 'the Prank' played by the Marauders on Snape. I am by no means a professional comics artist and haven't actually got a lot of time to work on the story intensively. As a result, a lot of time goes by between the drawing of the individual pages, and I think you will see the development of my style. I started the comic in the late spring of 2004. It should run up to some twenty pages of continuing story.
I am aware of the comic's shortcomings. As I said, I'm not professional, and I think my highly amateurish techniques show
. The greatest weakness probably lies in the storytelling. I know how to tell a story, but I haven't been using a fixed scenario; that could have been a lot better, I think. The problem is that I absolutely wanted to get drawing and tell a tale in pictures; I should have taken more time to think the tale out... Anyway - I hope you may find it entertaining nevertheless. I still love making it.
