RETRIEVERS - page 8-9 by MatteoScalera RETRIEVERS - page 8-9 by MatteoScalera
hey guys,
I'm finally back from NYCC. :)

Here's another page from Retrievers, this time it's a double spread action page, still involving Von Terror VS some SuperBots.
Hope you'll like it!

Teo

well, i don't read 'retrievers'... don't get any good quality comics around here...(if there are any, they'd sell it in such an expensive manner...) but critique is a critique... sooo here we go!!

Panel 1: nice perspective! must be a bothersome doing the background-layouts... you should do more! it's giving the information that it's a city battle... so we know where we are.

Panel 2: so okay, the hero confront his enemies. lights are fully drawn to the hero, making the enemies, even bigger, but less important than the hero at this panel... from here on, i knew that the hero's going to win :D

panel 3: the usual hand,

panel 4: the hero screams,

panel 5: the lightning-superpower...
great... you put on some slow pacing in here...

panel 6, and 7.... baddaboom, baddabing... action filled..

panel 8: the hero wins....

too easy to predict..... the components are dramatizing!! but the information in the story is too short, and predictable... dunno... 2 pages to describe 1 dramatic-action filled character??.... it's too much!..

i know i can't even make a page like this... but yeah...you ask for a critique, you got a critique, sir!! overall scale 0 to 10,... it's 10 for the artist, and 3 for the storyteller.... salute!!!

well, to be honest, I find the "3" on the storytelling a bit unfair, even because there aren't real errors on it, it's just a simple storytelling, so I think 3 is a little too poor.
As for the predictability of the conclusion, well, these bots aren't so importanto for the story, they just work as a sort of introduction for the main character, to show his strenght and his powers, in fact, after a couple of pages, the real enemy will arrive and challenge him.
As for the scene lenght, I think it's just a matter of choices, I simply prefer having more space to tell a story, using a more "manga" storytelling. That's the reason why every issue is 32 pages instead of the usual 22. :)

BTW, thanks for the critique!

you are very welcome, you also do a really good job by not weighing down your panels with too much detail that could interrupt the narrative flow...btw....great work

panels 3 & 5 are different.
they are similar, but are actually 2 different drawings.
no cheap tricks.
for this, you are king.
