Hey Pascalle!! SUPER STOKED FOR WILDE LIFE!! AAA! I'm wondering how you approach scripting/thumbnailing? Do you do all your script first and thumbnail after? A mixture of both? Do you have to end up making changes to the script once you get into the visualizing, and you realize things might not quite work? Or the pacing might be strange? Let me pick your marvellous brain!
Oh, your flattery will get you everywhere! <3 xoxo
For me, I script everything out first, and generally a couple passes of rewrites before I consider it “written.” I like to write stories that are really interconnected, so sometimes I get to the end of a chapter and then totally rewrite the beginning so that it works better. I think of my first pass as the script sketch and the final draft as the drawing.
More on making comics after the cut.
I drew some fan art!
Go over to zapcomic.com and read the best webcomic on the interwebs by artfully written and dramatically drawn by Chris Layfield and Pascalle Lepas, respectively. The comic is nearing the end of it’s many-year run, so hurry.
This was inked in Manga Studio 5, and colored in Photoshop. (I’m not brave enough to color in Manga Studio, yet.)
Beautiful hands, man! wow, thank you!
She sure did rescue that guy that one time! AND THEN THEY MADE OUT!!!
I think that the anthropomorphic interpretation of Sheol is for sure one of those scholarly debate topics. The texts just repeatedly describe Sheol in human terms. Job describes Sheol as being naked before God. I mean, I guess a place can be naked. The texts also include references to parts of Sheol’s body - mouth, hands, throat, womb (!!!!!!), appetite. Sheol is also said to not praise Yahweh, to wrestle with Elohim, and to make deals with men for their souls.
Maybe it is a case of overly-poetic language. :D It’s like Old Testament Conspiracy Files and I LOVE IT.
My Pal Satan.
from this post from last night.
DID YOU KNOW when the Hebrew scriptures were translated into Greek the scholars replaced most of the references to Sheol with “Hades.” It makes sense, I guess! Greek, Hades. I get it. Similar creatures with similar roles. SURE WHY NOT? Make it easier for the Greeks to get it, I guess.
But then the Christian Bible replaced “Hades” (get out of here, Pagans!) with “Hell” and then further cleaned it up to “death”, “the grave”, and other such words and Sheol pretty much got totally written out! See you later anthropomorphic underworld beast! No more eating all the souls in Jerusalem for you!
