putting together the pepper strip timelapse


what’s great about this timelapse is it shows how nothing came easy on this one

and when i saw little guy trying to grind pepper with the pepper shaker at the restaurant i thought i had it made

but then i realized i needed to show all of the other times he saw me using a pepper grinder

and none of the drawings came easy

the staging of that last panel was especially difficult. and the drawing was pretty bad. I’m not even sure it is clear what is going on.

even the colors of the strip were dificult. i worried that there would be too many colors in the last panel so i decided to go monotone throughout.

i decided on yellow just because i thought it would be funny to color in the yolks in panel 3.

my first attempt at yellow looked like pee. so i made it bolder.

i’m not sure i agree with that decision.

ultimately i still think the idea was good, but the execution lacked on almost every level.

i think ive mentioned before i have no idea what im doing

time lapse of drill strip

See the final strip here

first time i’ve used sound effects. (nope i’ve used them here and here.)

you can really see me struggle with how the effects should appear in the frame.

the first idea was that the letters would spiral around as if spun by the drill.

i still think it is a good idea, but the execution just wasn’t there so i had to simplify.

the strip is still successful, but when i look at it, it is not as visually interesting as it could have been.
