Walking is Tough

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Believe it or not, this was a really hard gag to draw. I think it turned out all right but it could have been better. The rough thing about this page was that I had to fit the missing Army Man into the left side of each panel and make it look like he was walking away from the viewer and toward Zip and do it in almost six consecutive panels. It was tough drawing a figure walking away like that because his arms and legs don’t really change their position much from panel to panel, and I felt like it was really important for it to be apparent that he was walking toward Zip and the perspective of the drawing was why his size appears to change, as opposed to that he shrunk or something. Like I said, I think it turned out okay, but let me know what you think.
