My Name is Shanna May, I am currently a student in my final year at Rochester Institute of Technology.
I’ve created this blog to be a documentation of the pitfalls and successes of the thesis project I will be working on for (more or less) twenty weeks.
This project will use a combination of 3D and 2D elements to create a final printed comic. Though the comic I plan to make will only cover the first issue of a series – and therefore will in itself not be a finished work or I should say a finished story, it will require me to not only work out kinks in dialogue, story structure, and layout it will also require a lot of work on the aesthetic. I will have to focus on creating a cohesive style and interesting characters for a series of panels or frames, I will also have to focus on the larger issue of presenting those panels in a manner that will be cohesive and comprehensive to my prospective readers. And finally I will have to consider the cost and quality of the images in relation to print. I believe that all of these factors make up a worthwhile project for me to pursue.
So now that I’ve explained the purpose of the project I can move on the fun stuff like the story for my next post!
