Why make it look like that?



Being a fan of 'Film Noir' and the old Serials, 'Flash Gordon',
'King of the Rocket Men' etc. I tried to make the Graphic style
of the story evoke the feel of those old Black and White Movies.
The page layout therefore derives from 'widescreen' images.

Finished greyscale art of limited tones was also manipulated
to soften, to suggest film grain and 'vignetting'.


All the art was produce from scratch at 500dpi in Photoshop
with a Wacom Intuos tablet and an underpowered old Mac.
Reference consisted primarily of 'Google Images' and a trusty
plastic dinosaur. :-)

Thanks a bunch, much appreciated

I was pretty bloody surprised to get a link from
one of my favourite writers!!

Since we (E-Ville Press) have been prepping for Con
we don't have an 'online sales thing' on the go yet
but I'm sure we'll set something up afterwards

cheers
