Here is a small glimpse at a short comic I’ve been working on: The Moon is Within Me. Something I’ve wanted to explore more in comics is the use of ambient panels to add mood and atmosphere to the scene. One page obviously is a full splash but in the other the center panel of the woodsman and the bottom one of the little girl are the only two needed to convey the story. The others were added to flesh out the forest itself and give a closer look at some details that might otherwise be lost at a glance. Then to add to the menace of the woodsman himself all the panels around him I shaped as fangs looming over the girl with her floating in darkness beneath.
