Panzera 3 by The-Mirrorball-Man Panzera 3 by The-Mirrorball-Man
Page 3 in a 12-page comic story.

When I decided to make a black and white comic, I knew I wanted to use some grey too, but I didn't want to use it in the traditional way: for highlights and shadows. I decided to use it purely for contrast. More often than not, I used it for emotional contrast rather than anything realistic. We'll see more examples of this, but Panzera's eyes in panel #3 are an illustration of what I mean.

And people who used to read the "My Life in Flux" comic strip may notice that some things are not where they should be...

PANZERA: Alors? Tu vas me donner une cigarette ou pas?

ROCCO: Voilà.

ROCCO: Haha! C'est ta première fois?

Quand j'ai décidé de faire une bédé en noir et blanc, je savais que je souhaitais également utiliser du gris, mais pas de la manière traditionnelle, pour les ombres et la lumière. J'ai décidé de m'en servir uniquement pour le contraste. Bien souvent, il s'est agi de contraste émotionnel plutôt que quoi que ce soit de réaliste. Nous verrons d'autres exemples, mais les yeux de Panzera dans la case 3 sont une illustration de ce que je veux dire.

Et les gens qui lisaient mon comic strip "My Life in Flux" pourraient remarquer ici que certaines choses ne sont pas là où elles devraient être...

It's funny, I've never thought about it as "a book" before, which is why I chose a format that fits a computer screen rather than a more traditional comic format.

groovy. I really think it's great book material and even the format works. Books come in all shapes nowadays

I apologise for not commenting lately, as I've been busy. But this series is interesting. The ambience is really nice and I love the storyline so far. It's really nice and I'm waiting for the next ones!

There's no need to apologize. Commenting is not mandatory ;) Thank you for your kind words.

I like the jagged outline in the coughing panel. And I must say that Panzera is incredibly cute in all panels. Almost makes me forget she's all dangerous.

She's younger here, so she hasn't fully blossomed into her lethal self.
