Making Comics - Blue Pills - Aileen Thomas

This week in Making Comics there was a lot of discussion on emotions and how to portray them. With the use of body language, facial cues, dialogue and symbolism you can communicate to the reader what the character is feeling.

In blue pills a lot of the emotion was helped by symbolism and juxtoposition. For these two panels they were neither on a raft nor in a hairy darkness, but this was how the artist depicted their feelings. One doesn't have to read what is going on to get the gist that in one they are happy and carefree and in the other she is feeling surrounded and frightened.
