i guess i recorded an ice bucket challenge today after i got my wisdom teeth out ??
Holy fuxki shit
One thing I don’t undertand in comics is characters talking with their mouths closed. You see it all the time in mainstream books. I’m certain there’s a point when I was drawing comics that I flipped from not even thinking about the closed mouth talkers (my early stuff is full of them) to really hating them. It completely punctures the reality of a panel for me if someone’s talking with their mouth closed.
This drives me crazy! A speech bubble floating above a character’s head, and he or she has their mouth shut. Don’t do this! It loses the immediacy of the dialog when the mouth isn’t open.
I’ve been drawing my characters with their mouths open when they talk because it’s what everyone wants
I like it better when characters have their mouths closed????
You’re either looking at the picture after you read the dialogue (because you’re normal) or before you read the dialogue (because you’re secretly not a comic reader) so it’s a fair assumption that the image depicts the moment after the character stops speaking.
