Copper - "Metropolitan"

Post by Kazu » Mon Mar 06, 2006 3:35 am

Creating this one was an ordeal. I had to walk away from my desk and my
computer out of frustration while working on it, but I eventually just sat down
with some potato snacks and my iPod to crank through it. Not so happy with
this one, but I'll just take it into account when I do the next one.

Kazu - a lot of your 'Copper' comics have been thoughtful and insightful, but this one really hit home for me. I know a lot of people that just can't be happy where they are, especially some people close to me. Thanks for this one (-:

Yea, sam here.
I love it, and the color palette is really calming.
Great JOB!

I'd bet it was the backgrounds, they look pretty complex and tricky.
It follows the continuity of the third Ziganokum movie. It stars Shrub Mikanore as Ziganokum and Bizzorum. With Johothin Griggor as Nebulox.

I just think the writing is particularly weak in this installment. The conflict is too overt and Fred just comes off sounding totally whiny. This problem I had with the writing really played into my production time, since I felt really hesitant to continue, but I had drawn all the panels already while making the realization and it was too difficult to rewrite the dialogue around the images. So, to me, the art and the story don't match up that well, as the motivations changed so much in the creation of the comic. It left me with a bad feeling, and I'm probably overthinking it. Just have to move on...

Thanks for the comments, though, everyone!

Yeah, I get some pretty twisted attitudes when I'm hungry, too.

This comic definitely hit close to home since I moved a lot as a kid. Normally I found something about where we were living that made the move easier (often times the food). I'd have to say that my favorite panel compositionally is the one with the trees.

I think this has got to be one of your best color palettes. It's amazing and the story is fine man. NO worries.

for me, this said a lot about trying something out before you made any judgements...

i used to do this a lot when i was little haha. made judgements about something i haven't even tried yet, only to find that i liked it.

omg! i love the colors that you used. and i dig the background. a lot. even if the doggy doesn't like it (i dunno his name, sorry!)

great job on it XD

I like how you really simply convey depth, motion, and atmosphere. It's true that this one relies more on the words than on the imagery to carry across its point, but none of it feels "off" for me. And I had almost an identical conversation with my sister regarding Urban Outfitters. :D
