7/11/19 Julien Wilks · -WRTG400-B Graphic Novel “Batman Year One”
The photos that I chose to focus on are the graphic novel from DC comics “Batman Year One” and I choose this because this comic is different from the other Batman comics because it shows how Bruce Wayne became the Batman and also showed how he wasn’t the best at doing being Batman in fact it showed his mistakes along the way. The reason why I want to focus on this because my teacher Drew showed to the class as an example for beginning our comics, and the idea was your characters have to start from point one and not the finish product. The idea was that you never can create the perfect character from the beginning and your character is going to go through a lot of changes until it gets to the final version and flushed out character background. I like this comic because it helped me personally a lot with not just with making a comic and making my own original character that I had a lot of trouble before but also with improving my artwork in general. This book taught me something very simple but very game changing for me and it was that you’re not going to create the perfect piece at first and its okay to make mistakes so that way you become better over time until you get the final version that you want. I felt inspired by this because not only I learned this from a comic and my teacher but it really help me with my work and I actually saw the results of progress by going back t the first art projects I did for MIAD and revamped them into better versions of them. I want t do the same thing when it comes to comics because it inspired me to become an artist to a graphic designer and making comics as a hobby and I want my comics to encourage the public just like how it encourage me to become an artist. This graphic novel for any comic book artist who is starting with making comics and for artists as well who have trouble with improving their craft like myself.
