Hey Holly, I'm planning to start a comic cause my procrastinating ass has been saying so for 2 years and I just decided to start. When it comes to having environments in your comic, how do you go about presenting them. Cause I've seen comics where the whole place isn't revealed just bits and pieces.
you dont need to go crazy with environments, just the basic “establishing shot” then you literally have your characters in a blank void for 99.9 percent of it.
For purgatory I did the world building gradually. Showing the church, simons house, then the cathedral, the school then Damian’s house.
You dont need to show every location all at once, and you dont need a tolken ass map for people to get whats going on.
most establishing shots dont even necessarily have to have the most detail focusing on the full room, rather objects that people will interact with like this
with that being said eventually you might want to throw in a large establishing shot. Large establishing shots are like “one per book” type deals so it seems like the scope of their universe isn’t just 3-5 locations but a world.
