man, you don’t know me

do you ever feel like a critic but when the situation is happening to you, it’s ok?  i wonder why that is.  the human mind has such a capacity to generate excuses and justify circumstances, in order to keep the ego happy.  if we do it too much and too often, it becomes arrogant and not in touch with reality.  if we do it too little and not frequently, then we come off as sad and pathetic.  so, what’s my point?  the point is, before we go off judging someone and their actions, realize we don’t have the full story and imagine how we’d react in that situation.  it may still not justify their action, but at least we’ll understand more.

i like how the shots are staggered from frame to frame.  the intention here was to simulate that Owen has had one too many drinks and thus, it’s hard to focus in on the entire situation.  and if you’re noticing, facial expressions are starting to become a bigger deal in this comic strip.  who knew facial expressions could be so much fun?  ;P

  1. Yeah the drunk effect really comes across nicely in the last frame! Although missing half his face also made it harder to pick up on his 180 degree change of attitude in the last frame. So, I’m having a hard time voting- which is more frequent- “vary rarely” or “seldom ever”?

  2. I actually like how the last frame cuts off half his face. It gives the apperance that he is walking out of the frame.

  3. i intended “very rarely” to be more frequent. i guess the definition of those choices are in the eye of the beholder!

    and thanks for the comments on the frame/angle shots. i’ll cut off my character’s faces more often!
