Comics Techniques and Tricks: JH Williams III

Welcome to another edition of Comics Techniques and Tricks, in which we showcase techniques that only comics can do! Click here for the archive!

Today, we're going to link to another website, since it has a deeper analysis of the piece than I can give you. Scott M. McDaniel (no relation to Scott McDaniel of DC Comics) does a sweet analysis of a page from Promethea #24, painted by JH Williams III.

Click here to see the analysis, including pointing out that the page is laid out in a Yin/Yang shape, the use of contrasts to balance the composition, the flow of the captions, and, of personal interest to me, the use of the Golden Section/Golden Ratio. Go over there now!

Thanks for pointing out these analyses and doing your own. Really great to see how comics offers unique opportunities for artistic expression.

Yeah, this one was really in-depth. Not something that jumped right out at me. I love doing these articles; they're probably my favorite part of the Cube!
