One of the first shots ('shots' sound more cinematic than 'pics') I'm going to put in my WEAPON Combat League light novel/novella/illustrated fiction project. Actually dug this up from a sketch I did ages ago and decided to refine.

WEAPON Combat League Illustrated Fiction test by Dualmask
WEAPON Combat League Illustrated Fiction test
I realized that I'm probably not going to make a WEAPON Combat League comic. I just...don't believe I'm going to be able to tell the whole story in comic form. Drawing comics is not really something I am able to stay motivated with, and the story is just too long.

That being said, I am dying to tell this story and one idea that was given to me was to try an illustrated prose approach, combining drawings with the words I already wrote. So I decided to try teaching myself the basics of using Adobe InDesign. Although this image shows placeholder text, I'm working on combining the prose from the WCL Prose Novel with images I'd planned on putting in the webcomic or graphic novel to make a different kind of book, one that suits my style of storytelling. I'm verbose like a novelist but I love to draw too, and I don't really want to waste all the writing I've done. So this is something I'm going to try.

The next step will be to turn the rough thumbnails into finished drawings, and perhaps work on some other graphic design elements for the overall book, as well as some kind of header/footer with the WCL logo and insignia prominently displayed. I'm thinking maybe a gradient in the background (soft and subtle) between the team colors that are the focal point of the chapter against white text, but that's just a thought. The file I created presently stands at 12 pages but I can certainly alter that by changing the size of the font as well as the placement of the images. I'll definitely play around with it.

Opinions? Thoughts?
