Copper - "Blue"

Post by Kazu » Sat Dec 13, 2003 8:25 am

December's Copper. Had a hard time finding a computer to color this with, since mine was busy rendering 3D sports figures... Welp, got it done, anyway. Enjoy!

Fantastic work, as usual. The fourth panel is spot on perfect for me.

Gosh it's hard to believe that you made this in sunny Pasadena. I could feel the temperature in every panel, and I appreciated the silent quality even more. I really can't wait until you produce a long Copper book...

Great stuff as always Kazu.
It's funny how silent comics create an entirely unique 'sound'. I think purely because your given no information other than visual...your brain over compensates and you start creating subconciously your own sounds. I find them quite vivid. But obviously at the same time...they're not there at all.
Quite odd.

I love....LOVE the little finger of light from the tent shack in panel 5.

And i don't know wether you meant it? But i get a really heartfelt subtext from this peice. It's christmas...let the lost and the homeless come in from the cold and share a meal, share your time. Then thinking on that subtext the interior panels become just that more warmer.
Beautiful.

my thoughts exactly

the silence emphasizes thier friendship and makes the inside of the tent that much warmer, a beautiful contrast with the desolate snowbound junkyard, which had me shivering. awesome work, as always.

Thanks fellas! When I was writing this month's comic, I had sketched out several stories featuring some funny jokes (and even drew up a comic about snowboarding), but decided to do a simple mood piece instead. Glad I was able to get the right feeling across.

:D

This is such a sweet comic. Like the others said, the colors do make it cold... I also love the facial expressions. very endearing.

I think this is my favorite to date. Is this how they first met? I took it as this is where they live...I don't know. All I know of Copper is from the strips on the site so please forgive me if I'm wrong. Mood, emotion (both in lighting and expression), and spirit all comes out effectively without a single word being said. Just goes to show you don't need to live in expensive mansions or have expensive cars to have a warm loving home.
