Laying out Lame Swans

Been working away on my comic book Lame Swans. It's due on Friday, so I'm a little behind where I'd like to be, but it's coming along. I'm still in the stage of laying out all the pages, framing each raw shot to fit the panel size I've established. I've learned a lot about the way to do this as I go. I discovered that it's best to leave as much space around each image I want to capture, even if it's meant to be a close shot. That allows me to have the maximum amount of buffer zone for when it comes to cutting it down to proper panel size. I got better and better over the course of the four photoshoots.

Due to how little time I have left, I doubt I will be able to properly edit the images in time to submit the book to my teacher. I will just have to lay it out and put in the dialogue bubbles so that it is technically complete. But before I put it out there for public consumption, I'm going to want to go over the images in a Photoshop to tweak the colors and effects. Unfortunately I don't know if I can both acquire the right program AND learn how to make it do what I want in time for Friday.

Still, I think I'll give a little glimpse of where I am right now. Here is the layout of page sixteen. It doesn't have words on it yet, but I hope you find the images intriguing.

I like the red girl's shirt.

are there going to be thought bubbles or word bubbles? If there are word bubbles it does seem a little odd that no one's mouth is open.

InDesign is the best for adding word bubbles etc.
