This afternoon I was amazed to see how the grapic novel writer Andreas managed to put a “fade in” into new scene into his graphic novel Rork.
Just take a look at the image below. You’ll see a black rectangle in the boxes. At first the rectangle is completely black but in the next boxes the black rectangle gets bigger, there’s something appearing in the box. The last box (down right corner) makes the switch to the next scene complete.
Isn’t this amazing how he came up with this way of drawing?
To help you understand this page a bit: while the protagonist Rork is talking to a giant ghost, another personage in the story is held captive by the villain in a dark cave. We are switching scenes on this page and we see the villain appearing.
