My idea for a group project is to do a collaborative comic book about two wizards fighting over a magic wand. As they attempt to grab the wand from each other, they keep magically changing each other and the world around them. My idea was to have a different person draw each page - so, in other words, whenever one of the wizards casts a spell, the world of the comic book suddenly changes into another artist's style.
I'd like to sketch out, in general, what happens in the comic book, so I think I should be the director of the project. I'm open to whoever would like to be Art Director and Head of Editorial. I thought this seemed like a good idea for a group project because people could focus on their own section of the project and incorporate their personal style into it, and yet it would still have an overall cohesive flow.
I would probably sketch out what's supposed to happen on each page rather simply, and then the other people in the group can draw the page in their own way. And they don't even have to be drawings - if you're a photography major, the wizards could become real people in wizard outfits on one of the pages. It all depends on what each person in the group would like to focus on. My initial sketches might look something like this:
Of course, before I sketch out the actual story that would be used in the final version, I would want to talk to the other people in my group to find out what kind of artistic style they have so I could incorporate that into the comic book. Here's my Organizational Chart (we can have as many comic book artists as we need):
And I also made out a timeline, although in a project like this, people will be working on their own sections of the project so it isn't easy to pin down what will happen when. Just so long as everybody gets their part done before the project is due.
