TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL1 PART 2
Aaand the second part for Trimax Vol1!
Oh yeah we’re starting with a beautiful page right away. Look I don’t know how he does it but Nightow has sooo many pages throughout the manga that alone could be amazing prints in itself that really show just how good an artist he is. It looks like a relatively simple page, but even with such simple things as some clouds, the earth and the falling rockets, you have to consider how to arrange it. Look at that beautiful distribution of black space, the clouds kinda splitting the image in half, but the earth is a bit below, so like ¼ of the whole page. And the middle rocket being just a bit closer to the right one, so the distance between these is not so even and boring.
Knives really doesn’t get it, why Vash is angry, does he…It’s crazy that he is so much up in his head that he cannot understand why the killing of so many people including Rem could make Vash upset.
Also uuuh you don’t kick your brother like that. Man, Vash really lost everything on that day, even the one person that survived and which he thought was his family, the only person that could have understood him.
The beginning of the nickname™ ! Vash questions it one time and then he just got used to it 😀
Nightow likes to tilt the angles in his panels really really often! I don’t think that it’s always a deliberate choice to make a specific scene more dynamic but that it’s just reflex when he makes the storyboard, adding a little tilt here and there. Hehe noting this for myself, too. I used to be pretty wild with my panel shapes and the contents because I read and drew lots of Manga. In class I got the feedback to tone that down a bit, and rather make the content be dynamic instead of the panel shapes, which is why now I’m being very non-exaggerative Now, seeing this, I think I want to consider being just a bit more loose with panels and angles and stuff. You want to keep the real flashy stuff for the most action-based scenes but adding a little spice here and there could be nice! (Though I guess that also depends on the kind of comic you’re making)
My non-attentive ass just noticed now that there are different kinds of sand steamer. That’s actually pretty cool!
I like that sometimes we don’t see the mouth and full expression of the characters, like here with Vash. It just adds to his expression and his inner feelings, which we can only speculate about.
OOOOH noo you’re not a monster D: D: He looks so..devastated. All he wants is to be friends with humans, to live a nice life, and then people view him as a monster and it visibly hurts him and the worst part is, he’s probably thinking the same thing, agreeing with them.
Finally I get what the deal with this guy is here! It always slipped past me that he’s being used.
Oh and this page here, huh. We can really sympthasize with the dad here, like yeah I can definitely get that motivation. There are SO many heavy themes in this manga, so many conflicts, and SO convincingly portrayed…oof.
This concludes my reread of Trimax1!
