Illustrated Journal #32

I will be doing the comic on the origin story in Christianity. It is found in the Book of Genesis.

The comic will be done in a way that mimics stained glass. It was at its peak during the Middle Ages when Christianity ruled Europe. Stained Glass was used to illustrate stories out of the Bible to educate the uneducated masses. I could use this way to tell the origin of the universe in Christianity.

Some Examples of Stained Glass Below:

What captured my eye were the colors and the geometry. The images iare broken up into tons of shapes, either geometric or organic. The colors are so rich. They mix warm and cold colors together.

Below are some drawings I have done on what I would do with stained glass imagery in the upcoming project.

Scan 5

These are some examples of what I will do with the final piece. They will be in black and white, inked and scanned into the computer.  Like what I came across in the stained glass windows, I drew some landscapes and divided them up with shapes.
