Happy Wednesday. Here’s some Roots to get you humping on hump day:
The last panel confused me for a bit. Isabel, offended, tore out of her office, cut the lights, slammed the door, and left Sir Walter in the dark without a word, yes?
I think this would have been much more effective if you’d mirror-flipped the last panel. We assume the door to the room is on the left (the direction from which Walter approaches) and not the right (the wall behind her desk, which we can see most of).
That would give the impression that Isabel blew past Sir Walter, his head spinning around to follow her movement, then hit the lights and slammed the door.
As it is, the first impression is that the Click and Slam noises are coming from the area of Isabel’s desk. It’s almost never a good idea to flip camera orientation of two characters one panel to the next without a strong reason to do so, and ESPECIALLY not a good idea for close-up headshots where there are no orientating features to show the audience the camera HAS moved.
