Children of the Gods

 Back in college, one of the classes I took was a sequential art class which was basically all about creating comics. I learned quite a bit about storytelling both visually and in a literary way. This five page comic was my final for that class and it was a story that was rolling around in my head for a while, even before I took the class. The comic is inspired by the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and it is a pilot for something I might do in a larger scale down the road as either an online comic or as a graphic novel. When working on this comic I was unaware that we were allowed to go past five pages, which is why it is a little crowded, but in a way this was also good because it forced me to be creative in planning out the paneling for the story; to do more with less is a great way to push one's skills.

On a side note, if I do continue on with this idea then I might change the title to Liberis Deorum.
