The hardest thing about this page was the sound effect in the second panel. What I’m trying to portray is a swift sharp inhale, the kind one would do when experiencing a sudden or suddenly intensifying pain. Think poking a bruise.
I wrestled with using “s”s, “f”s and “h”s in varying combinations. Ultimately this is what I decided on.
Coming up with SFX… this is something I totally never considered when I first decided to make a webcomic (or online graphic novel if I’m feeling fancy). It seems so obvious now of course, but in the beginning stages it never even crossed my mind.
It’s kinda funny if you think about it.
Now, I get to make up my own words… there’s more power in this than I originally thought.
