I'll admit, I'm a little confused as to what is happening here. I get that Mark pulls the rope from behind his back & the grappling hook is pretty cool, but did he tie the rope around the book? And did the book disappear 2 pages later when they're falling out the window?
@Stella: Sorry for the confusion... Thank you for letting me know.
The intended order and actions:
- Pulls out rope
- Ties one end of rope to book, sets on floor (I didn't make this one clear)
- Ties other end of rope to hook, attaches to window
- (page 12) Attaches friction-slides to middle of rope, so they can jump out the window without going splat
- (page 13) Jump out window (note that the rope goes out the window, and then loops back up currently... Where's the other end?
And... No, the book didn't "disappear" in any sense of the word, it is currently sitting on the floor propped up with (invisible) rope, as of jumping out the window. The fate of the book will be made very clear on the next page (page 14 as of this writing).
I hope this makes things clearer? I'm honestly surprised I haven't had to explain more, at this point, considering my drawing "skills". I do think they've gotten somewhat better from when I started, but still need tons of work.
@AlmostAware: thanks for the clarification. I also missed that the rope loops back up when they're falling outside the building. Honestly, your drawings themselves aren't too terrible, & I really like how you're using the split-screens to show how they're there but not-there, your main problem here was just what exactly you're drawing to portray the action, & that's a tricky thing to begin with. :)
