VIS­UAL GRAM­MAR

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Many sym­bols are used in comics to en­hance the viewer’s un­der­stand­ing of what the char­ac­ters are feel­ing, like punc­tu­a­tion marks for pic­tures. Per­haps a love heart to show ro­man­tic in­ten­tions, or a light bulb when some­one has a bright idea. Manga has some unique ex­am­ples: a sweat­drop for ner­vous­ness or em­bar­rass­ment, a hash mark for raised veins on the forehead when some­one is an­gry, and lit­tle spirit wisps gath­er­ing when some­one is feel­ing de­pressed.
