As the subject of my thesis I chose creating a comic book of a fictitious story of my own. To emphasize the complex nature of the task, apart from writing the plot and drawing the comics I also had to design the publication and the publishing company. Comics as a format could not be more actual: it is being treated ever so often as a brand, and is being used as basis for films and marketing campaigns of enormous budgets.
Achilles, the fighter appearing in Greek mythology, is full of doubts, internal struggles and ambivalent feelings in my interpretation therefore he cannot be considered a black-and-white character. The most important elements for me were shapes and the light-shade effect, these define both the scenes and the characters. Due to the visual nature of the genre realistic representation is more difficult on a conceptual level. It is the atmosphere that defines the mood; the granular, airbrush effect intends to resolve the borders between extremes, helps blurring the contours which is a tool to entrust the recipient with the interpretation.
