I’ve mentioned before I prefer to approach comic strips more like a comic book, in that I try to keep shots from looking like they’re happening on a stage in front of the audience. I like moving the camera into the environment, which is something Bill Watterson did so well in Calvin & Hobbes.

The problem?  When you get model sheets for characters, they rarely have a reverse angle sample to follow. That was challenge with Tricky in this week’s Beano. I mean, does he have a cowlick? A bald spot? Who knows?
