One thing I don’t undertand in comics is characters talking with their mouths closed. You see it all the time in mainstream books. I’m certain there’s a point when I was drawing comics that I flipped from not even thinking about the closed mouth talkers (my early stuff is full of them) to really hating them. It completely punctures the reality of a panel for me if someone’s talking with their mouth closed.
truth. i always try to make my mouth shapes logical.
My odd art choice i mainstream comics is people talking as they’re kissing. That’s just rude, in my experience, and it ends up all mumbly.
I never got it either, I can’t remember if I’ve ever drawn people talking with their mouths closed, but what gets me with anime/manga is when a face is in profile and the mouth is moving/open but the lips are still closed.
