OuBaPo Experiment: Waves of Fear II

In my latest Jinty OuBaPo experiment, I have taken an entire episode – in this case the penultimate episode of Waves of Fear – and completely redrawn it using stock photographs and the cute cats from my computer cartoon kit. So Clare & Co have all been turned into cute cats, which also enables the episode to be rendered in a more cartoony fashion. The text stays the same, though in some cases I have added some touches of my own, such as changing some of the punctuation for dramatic purposes. I also took the opportunity to lay it into the spiteful Jean a whole lot more, whom I feel was not punished as much as she should have been in the original story. The original episode follows my Photoshop reworking of it.

  1. You have turned the confrontation of Jean into a literal cat fight 🙂

    I enjoyed this: it’s good to see that the story still works when ‘cutiefied’ or indeed catified – it shows something of the robustness of the underlying story. It’s hard to read some of the word balloons though, and I can’t click through to enlarge the cat pages. Can you reload them larger, at all?

    1. I can’t get them larger. But I have redone some of the speech balloons, and they look easier to read now.

      Glad you like my redoing of the confrontation with Jean. I opted to make Jean a yellow cat as my dig at all those accusations of cowardice and bullying that were levelled at Clare.

  2. I wonder how an old Jinty story would look if it was turned into a photostory? I don’t have any models for it though. “No Medals for Marie” might work as a photostory. Others could be “The Ghost Dancer”, “Wanda Whiter Than White”, and “Ping Pong Paula”.

    1. It’s quite hard and time-consuming to do a photo story, and there are more constraints than with artwork I think (for instance it’s harder to do an SF or fantasy story convincingly I think, unless you have got good costumes or props, or indeed the ability to do good special effects). The stories you mention are pretty realistic and I think that would be a sensible choice, but even then it’d be jolly hard.

      1. Yes, a lot of Jinty stories such as “Waves of Fear” or “The Jinx from St Jonah’s” would not translate into photo stories.
