Transcript of Light and Shading in Maus

Comparison to other comics... Transitions Atmosphere Light and Shading in Maus Fading into the next scene... Foreshadowing "something's not right..." Questions 1. How does light and shading affect the tone of the story being told?

2. How does the shading help transitions in the story?

3. How does the lighting affect what we infer and predict from the story?

4. How do you think this applies to other visual stories and mediums? Conclusion The effect of light and shading connection to the past grey shading create a smooth transition disconnect from the present /image of the storyteller Contrast: hope, blending: hopelessness
Clean shading (straight lines): creates a brighter, lighter atmosphere. Messy Shading (short, criss-crossed lines): creates feeling of chaos and darkness Atmosphere contributes, with other factors, to suggest a certain type of future shading is also used to suggest a hidden intent or reveal a certain emotion Nazi presence will cause unexpected change of their livelihood Black figure: shows hidden emotion/intent
Lucia will do something, possibly menacing Anja might not be as happy as others, hiding something Forshadowing black background Scene Changes black figures (end of chapter) Again, black figures for transition
(this time into the past) Transitions? similar shading 1. shading matches for a smooth transition into the next scene

2. use of solid black and white blocks to disconnect from the present and the image of the storyteller lights dark background black figures dark, menacing background black, hopeless figures oblivious boy shadows, turned back,
danger black figures:
inside secrets? dark interior, black figure, horrified dark, figures all around,
crowded, tense overall very grey,
dreary stark contrast
harsh nature and atmosphere black background Very dark shading of figures white ropes Ropes > mice ? Atmosphere? 1. Contrast: hope, blending: hopelessness

2. Clean shading (straight lines): creates a brighter, lighter atmosphere. Messy Shading (short, criss-crossed lines): creates feeling of chaos and darkness White figures Darker Shading - staring at the nazi flag
- suddenly darker shading
- going to sanitarium (quality of life)
- suicidal (survival) Black figure - slouched figure
- desperate tone dark shading for a portrait - portraits are usually brighter (see person better)
