I turned my Reversal Shot assignment from Layout into a two paneled comic strip. Sad story below ⚠️⚠️⚠️
Scenario: Eric, furious, grabs onto the bully’s shirt, eyeing him down with rage. “I’m NOT a ‘fag’ Chad! I don’t swing up on gay bastards left and right as I please. And I’ll have you know—“ “EXCUSE YOU?!” Everyone flinches and snaps their heads at the sound. Eric’s eyes widen at the sight of Jacob. His face had started to glow a red tint, his brows furrowed, teeth gnashed.
The bully pushes himself away from Eric’s reach (he didn’t even notice). “J-Jacob..” Eric stutters, desperately approaching him. “I-I..let me..I can explain.” Without warning, Jacob clenches onto Eric’s shirt collar and pulls him in aggressively! THWAK!! Eric plummets to the ground, a stinging red mark on the side of his face. Jacob bends down and grabs him by the shirt, hoisting him up and BAM! throwing him onto the lockers. Jacob’s eyes are glossy now, the corners growing a pink hue. “You listen here Ramirez,” he whispers, inches from Eric’s face, ready to shred him to bloody pieces. “this ‘gay bastard’...doesn’t wanna see your face anymore...understood?” Eric’s heart sinks drastically, his face has gone pale. “J-Jacob..” he mutters. “I—“ BAM! Eric is slammed against the locker again. “UNDERSTOOD!!??” Jacob bellows out, interrupting him. Tears forming at the rim of his lower eye lids. Eric nods his head rapidly, afraid to do anything else. “Jacob that’s enough” “Hey man cut it out” the other students try to calmly break the fight. Jacob releases his grip and backs up a step, Eric hunched over trying to catch his breath.
Jacob marches towards the exit of the locker room, away from the small crowd. A single hidden tear sheds down his red cheek.
Eric stands up again, desperately looking out at Jacob. “Jacob...” he mutters, his left hand hovering above his bruised face. “...I’m sorry...”
