    Have you experimented with turpentine color washes? They're the traditional art equivalent of a gradient tool :bzz:, and they can be great for atmospheric color. I do mine using Gamsol, but I don't think brand matters.

    @gavindel I haven't! I'm still basically a baby when it comes to oil painting. I've done maybe 10 little paintings on 5x8 canvas boards. I'm hoping I get more time to paint during this coming summer!

    did you use that grid system for that dog photo? or just eyeballed it? or any other crazy technique i dont know about

    I just eyeballed it. Not the most efficient method, I'm sure, but it gets me there eventually.

    Hey guys, been a bit. This week (and the rest of the month, really) I've been doing a comic project where me and another old comic making friend try to make 10 comics a day. Aside from some a bit too late nights for my fulltime job schedule, it's been really quite fun to do. After not creating any comics for years, or maybe one or two a year, to suddenly poop out FIFTY is kind of a relief. My journal comic, which was my most substantial project before this, didn't hit 50 pages for almost 2 years. By the end of the month, we will both have produced 300 comics, 600 between us. The first 100 are up live right now and, since they're all being created basically in sequence, with almost no planning or discussion beforehand, the storyline takes some weird jumps, as I scramble to patch plot holes, or imagine new situations for now-established characters to find themselves in. For a project that's only 6 days old, to have kind of a weird canon already is pretty fun.

    If you're interested, check out 600and2.com to read from the beginning. There are fun authors notes and alt-text for each! The first ten pages are his, the next 10 are mine, etc. etc.

    Here are some that work standalone, but the vast majority of it requires... some context to really get. I AM looking for critique if you have any to offer, writing and art (on my comics) are both mine so everything is fair game.

    Some more no context needed comics that I've mined from this creativity vein this month.

    MORE BEE COMICS:

    They happened to end up providing some context for these other comics that also kind of stand alone. Most everything else I'm making during this project is storyline based, and while funny, definitely require the absorption of the whole project. I'm kind of considering the below as a rough draft or like, backdoor pilot for maybe a childrens book or comic on bees.

    I mean it's a good thing Jon learned how to ride a dragon for the coming battle I guess but at the time it seemed needlessly reckless:

    They sure seem to be rushing through the payoff for a lot of set up throughout the series. This is me thinking 'what if they threw a bunch of weddings before the end, for all those GOT love fans out there:'

    @LegacyGame Thank you! I've posted a few of these around and they've gotten some good feedback, though I find that most anything posted on reddit is ignored unless it's posted at a certain time of day (when the people who browse 'new' decide what will be looked at for the day).

    Here are a few more 'developed' panels from the last two nights. Post-apocalypse comics:

    The western comics and the Post-apocalypse panels are really strong. Love the direction those are going in.

    The painted sketches are fun too. I wouldn't be afraid to use that as a base for painting on top of, if you think it suits your process. That is how most of my paintings start and then I render over them.

    In my thread you are talking about compositions, but I think your sense of composition is pretty strong! Its clear you are considering during the process on some level, I wouldn't get down on yourself about it.

    You have nice work that has a lot of character and energy. You have a loose, sort of delicate quality to your lines, and I would be curious if you could get some sort of sharpness that carried through to your colors, so that you aren't loosing details and hard edges to your colors. It might require more time investment than you currently can allot for a painting, but I would think about it!

  • acadiaacadia Registered User regular
    Thank you for the kind words! I consider composition in so much as I am aware of certain rules, though I am not diligent in applying them.

    Damn tho, looking good. I sorta like the fuzzy photo effect but I would continue pushing for the practice. Good likeness on these, which is no small feat of measurement.

    @Iruka Haha actually it was a pretty major feat of the liquify tool. Mac is the only one for whom I did any preliminary under sketch to place the features, and wouldn't you know it he's the best likeness imo.

    i cant tell if half of this stuff is traditional or not, like the charcoal stuff has to be digital cause theres no smudges in sight, and we know thats impossible with irl charcoal. dumb ass burnt wood, getta here charcoal

  • acadiaacadia Registered User regular
    @earthwormadam thanks man! and thanks!

    @SeveredHead The only things not digital on this page are in the first three posts. The lines for the colored Star Wars illustrations were originally pencil sketch, but many of them were altered during the digital coloring process. All the comics are digital. I paid 8 bucks to download a set of Kyle's Brushes a few years back, and they do a great job mimicking traditional media in a way that I found very easy to work with. Way easier than working with actual real charcoal, I'll tell you that.

    it is hard to tell though, the strokes are very nice, they look very convincing

    @Juggernut thanks a bunch, i should really make more comics

    Hey remember that door i painted a billion years ago? I didn't gesso the canvas so now it looks like this:
    dj5bw91zah1w.jpg

    So I just redid it on another canvas that I actually prepared correctly:

    it's still in my possession though, so I'll be able to fix up that wonky ceiling light and bad texture/lighting above the door before I hand it off to its original intended recipient
