Kind of need some input

BakuBaku Registered User new member
Hi friends (fellow artists) I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a decent site for brushes (specifically lineart brushes are more favorable for now but coloring brushes and other stuff is greatly appreciated.)

Also i'm kind of new to comics (as I've only made two so far...) so I would appreciate if I could get some input on one of them

so yeah I greatly appreciate any help or input

    Lineart brushes as in what kind of lineart? Really I just use a hard round brush with pressure sensitivity on, looks like yours is off?

    Like crayon effects and such (I should probably edit that part out because I just started playing with brush settings...)

    Most effects you are thinking of can be done with simple hard or soft round brushes by messing with the jitter, shape dynamics, textures, etc. There are some good links to brushes buried in the Questions and Tutorials thread for some alternative things you might need, like grunge and splash brushes.

    You should probably save using a higher quality JPEG or PNG rather than what you have here. Your comic is big enough and saved at low enough quality for color degredation in places.

    Please please please hand letter or get a decent lettering font from Blambot or something; I can't even objectively evaluate the comic because all I can see is that font.

    Also, yes. Vary your line width.

    Stay away from hyper-saturated colors, especially in your backgrounds -- they pull the eye immediately away from your characters. In those first few panels I cannot stop looking at those books (which escape the borders in panel 2, sloppily and inexplicably).

    Are you using a wacom or anything like that for your lines or just a mouse?
    That would give you better lines with being able to get the strokes and such.
    I'd also work in a large resolution, between 300 and 600 dpi.

    Not a bad start though.
