Siegfried's New Thread: Dawn of a New Age

edited June 2013 in Artist's Corner
My previous, rarely-updated thread was from when I was a student, a mere child looking for a place to put his art-complishments...

Now I am a man, a graduate from an esteemed university with nothing to lose and everything to prove. It seems appropriate to create a new thread to honor this milestone.

Anyways, here's some slightly more recent stuff from the old thread to kick this off, along with an introduction for anyone that doesn't know already:

My name is Kyle and I am a graphic designer with a Bachelor of Science in Design from the University of Cincinnati. In addition to design, I like to make comics and other things over at www.rgbfame.com. I hope you like them too.

Awhile ago I was posting regular updates of my senior thesis/capstone project in an [Enrichment] thread, but I never got around to posting the final product. Well, here it is, The Bachelor's Survival Guide in all of it's glory: http://bit.ly/1274H8O

Please note this is not the entire book page-for-page, as that would be a little unnecessary and I may be doing something with them in the future. Stay tuned.

    Law shark is hilarious, and your infographics are super stylish.

    My only comment on the booklet is that the faded-out images behind the text are probably unnecessary, they'll just make the text a bit harder to read.

    Dude, the tan comic is super slick and dope. The design on the book is clean and fun without being overly funky for funky's sake, nice job. High fives all around.


    @wahay wait, you live in Hyde Park? I live in Norwood, WHAT!?!

    That bachelor's guide is nifty! It kind of reminds me of an at-home menu I wanted to make for when my friends would come over featuring my top 5 dishes (4 of them would be cereal related).

    And love the janitor bit, lol!

    Thread Revival with some business cards, looking for some critique if anyone cares to offer it.

    It's designed so that if you put two of them side-by-side, the pattern is seamless.

    Here are some slight variations of the background pattern, please let me know if you think one of these options is better.

    all the images in the spoiler look the same to me? Did you link the wrong image?

    I just noticed something else so I made some options for the website type at the bottom:

    @iruka the faded hexagon pattern in the background is just slightly different in each one, and the last one has no pattern at all. Can you not see it on your monitor? I wonder if it should be darker.

    Oh man, It was totally, completely invisible on my shitty monitor. things print darker, so that may be a non issue. I actually like them with the white space, though.

    Sick of sitting on this for so long so I'm just calling it done:

    I realize is is probably now what you are going for, but the second one makes me think of poo, like "Drinking beer makes you shit" rather than "drink beer and make stuff" which what I assume the poster is? I think that the inclusion of and or & may help, and I prefer the bold text over the spatter text.

    @iruka Ah good point, I was liking the more clean version anyways.

    Cool. Nice polish on your work.

    Thread necromancy! I'm drawing a lot more these days. Trying to find a better method to make and post comics that doesn't involve me spending so much time on them and then losing interest. Basically I get up to inking and dialogue and then I just feel so done with it, but they lack polish so I never consider them "done." I'd like to add color or screentones at least but like I said, after I transfer and ink it I just don't want to look at it any more.

    Anyways I'm drawing a lot more, here's some sketches:

    Thank you!

    Also here's a new comic I posted on my tumblr: http://rgbfame.com/post/140205906058/rgbfame-for-22916

    tumblr_o38bj052fk1r038ijo1_1280.png

    I'm getting more comfortable with figuring out my own process and using half-tones and stuff. Currently I draw everything out by hand, then I do a shoddy ink job and take photos of the panels individually. From there I convert it to Black and White in photoshop and begin the touching up process, sometimes drawing new lines if I have to. Since I don't have any fancy inking materials, I may try doing a 2nd inking digitally to get the kind of line-weight variation I desire. I get frustrated when I draw digitally, but I think that may just come from inexperience. For now I'm trying to divide it up between traditional media and digital, and then steadily go one way or the other as I become more comfortable and develop my skills.

    Anyways, any and all critique is welcome!
