…and a has made one.

SUPRISE!

Ok, for the new year, one of my crazy resolutions for myself, was to make a comic. Not just a comic, but a one of those new-fangled webcomics. Some maybe have heard of them.
But since I have no experience and certainly no training doing this I was totally insecure to even try.
But hey, since it has been given away by the mere concept of me making this thread, I have now finished a short try-out chapter.

Enjoy,

Starring these two

    Nice! I know comic making is a ton of work so always huge respect for anyone that can make it to the finish on one. :+1::+1:

    great work! really nice story telling and body language! is it traditional? getting a comic finished is one of the best things you can do to kick your skills up a level or two! one of my favourite past times is finding web comic artists i like and going back to their first page and seeing the jump in skill!

    It is done in Procreate.
    This was also trying to find a correct (digital) workflow, that works for me. I have the bad habit to write stories without the dialogue in mind. So I do the thumbnails and experiment with the layout. Then sketch it out, then ink it all and finally write all the text.
    This is not the way.
    But hey, as I said, this was a learning experience. And although it is (a bit) rough around the edges, I had fun with it.

    i find i cant write without thumb nailing and the dialogue is usually the last stuff i add! if this is not the way i have no way!

    Nice! Keep it up! I’ll be reading it regular once it’s underway.

    I too thought it was traditional art; it’s good look.

    Some settings in Procreate are just too good to ignore, from a workflow standpoint. If I were to make rough guess, it cuts off about a third in time, from really rough sketch to acceptable ‘finished’ drawing.
