…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.

    Almost a whole year (fuck time)has passed. But I’m finally ready to show the first 10 pages of this project.

    Have fun with ripping it apart. Don’t mind the spelling to much, but please do point it out if it’s to egregious.

    Damn. I can’t quite place the era off the cuff, but this reminds me of all my fav webcomics I read as a teenager, in a good way. Beyond the scope of webcomics for a sec, you’re using a lot of really classy comic book techniques that you don’t see as much online now, due to either a different artistic upbringings or because the artist is drawing with speed in mind (your three panel gag strips etc). It’s so pleasant just to see a lot of lines, as daft as that sounds. The extra work you’re putting in is noticeable. Good job!

    If I was to critic anything, it’d just be to leave more of a border gap around the text in speech bubbles.

    Oh and I’ve just realised that ‘to’ in the first panel should be ‘too’. Probably the worst word in the English language. I do that all the time.
