With this strip I wanted to try and do more small individual panels, now that I’m working with a bit larger of an image. I think I could go even smaller and be happy. Another thing I’m realizing is that I should probably create more backgrounds for the alternate angles and such.
As usual, here is my stream of consciousness/bad case of logorrhea (great word, look it up) all about today’s strip: I’m really enjoying doing the smaller panels, as it constantly forces me to redraw things and figure out different ways to do things. I also like how the smaller panel within the triptych turned out, and… Continue reading Bo.
I am really proud with how this comic turned out, especially the art. It was a total beast to churn out because of all the unique panels and overlapping things and such. I had a total of 37 layers (not including text layers) which is kind of ridiculous. One thing I wish I’d been doing… Continue reading Total Cutie
I’m currently debating posting these on a set schedule, but if I do it’d probably only be every Friday. What do you guys think–should I keep going at the sporratic pace, or try and even these suckers out? I am a becoming a huge fan of the abstract background (seen in the triptych). It’s nice… Continue reading The Harbinger
I don’t want to make this a post about everything I hate about this comic (there is quite a bit), but I would like it known that that I am very unhappy with it. But I’m okay with that. You see, this comic is one big experiment for me. I try and do something new… Continue reading History Lesson
This comic was a stretch to get done before Friday. I’ve been working on a lot of different projects lately (some really exciting stuff), and so writing Dungeon Crawlers got put on the back burner. I sketched out the idea for this one at lunch yesterday and then drew it up on the computer later in the evening.… Continue reading Wheely Thingy
This time I went with an entirely new process, by using the pencil tool, instead of the brush tool. Let me show you what I mean: If you look closely at the pencil tool, there is a sharp edge with one tone, whereas the brush looks softer because it very slightly fades into the… Continue reading The Journey
I actually finished this one by Monday, since I was so excited to draw it. Again, this was with the pencil tool and lots of redrawing, as opposed to reusing panels. I think that’s something that makes making this comic more fun, is the actual drawing of it. This sounds silly, I know, but what… Continue reading Super Powerful Guardian Guy
This comic took me longer than any other one so far, but it is easily the one I am most proud of so far. I had the idea to riff on the opening scene of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, but I took it a step further and decided to take backgrounds… Continue reading Raiders of the Lost Something or Other
Simple enough comic this time. I am trying to get more into doing different backgrounds, but pretty much all of the ones I’ve done so far just reuse to save time. I’m really happy with the lighting filtering in through the window and the lazery blast thingy. No other comments really…
