Read muh cumichttps://tapas.io/series/Tad-Danger-Substitute-Ranger
>>119131612>you just know
Also made a model sheet for a new series me and passer are going to work on.Im going to write it, she is going to do the art.its going to be darker and edgier than Tad. I want full 90's punk rock edge.The Pitch>Dark Lord Dan is about a post apocalyptic desert dieselpunk world that is ruled by despotic murderous warlords constantly fighting over their city states. Dan is an idiotic manchild who fancies himself a villain. He wishes nothing more than to conquer the world. He is like a saturday morning cartoon villain taking on actual murderous warlords. In the process he is gaining support because he is not remotely as evil as the warlords, and is accidentally helping people. People just have to keep playing into his delusions in order to keep his warlord killing spree going.
>>119131934Red version. Still haven't decided if i like red or purple better.
What's happening in this thread?
>>119131934>>119131953HELL YEAH! I got a FEELING about this one! My concept work is not so polished, ha ha. Maybe I’ll get something more postable done if I yell at myself loudly enough!
>>119131833I do not know, fuckface.
>>119131934>>119131953>>119132067it will be super cute ლ(´ڡ`ლ)
>>119132198Oh, but it’ll also be deliciously edgy! That’s why I’m so excited to work on this project. I hope I can get the art-writing contrast juuuuuuuust right!
https://tapas.io/episode/1964211New update out
Incomprehensible draft bump!You doing anything holiday-related for your comic?
Also,How did you decide that THIS aid the story you want to tell and not the five dozen other ones bouncing around in your head? I want to know!
>>119135295You just have to go for it really. I was in the same place with Kit and Squeaks but My friend told me the more I ponder on if the story is good or worth going the more time is wasted NOT doing it. To me it's just a leap of faith
>>119135295First year grade school. Teacher decided the best way to get kids writing was to attach it to drawing. So we had to make comics.I made one about funny animals going to school, it lasted about two panels. So, fate I guess.https://tapas.io/episode/1963807 (not the one from grade school)
Guys, I absolutely suck at drawing perspective, should I just go 3d/cgi and just draw textures?
>>119136530You can use the CGI as a crutch, make wireframe stuff to draw on.
>>119136530encase your characters and stuff in cubes, makes it simpler to do
No FF next week. I'm caught up in this art fight, and want to end it with a nice two-paged comic. I resume updates come December. In the meantime, I made a big piece for the art fight, based on my future Malaise miniseries. Protagonist couple Emmanuel (host) and Alma (feathery parasite) defending N.O.A.M (li'l bug fella on lily flower) from a horrible amalgamation of decaying creatures and matter with the power of love!>>119135295>How did you decide that THIS aid the story you want to tell and not the five dozen other ones bouncing around in your head? I want to know!Technically, with FaustFall, I got 150 or so pages in with the first version, but later revised it to its current form due to my dissatisfaction with the story. In general, though, I just consider what kind of ideas I want to explore with a basic overview of how the story, characters, and world-building are like, and refine those throughout the writing process while I work my way through the comic. For instances, I'm currently on book #5 for FaustFall, but on the script for book #21. By the time I reach that point with the comic, I've likely revised the story ten times over. I make sure I stay committed with the story elements already in the comic. It's about expanding on what you currently have rather than constantly building out with too many loose ends.I also think it's useful to take those "five dozen other ones bouncing around in your head" and make them into very short comics. I've done a few of my own at this point.
how the HECK is your weekend going fellas>>119136794this is such a cool look, great work>>119132067hell yeah, my boy's back at it. looks like a fun character. she a cute
What are some random ideas you had for your oh so amazing worldbuilding? Not a linguist, so I'm not gonna bother with different languages for the various countries, but I was thinking maybe having most of the nations have different naming conventions.
>>119140906For my fantasy saga, only nobles were allowed to have a last name (family name). Commoners used Id (name of their hometown). So for example the mc was Reed Id Vant (Reed from Vant) but his blue-blooded friend was Gallahard Arleon.Also royalty used 2 names, IE Aiwass Flowrian Aurora
>>119140906>your oh so amazing worldbuilding? If you feel like getting sarcastic about people that put more effort in their comics then maybe just stick to 4 panel humor comics and don't even bring up these questions.
>the OP pic isn't the animated giflame
>>119140906There are three H’s of space travel:>Honor exoplanetary life.>Help your fellow spacefarers.>Hope is a limitless resource.Here you can see Bee and Gary follow the second H’s conventions.
>>119141178Last thread ended unexpectedly, its coming along though last i saw
>>119141222It would never be finished in time anyway because it has too many squares and there are not even enough comic creators complete it.
>>119140906I dont believe in world building. I think world building is one of the worst writing traps you can fall into.I prefer to just jump into a plot, and whatever shit i come up with on the spot, that at least makes sense in context, is just part of the world, and the world grows naturally on its own.This is why all the mecha is made by a knockoff IKEA and everything over 6'4'' is considered a Kaiju.
>>119141983Yeah, I think someone here described it like being in court. Say as little as you need to in order to get the point across, so you don't bog things down or write yourself into a corner. That really stuck with me
WORKING ON ADMIRAL PIZZA BOOK 3! 80 pages!! The Admiral fights the high cost of printing books in his biggest and most expensive adventure YET! Will he get his shit together in time?! STAY TUNED!! READ THE ADMIRAL NOW https://tapas.io/series/Admiral-pizza-/info
>>119141983>>119142550I think there are times when world building is more important than you guys are making it out to be, but it really depends on the story.It also depends on how invested you want people to be. If you just want to tell the story, or focus on the characters, it might not be as important to world build, but if you want the readers to believe that your story's universe exists beyond the borders of your comic. Some comics make the mistake of (unintentionally) putting their story in a weird pocket dimension where its like all the events and places of the comic, happen in the comic, and there's just nothing left that exists outside of that.
I have like 80 strips done but no one I can run them by for advice, would people here help me if I posted a link?
>>119143494Just post them here.
>>119143494The Admiral is Here to save the day! Just post them here, why not? JUST DO IT!!
>>119142798Its not like its pointless, I just find its not worth focusing on it too hard early on. Above all else the story should come first, and a plausible environment will naturally form around it. Of course, internal consistency is important. Something that comes to mind is ATLA, which seems to do a nice job of introducing foundational details of the world little by little, then expands upon them as the series progresses in a way that feels really immersive but not overwhelming. I cant imagine the entire atla setting as we know it was that developed when they were writing the first seasontake my opinion with a grain of salt though cause I barely know what im doing
>>119141983this is not a waifu pic
>>119130690>#700>G didn’t get to complete the special gif header in time before the thread died
>>119145170>the thread is dead
>>119145299then why is it on page 1?
>>119145334It is a psy op, anon.
>>119145103It is if you are brave
>>119142550This is what it's all about. Comics are all about getting as much information across using as little dialogue and panels as possible. In my experience less is usually more, and basics like pacing, storytelling, and engaging characters matter more than having impressive technical art skills or epic deep lore world building skills.
>>119145103speak for yourself
I get the feeling that some of you guys think "world building" = "Gigantic, unnecessary text dumps."
>>119145852Thats what I think of as the wrong way to do it
>>119145852world building is an excuse for procrastination
Which hyw girl has the best pussy?
>>119145875And you'd be right, which is the only real reason I can think of that anyone would think world building was bad.
>>119145103Have some sexy oni fan art
>>119130690this is my first comic, in total it has about 150 pages, spread across 3 episodes. i'm gonna release it once i get a decent scanner
>>119145917Not at all, world building usually means it has an enormous work load.
>>119146026Just look at how badly done le deep lore world building destroyed Adventure Time and Star Vs.
>>119146096Procrastinating deep lore masturwriters say things like this to justify their procrastination.
>>119145944they are all hos and sluts.
bros I'm getting published... I think
I'm scared to post comic
>>119146041look at that cleavage on gurk, that sexy slut
>>119146121Oh, is that so? I sure hope to see people create stories with lots of world building and actually finish it to show they didn't procrastinate. Working on those stories tend to be quite unforgiving for the slackers.
>>119146048>>119146075Art looks dope, im jelly
>>119146352Thanks, my comic is mostly focused on starship combat, but i'm trying to improve on my character work too. R8 my alien design
>>119146152Tell us more!
>>119143788>>119144773Sure why not.https://imgur.com/a/F8deqEo
>>119146474I submitted to a small publisher and they got back to me like two days later. It's a big long adventure comic I've been working on with a friend for a while. Feels pretty hype.
>>119146456Ahhhhhhhh its on lined paper aaaaahGood news is you should be able to massage that out using a photo editing program like paint.net. Also, if that's mostly graphite, i urge you to be very delicate with those pages so they don't smear before you get a good scan.That said I find the characters to look pretty simple compared to the ships, which aint the end of the world. Their designs seem solid imo. To me though your strength lies in your 3d ships, and their shapes, those look very cool and clean to me.
>>119146456It's alright. They appear to be able to emote and there's potential for more indvidual designs down the road.
>>119146628I drew all these in school, so that was the only kind of paper I had access to, but yeah I know how to get rid of the lines.
>>119146681here i'll just put up my DA page https://www.deviantart.com/kingg42c/gallery
>>119146510you've already posted this here before
>>119146681You mainly need a flatbed scanner. Then you turn some knobs.t. usually draws rabbits
>>119146510Either grind basic character drawing, or add more crazy shit to each panel... are my immediate reactions. Hell, do both.I don't see any problem in a comic that's royally messed up, after all Pokey the Penguin is my favorite.

Does your OC smoke weed ?
>>119131934This is an actually interesting idea! I'd love to check it out.>>119133119Unoriginal, unfunny and boring>>119142710Boring and has a "I'm so random XD" kind of humor.>>119146510You took all the most boring tropes out of the high school and super hero genres and mashed them together. What were you even trying to do? What's the point of the story? What's even the idea of the story?>>119147002You got talent
I done a new page of Golf Girl. I'm slowly starting to introduce the other main characters and how they get their powers. I also did a cheap reference to Alien 3.https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/golf-girl/list?title_no=353839I feel like I'm getting more solid with my drawing, especially when I compare to the chapter 1 pages I did last year. A lot of it is probably shifting over to Clip Studio Paint, which has a load of quality of life tools. I no longer fear drawing backgrounds. The only issue is that the lettering tools are crap, so I have to switch back to Photoshop for that part.
I was supposed to use this character for Medibang's Jump Manga Contest but I missed the deadline. Idk what to do with her now. The main catch was basically that it was about cute anime girls fighting each other with electric yo-yo's with a cyber roller skate aesthetic. That's literally it and there's no real plot past that. If the Jump contest hosts the overseas version again I'm definitely using her and finishing that comic though.
>>119149673This is good. I miss libraries being open.>>119149045Poxface and Dana do.>>119147341but why did the catfights die?>>119146048>>119146075this is cool. New Oi update is here:The 10 haunted forest commandments:Never wander off in a haunted forest alone.https://tapas.io/episode/1965204https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/oi-tales-of-bardic-fury/episode-viii-the-banshee-vale-horror-show-part-8/viewer?title_no=303092&episode_no=51
>>119150325this is really nice, do you have more of your art online anywhere?
Update streak continues and we see more of Guugel's psychic abilities at work. I'm glad that I have been able to introduce his psychic dialogue into the comic.
>>119151381Also, my collective is going to be rolling out sticker sheets, so it was fun to draw my characters in a chibi style.
>>119150963I plan to start posting shit here in the future:https://medibang.com/u/Jellobowl/profile/Your art is pretty cool too, I love the hatching and how its colored
>>119151410I take your chibi and see you:Great to have our stickers on same sheet.
Pls halp. I'm conflicted on whether I should do black and white line shading, or full color comic panels. I can produce the black and white a lot faster, but I plan to put my comic on webtoons and I noticed pretty much all of the top comics are full color. If I did full color, I can only make panels quickly if I do the limited color like the picture example.
>>119152428Fuck yeah, brother.
>>119152448I think the art in black and white looks a bit more polished than the color art, mostly due to the coloring style you went with. I'd suggest posting black and white and coloring later when you find a style that compliments your line work a bit better.
>>119152453Hells yeah brother
>>119152479Thanks anon,I've never been good at coloring unless I devote weeks to something. I was hoping to skip the black and white phase all old webcomics seem to switch out of over time, but I guess readers will just have to deal with it.
>>119152640Or, think ahead and hold the colored versions for an eventual printed collection. Love the comic in black and white, buy the book for the colored version.
>>119149601What do u think of this https://m.tapas.io/episode/994035
>>119150943>This is good. I miss libraries being openThanks mate. And yeah, I used to go draw in them pretty often and in the UK they're often really neat old buildings with loads of character. It's ironic since Golf Girl is ostensibly set in our time but in a version of the world that isn't fucked. Used to feel optimistic writing it, now it's pure escapism.
I'll post the character select gif from time to time until every square is filled, no need to rush it now.>>119147841>>119147428>>119148662Have you forgotten already?He will cometh>>119150943>but why did the catfights die?beats me. They won't feast with the gods in valhalla with that attitude>>119152448I'm trying both and -slow- colored updates seem to be getting more views. In your pic the b&w option is superior by far.
How do we keep this threads alive?
>>119155794Maybe asking questions about pages people post. I see a lot of comics posted here that straight up get ignored.
>>119136573>>119136735Thanks for the advice, tried using photos that looked similar to what I wanted to draw, but still no luck. At least I'm pretty good at drawing "flat". Hopefully people don't mind CGI too much.
>>119131827Why is there a chapter entirely in Japanese?
>>119150943>but why did the catfights die?I was waiting for Rococo entry/using that as an excuse to finish my finale and other things first.I'm not out mind you.>>119155794I'll probably take a rest from the threads in a while and then return recharged with energy and interest for new comics.
>>119157118Kaiju High is a half-baked anime parody I did for Smacky! Honestly, I work better when he directs me (see Origins).
>>119157855What is it supposed to say?
>>119158349No, it's not
Another 2 pages down. 20 more to the end of the chapter. Posting the previous two as well.
>>119160458It made me laugh, but what do I know?I'm not a very funny guy. I've been told I'm very serious and my attempts at humor often fall flat.
>>119161166wow, grotesque and creepyGood job!
>>119159486Complete nonsense!>>119161137I super enjoy the lighting in these pages!>>119160458You know, that’s fair. I’m not a comedian. However, Smacky’s approval is really all that matters to me. If it was good for him, it’s good for the comic. Thank you for the feedback, though! I will work hard to be a better begetter!
HOW DO I MAKE A COMIC
>>>119163142>HOW DO I MAKE A COMICCome up with a story, and then draw it. Can't really give you a better answer without a more specific question.
Here are the first 4 pages of my next comic.(photos not scans yet) I worry i do too many large panels/pages of art and not enough dialogue so my stuff reads too quickly. But what can ya do...Last comichttps://www.bustercagle.com/the-last-aviatrix-iss-1
>>119163506Page 3 and 4.I hope ya like this shit IDK man, its just a comic of things i want to draw. muscle skeleton man included
>>119163142read this, see how it goes.
>>119163142>>119163369Like this.t. should be drawing rabbits
>>119163142>>119163369Dont even come up with a story. Just draw
Ghoul hour who up
>>119139197>this is such a cool look, great workThanks man. It's nice to make an overly detailed illustration now and again, outside of comics.>>119164084Evening. Ghoul hour is my art hour.
>>119164191Ghoul hour is definitely my most productive time of day as well. Minimal distraction.for the sake of conversation, a funny thing i noticed about one of my characters is that she kinda looks like a polo/horse girl; but is inspired by this completely undrelated soviet steel helmet. This is not an intentional design feature at all but I find it really funny that it happened by accident, as i think it gives her a bit more character despite not having a lot of 'screen time'
>>119164084basically everything i make is at ghoul o clock
>>119149601would love to see your art.
bump bump bump
Bump, ill start drawing on my computer again once I get home in a week or two.
>>119163520>>119163506>>119163493Cykka blyat these pages are fantastic
Questions:How do you feel about comics that have (optional) custom music/soundtracks? How often, if ever, would you release colored pages? If you have plot twists, how do you gage whether or not you're making them too obvious?
>>119130690Don't forget to vote on Decitron vs Ellie!
>>119163142This is how you draw cool comics like the Admiral
>>119167873>How do you feel about comics that have (optional) custom music/soundtracks?Works sometimes, sometimes it just startles and annoys me. I think it works the best when I can somehow see coming that a cool song will start. Or if there are songs every time. Or like Tad Danger that cues you in to google the song and play it as you read.>How often, if ever, would you release colored pages?First part of my comic was uncolored, second one I decided eventually for full color as it masks my imperfections a bit.>If you have plot twists, how do you gage whether or not you're making them too obvious?I have had a couple of them and I don't think anyone realized they were going to happen.Rau and Azu being the princesses.Sutak turning into an oniShuten having repentedAlthough the last one I feel its more like, most readers not quite following the story.There is one plot twist left for the epilogue which I feel its INCREDIBLY obvious yet no one has ever mentioned it to me so it might come as a cool surprise.
>>119163142This is how you write cool comics like me
>>119168134Good advice anon. It's interesting to hear that you think coloring helps you hide imperfections. I would've thought it would add another layer of stress. And I'm happy to hear your plot twists worked out. I guess it's natural that the author is the one who thinks about their work the most deeply.
>>119168136>>119168095So fucking incompetent. The hubris on this guy. You also misspelled exciting.
>>119168134>There is one plot twist left for the epilogue which I feel its INCREDIBLY obvious yet no one has ever mentioned it to me so it might come as a cool surprise.It's coming
>>119150325Wow this is amazing. Do you have an Instagram?
>>119168455It's how to do comics, NOT a spelling lesson.
>>119130690>What other /hyw/ character do you wish you could steal for your own comic?I answered this question last thread, but it would be Tad Danger. He probably exists in Soren’s universe, and Soren vice-versa. But I will pontificate that Soren is probably really old or has passed away by the time of Tad Danger’s story since I imagine his own mecha career takes place during the 1950s. Admiral Pizza has a better chance of meeting Soren in his prime.>>119147341>>119154578There’s always next time, G. >>119167873>How do you feel about comics that have (optional) custom music/soundtracks? I think they’re fantastic! For example, Prequel didn’t use original music afaik, but music really brought some life into the comic at certain points. I really want to do something with original music, but my musical talents are nonexistent. I was thinking of hiring a composer to make a song, but thats way to expensive.>How often, if ever, would you release colored pages? Only for a very special episode or dramatic moment. Haven’t gotten to that point yet. It takes a long time to do colored pages for me so I stick with B&W.>If you have plot twists, how do you gauge whether or not you're making them too obvious?I like to think most people take things at face-value unless they’re the skeptical sort. I give the audience as little information as possible so they can form their own conclusions. So far, it seems to have worked.>>119168134>There is one plot twist left for the epilogue which I feel its INCREDIBLY obvious yet no one has ever mentioned it to me so it might come as a cool surprise.I’m not ready for the pain.
>>119123287Holy shit you are literally my favorite artist it's cool to see you here
Don't let it.
>>119170006Yeah thats kinda what I always describe the setting of Tad as.>Somewhere in the future that is convenient for me!Maybe an old man will make a cameo somewhere.
I really just wanna make a goofy comic about 4 alien miscreants messing around in deep space. Call it something like, "Deep Space Mates patrol" or some shit.
>>119151410>>119152428And the finished result

>>119174499Really hoping that page does eventually become a story, I was imagining something along the lines of the nazis abducting Santa and trying to force him to create some otherwise unobtainable part/ingredient for some superweapon, and Admiral Pizza and friends rescuing Santa.>>119174528>unsupported file formatDefinite ouch, what operating system do you have? You should run some diagnostic programs, sounds like your computer may be having issues that need to get addressed.
>>119174605Very close- The plot behind it is a young scientist is very eager to discover the secrets of Antarctica. And to solve to mystery of Admiral Byirds final flight. His team goes for an expedition and never returns-Years later in 1978 They receive a message. An outcast rouge Nazi regimen has taken over Santas workshop. Col. Claus and his men where forsaken for refusing to fight on christmas day, He Goes Mad and decides that all across the world-Every day-All day-For all of time, Will be CHRISTMAS! Candy Cane, The Gruelmasters wife is his daughter. David Bowie as Dracula saves the day- And learns the true meaning of Christmas spirit. Santa and his elfs retire and Dracula becomes Santa and the Nazis take over and make the toys for all the kids
>>119173569I really enjoyed doing this panel.
god damn it i'm slow
>>119177316drawing backgrounds are hard
>>119176416Good. I want the invader zim/hazbin hotel audience.They will consume it religiously.I want my cringe to be infested with gay fanfics and unabashed shipping. It's all part of the plan.
aight posting stuff so thread dont diehyw would you read my comic based on the cover?
>>119178086I mean maybe after you get some color in it? Like the character designs look a bit generic but it's the writing that counts. I would give the first 5 pages a try at least and keep going if it grasps me.
>>119178086only for the bearded guy
Finally have a very simple plot down, basically what I want to happen and a decent ending. my main beef is using tumblr/twitter because of the nature of the comic....
>>119178826Frankly, this looks like it’d be right up Twitter and tumblr’s alley.
>>119179385Oh is cannibalism and murder also a twitter/tumblr thing too
>>119179565then i guess i have to agree with you. I get that I have the "tumblr" art style (sadly). Im trying to lean more towards a combination of Jamie Hewlett and Dave Cooper for the actual comic style in the future. Still working on it though

>>119130690 Second time doing a comic, about 1/6 done with the coloring. I’ll get it scanned as soon I’m done. Is there any mistakes comic artist should avoid?
>>119183893Oops forgot pic related
Which hyw girl do you want to mating press right now?
Hey anons. What would you like to see in the crossover?
>>119183893>Is there any mistakes comic artist should avoid?being a perfectionist
>>119183893>>119183912This actually looks nice. I would recommend using panel gutters next time. It helps break up the drawings. a simple black line doesn't always read well enough as a separation.and your lettering isn't bad. But a lettering guide might help make it a bit easier to read at a glance.that all said, this looks cool, and those aren't even rules, just suggestions that popped out to me.
>>119183354I wish tadley would look at me like shang looks at ping
>>119184322Oni Girls, or Robot girls?
>>119185477Oni are SO 2019, get on with the times
>>119185477Oni is dead. Long live the Robots.
>>119182156I sure hope not, anon.
>>119185651When I originally read that page, I immediately saw a possibility for that prophecy to mean Aideen's actions leading to someone else's death.
>>119185202Yeah I messed up with the bordering part I have a habit of not being able to know how to condense a drawing to fit in a panel, and as for the lettering I’ll use a more appropriate guide since I just eye ball it when drawing this panel, thanks man
>>119178480Very interesting. I didn't expect people to react that positively to my bearded dude. Now i'm sad his role is getting less and less important as the story progresses....
So anons im doing an animated webcomic and something weird happened So i have these 2 main characters a boy and a girl that explore a dungeon that works like pokemon mystery dungeon using their mechas, and i know that when writing and designing stuff my influences were the following>mechas are based on mega man legends, dr slump and pac man>the main girl and her pet are based on finn from adventure time and the videogame “a boy and his blob“>for the main guy im pretty sure it started like simon from gurren laggan i gave it a robot leg because my own right leg has been feeling awful for reasons that aren’t worth talking here, and then i gave him small horns because i wanted him to have oni powers later onSo then someone that is helponh me with this shows me this anime called “made in the abbys”, that i have never seen before storywise i can see why my original story draft seemed similar but i worked around it and now i feel comfortable, then i saw the kid from that show and is just better for obvious reasons way cuter too now i feel like re designing my character completely like the weird thing is people told me “hey that looks like megaman legends or adventure time it wouldnt bother me at all but if its something i never watched it does bother meMakes me wonder how those two guys who made deniss the menace dealt with it, is like a super extreme case of what im feeling
>>119187274Write it off as "great minds think alike".
>>119187470it bothered me enough to blogpost about it, i usually talk this kind of stuff with people i know because i don't like writing it online but think writting that list helped me figure out how to fix it i'll just addd Yatterman elements to the design this way if someone says this look like yatterman i'll say YES like a happy /m/ fag, also because it crossover with the stuff i mentioned and morehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0bGB_d3yLI
>>119168079It's over, tourney anon https://strawpoll.com/pyzqa8dry/rI even memed about it last thread >>119115424>>119170006Will you add Soren, bonart kun?I'm getting those characters at gunpoint if needed.>>119174469I've known that feel several times now.

What the FUCK kind of waifu do I have to draw to get you fags to notice me!?
>>119189754Just make her really hot and appeal to a niche fetish and you will succeed.
how many of you have a full time job?how do you draw your comic in a timely manner?
>>119190413>how many of you have a full time job?I do.>how do you draw your comic in a timely manner?Haha....what?
>>119190413I lost my day-job at the onset of the pandemic. Haven’t had a commission in over a year.As for the second question, I’m very behind right now. I usually get on the right track, but I get distracted and frustrated easily. It took me about half a year to draw up 60~ish pages for my comic. Even though I’m without a job, this has given me all the proper time to get ahead and work on the comic.
>>119190874The two images aside from Soren from 2019 are the commissions I had. I was told I had stagnated/regressed after the transition to digital.>>119188071>Will you add Soren, bonart kun?I will! I’ll post him shortly.
>>119191059I dig those portraits, really nice my friend
>>119191059nice progress, really gives me hope
>>119191059Nice. 2017-2018 is your peak era
>>1191911342020 to me
>>119191134>>119191624yeah I think the time economy would be different too. A single headshot piece is gonna be a lot more time investment than a reaction face in a comic, plus branching out to new techniques ect
>>119191059I got the impression that it's easier for you doing traditional work than digital. Am I wrong?Good progress btw
>does your webcomic have any romance?>bonus question: Is it based on your real life experiences?
>>119192608How does one write a romance if one has never known love?
>>119192802>>119192608The romantic plot elements in Br2049 seem written to be from a perspective of lovelessness, I found it to be compelling.
>>119188071Here you go, G. Please don’t shoot me.>>119191081>>119191128>>119191134>>119191624Thanks, anons. 2017-18 was a great time to learn traditionally. This year I feel like I’ve slowly gotten a little better at digital.>>119191832Thank you. No, you’re right. Doing traditional is a lot easier for me. I once considered doing the comic in traditional, but digital comics seem to get a lot more traction/views online.>>119192608There’s Barry and Katherine. >bonus questionEh, some of it.
>>119192608>>does your webcomic have any romance?Yes.>>bonus question: Is it based on your real life experiences?Sorta. I have a long distance relationship I'm setting up based on one I'm in right now.However I can safely say I have never tried to hook up with an alien robot, a cancer causing hologram, or any one-eyed psychobitches.Not for lack of trying.
Not gonna die on my watch
>119192608>does your webcomic have any romance?Not this one. My Lost Forest project has.>bonus question: Is it based on your real life experiences?Sorta.
>>119195363>>119192608never learned how to quote
Fa/tg/uy here with formal art program (Although I specialize in 3d work) experience here. Looking to make a 80-150 page comic (kinda hobby, kinda portfolio, I'm making for myself but I want at least a semblance of restraint.) but I'm having problems. You see, I'm thinking too damn big, as to when I'd DM shit I'd come up with characters and universe origin story's and all that jazz. At the same time, I don't want to bring that shit and eat up half the webcomic with explanations, while I also don't want to go full "these are people just live like this, deal with it." Basically, how do I think small with out fucking myself out of genre's I'm good at writing (Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Sports Drama)I have stuff I've been cooking, but one half is side story's from tabletop settings I've made, the others I have outlines for but already feel too large. (and the wrestling one I don't want to try till I have practiced action a bit more.)
>>119192608Most of them will. Pic related IS a love story inspired by distance-related angst I’ve had this year. Working on comics has been a bit of a struggle, though; everything posted of it so far is only fluff. I’m just sitting around being sad instead of productive.
>>119195622There are physical incompatibilities that I’ve only explored in concept sketches. Sue and Tollffsen are a world apart even when they’re together.https://youtu.be/Xqz9eyakGqY
>>119195558The number one rule to comics is "Show dont tell"Your readers can understand a lot just from context, and it doesnt need to be explicitly explained. Furthermore you assume they have the same questions you do about the world. The reader may just accept things at face value.Brevity is key. Say a lot with a little.Dont fall into the world building trap. Writers will set up a fleshed out world with rules and lore and forget to actually write the story or never get to it. Let the world and lore unfold naturally as you tell your story. Its okay to leave your reader guessing, it keeps them hooked.And if all this fails, include the deep lore nuggets as bonus materials, separate from the actual comic.
is the problem with "it was all just a dream" that it retroactively undermines the story, or that its a cop out to avoid actual character/world development? if you show that it's a dream from the beginning, can you get away with it?
>>119130690Rococo 1_41 Revised work in progress. Been listening to Hiroyuki Sawano soundtracks.
>>119195558Write your story as bombastic and detailed as you need. Then drop that setting-up chapter and continue from after it.

Posted third chapter today, finally getting into the swing of things with the team.
>>119200055I'm also excited to start showing some of the personality of the main character and the conflict that comes with her
>>119200055>>119200152What’s it like working on a team instead of by yourself?

Have you imagined what your character's genitals look like? Is it something creators do?
>>119201585I don’t even know what my own nethers look like, anon. But now that you mentioned it, I’m gonna say that all my characters canonically have Dirac Seas where their genitals should be.
>>119201585yesprobably not all of them, I'm just perverted

My web comic is going bad, it is over shadowed by fucking webtoon weeb 12 year old comics...like what the fuck! I didnt a get a degree for cartooning just to be shat on by some coomer drawing lolis on webtoons
>>119197506This is actually really good.
>>119197506Is it bad that I like your original colors way better than this white washed style?

>>119206709Being webcoomer is suffering. I’m knitting tonight.
>>119201585If I was considering that, I would just draw it. The bigger question for me is how big/puffy/cute the females nipples and areola are.

>>119204858>>119206152Thanks! >>119205625No, its not bad, everyone have their preferences. I also like the more controlled and fuller body coloring celshading I was doing, but I was having hard time adapting it to certain scenes recently, so I decided to change things up a little.
Does your story involve cucking?
>>119209945in later parts, kinda yes

>>119208973I like your art regardless, I just feel like it's losing something with all the loose coloring - almost looks like it was hastily scribbled in with Crayola markers. Sorry, not trying to be mean just not my favorite style,... keep up the good work
>>119209945Yeah. I even expect people to not hate on the cheating guy. Because of the context.
welp, shit happened that caused an almost week-long hiatus but now I'm back with page 8https://www.theduckwebcomics.com/LWBiverse>Question: Webcomic are for fags.

>>119214804>Solid premise>no storyWork on your characters. That is the key. When your characters are fleshed out and have clear personalities and motivations, the story will become self evident.
>>119214921>>119213915in wrestling terms Aideen started as a tweener heel and now I'm attempting to slow-build her in to a babyface. Soon perhaps her suffering will end.

>>119216443I can tell Maestro is your favorite character to draw. He eats the scenery, even when there are more or less identical peons around him. The way he carries himself sets him apart.
>>119218663thats Velasco tho
>>119204269>Got a degree.Hey buddy.You just blow in from stupid town?
>>119218663>>119218933Maestro and Velasco are both a lot of fun to draw, but Maestro is definitely THE most fun to draw because he is by the far the easiest to draw.
>>119219678>>119218933Aww my bad. Got my hats mixed up. Nonetheless my point stands. They are awesome designs.

https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/tone-deaf/list?title_no=542483More updates. I don’t think I’m really appealing to the webtoon audience.
I was practicing lineart, clip studio couldn't save, have to cut things up just to make a deadline for something.
Be genuine, am I wasting my time doing a bunch of research to incorporate a ton of symbolic references no one will get into character designs instead of just drawing cute girls
>>119231220If they're implemented in a way that don't end up mattering, or are never really made apparent in significance, or are so obscure noone will get them, then yes. Does this mean symbolism is a waste and you should just draw cute girls all the time? probably not
>>119231220I draw waifus in too, but I also pot lots of symbolism, double meanings, references, etc. It’s actually more fun if people are willing to do the deep dive and figure things out, and to see if people “get it” or not. If not, then oh well. Maybe someone will still pick up on it somewhere down the line.
>>119224966Still up, wow
>>119231220Put symbolic references onto a cute girl
>>119230107Post it on reddit and other normie websites

It's messier than I normally work, but that's to be expected since I drew it in a pocket-sized sketchpad inside a moving vehicle, lol.
How do you layout panels on comic pages?Is there a trick to getting a good flow and spacing for action?Finally, do fantasy comics have any sort of general rule about layout and paneling?
>>119232916Paneling is a very complex and important aspect of comic-ing, heres a big resource of good reading from the OP https://www.makingcomics.com/composition/
>>119231220>am I wasting my time doing a bunch of research to incorporate a ton of symbolic references no one will get into character designsIf you aren't good at character design and don't know what you're doing it's a waste of time, and you probably aren't at the level that people will want to see your drawings of cute girls either. Otherwise you wouldn't bother asking what you asked. The best advice is just get better at art.
Done with the finale.https://tapas.io/episode/1969112Epilogue next. It's gonna be a fun one.

does your character have parents that love each other?
