I’ve finished the first page of my Zelda comic and now have working title: Remnant. I’ll be tagging stuff #loz:remnant that relates to it. First page I’ll post tonight!
bless you ;3; <333 I need all the support I can get. this comic might be in the list of top 3 hardest things I’ve ever decided to do. I’m an instant gratification artist, I like to have it all now ;3; but comics aren’t like that, they require planning ;3; BUT when people send me stuff that they’re excited about my comic i start getting rad excited because omg people want this ;3; <3333
Thank you so much! I’m not sure where to put it. I’ve already written the first chapter (I’ll probably want a few done before i start posting). I’m still not quite sure how I want to integrate comic to fic I guess. At first I thought I just wanted it to be sort of separate things, but now I’m looking into stronger integration. I don’t know. ;3;
ahh, thank you c: I’m still scared of the comic as a medium, I’ll probably be supplementing a fic with comics. Demon Road has a lot more scope then I’d want to do with just my small comic, lol ;3;
Thank you! c:
Thank you so much!
Ahhh, I started drawing in earnest about 12 years ago, that’s when I started filling up sketchbooks. I did mostly horses! I didn’t even try people at all until about 6 years ago, though OTL.
Digital art…hmmm. My experience with it has been that it is it’s own beast, neither easier nor harder exactly. It’s just a different medium. I find colored work is way easier in digital, mostly because I have a bag of tricks that I throw at my pieces that I wouldn’t know how on earth to do with traditional.
BUT I WILL SAY that I absolutely love digital art, mostly because I happen to like my bag of tricks. Digital is very forgiving—nothing is permanent or unfixable, usually. It’s easy to move things around, to correct things cleanly and fix anatomy mistakes. I personally love how digital art looks.
Like any technical skill, there’s a learning curve—some drawing programs are easier than others.
In case you’re wondering, I use Photoshop CC, which is a fair amount of money starting out. But lately I’ve been playing around a lot with Manga Studio 5. It’s currently on Amazon for about $30, and for someone who’s starting out and can’t afford photoshop, it’s a really great alternative. People also love SAI a lot, and that’s worth checking out too.
I will say though that digital art is easy to me because I know what I want, and I know what the medium is doing for me. I know how color works more or less, and I know how shadows work. I know what I’m trying to say when I sketch, and I make the tool help me say it.
Wow! what a long post. Sorry for my rambles.
tl;dr: digital art has it’s strengths and weaknesses.
Thank you! c: <3333
