See this page? I wanna know if its half-decent looking as a comic style. All traditional inking, some minor Photoshop cleanup and speech bubbles.
However, I suppose I should explain why I need to know this. First off, no, this have absolutely nothing to do with DC. Its going to stay exactly the way it is. So dont worry about that.
However, seeing as schools starting soon and the only part of DC I can do there anymore is the sketchwork (which I dont want to get TOO far ahead in), Im thinking I might get a start on another comic Ive had in mind for awhile in my spare classtime (for theres always plenty of it :P). I mean, since theres no way in hell Id have time to do another comic in the same mostly-CG style I do this one (seriously, DCs pages take like, 6-10 hours a piece. And thats not counting the sketching.), if I do another one itll be in a style that I can do mostly traditionally and during school and whatnot. Mostly just to keep myself from being bored out of my ever-loving mind.
Of course, this is just a test page. I just grabbed that prologue resketch I did the other day and inked over it. Its mostly ball-point pen, with some other miscellaneous pens mixed in for the darker areas. In the long run Ill probably end up just doing the panel borders in Photoshop too, because obviously I still epic fail at doing them by hand. And in an actual comic Id have to make a point of making my backgrounds like, actually make sense. This one was scribbled and proper perspectives just not there. And Id probably spend more than five minutes cleaning it up.
SO. Like I said, I need some feedback on whether or not Id burn anybodys eyes out with a comic drawn in this kind of style. Sooo, opinions please?
PS. Yes, Im working on the next DC page too :P Update this weekend, promise.
Brill page- like the way you sketch - it'd be interesting to see your work - the stuff you *plan* on doing in school- I wish I could draw like you do- even in 'scribbles'! If you decide to post on SJ or on your DA - I'll follow it to see how your style develops and whatnot. XD
Edit: I came by earlier when you were doing the page re-design; and left the above comment; - Just popped in to see if you finished; and it looks awesome ~ Love the sketched Riza in the background!
Man... that's dediaction, how on earth are you able to keep up at this rate? I struggle with my comics and I barely do more than 3 hours a work per piece, updating once a week! All those shading techniques is really cool too, I really love how it's all done.
