WHY DOES THIS COMIC GO FROM BLACK AND WHITE, TO GRAY SCALE, AND TO COLOR?
I was trying to get the hang of Photoshop and for some of the comics I was trying to do different things. For the last year I’ve been working on trying to change all of the pages to color. This will take some time, so until all the comics are re-done in color, they are going to be the same as they are now.
WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON IN THIS COMIC?
For a good while, I was planning on introducing the characters first, then insert a story line. While this is nice, it isn’t that efficient as a storyline. Basically, the comic, leading till the end of Issue 1, is about the two (current) main characters, and with a little hint of what is to come, and what has happened.
With the end of Issue 2, the storyline is getting more intense by the minute.
YOUR ART IS F**KING TERRIBLE!
If there is one thing, maybe this isn’t true for everyone, but we as artists will always be like “My art sucks”. I think in more ways than one, we don’t want to become too proud or over proud and be turned away because we’re asses. Also, I look at say…a comic I like and think “thats awesome!”, the artist may look at it and see all the places he messed up, or what not. What I’m getting at is, yeah, I know my comic isn’t great, it isn’t QC or MegaTokyo, or even XKCD or Dominic Deegan (google it!), but why do we continue? It is because we usually know where all those flaws are and how to SOLVE them, look at our pieces and say “okay, I screwed that up, but I know what to do to fix it next time.” We continue because we love our own art, even if others do not, and we would love to share our art, with the world, sometimes. Forgive my crappy art, but I’m at least doing what I love! In the great words of Rage Against the Machine:
“At least I’m F**king trying, What the f**k have you done?”
IS THIS COMIC PLANNED OR ARE YOU JUST PULLING WHATEVER USEFUL SH!T COMES OUT YOUR @55?
I tend to retcon on some things (yes, we may have seen the last of Enenco, who is now missing from future pages entirely), but I have both issue 3 and 4 written out. I am currently scripting Issue 3; yes there is a difference when I say “written” and “scripted”. Written is more or less an outline of EVERYTHING that happens, and Scripted means I know what happens, page to page, panel to panel. From time to time I’ll have a better idea and edit it in, or what not, but for the most part, my comic is prepared at the least a page ahead, and right now I am about ten pages ahead. By the end of Issue 3 I should be ahead by 2 or 3 Issues.
These are all the questions I can think of at the moment, but if you ask a new one and email it to me, I’d be more than happy to post it here, if it’s a legit question.
I have a FormSpring page, so feel free to ask any questions there, and I’ll do my best to answer them:
