I actually went out on a date last night with a guy, and our entire conversation basically weighted on this (the most intense conversation for a first date ever?). He's Japanese and has very Japanese storytelling sensibilities, while I studied Western storycrafting. It was interesting to see extremely different perspectives in storytelling, and to him, it's stupid how Western stories tend to reinf ...

Critique on my Comic - panling 9 Comic Creators 7/26/12 4:11pm

Am I the only one who isn't bothered by the lack of gutters? I personally like the left side better, it tells the story more efficiently because there are less panels. But it seems the majority wants some the spacing between panels. I suggest using the left's format, but with gutter space in between them.

It might be because my head's pounding and I just got home from work but... goddamn, internet arguments are annoying. Some people have major sticks up their asses. No seriously sir, you need to read some Scott McCloud. Argh.

Anime & Anatomy 25 Art Discussion 7/15/12 6:42am

With a trained eye, it's pretty obvious when you see an artist who stylizes without knowing the basics. CLAMP is actually one of those types. They understand appeal and are pretty great with compositions, but they really don't know their anatomy and their proportions (especially their later manga) are just awkwardly elongated. The best way to explain it is to just learn anatomy and draftsmanshi ...

Art Ready for a Comic? 5 Comic Creators 7/15/12 6:34am
Panic At The NuclearPlant
As everyone's saying, comics don't consist of just bust shots/full body shots of characters. Can you draw any pose? How about backgrounds? Can you draw characters interacting with backgrounds? Can you draw a full range of unique emotions for each of your characters? And can you do all this from any angle? I don't mean to scare you, but comics are perhaps one of the toughest storytelling mediums ...

I know you said no comments on the handwriting, but that really is the main thing that's keeping me from reading this. I don't think there's anything wrong with handwriting your text, it's an art form in itself and it can produce some amazing results. However, typography for comics is a beast in itself, and there's a certain method behind it. If you want suggestions on how to improve your handw ...

going to try to make a comic 5 Comic Creators 7/6/12 4:39am

Honestly, just jump into drawing/writing them and see how it goes for you. I learned way more about drawing comics from just doing it than all the books I've ever read combined. When you run into trouble over something, such as drawing subjects you're unfamiliar with, you'll find the resources to help you as you go along. Nonetheless, here's some good starting points. Understanding Comics and ...

Help on my manga! 7 Comic Creators 7/2/12 4:34am

Manga Studio isn't free, but it's not exactly expensive either (at least compared to Photoshop). You can get Manga Studio Debut for $50 (which has all your bare nuts and bolts), but I recommend Manga Studio EX over it since Debut only gives you a certain amount of layers. It's $300 but it's well worth it. If you're interested in doing tones/speedlines, EX blows Debut out of the water.

Tools are overrated. To make any kind of comic (manga or otherwise), all you really need is a pencil and paper, and probably a scanner and some kind of image editing software so you can get it online. Photoshop is the universally accepted program by all artists around the world, but Gimp is a pretty good (free) alternative. There are also programs like Manga Studio (which I use) that specialize in ...

Is this coherent? 3 Comic Creators 6/30/12 9:45pm
Tenko72
It's really unclear. A lot of it comes from the staging, poses, and just general drawings. Let me tell you exactly what was going on in my mind when reading this. Panel 1: Is this a cityscape? I think it's a cityscape, but they're all the same color. Is it at sunrise? Or is this a profile view of a deformed monster? Panel 2: Girl sipping tea. Straight forward enough. Panel 3: Some kind o ...

Am I late to the party? Oh well, I might as well throw my own two-cents, but as an advocate for ComicFury. As a comic host, CF offers free features just as good as SJ's premium-priced accounts. SJ's free accounts has a limit of 500 KB per page (which is unbelievably small) while CF gives an allowance of up to 3 MB, and it allows Flash page uploads at no additional cost. You can upload as many e ...

My friend's roommate has that on her wall. It's pretty hilarious, although I don't agree with all of it.
