How the comic is made

Postby Vanja » Thu Nov 25, 2010 7:31 pm



, having already read all the books available on anatomy and studied the EQ2 graphics to get the armour and weapons just right. Then I hire professional models and take photos of them in the poses needed for my strip, before sketching the strip, based on the photos, with a pencil on paper. Professionals use fancy super special blue pencils but since I spent all my monies on those models, I'm going with a regular cheap'n'gray 2b pencil. The result should end up looking something like this:

Image

and ask myself, "is this funny enough, or should I rewrite it before I start inking? Oops, I already started inking, didn't I. I really should water that bonsai, I wonder if it is still alive over there in the window." Then I remember that only 5 people read the comic and I'm not getting paid so it doesn't really matter what anyone thinks:

Image

, 115 minutes of which are actually spent checking if anything interesting has happened on facebook/twitter/various forums. The result is usually rather messy:

Image

, wishing I had one of those fancy blue pencils so I didn't have to, and place the strip in the scanner:

Image

because the scanner refuses to talk to my main computer anymore:

Image

(ArcSoft PhotoStudio 2000) from 1999 that came free with my scanner (I do have Photoshop, but for the mac, and my mac died years ago) to add colour or shades of gray to the strip, on separate layers:

Image

because it's quicker than picking all sorts of different colours:

Image

so I can be sloppy without it being too noticeable:

Image

, publish on website and spam forums and twitter:

Image

and wait for feedback ("I don't get it." "I miss Lunch, he hasn't been in the strip for ages." "When are you going to finish my sig?"):
