Project ADC-1 update.  Since the last project update I’ve been switching between different tasks on my Digital Comics Workflow: Idea Brainstorming:  – Character Design:  Partially filled in a character profile for all of my characters – there are 7 so far. High Level Plot:  – Script:  Got to page 4 (out of 20) of my first draft. Concept Art:  Completed a head…

I’ve just added a Character Profile Template page in the Writing section.  I designed this template specifically for use with comics so it has a number of visual elements.  If you find this useful, please feel free to copy and paste 🙂

Comics

The research I have done to date on creating and self publishing digital comics (specifically eComics) has led me to put together a Digital Comics Workflow which I have defined here.  I will keep this workflow updated to reflect my latest learnings as I stumble along the way.

Fictional World Map V3.4

July 26, 2015

Digital Art

I’ve done some more work on this map: Added a Neon Glow around some of the continent names to improve readability. Added a grid. Added a scale. Added a border. Added the world name: Undomea. This is the world that my first digital comic (eComic) will be set in.  And yes, the oceans are going to be purple!

OK here’s a character concept sketch of the main protagonist in my digital comic.  Using a reference photo, I worked in Manga Studio 5 with a Wacom graphics tablet.  This represents around 40 minutes of sketching for me.

Comics

I’ve been character designing and expanding on my digital comic plot which currently consists of a text file of 455 words.  Originally I’d estimated 1 hour for plotting, I’ve spent 6 hours on it already but I reckon I’m about done with the high level plotting now. One thing that I found really helpful during structuring my plot was Tim Stout’s article on Blake…

I’ve been fleshing out my fictional world map a little bit more.  It now has continent names, a legend and depicts two of the locations for my ADC-1 project (Raneon and Suborea).
