Project ADC-1: 14 July 2015

July 14, 2015

Comics

I’m still in the early stages of my digital comic project and I’ve already had to lower my sites from making a 30 page comic to a 20 page one.  Timescale is the overriding factor here. Most of the work has been done inside my head so far: Idea Brainstorming in my car to and from work. Drawing up a…

Just Bought Manga Studio 5!

July 12, 2015

Digital Art

For a while now I’ve been aware of Manga Studio – a digital art package that seemed to be more geared towards comics creation than other art packages.  I’d even made a mental note to download the trial version and give it a go.  However the other day, a friend of mine told me that it was currently on sale with…

Comics

I’m a great one for coming up with ideas but then never finishing them.  So I’m throwing down the gauntlet to myself this year *KA-TUK* (that’s what a gauntlet throwdown sounds like) with my so called Project Code: ADC-1. Note: ADC stands for Artloader Digital Comic – my attempt to sound mysterious (I’m a bit nutty – what can I say?  And no…

Fictional World Map V3

July 7, 2015

Digital Art

I’ve been going round in circles with my fictional world map and in the end have decided to simplify a little.  Bump mapping wasn’t really in tune with the feel I wanted so I took that off, added some contour type areas and some text.  I don’t think the text is quite right so I will tweak that a bit,…

Comics

Tonight I’ve just published a page listing the digital comics tools that I’ve stumbled upon.  This list covers the whole process from creating digital comics to viewing them and finally selling them online.  I aim to keep this updated as I discover more.
