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 – I’ve not been drinking).
In order to give myself a bit of structure as I create my digital comics, I have put together a little Digital Comics Workflow. It’s always good to have a defined process – whether you follow it or not is another matter.
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, add a border and other embellishments.
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.
