Digital Comic Panel Layout

September 23, 2015

Comics

A while ago I tried reading digital comics on my 3.5 inch mobile phone and found the experience to be less than satisfactory.  Even Comixology’s Guided View technology did little to improve the experience. That got me thinking about designing a digital comic panel layout.  So what makes a good digital comic panel layout? I did a bit of surfing around and stumbled…

eComic Concept Art: Sylen Benevolen 2B

August 15, 2015

Comics, Digital Art

More eComic Concept Art.  I’m doing a full length concept of Sylen Benevolen now but I’m having a real battle with his legs.  I’ve redrawn them about 4 times, hence the time spent is now at 3 hours for this.

Project ADC-1: 14 August 2015

August 14, 2015

Comics

Project ADC-1 update.   After analyzing the project metrics, I’ve realised that as things stand, I will over-run by about a year!   Therefore, I have made a major project adjustment and cut down the scope of the story to just cover the first act.   After all this I’ll still miss my deadline by a couple of weeks so I’ll have to…

Project ADC-1: 30 July 2015

Comics

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…

July 26, 2015

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.

Project ADC-1: 20 July 2015

July 20, 2015

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…

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…

Project Code: ADC-1 + Digital Comics Workflow

July 8, 2015

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…
