We droppin' like a comet and this Vulcan tried to Spock it/These Martians tried to do it, but knew they couldn't cop it



Hey all, just starting to think about comics as a more serious thing than as just something to doodle in my sketchbook. Here's a one pager that I've been working on:



Let me know what you think!

Did I just say that out loud~~?!!!


I've decided that the problem in between myself and cranking out more pages of my webcomic was how onerous and tedious I've always found digital coloring to be.

So! To that end, I've invested in some copic-like markers and begun practicing coloring stuff before embarking on doing an actual full-color page.

Here's the results.






Trip report - I'm really enjoying it so far. Honestly, coloring with markers on actual physical paper has been what I needed to rekindle my 'drawing spark' so to speak, so I'm eager to see how this ends up looking when I attempt to color a full comic page. It's a bit of a learning curve, though, because the markers seem to smudge the ink.

Woo-oo!





I'm glad you found something that works! Doing a different format or playing around with a different medium than you're used to can really help jumpstart the old art muscles, for sure.

Are you doing the inking digitally, or doing it by hand? If the latter, you can probably invest in some inks that are more insoluble.

By hand! I've been just using regular india ink, but that's a great suggestion. I hadn't even thought of that ink could be more insoluble.

nice B)

coloring traditionally is almost meditatively pleasing to me, it definitely has its drawbacks (like the difficulty with doing anything non-additive) but I find the variety of sensory feedback and lack of screen to be very enjoyable

That feeling when he opens
the door for you


Coloring by hand will also give your webcomic a very unique look that will help it stand apart from other digital based comics, so I wholly support this endeavor! Reminds me of the Kick-rear end comic.
