If you’re reading this I finished inking and coloring my comic and I have it printed and up for sale at my Etsy store!
Here are a bunch of last bit inking process stuff that I did for my spoiler pages.
In general, I worked on these pages out of order, mainly knocking out the art I felt wpuld be easiest to complete as I went. I thunk it results i. A wildly inconsistent look in a few ways, Ive gotten feedback and comments on the final comic that the characters get off-model and change proportions often. I gotta work on that nore.
I was fretting the last pages as they were the larger splash pages, but it went easier than I thought. I don’t draw birds often, so I’m not happy with how the pigeons looked for this final page.
I was a bit at a loss at how to render a shiny car in ink, I think I should’ve left it alone since I colored it as a white car in the end.
I’m a bit of a jerk taking up a whole library table with my pages. I’ve never gotten complaints so I think it’s fine. The library is pretty much my office, after I drop my brother of at his part time job, I save gas by hanging in the library near where he works. I feel more comfortable working on art in a library than sitting in some coffee shop, plus I can find books that I’m intrested in buying later.
A bit of flat coloring work on Page 6. I’ve never felt comfortable about coloring my art but since I felt I needed to prove to myself that I can finish a comic I push through. The comic works more with the color since the joke is mostly a visual trope in media.
Again, I regret inking the car with so much black since I ended up coloring the car white. I mostly chose white because the toy car I have for a model is white and I save myself the trouble of deciding colors.
Page 5 was worked on after six. I salvaged my colors for mom from an older drawing I did a while ago.
I did a bit of looking at sunsets images and their colors, so I can establish that it’s the afternoon time, again taking advantage of coloring being a good storytelling tool even if I feel I suck at using it.
I stopped trying force myself to post art every day to feed some stupid algorithm that may or may not reward the “perfect attendance” or chasing the approval of every person I meet for some dumb hunger for attention for my art. It harbors my jealousy, frustration, and self-hatred to unhealthy means and I have to put it to myself to not be like that.
