Lol Comic

Lol comic.

Same as before, no real story, I just drew a typical everyday situation so that I could test some stuff. Need to work out something for speech bubbles, the ovals are easy but seems like anything hand-drawn is going to look odd. Not sure about the fonts I chose too...

Seems I'm really not good at a) guys, b) hands, c) speech bubbles, so from now on my comics will be about mute girls wearing mittens. Really though, even just from these 2 tests, while I can make it look passable it feels like I have a ways to go to have the artistic range to do a comic...

Random panels

I've tried comics once or twice, but I always found it pretty hard to lay out what I was trying to show, so I thought I'd get some practice.

I need to pay more attention when reading comics, since I found there were a bunch of expressions I couldn't remember well enough to draw (should I be inventing expressions myself then?). Also need to pay more attention to clothes and haircuts, almost everyone is wearing "acme t-shirts". Didn't take too long though. Might look decent enough for a lazy comic if I didn't totally skip blocking it out.

There's no rhyme or reason to these by the way, I just drew some boxes and plucked random things out of the air to fill them with. But why not make up your own story? (since you must have lots of free time to bother reading this far~)

Usa Miko Reimu (v. yadda yadda)

Finally done. Got sick of getting interrupted (by the need to sleep and laziness and such things) while doing this.

I based my colours for this on some reference images, which broke a bunch of what I considered to be "rules" for choosing colours. For a while I was thinking "lol this totally won't work", but it does, so it just goes to show what I know about colour theory.

Pretty happy with the lineart and skin shading. The hair is ok for the time involved in doing it, but I haven't any idea how to improve on it :(

Transformers Glyph

Ok, this is a weird one. It's based on a Convention Exclusive Toy. Not sure who created this character, but this is my version of her.


I can't stop drawing Transformers. I even put in the logo to make it look official.

Are zombies morning people?

For that matter what would a mummy usually eat for breakfast anyways...
