So, I got my thesis done, updated the Comic Project Management Tools, and had a lot of time left till I got my thesis results(I did not pass >_> sadly). One thing that was sort of bugging me was that after all the work I did on the CPMT, there just wasn’t much movement happening in Peruse, the KDE comic book reader that can read comic books with ACBF files and make use of the extra functionality.
The middle one being a watercoloury style(probably needs better colour picking to be really useful)
The last being traditional ink-then-colour, softshading style, and the first being a variation where I painted the subject first, and then added the lines. Painting is a little more comfortable for me regarding details like hair and folds(which are nice to sculpt this way), so it’s a little more natural to me to try this manner.
I’ve been practicing brush inking, and I have the feeling I’m getting somewhere. I got some nice winsor and newton brushes and I’m still happily experimenting with them. I also made a test page for Streets of Ganjet, to see if brush inked characters on a penned background, coloured in, would look good.
Unforetunatly the page ended up a bit skewed and I think I’ll have to become good friends with my mirror once I start doing future pages.
I disliked how normal comic formats are one page a load, so this one loads up all tiny pages and then you can flick through them. The comic itself is Axel/Saïx slash, hence why I also made a seperate tag to prevent it from showing up on my rss-feed.(I don’t want anyone who isn’t looking for it to see this)
