Man, I am on a role

ok here first more of the same. more characters to add to the wonderland archive. (i really need to try and write this thing) here is the Mad Hatter and March hare...its a bit complicated but makes sense in context of the story

Another tentative design for another tentative series. It’s a contemporary version of the ledged ‘journey to the west’. Ladies and gentlemen, the monkey king; and arrogant ass hole if ever there was one.

Image

Finally

THEY KILLED BART ALLEN
YOU BASTERDS

Why why why…he was like the coolest superhero ever.
anywho, my ode to him

You know if you got a good story line going and learned to color well (or got some one to color) i think you could maybe have a shot at getting your comic up top.

For me personaly it wouldn't even need to be colored if it was darker and a decent plot i would watch like a stalker! O_O Its you attention to detail that won me like the way you did the first pannels edges and the nice way the comic flows true its more arty than most comics i like it. =3

Between me and my friends, Dirt means that something ridiculously awesome.
Old as Dirt would mean that it's new, because the Dirt saying is something new xD

Anyways, this drawing is indeed Dirty. I love the coloring.

So first of all, hi snafu,
I'm new here, been reading the comics for a while, and I've just recently made it into the forums. I hope I feel welcomed here. Anyways to the problem I've read a little about.


So I see Gigi needs some help with Inking apparently. I'm no expert at it but I do know a little bit. Most of what I learned was from a web comic artist in school for animation. He made some videos showing his drawing process.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KEGvrsT ... annel_page

He doesn't start inking until the 2 minute mark so be aware of that. Now its not a full tutorial. Hell, you can't even call it a tutorial. For the first 2 minutes he's basically drawing and rambling. But he does make some fine points about what you should and shouldn't do when inking. As for the pen he's using it would be a micron 005 pen which is this right here.

http://www.jetpens.com/product_info.php ... ts_id/2042

Hope this helps at least a little.

Thank you BlackRiver for your advice! The truth is, I DO have such a pen…the problem I find isn’t so much the pen as it is the paper. Until I start making money in ether illustration or my art at large, I cant afford to do them on anything but computer paper (and the quality is icky icky icky). Thus I am reduced to digitally inking (which is also icky icky for me)

Anywho, here is a WIP I thought I would through up for fun. It’s another zutara (I DON’T HAVE A PROBLUM) so tell me what you think thus far.

Now these are two more quick sketches I plan on developing based on the BRILLIANT Disney cross over work of xNightshadex. If you havent seen them…you must rectify that emedeatly!!!
