this is really how my comic sketches work

HEY HAVE A MIC DOODLE SPAM FROM TWITTER THAT I FORGOT TO POST!

1- Just wanted to draw my fav boy with his hair down, it was alil experimental because I dont really know how his hair works and just fucked around until it looked half decent~

2- A version of him w/o glasses just for funsies.

3- Chibi Erasermic smooches before they have to go to work

4- MidMic doodle comic. Aizawa isn’t the only one who gets him. I hc that Mic lets his facial hair grow when he is not doing so well and Midnight knows this. (This can be either platonic or romantic, I like both so…)

5- Erasermic filled sketchbook page, how Mic and Aizawa  went from rivals who hate eachother for pety reasons to best friends. 

6- Another Erasermic filled sketchbook page, Platonic gifts that mean the world.

Hey there! Just wanted to ask,How do you polish your skills at drawing? And what inspired you to draw? Because your arts are really amazing!! Love to hear about your opinion and some advice for the arts. (>∆<)//

I’ve always enjoyed drawing comics which forces you to draw in various poses and angles. Making daily sketches, studying from references, and challenging myself by drawing what I enjoy, I improved significantly in one year.

Find what you love and keep drawing! As boring as this advice sounds, it’s the best way to improve from my experience. XD

SKETCH COLLAGE, NOT A PAGE~

Fiiiinally working on the second part of my AU comic~ sketches and dialog all done, but I don’t know how long the 2nd pass at the art will take so here’s various shots of the 4 new champions to prove it exists~ This group is so fun to draw, especially since they’re all so different… except it’s really hard to do group shots when Riju’s like less than half the other’s height…

It’ll be another 8 pages. And I have more planned out after that if I ever get around to it~

I guess this is happening now, o jeez! 

Okay, so, if you’ve seen my latest art piece (the one I am now using as front cover for my upcoming comic EERIE), you’ll probably know that my idea of Anti is a little bit weird, haha. So weird, in fact, that when I told my friends about it, they bEGGED ME to make a comic about it. So - that’s what I’ll be working on from now on! :DD 

I’m super excited, haua! The comic will, obviously, feature Jack/ Anti and Wiishu! I’m still trying to figure out how exactly I want them to look like, but I think I have a neat lil’ idea, haha. I’m really hoping I’ll do ‘em justice! 

-BUTCHA! I came up with an Art Contest that will allow seven people to have their characters appear in the comic! :0

I am currently writing everything down and sketching out ideas that I have, which is why I’m starting this rather early! I’ll have to have scenes open for each and every character to appear for at least one or two whole pages! Some might even become bigger characters! I will talk to the winner about that one later on. :D

Every entry will be featured in a video, given credit and link to the source, on the channel, of course! 

You can send me entries on Twitter (@page250jane), tumblr (right here), via video on YouTube (Page250 Jane) and instagram (@page250jane)! Traditional and digital is both totally cool! C:

Have fun creating, guys! My asks/ dm’s are always open if you have any questions! 

(holy schittletitties do i feel anxious about this one, haha)

((Imma need to get myself ice coffee now))

All of these Metal Gear comic covers, due to recent requests, can officially be purchased as posters!  So if you’re interested, the information on how to go about purchasing one can be found right at the bottom of this post.  More comic covers are on the way, however I’m gonna be without internet until July 8th so yeah…. it’ll be a little while.  In the mean time I’ve set some sketches and stuff to upload during my absence (I’m down, but not out!)  Also, wanted to say thank you!  Just reached 200 followers today!  I’m really happy you all seem to be enjoying the work as much as I enjoy making it.

Now, about those posters.  If you are interested in purchasing one, or any, just go ahead and message me on my tumblr to let me know, and then you can go ahead and send the money to my PayPal (the email is cleanlined@hotmail.com).  The price of one full size poster is $30, and will be approximately 18"x24" in size, there may be white borders due to this, if you should have any special sizes in mind you can just let me know and I’d be happy to look into it.  However, like I said earlier in this post, I’ll have to wait until July 8th to officially process any requests.  I’m sorry for the delay there.

Anyhow, thank you again!

Hello! I wanted to ask how you sketch your comics. I have alot of trouble getting the story on paper, while I don't have this with normal illustration. Do you recommend doing this traditional or digital? And do you have a few tips for me? Love your work and planning to buy your comic very soon!

I don’t know if digital vs traditional really matters. I prefer traditional since the piles of paper littering the floor of my tiny attic space fills me with a vague sense of accomplishment. Digital makes it easier to edit and re-organize your work but for me there’s always the danger of succumbing to my own perfectionism, working traditionally provides you with all sorts of limitations and excuses which I find liberating in a way but again, this is a matter of taste/self discipline.

Since my background is in student animation/storyboarding/textbook margin doodling I’m still new to the thumbnail > sketch > finished product sort of workflow and I might not be the best person to ask. At the moment it goes something like: I start out with a written screenplay/outline, I thumbnail the pages (for Stages of Rot i thumbnail:d them in sets of two, since that’s how they appear in a book, for the project I’m working on rn I do them in sets of three which seems like a reasonable weekly amount for a webcomic and I suppose they’ll be red from the top down, sort of, webtoon style?), then I do a too-detailed sketch version of the page (It’s like a finished drawing but I’m allowed to use the eraser) and I clean it up on a separate paper using a light table with some further adjustments done in Photoshop before coloring.

For the ‘getting the story on paper’ part, I think a good way to start is choosing a format in terms of size/number/structure of the panels (4 square panels each 7x7 cm, or pages split horizontally in 2-3 for a cinematic format, or think ‘Tintin’ where the layout is somewhat variable within a set of rules) and work within that, once you’ve set some limits to what you can do layout-wise it allows you to focus 100 percent on the events/characters on the page. ie don’t feel like you have to go full Shoujo straight off the bat or do any of that ‘RAW’ formalist stuff

WIP for a new Jaybird piece! This is the version where Jay wears a black leather jacket over a white shirt and a red mask. Not sure from which series of the comic. Haven’t really read all of them. 


Idk if it’s just me or that this particular version of Jason as I mentioned above has got this odd James Dean vibe going on. That’s what made me play around with sepia tones. Let’s just wait and see how everything will turn out!

PS: if you wish to re - upload my works instead of reblogging it from it’s original source, please do tell me. Not that I’m mad or anything. As long you’re not secretly profiting from it then we’re cool.

anonymous asked:

So I'm going to try and commit to making a comic... any tips? I have a short attention span so making comics are quite difficult but I love making them.

Seeing you mentioned “have a short attention span” so here is some of my not-really-professional advices for you welp, hope they can help.

1) Grow a habit for marking down your ideas for plots/characters/even drafts for the comic! Just mark them down in a notebook/sketchbook/even your own phone. You can use your own spare time aka when you have nothing particular to do for doing this (e.g. wait for bus,breaks from lessons/work or during lessons because I am a irresponsible student lmao don’t follow me) As I am slowly starting on my own OC comic (it is a secret shhhhh) I started sketched down drafts for how my comic goes on, which just looks like this lmao:

(As far as you can understand the contents yourself, it is ok for your stuffs to be messy *Audible wink*)
This is not only for using time more efficiently in editing your ideas, also saving your energy when you start actually drawing stuffs out.

2) While you are drawing your comic, look out for whether yourself being distracted to doing other stuffs. If you find yourself have been sneaking out for shitposting on Tumblr/looking unrelated stuffs on other websites, drive yourself back into your drawing immediately, internet is always powerful enough to suck away your time. Of course you are allowed to take breaks, maybe set up several 10~15 minutes breaks for you to relax, let your eyes and hands and brain to rest is important. But above all, don’t force your body to do things out of your limit. It is ok to take things slowly, you draw for fun, if forced, nothing will be fun anymore.

3) Make sure you have enough energy when drawing. Drawing under a tired situation will never make you work be good as your brain can’t even work firmly. If you still want to finish another page first while it is already midnight, go sleep first. There is no time limit for your comics, you health is always on top of that. Moreover, sufficient sleep can gain you more attention span as well!

4) If your aim is to make a GOOD comic, don’t hesitate to look up tutorials and reference! There are already so many good teaching references from how to plan comic frames to basic anatomy, learning is forever good.

This post has talked about how to do well time management in a really clear way, way better than my clumsy words haha. I hope all these helps! 

datboifronk  asked:

Hey, first off I want to say that I honestly love your art so much I'm not even beating around the bush with that statement it's too beautiful. I was just wondering how long things usually take you to draw or paint something and if you need to have breaks occasionally?

Thank you so much!! This made my day! 💕

How long something takes me depends on the complexity of the piece. And I do take frequent breaks! I’ve sustained a lot of severe injuries to my wrist from not taking breaks. The permanent damage that caused is something I deal with daily. At the very least, you should be sitting back and stretching your tendons every 20 minutes. Nothing is worth crippling yourself over.

^ sketches usually take me ~2 hours, again depending on complexity.

^ Loose digital/traditional sketches, around 3 hours.

^ full traditional/digital paintings, around 5-7 hours. Depends on how much time I spend rendering details.

^ full comic pages take me the longest, 10 hours minimum per page.

I devote a lot of time to my art. Hours a day, depending on my work schedule. I frequently experiment, do studies, try new subjects. I’m really happy to have that drive and discipline ingrained in me so that it doesn’t cause me to burnout. 

ok I had to take a little break from my work cause I need my Ratio-frans for my soul , even if its the most sketch quick ~ whatever I don’t care I love them and I miss them ;ם;  and I actually really love how it came out! ;ם;  and maybe ill color it when I have life again! but no when ill have life again I’m gonna keep working on the actual comics~

ok ill be back to my factory hive ~ hope you like my babies <3

Doodles~

So I was browsing through my files and found some random sketches I forgot about, so I figured I might as well just post them before they get lost again.  Most of these resulted from awesome discussions in the MahouYome Skype chat group. ;D

I know it doesn’t look that great but to be honest, I’ve never been good at drawing heights and I’m still kinda… changing my OCs and moulding my story to how I want it. I still need to work on writing for my OCs too. BUT these are their heights all put together. For everyone. I’m really upset with how I drew Silence and Maggie (I’m not used to drawing girls) but I’m gonna practice so I can fix this…

anonymous asked:

Absolutely loving the conflict comic. Lost count of how many times I've read it but it's usually once when i wake up, once more before i go to work, once when i'm on break,pnce when i get back from work and then another two times before bed. I love it! It is AMAZING!!

Awe, it’s honoring, and weird to think that someone could like my silly sketches so much? Thank you for the support though! I really appreciate it! 

lvl80catlady  asked:

How do you keep up with it all? Like you've got a ton of rewards for Patreon and you have a fantastically made comic and I can hardly handle the three sketches I have for Patreon and do anything of notice. Either way I really admire that and love your art to death

this is my full time job! my comic, my patreon, my store, the conventions devin and i attend – this is what i do for a living and half of what she does (though soon she’ll be working full time with me). it’s a lot of work and takes a lot of time! 

i typically try to have most of my patreon rewards finished the month before so if everything turns to chaos i have a buffer.

st64rfox  asked:

I just wanted to say I absolutely love your art!! I love your style and concepts and you've become a big inspiration for me because I'm trying to become more of a serious artist. I can't wait to see your comic one day and I would definitely buy it if you sold it! And I was also wondering what is the best way to support you as an artist, since your work means a lot to me? I don't want to just appreciate it without giving back

oh thank you so much!! i’m happy that i can inspire others with my work. good luck on your own personal art journey btw!

thanks for your kind thoughts too, honestly I’ve been considering a patreon campaign for a while now but i really wasn’t sure how that was going to work before i started my personal comic project? since it wouldn’t be as easily broken down into funding per page or anything…eh i don’t know haha. i’m also a little too busy right now with freelance work and other books to be offering anything very interesting in terms of sketches or monthly art collections or anything. if anyone has any suggestions on what they’d like to see from me, please let me know! perhaps in the future i’ll figure that all out, when i’m done with some of my current projects.

for now though i really appreciate all the support people have given me already by sharing my work around and sending me nice messages! it means a lot to me and i hope i’ll continue to make things that you’ll like in the future ♡

anonymous asked:

Hey, how long did it take to really start making comics? Also I love your work, keep it up dude!

Like seriously sketch books from when I was 8 exist that have comics I drew in them. One day I’ll find them and share them with the world. But I didn’t really start getting serious about making comics until hmmm… 3 years ago? I did a couple of webcomics off and on through high school and the first part of college, but ended up abandoning them when I got bored. Then I had some great teachers who REALLY revved up my love for sequential story telling and decided to pursue them as a big part of my career after that.

Announcement regarding Patreon Tier adjustments for October, 2017

So I made an announcement last night on Patreon regarding some changes I hope to make starting NOT THIS MONTH, but next month. I’ve copied the message below to those considering becoming patrons. LONG, so beneath a cut but IMPORTANT so please read if it’s relevant to you.

Keep reading

Hey guys!

As you may already know, I’m currently working on a webcomic I’m planning to start posting in the fall. I’ve been outlining and creating characters and writing and sketching like crazy, and I’m really excited to share my work with you all.

I don’t want to share too much, but I would like a bit of help from you guys on this -

I need retail horror stories. 

I haven’t worked in retail much, so I have tragically few of my own, but if you have a retail horror story you’d like turned into a ridiculous comic interlude, please submit, ask, or message it to me, or send me an email at thatsnarkydragon@gmail.com. Unless you’d like to be anonymous, please also tell me how you’d like to be credited. 

Modern Fantasies will be coming in the fall!

Thanks~
