What type of software do u do ur comics on... or ur set up. Want to try myself but idk where to begin .-.
THIS is my setup for comics:
My general process for comics is:
- Artwork in Sketchbook Pro on my iPad (As you can see, I do one panel at a time, rather than doing a full comic page on one canvas.)
- Edits to color and composition in Photoshop on my laptop (Sketchbook Pro is really good for drawing but has limited color settings/cropping options)
- Assemble the comic in InDesign
- Build speech bubbles in Illustrator
So a page like this is a combo of four separate programs across two devices:
But this is just MY process. I use Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign because I’m a full time graphic designer and the investment in an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription is justified because I use multiple Adobe programs all day every day anyway and I can write the cost off as a work expense!
IF YOU’RE JUST EXPERIMENTING WITH DIGITAL COMICS, A GOOD DRAWING SOFTWARE AND A DEPENDABLE TABLET IS ALL YOU NEED!
Sketchbook Pro or GIMP or Photoshop, whatever! Photoshop is probably the most powerful, and I love it to death, but if you already have, say, and iPad, Sketchbook Pro is super affordable and absolutely wonderful!
