heavy cartoon lines kind of kill any chance of something feeling lit, maybe some thinner line variation on the lit edge of the character.

Also while I think comics illustrated to the above level would be so wonderful I could actually maybe get into the medium, I think there's a good reason why they aren't. That's a looot of work, but myself and others will certainly be cheering you on even if it's just a one or two page story. It would be delightful to know what your characters do for a living.

Zodar
02-03-2012, 05:27 PM
the line thing is very true! i did the linework before i started coloring it, i was planning on doing a flat 2-tone piece when i began. gonna use much thinner lines in the comic proper (in addition to drawing in a much larger resolution)

also: retouched the rocks n' spires in the first panel to look more like the ones from the '09 attempt.
http://i.imgur.com/qSqO0.png
thinking of starting over and limiting myself to 2-4 solid colors per panel. wanna avoid burning myself out on 1/5 of the page. it's a bad habit, i've got rough-draft layouts for future pages that i've spent hours on.

Kirin
02-10-2012, 11:02 AM
I wonder how weird it would look to have one full-color panel, followed by a few pages of four-color only? Allow yourself another painting every few pages. I dunno, might be too jarring, but maybe it would work. Published manga gets away with throwing in a few incongruous color pages whenever it happens to be the anthology's cover feature...

These were sitting in my sketchpad for about a month, and the first page was getting smudged into oblivion. I inked the ones that were scraggled beyond repair. Had to erase the names in the process, though.
DIRE RAT - RAT KING - BULLWARK - KATAMARTIN - GAZELE
CAVE APE - MANTICORE - TROLL - CATOBLEPAS
TATZELWURM - WARGI - BUNYIP - HENRY
DIRE BAT - BORE
SLOTH BEAR (AND CUB) - UMBERCAT - USALUNA - WOPLETINGER

Experimented with varying line width and shading in STUNG on the second page. Coincidentally, it's the only thing from that page that looked half-decent off the scanner bed. Losing my laptop (and fixing my scanner) has renewed my interest in traditional media!!

I've been drawing a lot more lately, but most of said art has no place on a family-friendly board. I'll see if I can dig up some more (worksafe) stuff later!!

Wolfgang
08-13-2012, 05:19 PM
Not a bad start. I don't know if you're doing this for something and are unwilling to do a redraw, but if I were doing it I'd break the page in half and make each half into its own separate page. The action in panels 7-10 seem a bit cramped. Panel 5 is a good tension panel, if you're making this for a webcomic, and breaking off from that point to a new page would let the artwork really breathe.

Since it seems like you're aiming for grandiose vistas, having a lot more negative space will help. Panels 6 and 9 suffer the most from feeling cramped. It might not be a bad idea to look up some images of cracked rock to get a better idea of how the cracks move across the surface when it breaks.

Zodar
08-13-2012, 05:33 PM
Future pages are gonna have fewer, larger panels, yeah. Maybe 5-6. I'm working with tiny tiny paper because I've got a tiny tiny scanner bed, so I gotta make those 8x10 inches siiiiing

Man, that's not even a thing. Use 11x17" paper and scan them as multiple parts. It's not the most fun thing to put them back together in PS but it looks so much better as a finished page and is easier to eventually format for print.

08-14-2012, 09:40 AM
S'alright, there's a nice art supply store downtown (which I need to visit-- these pigmas are already starting to dry out). Thanks for the offer, though!

Gonna heed Wolfgang's advice: draft the basic structure of the page on a sheet significantly larger than the scanner bed, then draw the panels on their own sheets and scan them in sections. It'll give me more space for ~sweepin visters~ and make the crosshatching look less ratty!

Kirin
08-14-2012, 10:13 AM
Giant Robot BUNNY! Cool. I like it, but a couple nitpicks:

I initially had trouble parsing the bottom of the bunny's head in panel 3. Maybe angle it down more?

I didn't even notice the gap between the diagonal panels 7/8 at first, making me think for some reason the rock column had eyes and was distressed about breaking. Didn't help that the protag's eyes in close-up look very different from at a distance (though I understand simplification is inevitable). Actually I'm still not sure what's going on with the extra bit beside one eye.

Everything else seemed pretty clear. I really like the opening panel!

That's a good solution, too - I did that for a comic book I made with a friend a few years back, except I drew the panels individually and imported them into a comic layout program. I would recommend at least trying out a full-page scan or two just to get the hang of how to do it, so you don't avoid making splash pages.

Things I really like: You're good at showing things like volume and depth, which are important - the art isn't flat. I also like the way you drew the dust cloud in the first panel (I might steal that sometime...).

Paul le Fou
08-21-2012, 07:41 AM
The best birthday card!

Maybe my eyes are just going bad in my old age, but my recommendation for Impakto page 1 would be to differentiate the pencil shading on textures a bit more. Almost everything is filled in with a very similar line density and it kind of bleeds together, especially in panels 3 and 4, makes it hard to pick out detail. It took me a few panels to realize that there was a rider on the rabbot - they'd just blended together at first, I thought he was an extension of Peanut itself.

But! I'm really intrigued already - a jumping riding rabbot, searching for something at the bottom of a really deep ravine, interesting design for the human(oid?) rider - it's a good cold open and leaves me looking for more.

Zodar
08-21-2012, 03:24 PM
A week of +90º heat, no AC and general laziness slowed me down a bit, but I'm gettin back on track. Here's the first panel of page 2:

http://i.imgur.com/LaZcG.jpg

I'm happy with the basic layout, but I think it came out too busy with the cliff walls, flailing rabbit and onomatopoeias. Gotta stop filling every inch of every panel and conquer my fear of negative space!!

I've also been eyeing Boulet's (http://english.bouletcorp.com/) art for references on how to hatch/crosshatch without overwhelming the frame, as well as this gorgeous lil' french copy of The Owl and the Pussycat with art by Barbara Cooney

Kirin
08-22-2012, 10:39 AM
Yeah, your rock textures are cool, but they do have a bit of a tendency to back you into a corner in terms of differentiating everything in a strictly B&W context. If you were doing color washes or something, you could totally get away with it.

I gotta say, though, I continue to adore your smoke and dust trail effects. Great sense of energy in these.

Lady
08-22-2012, 07:12 PM
Not only does the hatching on the cliff walls drown out the side panels, but the way the walls are shaped also works with panels to create a cool, but ultimately unhelpful vignette effect, which draws even more attention away from them and towards the center

Zodar
08-23-2012, 02:01 PM
And the rest of Page 2:
http://i.imgur.com/ItSDy.jpg

This sequence went out of my comfort zone a ways, and there's a lot about the last 3 panels that I'm not happy with-- inconsistent shading, unclear action, etc. Still, every page is a learning experience!

Gonna get some black paper and whet my xacto knife so I can do solid dark tones. I was hoping to do so for the background of the last panel, but it would have been a jarring transition from the rest of the page... so it just looks kinda empty.

Got so fucking exasperated trying to find the proportions that worked for this robot that I wound up tracing a piece of Street Fighter art. Feelin nasty for doing so, but at least I have a design that resembles what I was imagining on paper.

Turns out I was squishing the torso too much, and sticking too close to the megaman/gundam Huge Robot Leg Paradigm. The Impakto Mk.I is supposed to be a stocky brawler/grappler, and now it looks the part! Hoping to come up with a design that draws more from stag beetles/VW beetles before this guy appears in the comic proper.

Traumadore
08-27-2012, 10:33 AM
Love that guy, can't wait to see further iterations. I don't care about tracing, especially in a preliminary piece. Don't feel guilty about using outside resources to achieve what you imagine either. It's the mature approach. Expecting everything to spring from the imagination fully formed is not.

Zodar
08-27-2012, 12:27 PM
I've got no qualms using photos and such as references, I just felt a little off about using a heavily stylized piece by another artist. But hey, it helped me figure out what I was goin for!

PAGE 3
Each page is a learning experience! Trying out some grey-tone brushtip pens for shading, in lieu of constant hatching. There are still a few spots that look, well, spotty (definitely went overboard in the first panel), but all in all I'm excited to see what I can do with these. This is actually the first page that the scanner improved!

Traumadore
09-05-2012, 12:25 PM
Definitely an improvement over the hatching, it's way more legible and just nicer to look at. The background in the final panel is super. This is two pages, right? I tried to read it left to right at first and realized it didn't make sense.

The entire life cycle of SCOLIPENDRACH involves the consumption of (other people's) alcohol; from birth to death, it is in a state of constant inebriation. Larva grow in unattended bottles. Adults would be truly fearsome beasts, were they not so busy being three sheets to the wind. Their breath causes fruit to ferment, and their bite can induce acute alcohol poisoning.

Revisiting Impakto, still fiddling with its design. Things that need work:
-more beetle imagery!
-feet that look more solid, and in tune with the rest of the design's aesthetic!
-stronger-looking arms! Thicker upper arms, and forearms with more of a "piston" look, if that makes sense. This is a robot that punches and lifts.
-a longer torso, relative to the rest of the body! This is not a sleek Gundam dancing through the battlefield, this is a bulky and somewhat awkward machine with the build of a heavy weightlifter. The core should be as sturdy as a titanium barrel, and the back should prominently display a mechanical equivalent to the latissimus dorsi muscles (pistons??)
-on that note, the tubes and flexible bits on the previous design (over the shoulders, under the arms) gave the illusion of both functional machinery and musculature. Gotta bring those back.

Maybe more elephantine feet, kind of stocky and short. Beetles also have two hooks on each foot so maybe use that.

For more beetle imagery you can probably just adjust the placement of the eyes, the design of the mouth, and the ways the plates come together. Maybe the forearms have telescoping lames to follow any extending motion. Each lame can be barbed to match a beetle's lower leg.

I meant to comment the other day, that's a terrific design. Reminds me of Getter Robo. Could use a little more of the secondary colors to break up the red.

Thanks for the feedback! Both Getter Robo and Tetsujin were big inspirations for this design.

http://i.imgur.com/UjF4fo9.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/C2D1BY4.png

After taking another look at the original design, I decided to redraw it fresh to see what "worked" about it. Aside from a few minor tweaks, I'm pretty satisfied with that first basic design, even if it's like six months old. It also has those poppin secondary colors the redesign lacked, as Excitemike noticed.

Most of the new stuff came in after I drew the rear view, and redrew the front view to match it. The beetle-shell and segmented "abdomen" on the rear skirt were a stroke of inspiration.

Beetle-like limbs with claws and bristles are a good suggestion, but I think they're at odds with the stockier, elephantine lumbs I... also wanted. Maybe I'll find a compromise at some point!

In the process, I was also able to figure out the big guy's proportions! From the shoulders down, he's built like a stack of three 4x3 boxes-- each being 4 heads across and 3 heads high. That is admittedly a small-ass head, but it seems appropriate for a giant robot.

At 52 meters in height, the BFM-00X Flatwald looms over the battlefield like a grim lighthouse. The swivelling cannons around its waist lay waste to ground-based enemies in all directions, and the twin particle rays in its head can down an airship in a single shot.
Its cylindrical body houses a tremendous mass repulsor, lifting it several meters above the ground and deflecting all but the mightiest enemy fire. To travel long distances, it unfurls its diaphonous "wings" and sails on Moonland's electromagnetic wind. Because of its low maneuverability, it spends most of a given battle anchored in one place.

Black Flag has only unearthed one of these ancient warmachines, but they intend to mass-produce the design. Once they do so, some believe that they will put an end to Impakto in no time.

WULFRAU HEINRALL, one of Black Flag’s most infamous ace pilots. The daughter of a legendary war hero, she joined Black Flag and rapidly ascended through its ranks after her father went missing in action.

She fights with speed and aggression that borders on suicidal recklessness. She lost her nose during a duel at military academy, trading it for her opponent’s life. As a pilot, she gravitates towards the few machines that can keep up with her, such as the glass-cannon Chupacabra.

She seeks a machine that can withstand the violent electromagnetic storms of Moonland, where her father disappeared all those years ago. When the Impakto demonstrates this ability, Wulfrau relentlessly pursues Jammy’s crew to claim the machine for herself.

The BFM-001 Bigfoot is a holdover from a bygone era. Predating the "cerebellum" technology that maintains a mech's balance and automates complex actions, the Bigfoot's head instead houses a second cockpit, where a human pilot is responsible for filling the same role.

Piloting this machine demands patience, cooperation, and mastery of an insanely complex control scheme. While it is a liability in novice hands, the Bigfoot becomes a formidable fighter when helmed by two experienced pilots. For this reason, Black Flag still keeps several of these machines in commission, as the rest of the world moves on to more intuitive (and much more expensive) weapons.

Hot dang, Zodar! This latest page is wonderful! Lovely colours, and the colossus-inside-a-face looks SWEET. I love it.

Also I need a little input here: Tryin to come up with a good in-universe term for "bigass robot." Colossus, despite having that nice classical mythology connection, doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. I was thinking "titan," but that seems too grand. "Giant" can be ascribed to too many things, "mech" is a fan-word and genre signifier, and "robot" doesn't have the connotations of size. This is difficult!

Just make up something crazy like "Megadeus" or "Guymelef."

I might have to think about this some more.

The best alternate to those I could find was golem.

The best alternate to those I could find was golem.I thought of that but rejected it for some reason. I was also thinking it needed a modifier something like "giga golem". (I like alliteration.)

I kind of like "Magnus". Implies BOTH "Something large and mechanical" and "something totally badass"

Golem is actually surprisingly perfect, not sure why it never came to mind. Thanks cort! And thanks for all the other suggestions, all the rest of y'all.

I actually really like Colossus or Titan. It might seem grandiose, but we're talking unstoppable war machines here, giant towers of metal and destruction bad enough to give veterans flashbacks at their very name. If it's apocalyptic, it's not too grand.

Also, it seems to fit the comic so far, which is less straightforward sterile Machine Parts Sci-Fi and a little more stylized, and whimsical visually if not also in tone.

Golem doesn't seem quiiiiiiite right to me because of the presence of a pilot. When I think golem I think of something animated and moving independently. But that could just be a minor nitpick.

Other possible ideas: Tower, Century (after the military unit), Stomper/Clomper (more like a soldier's slang word for it)

PAGE 7

Unlike Loretta, Marlon calls the doctor by his formal title because he doesn’t trust the guy. The doctor returns the favor.

Also I decided to go with "titan" because not only is it the most aurally pleasing, it also takes up the least real estate in a word bubble

In my mind, that little lock of hair is prehensile and twitching with excitement, like a cat's tail.

It would be mad gross if there were blood vessels and nerves in there. That tuft of hair is moved by emotions, or sheer force of will.

I wish they would make a model kit of the Den'an Zon. Or any of the mecha from F91, for that matter. They're visually noisy, but in an appealing, very 80s way.

Despite its relatively small size and weight, the Volador is incapable of true flight; instead, it glides about a dozen meters above the ground at high speeds. It's not much of a fighter, so it's mainly used for reconnaissance.

Danke! The idea is that the center of the "head" has cameras aiming in every direction, so the pilot has full panoramic vision.
