    you work looks great but if i can offer a word of constructive criticism your word balloons could use some adjustments.

    This is for users of Illustrator, but the concepts of space between the balloon, the lettering, where to put the stems is all the same.

    Constructive criticism is always welcome, thanks.
    The balloons don't always work out as I'd like, I must admit. At he moment I use PowerPoint to trim the pictures and add the dialogue, because it's quick and easy.
    Thanks for the link. In the strip I'm doing at the moment, I'll give a bit more time to the balloons, although PowerPoint isn't ideally suited to the purpose.

    Fly posting has been illegal? Since when!!??

  • SteveM17SteveM17 Posts: 500
    edited December 1969

    As far as I know fly-posting is illegal if you do it on someone else's property without permission. Well, that's what it said on the interweb, so it must be true!
    And here's another comic:

    Nice to see your work progressing.

    If I may make a couple of constructive comments:


    1. Consider rendering out the individual elements as .png files and assembling in a 2D package like GIMP or Photoshop. It gives you SO much more control.
    2. Photoshop's "Dodge" "Burn" and "Sponge" tools can really make a render pop.
    3. Motion blur on moving elements of a scene really brings panels to life.

    All in all, it's really clear how your work is progressing. Looking forward to what you do next.

    Best,

    Thanks for your comments.
    I know quite a few people on this forum use GIMP, and I'll probably get around to downloading it myself one day (assuming it's still free!). At the moment I use a program called TwistedBrush, but I only use the filters, i haven't explored it in detail. It has a blur function which I'll look into, as a lot of my pictures are "action" shots.

    Still got lots to learn!

    Cheers.
