    Thanks a lot for sharing! That's great to see how you go about preparing the pages, since at some point I need to turn my scroll down format into pages and when that happens it's good to know what requirements I need to make it ready to print at the same time

  • Chuck, thank you for taking the time to write up that detailed response regarding your print-on-demand (POD) workflow. There are some real nuggets in there, and I especially like how you handle the text sizing in the word balloons. Also, thank you for all the tips regarding resolution, file sizes and how to work with the Kindle Comic Creator (KCC) app. Lots of great info all-around!

  • Happy to help, robertswww, and Linwelly.

    Another one off panel. Trying my hand at combining multiple render styles. Once again, the text is just for context and mood.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Cheers!

  • NIcely done, csaa. I'd say the style and mood test was successful.

    Space Viking,

    Thanks for the generous feedback! I'm at the stage when I'm exploring different art styles using Daz and Blender. Mostly I post to the NPR thread which is mainly about techniques. When I have a render that has a smidge of a story to it, then I share to this comic arts thread.

    I try not to feel pressured to put out a comic series. While I have some stories sloshing around in the old noggin, I'd like to take my sweet time to get the visuals right. There's still a lot to learn.

    Cheers!

  • Now we're cooking. Been waiting to see when you get the pages stage. 

    I have some early suggestions. Let me know if you care to hear them.

    It's rather rude to just jump in and start offering opinions when they haven't been asked for. lol

    I think "tigger" is supposed to be trigger.

     So far, so good!

     Griffin Avid,

    Thank you for the kind feedback and the vote of confidence! laugh

    Once again, though, I feel the need to set people's expectations. Most of my work will remain one-off. It'll be a stretch for me to post more than one comic panel at a time. At this stage I'm motivated to explore different art styles, to build a better vocabulary, so to speak, to express story ideas. It'll be a looooong while before I venture to put out any comicbook strip.

    That's not to say I don't appreciate the encouragement -- in fact I do. I just wish that more folks would share their work to this thread. I don't like to hog the attention. It's hard being the lonely goldfiish swimming in the aquarium.

    Cheers!

    To put another spin on the word "trigger" I watch anime production videos as much as I can. Today I caught another in NHK World-Japan's series on the topic, this one is about TRIGGER, the animation studio behind Cyberpunk Edgerunners. Here's the article with the embedded video. Hopeuflly the mods won't deep six that link.

    Many would say that comparing animation to comicbooks is an apples-to-oranges affair. But what draws me to these productions notes is the chance to glimpse how animators use light, body language and camera framing to convey emotion. It's also an opportunity to learn how they work the rhythm of a story sequence through their storyboards. When we stop the animation sequence, what we get is the emotion of a moment in one frame, the basic unit in a comic strip. And as the best animation studios pack a punch in that single frame, I argue that there's a lot to learn which can go to producing interesting comics.

    Cheers!

    Some really interesting posts here and an awesome selection of different art styles used which is really inspiring. We too (i say my brother and i) have a new comic book hopefully ready to release in the next 10 days (definitely before the holidays) on Amazon which we're really excited about. Its a brand new sci-fi story all rendered in 3DL (still trying to work on how to make Iray look more appealing in comic book form as that uncanny Valley look is too jarring at the moment). Thanks for the tips Chuck regarding the guided view on the Amazon app. The Amazon comic creator is a fantastic tool to be able to get stuff out there which we used on the Twilight of the Gods: Medusa series but never tried it in the guided view that comixology uses. Will have to give that a go one day Thanks again

     Jay Jay,

    I saw your Amazon page for the Twilight of the Gods comic book, as well as the old Kickstarter video. It looks impressive and I have no doubt you poured your heart into it. Just want to wish you the best in your upcoming project. Oh, and please share some of the images in this forum too.

    Cheers!

    Hi Cssa, thank you very much for checking out our Amazon page and thank you for the kind words. Its been a huge project but its been so much fun. All being well it will be out next week ready for the holidays after we had to make some last minute edits! Here's a couple of shots of what it's looking like! Thanks again
