This is what my shitty comic sketches look like before I finalize

I'm not a professional artist in ANY way so ...yeah please forgive me

what I do first is thumbnail the comic page how I want it to look

(I do several pages at a time so I get the flow looking right)

then I decide on the colors for the panel using a palette and map out the direction where I want the viewer's peepers to go (in this case it's an 's' as shown by the red arrows)

then I sketch the characters and poses and w/e

since this comic is a little silly, I have Susan leaning on and a little over the panel above her looking down at the panel below her, likewise, Mandark is looking up at her.

a ha ha cartoons...

this is not a special post at ALL but I thought it'd be interesting to share this here o.

It's just a sketch. I'm sure when she inks and finalizes the panel things will look different.

BTW, ITS NOT COLORED. I mean, really? :|

This is part 2 of how I make my comics...

after I sketched the first part and all that I work on vectoring out the characters (after I get the vectors done I move on to drawing the details with the brush tool...so the finished project is 'mixed media')

I keep the border a visible layer (and black so I can see it) so I know where to place the characters, I will turn the border white later

(purple) I keep a piece of the last page for palette uses since the lighting is the same

Interesting choice with Mandark. Does that mean we will see a grown Dexter and Didi? Or Monkey? Kinda can't wait to see the PP girls Older, what about the RR boys? Grown up KND? Am I asking too much? I do like the comic so far BTW.

I read the Bios, Bubbles is the one with linguistic based powers BTW, unless Blossom just learned all the languages she could, as it does fit her nature. I'm gonna be a total geek and say it needs the Tests (Jhonny , Susan, Mary, and Dookie) As well as others but I'm sure there will be all sorts of cameos.

Jhonny Test IS a cartoon Network original. Newer than the others, true, but an original non the less.

Wow, I have been away from Cartoon Network a long time.
I barely knew anything about Johnny Test, much less that it wasn't a CN original. I guess that explains some of those screen shots I have seen that have different network bugs

yup

sometimes they outsource their studios, but the end of the cartoons will still have the Cartoon Network bump

they did buy the rights for Johnny Test and put him in Fusion Fall but I really hate the show so I refuse to play that part of the game :\ and I am keeping the comic purist with the content

Fusion Fall is down for a few days for maintenance
I am seriously hoping they fix the major bugs like the crashes in Endsville for many mac users
and for people like me who can't get past the loading screen on high-speed internet and a 1 year old computer with 5 gigs of RAM and no other programs open

and it ran fine last year on an old laptop...

I know the senior developer on a personal level and have worked for the game for 10 months as a live beta tester (really it was 10 of us in a Player Advisory Council and have discussed adding and removing certain things when the game was public... brilliant time of my life)

so this game is a bit of a personal thing to me ... I'd like to be able to play again >_ <

I don't know when the next page will be out :D I haven't started it, been working on getting it translated ... so far we have Romanian http://www.codedlillycomic.com/?page_id=
279

I just realized that the comics measurements are all in metrics, but the hours are still not all read in military time XD

well, some things never change, huh? :D

I'm so used to this stupid empirical system . _.

anyway I am hoping to get my next page out before July 4th
I'm also in need of Spanish translators . _. I didn't know I was going to get Romanian before Spanish xDD

Some characters use Spanish phrases and I want to make sure my slang is right

This will be part of Mandy's battle attire . 3.

(OMG you should see her fight Mandark she totally whoops his ass...)

Dia de los muertos inspired, OBVIOUSLY

Well, why not? You're not the Grim Reaper's master for years without tacking on some of the more colorful aspects of death!

oh god so much detail in the dress I will hate myself later

and I need to work on that headpiece . 3.

Do you need Spanish translators or people who translate to spanish? Because if so, i'd be glad to help!

I know the question sounds freaking stupid.

Who are you looking for? What are you looking at?
A light? a star. A boat? an insect. A plane? a flying fish
