Hello everyone, my name is Dustin and a couple days ago, I decided to try my hand at making a comic as its something i'm something i'm sure all artists think about at least once or twice. However i'm lazy and don't like research so I decided to just blindly, no planning, prep, or research and I have to say it is a'lot more difficult than I imagined.
So to start off planning just the page and panel set up alone is just insanely difficult so I decided to probably, possibly do it the wrong way and just draw some scenes and than plan the panel set up after I have drawn the scenes.
Now this especially hard for me because i am what you could call a symettry tool for 90% of my drawings, so havig to basically not use the one thing im good with really threw me off but i sucked it up and pushed through and eventually created soethung i was happy with.
(some of my symmetry tool works)
After a few good 20 minutes of angrily scribbling I eventually decided to start and made a square around to stick men I drew and decided to plan it off those two stick men. After the square was done I took out my sketch book and flipped through it looking for some character designs to go with but ultimately decided to make new design from scratch.
So I roughly drew body like forms around the stick men to get a good idea of how much space the characters would take up, where the characters should be, and other odds and ends before i decided on a design for them.
After that I finalized their plaement and size, and roughed out a more solidified form for the characters decideing on having a female and a male. This as far as iv'e gotten as I have decided to take a break and walk away from it for a litttle
If you have gotte this far I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to read this, and if you have any critiques, tips, or advice I am all ears and would love to hear them.
