i was doodling faces and they ended up looking like the characters from Onorobo’s Something to Talk about comic haha woops
Oh my gosh!! Killertune! This is so wonderful! Your style is so light and perfect I love the nervous and concerned looks and am deeply honored that you would draw something for me! T A T Thank you so much sweetheart! This is amazing! And really the best surprise to find on my dash ; A ;
I got this ask on lineplay, but I thought that it was a really good question! *__* I realize I’m still a beginner and I myself have a lot to learn about making comics, but I sincerely hope that someone may be able to find a grain of something useful in my reply:
“do you have any advice you wish you knew/ were glad to have before you started drawing your comics?”
Hmmm I think it’s important to remember who you’re drawing this for. There were a lot of times I almost changed something because I was worried others wouldn’t like it. But at the end of the day, a comic is just too fucking much of a hassle to ever do for anything other than personal enjoyment. Please keep your interests in mind and try not to worry about what others are into! >w<
My other point to impress upon anyone trying to make a comic is kinda obvious but really important!!! If it’s a long comic, you’re going to improve! You might look back and really hate the early pages. Please don’t freeze, don’t beat yourself up over the style, the story, or the art. Please do try and make it the best it can be, but please please please don’t beat yourself up (this applies to art in general and not just comics) because eventually that part of you is gonna chip away and win. And then you hate your stuff too much to even bother improving and it’s just BAD NEWS!!;;; Take pride in your art! Because everyone has something valuable to offer!
You should keep in mind that mistakes are normal, and a lot of readers really enjoy seeing art improve as it goes on! If there’s something giving you trouble, try to remember that a comic is a long project, mistakes are okay, the fact that you recognize them is a healthy sign of improvement, and that a comic is about the larger story, not necessarily each individual page! > w <
And just for fun, a comparison of the first page of StTA I ever did, and it’s 3rd version equivalent
First version of StTA
Third version of StTA. > w<;;;
Good luck, comic sweeties! I know you can do it!
(edit: if anyone can explain to me why the line spacing on this post is so messed up, I would be glad to hear it. ;*__*;)
This is for Onorobo~!
She is so talented and inspirational, I was just itching to draw the gorgeous character Gabe from her webcomic StTA. So, here it is~
If you haven’t already, go read StTa! Go go go! x
UUWWWAA! Everyone is being so nice to me! You are all the gentle, soothing Frodos to my horrible, skulking internet Gollum self. Y///Y *weakly dribbles tears* Thank you so much for the amazing picture of Gabe, Royal! And thank you for all of your wonderful support and positive feedback. I think you’ve really got his look down! huhu I love the pastel pink BG, very fitting ; DDD
Basically Oni is a real huge sweety who drew me a BUNCH of gift art a year or two or three back? AND I NEVER EVEN SAID THANK YOU OTL;;; It got lost in my gift art file and I stumbled over the old art and I felt like crying because I’m such a huge jack-ass that forgets when people do nice things for me, so to make up for it, I tried to do a picture with actual composition as an apology. These three are without a doubt some of my favorite characters that I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting to know and draw. I’ve drawn them a couple of times before when Oni and I would talk more, so I felt compelled to draw them again! I’m really sorry that I’m such a horrible poop and I did my best to make this a nice gift and kept it in black and white to keep with the whole comic theme… I hope it’s not too terrible and if there’s anything else I could do to apologize, please let me know.
Thank you so much for taking the time to draw for me in the past. U_U I’m really grateful and I cherish your art more than you could possibly know.
Ahhh Oh my god, Azu!!;;;; I- I hope I made it perfectly clear that you have never owed me a single thing and you have absolutely no reason to apologize! <x’D The art that I gave you back then was, unfortunately, not the erm… most skillfully crafted thing, and is really more of a horrible ungift at this point! I should be the one apologizing hahaha
This is really so sweet of you and I am deeply honored that you even remember my characters, much less want to draw them! Thank you so much, Azu!! I love the almost religious dynamics of this piece! >:”D *whisks it away to my hard drive*
