o that's cool you already have the design prepared for her and you can upload the intro with a longer hieght than normal, the width should be 1000 px becuase any wider is too big for the screen. also feel free to post your progress here and in the discord. I look forward to seeing your work.

After some recent incidents Harlow has decided to reach out Void's alien community and get an assistant that can both help him with inventions and help if things ever get rough. Harlow found one and his name is Andrew and Harlow gave him some enhanced arms to help deal with any sticky situations.

Harlow also made to directly address the issue of his habit of breaking into places with Arena to make sure everything was all taken care of before the election

Harlow is fresh face in void and the political landscape. Having already proved to be a productive member of society repurposing an dead abandoned factory to make his own inventions as well as providing prosthetics of a new caliber he seeks to do more for Void.

You're doing a good amount of work pretty fast which is awesome. some more quick advice I would say is for the word bubbles.
get a font from this site: or another one like it. The default fonts don't look good in comics and will distract the reader. also you should add a black border to all your dialogue bubbles to more easily separate them from the images.
For more detailed information on how to level up your bubbles here's a great forum post on them.
good luck and I look forward to seeing more progress.

Ok thats cool, well here's what i have so far. I think its going preety well but this is a foriegn experience but i think itll run more smoothly the more I do.

What pointers do you guys have on streamlining the coloring process?
So as someone who needed to follow the advice this year I will tell you a couple things I have been told.
          -I'm not sure what size and resolution you are working at but it looks like it's too small. With comic files you will want a bigger file size than the completed version you show. You want at least a 300 DPI resolution and a good size to start with is 2500 px wide by 3500 px tall. You can save a duplicate at a smaller size and that would be the one you submit (you will want 1000 px width for the one you want to submit). This will make it look much smoother and give you way more leeway to work with since your colors don't fit in the lines all the time.
           - Working at the bigger size allowed you to work with bigger brushes and make your lines look smoother and less pixalated. also since you have a tablet make sure your pen pressure is on and you're using a brush that has pen pressure since line variation is important as well. Generally for line art you will want a 5 px brush when working at the size i mentioned before.
           -You need to use multiple layers for the line art and colors and panel frames. Panel frames on top layer, line art below that and then Color layer below that. All your line art should be the same color and you shouldn't worry about lineless styles or colored line art at this point.
           -Once you have your line art put your coloring layer below it so you don't have to worry about covering the lines and it gives you more leeway to not have to worry about white spots. 

There are tons of tutorials on youtube as well and i would highly recommend looking up some of those since those are from people who didn't learn coloring literally this year. There are some tutorials in the forums but they have a couple broken links. If you want screenshot steps I can do that though it would be easiest through the discord. I would also say most everyone else on the site is a better coloerer than me but i just learned this year so maybe saying the stuff people walked me through could help you.

Good luck on doing your intro if you haven’t already you can make an incubator thread, on top of that posting your progress in the art chat on the void discord is good for getting quick advice since people are more active on there.

Hi, my first question would be what type of printer and scanner do you have? Or are you also looking to get those as well to help your process? In terms of that process pocketmouse has done similar stuff in that she pencils it then rearranged the panels digitally and then inks traditionally, so I would recommend asking her here or on discord for more details and advice for this process.
In terms of page size one of the options clip studio has when making a new file is to make it going by page size, this option I find generally under the comic section when making a new file but I believe there is a way to choose the size of a file by preset pages. Also if your printing it your DPI needs to be at least 300 if not 600.

Garland Steelestring

Garland was exiled from Opalhaven many years ago after breaking the rule of creating beings with artificial intelligence. During his exile he has made a living laying low in Void’s quiet cleaners, the Bureau of Disposal and Mortuary. There he has slowly climbed the corporate ladder and now has a comfortable position as a Chief of Staff, well liked by the directors he has this position pretty much for life. This leaves him in charge of the morgue for all those who die in the various death tournaments void hosts. He does his job well and leads a quiet life having a secretive life and not spending time in public places. However he will occasionally feel compelled to “help” some of the unfortunate souls who died in these tournaments. Combining his knowledge of automatons and combining it with the knowledge of various magic he “helps” by giving them a new life in the Dollhouse, which is his secluded mansion on the outskirts of Void.

If you have a dead meta character you want to have a terrible after-death experience feel free to have Garland be the one that does that by turning them into an automaton doll.
