THE INCUBATOR / Re: Burry's Character
« on: Nov 26, 2018, 09:51 PM »
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.

Day 6 my worst by far but i don't really feel bad about it, i kind of am curious if somehow my quality declines worse than this for an inktober i wanna see what it would look like. Like i'm more interested in how bad my inktober drawings will get than the best one i do whatever that may be.

I'll set the bar low for inktober i'm just doing shitty work doodles and spending at most 30 minutes on mine without preliminary sketches.

I think i will just try to set aside 30 minutes for an ink drawing a day since i have collabs and other stuff i should be doing, with some of them being sketches done at work but i should try for it.

Here's Harlow Post Apocalypse

THE INCUBATOR / Re: SilverBlaze's Incubation pod
« on: Sep 14, 2018, 08:54 PM »
Just wondering how this sounds, if there's anything I can make sound better.
Since page 3 is currently the page that's not yet been re-sketched, there's chance to design it much better. The current script that's posted here is already the redesigned page script, so it's generally what I'm looking for. I just want to know if it can be improved in some way.

Spoiler: show

PAGE [3] (Pichi's room) (resketch page, dialogue needs work)
  • Panel 1 (Pichi punches the wall)
    • Pichi: “Bitch!”

  • Panel 2 (Cat Butler hands Pichi her coat)
    • Pichi: “She’s a fool for being so complacent.”

  • Panel 3+4 (Pichi puts on her coat and stops in front of the door)
    • Pichi: “Our numbers are declining. Our resources are low.”
       - “I can not trust her to make the right choices anymore.”

  • Panel 5 (Pichi turns her head)
    • Pichi: “If I don’t leave now, everything will be lost.”
       - “Please take care of mother.”
    • Cat Butler: “Of course Ma’am.”

  • Panel 6+7+8 ({Vertical pannels} camera pans from in front of Pichi, over her head as she looks up to the sky and leads to the final page angle)
    • Pichi: (thought) “She wants everything to stay the same…”
       - “The world does not listen to wants…”
       - “But... maybe a wish…”

See previous pages for context.

All I could say is maybe a couple of those panels could be combined in terms of dialogue like panels 3+ 4 could be one panel of a dynamic shot of her putting on a coat as she walks out also separating the final 3 panels make the dialogue sound awkward just think of those taking the same time as the time between other panels and speaking it with that time gap sounds a tiny bit weird. But honestly that's a bit pedantic and there are no crippling story issues you need to worry about, Its a good cohesive story and we get to see the characters motivation for why they end up at void. However overall I will say the story is the least important part of the intro, so long as your panels are organized right and the font you are using is readable and bubbles decent you should be set. The intro is mainly a showcase of all the technical skills that you can consistently draw a character and backgrounds, I think you may also need a more humanoid character in the intro just to show you can do humans. But I think you could just make the butler that and be set.

Time to get this show back on the road!
I'm getting Pichi Kean back up to speed and I'm going to be submitting her in by the end of the month!
That's my goal! >:U

Anyway. To start things rolling again, I'm going to post in the character information I have.

As you can see, Pichi's ref sheet is not quite finished. I have a few things left to do with it, but it's pretty close to ready.
That ref looks pretty good, though when doing the ref for submission you may want to Pichi Kean on top since people may think that top design is the character they would be drawing. Other than that it looks pretty complete, hows the intro pages looking?

I’d like to emotionally torment ArtsAndGoodies, if he’s up for it.
Awesome I welcome it, sides the idea of a 1 weeker is a scary prospect as well but I still need to go for it.

While Harlow wouldn't dress up like this himself I would hope someone fashion forward would be able to put him in this outfit cause putting Harlow in a dress is super cute.

Heyoooooo! I'm Jay- Imma' looooong time lurker, been wanting to join since like....2006? But honestly, I was young and dumb and not entirely confident in my art skills at the time. Friggin' 12 years later Void came up in recent conversation with friends and I figured I'd give it a shot this time around. I'm looking for some hardcore critiques to push myself and better my art further! <3
Welcome back and good luck, look forward to seeing your art and make sure to stop by the discord as that is very active and the best place to get quick crits on your stuff, though discord is not good at keeping stuff archived so having an incubator thread will be good for that as well.

The prospect of one week terrifies me as I struggle with 4 weekers and getting around 4-5 pages but I need to try this. I work full time but would like to screen share on google share and discord is by far the best way to contact and keep in touch with me. I use all digital and currently using clip studio. I get off work at 8 PM EST monday- wednesday, I have thursdays off, get off work Friday 6 PM, and Saturdays 3 PM

I will be aiming for 2 fully inked pages. So my focus would be on need helping making construction of characters; which i'm terrible at doing consistently, and have no idea what I'm doing when I break down characters into shapes or how to really apply that. however I have managed to salvage that but I end up making it worse with my inks which are also really bad. So the main things i need help with are inks and construction and lines of action. The things I need the least help with are writing and layouts (only because I constantly redo them so I will need help anyways since I know I need to redo my writing a couple times or at the very least the dialogue). while i do also really need help with coloring and shading it's not feasible to try and do that in this time for me. I'm also super slow so really i would like ways to do my stuff smarter since I feel like a lot of what I do is just really inefficient.

For mentors Heathen and Jiisuri both have inks I like but I'm so poor with them pretty sure any mentor can help level up my stuff.
