DRAW MORE KORRA DC COMICS HEROES OR JUST KORRA SUPERHEROES IN GENERAL IT'S REALLY AWESOME
I…Actually started drafting some Green Lantern Asami comics, but I’m not going to finalize anything until I’ve watched season 2 (which will happen after the first week of december, when my semester ends) so I can assess what I have to work with
BE READY FOR IT
(Just a note, the only bit of the DCU I’m actually a fan of is GLTAS, and nothing else. I have tried reading the comics but largely I’m not really into them, although probably starting with Green Lantern New Guardians was a mistake. Also, reading Geoff Johns writing bores the hell out of me DON’T JUDGE)
qinni said: you’re so cuuute :D. are those chinese words behind you? what do they say? *curioussss*
My mom tells me it says “the gospel will be passed on forever”, and the other side of the doorway has the matching red tag that says “God’s love will endure”. I think we hung them up like three (weirdly Catholicism-influenced) Chinese new years ago and never took them down?
How do you color? I'm interested the way you colored the last piece you posted, with Athena and Juniper. Is there a tutorial somewhere or at least some pointers you could provide? :)
Eh, these days I am basically banging rocks (well, colours) together and trying to remember whatever looks nice for when I need it. Try a lot of things, fail a lot of times, look at a lot of pictures, and slowly you’ll build up a repertoire of what you like to look at, what you know how to do, and how to make things look like the things you like to look at.
That said, you’d probably learn more about colouring from taking an eyedropper to that picture and laying out the colours to see how they interact and then using those colours yourself instead of asking for tutorials.
I also posted this thing not too long ago I guess, I dunno, I don’t think it’s very helpful
I probably shouldn’t answer asks when I’m dizzy from sleep deprivation
in your party wagon drawing, does the girl in the bowler cap happen to have a name that starts with a T? because i think we go to the same school together she's very recognizable omg this is really awkward i'm sorry;;;
ahaHAHAHAH yeah Tea is one of my drawfriends, boy she’s gonna get a kick outta this
Vivi! I'm thinking that un-outlined art would be an awesome thing for me to do, so I'm wondering what your process when you begin? Like, how do you make your shapes of color the way you want them? I hardcore adore your Ace Attorney pictures.
I always start with a sketch where I work out all the shapes and the pose/composition and whatnot.
then I have to fix all of the tangents, which are possibly even more distracting in a lineless drawing (where the lines are made by the contrast between overlapping areas of colour) than one that’s inked.
I usually have an adjustment layer of some sort on top of my other layers that I can toggle to quickly check the values of the colours I’m using.
(the skirt is actually a little closer in value than I would like to the underside of the coat, but in the colour version it’s not such a problem because the skirt is more saturated and jumps out at you)
The hands really jump out because they’re quite light and set against a dark-ish blue, although I did have to add an extra shadow on the skin to make sure the skin stays separate from the white sleeves+collar.
And that’s the gist of it, I guess. VISIBILITY AND CONTRAST ARE IMPORTANT, you can always cheat and do slight gradients or tweak shapes in order to keep the entire image easily readable.
What was your first starter pokemon? (Or if you never played pokemon, what was the first video game you ever played?)
I know I’ve played pokemon but I really don’t remember what my first starter was, maybe a bulbasaur? MAN my memory is terrible. I also know that I played legend of zelda: oracle of seasons, but I don’t think I actually played a game (without sharing a save file with my brother) from start to finish until…Portal? Sounds about right.
Viiiivi what's the hardest part about illustrating your own webcomic (which is fantastic If I may add!)
Oh gosh, for me the limiting factor is always the thumbnailing/layout. Layout/composition is (to me, anyway) my biggest weakness in comics. I always want to overcomplicate things and stick speech bubbles in weird places and I haven’t quite found my own pace and style yet, so I tend to procrastinate on laying everything out. After that, though, it’s smooth sailing because the heart of illustration IMO is in a strong composition so the heavy lifting has been done. But I’ll only get better at layout by actually drawing more layouts so I GUESS IT MUST BE DONE.
