Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

FYI, I am scrambling to finish my entry by tomorrow. I will have one but my "style" may wind up to be "minimalist impressionism."

My entry will be posted in the pinned thread by tomorrow afternoon or evening at the latest.

Ptrope, I noticed that you have separated the two threads. Thank you for that. Also, thank you for stickying the comic thread.
No problem! They were already separate, anyway, but I thought moving the comments over here really was the best way to handle it, and, yippee, they moved over in chronological order with all the other posts!

BTW, unless someone new signs up in time, I'll be happy to tackle Lucky 13 ... (don't want to be a hog, of course )

Actually I figured when we ran out of new artists the circle would start in the same order...but I guess that's up to the group to figure out?

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

^^ That's fine with me . I didn't make that assumption, though, just because some folks may not want to go through a second round, and others will obviously join in after we've already started repeating; I guess I figured it would continue as members signed up to 'the list,' in whatever order they did so.

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

Very nice, Vektor! Well worth the wait; love the style and the layout . Is this drawn and scanned or completely digital? (btw, "something" is misspelled in the last panel )

I love the way this is going, overall - we should've done something like this a long time ago .

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

OK, looks like I'm in the hot seat now. And I bet you guys think I'm gonna' "shoe horn" M'Ress into my offering. As tempting as that might be, I don't see how I can do that without it appearing blatantly forced.

So, Vector depicts Gary Seven's "widget" still in "Kirk's" hand. Hmm, yeah, I think I can work with this.

BTW, Vector, that is a very well illustrated portrait of McCoy. It looks like the good doctor has been the best captured likeness in this visual narrative.

Sincerely,

Bill

Wow, Vektor! That's just awesome! But ... I expected nothing less of you. I too love the way you've drawn McCoy. You really hit the nail on the head with that illustration. My favorite panel though is the last one. I love how Kirk is hiding behind the wall.

Thank you. That's heartwarming actually.

It's actually completely digital, which is noteworthy because I had just bought myself a small Wacom tablet the day before my turn came around; prior to that, I had never done any 2D digital art before. I didn't buy the Wacom specifically for the comic project but I figured it would be a good way to learn the new software and become familiar with the process. In retrospect, I probably should have chosen something without a one week deadline.

The results weren't too bad. I'm particularly happy with the closeup of McCoy. The coloring was a little rushed, though, and came out sloppier than I wanted, although it's consistant with certain styles of watercoloring. If I'd had more time (or a shorter learning curve!) I could have added a lot more detail, better shading, etc, but shoulda woulda coulda. It's done and I'm happy with it.

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

For a one-week work, while trying to also learn new hardware and software, you've done a bang-up job! The watercolor 'look' is unique, and suits the style perfectly - the 'sloppiness' gives it a very real, 'non-digital' feel. I don't honestly think it would be better with more detail or polish.

Just out of curiosity, the backgrounds look like you may have modeled them. Is this the case? I know there are several 2D comic artists now working with SketchUp to create quick-but-accurate interiors and exteriors, that they then integrate as backgrounds with their hand-drawn characters ('hand-drawn' by way of a tablet, usually).

Nope, no SketchUp or any other kind of 3D. I did use the straight-line tool for the panel edges and parts of the backgrounds but it was all 2D.

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

Another fantastic addition to the story! We might have to print and bind this thing folks!... At least a PDF maybe.


Vektor, did you just do this in Photoshop or another more exotic program like Painter? The "paper" texture you have certainly adds to the impression that it's traditional media as well.

It's cool to see Kirk has something in his hand which might or might not be the pen. I think common threads between each of our individual panels (like Arex, the pen, Nurse O'Malley, etc.) are one of the things that really make this fun to read and participate in.

Looking forward to what Redfern has in store for us next, with our without M'Ress.
