Comic 11/10/18 - Necros is Still Flippin' Crazy
heroesofcrash posted a topic in Heroes Of CrashTheHeroesOfCRASH.com Enticia didn't want Necros to flip over her THAT way... or DID she? There's a bit that I could comment on here, but I won't, because I don't want to spoil things. Sometimes it's fun playing with the paint effects, whether it's using transparency to create a glowy effect in panel two, or different paintbrushes to make streaks of color in panel three. I'm quite pleased how this strip turned out, especially those panels. Previously, I indicated whispering by using a dotted line for word balloons. But that was back when I drew the comic in Flash. Now that I'm using Manga Studio (Or is it Clip Studio Paint, now? I'm not sure, because I got the physical copy, not the download), there's pre-made word balloon tools, which don't include dotted lines. So now, I'm using gray to make the words seem faded and hushed.
Comic 2/11/17 - Rocket Can
heroesofcrash posted a topic in Heroes Of Crashtheheroesofcrash.com Belt Boy's used the Wrapper Rope of Righteousness before... waaaaaaaaaaaay back in his first battle against Miss Sunflower. Tying her to the trash can appears to be a new twist, but it looks like this plan might backfire on him...! The sound effects in the first panel are actually borrowed from the first time BB used his Wrapper Rope. I even wrote the letters in green, similar to how they were written before. Drawing Miss Sunflower was a pain, but the backgrounds - though difficult - were more fun to play around with. The anime influences on my art aren't as strong as they once were, but every so often they make themselves known, like in that last panel (which I love!).
Comic 1/28/17 - Paul Zaloom Would Be Proud
heroesofcrash posted a topic in Heroes Of Crashtheheroesofcrash.com Seems Belt Boy has a plan coming together... and it's going to either be brilliant or extremely silly. Oh, who am I kidding? Knowing Belt Boy, it'll probably be both. For this comic, I decided that B.O.N.N.I.E. could communicate with Belt Boy without putting up her screen via his B-Chip - the communication device that he, Cannon, and Titanium Maiden all have hidden in their headgear. It seems logical, as having her screen out would probably keep him from running as fast. I also decided to have BB look a bit less worn-out than he did in the last strip in which he appeared; he's covering it up a bit better as he puts his "game face" on. Plus, I think it helps that he's focused on one thing right now: defeating Miss Sunflower. And I'll admit, I just like how he looks in the first panel and I didn't want to ruin it by frazzling his hair or showing the bags under his eyes. So I'll excuse them away however I want. So there. Nyah, nyah. :-P Seriously, though, I do like his pose in that first panel. While I've been largely focused on improving the anatomy of my characters over the past year or so, I feel like I've neglected the "toony" side of their design, leaving my characters a bit stiff. So, I'm doing a bit of experimenting by starting my drawings with a "line of action" in order to make better poses. From what I understand, it's best to exaggerate the line of action as much as possible, as it loses some of that exaggeration when you add in structure. I think that first panel is an indication of how well it's helping; BB looks like he's really moving. The title of this comic is a reference to actor Paul Zaloom, who played the title character on Beakman's World. While I appreciate Bill Nye's past and continuing contributions to the scientific community, he was only my third favorite educational TV scientist. My second favorite was Mr. Wizard (I remember waking up early in the morning and seeing Mr. Wizard's World on Nickelodeon many times hwen I was really, really young), and my number one pick was - you guessed it - Beakman. His show was a lot like Bill Nye's with its comedic tone and cartoony sound effects, but he had two co-stars (A disgruntled man in a rat suit named Lester, who often served as the straight man or victim for many a joke, as well as one of three different female lab assistants that changed between seasons), and he actually answered kids' science questions that were mailed to him (In an era where the internet wasn't popular yet, computers weren't in every house, and Googling stuff was essentially impossible, this was HUGE.). Also, I got to meet "Beakman" at a science museum tour, help him on stage, and get his autograph, so he's definitely a sentimental favorite. :-) Oh, and lastly, did you catch that pop culture reference on the cover of Belt Boy's book? That gag was a last-minute addition, and I hope some of my fellow animation fans get it...!
