Becoming a comic artist (part 3)

Gathering the basic ideas for my comic project was harder than I thought it would be, because I could not decide what I really wanted to do. Yes of course I had a basic direction but it stays just a direction. The route I want to take is still not very clear to me. So I started to use the idea-gathering-techniques I knew:
1. Brainstorming
For me brainstorming is the first stage of collecting ideas. This is the first time I saw my ideas on paper. But now I did not know what to do with them. First I tried with a second brainstorming but that did not help much. So I let the ideas rest for one day. One day later I decided I had to draw the ideas so I have a first visual reference of what I want to do.

2. Drawing
So I drew. Now I have a first catalogue of ideas, which I can use in the future. The image you see on top is one of many sketches I drew for different undefined characters. These sketches are just a way for me to build on my ideas until I have something that I can make a comic out of. Now it is just a big mess of different ideas which I still can not use in any way. I will have to explore these ideas further and somehow make a frame of a possible story.

These are my experiences so far on gathering ideas and how to process them. I hope this was a bit helpful for you and your projects. Next week I will share how I am trying to create the first draft of the plot of my comic project.

I had high hopes for this anime. I reall looked forward to seeing this show. However, after seeing the first two episodes, I am a bit disappointend. This is neither good or bad, it is just "meh". Nevertheless, i wrote a short review.

Becoming a comic artist (part 1)

Becoming a published comic artist is a dream a lot of people have. You can share your imagination and your craft with others and if you make a living out of it, then you would call it a perfect job. Spending your day creating new adventures in exotic worlds and record your thoughts on paper, you are your own boss with all benefits and problems that comes with it. The best part of it is you need only paper, pencil, an idea and a gargantuan amount of passion and persistence – So as any job, if you want to do them well. Are there any downsides of becoming a publishing comic artist, a creator of drawn stories? Probably there are some, but it is a dream I would like to achieve. I am @TComicMan and in this series I will share how I plan to become to be a published comic artist step by step, week by week.

The simplicity of landscape paintings
By
Vimmbox

Landscapes are an important part of not only paintings but of all media in the arts. As an artist I think it is important to learn and to understand the fundamentals of a good landscape painting or photograph. Even if you paint portraits, there is a lot to learn from painting landscapes.

I think before we start such a large project we should first define for ourselves what we want to do. Of course we can change our goals all the time but it is a good idea to have at least a reference, a description of what we want to achieve and how we want to make it happen. In this article I will try do things differently. It makes no sense for me just to tell you what I want to do. You would not gain anything from it. So I will list all the major question I went through to come to my conclusion and I will comment every one of them. I will look at every question from the perspective of a storyteller.

OMG! Kokoro is such a bad girl! This week’s episode is mainly focused on Mitsuru and Kokoro. Their character development is amazing. I had a grudge against Mitsuru because of his dick-move in episode 3. However, after seeing this episode I think he is in fact a good guy. Adding to that, the Kokoro x Mitsuru ship is sailing strong!

Wow! Wow! Wow! We finally get to see Meliodas very emotional. To be honest, I almost chocked up seeing the heart wrenching scenes with Liz. In my opinion, this was the best and most emotional episode of Nanatsu no Taizai yet. I am so pumped up to see the Seven Deadly Sins develop even more.
