Mercedita OC

 

 

Hey guys! It’s been a while and I’m itching to post stuff here but my internet is really bad. *SOB* #firstworldproblem.

Anyway, here’s the opening page for my comic Mercedita. The first one is my first attempt at tone, ink and rendering. After a great feedback session from my wonderful Curtin Illustration Club members, voila !  The best render I did yet for a comic!

I’d like to share some of the points that were pointed out during our feedback session:

1. Font size! I changed the 9pt to 6pt that looks just about right in print size (approx A5 size page).

2. Gray Scales! Taking advantage of different grayscales to render faraway objects and to separate background from word balloons and characters

3. Black Ink! Our eyes tend to focus on the black, so I inked my characters which I was feeling lazy to do and it was worth it. Also, the trees were standing out too much so I used grayscale tone to make them subtle and blend them in the background.

And so far that’s all I could remember. Fingerscrossed I could finish in time to print and sell in Supanova…. >_<

Happy comic making weekend!
