Very dark problems

Guess what about?

Yes - inking! 8D (no, I'm not writing about autum/winter depression here XD)

So there are several ways to ink something, and all of them look slightly or entirely different. And I'm struggling which way to go down with my comic, so....help? 8D

 Manual ink at first. Rough vs. clean lines. Both look cool, both are time consuming; for the rough one it's hard to find a balance between dirty and dynamic, the clean one will tax my patience. 8D

Digital ink. I think I won't go down this route, cause it's time time saving and consuming at the same time. You can correct till it's perfect, but for me it's hard to get a right stroke in the first place, so I'm correcting 90% of the time...

...or I just let ink be ink and go for pencil only. In that case, I need a good scanner ;)

Well, well.

What do you think? 8D

5000 CLICKS!!! and comic 'news' ;)

... and I have only boring stuff to tell you. But wow, 5000 hits on this blog. Thank you guys! :D

"Yeah you know, nothing is for free. GIVE US PICTURES."

Ya well... I don't really have some. No really. I have stuff to do. Studying, working... that kind of stuff, you know?

"We thought you're studying DESIGN! AINT THAT WITH PICTURES!"

Not .... yet???? Actually it's amazing how little we've done 'til now. The only subject which hits in with the power of a jumbo jet is Film/Animation, where we have to script, shoot and produce a commercial till the end of term. I mean, WHAT THE FUCK. THIS IS AMAZING.
Aaaand seems like a shitload of stress. YAY! Let's hope the rest of the subjects won't take too much space in the date book XD

But! Months ago I told you about that comic project I'm working on. I didn't forget that thing!

This is the status:

(don't try to zoom in, you can't read anything anyway ;D)
First rough storyboard of part one COMPLETE! 8D 'round 80 pages (4 pages per one sheet of paper), part 2 is on work and part 3 is written down and waiting.

Meet one of the minor characters, the amazing Miss Watson! 8D

 Okay, before you start to shitstorm me with "YOU STOLE THAT FROM ELEMENTARY!!!111ONE", that's not her real name. And I didn't watch the series (yet). ;)

So! The only thing I have to do now is work over these pages again, complete the other 2 parts, work over them again, draw them, ink them, scan them, correct them, letter them...... I have to go, I have a film project to do. Bye!! :D

"University of applied Sciences" - translated: "FH"


Okay, in fact "University of applied Sciences" means "Fachhochschule", but most people will rather use FH  ([ɛf.haː]) than the longer version. Because people are lazy ;D

So! My courses in Nuremberg will start tomorrow, beginning with photography, and I'm excited how the stuff will be XD (and if I'll have any free time left ;)

Oh yeah, and I somehow made it into a student dorm (or hall of residence, if you prefer british english ;D) after I paniced a long time where I should live that time ^^ Everything went well! Its amazing, I hope it'll stay that way XD

"Stop talking about your life, nobody gives a shit. This is an art blog! WE WANT TO SEE PICTURES!"

Yeah okay, I give you pictures.XD

 How about this?

"BOOH, PENCIL! Give us colored stuff at least!"


Happy? ;D

Okay, I'll give you something that moves, too: A little wip! 8D

So, I hope you' re happy now ;)  By the way, don't try that at home. Riding your motorbike in heavy rain WITH NO HELMET ON will probably get you killed. XD Yup that girl isn't what you would call a role model.
 So! See you soon, I hope. I actually have no idea how or when I will do the next post - that depends on how much time the university of applied sciences and all the surrounding stuff will eat. 

Have a nice day! ;D
