Am I okay enought to make a webcomic? Some people say Im a good artist, but they are friends so I cant really trust that their being honest....
Also, I have no computer skills for coloring etc.... Just some guy who doodles.
I think you're more than good enough, and you're a great artist! I go to art school, and that looks like someone who's got skills for sure! You've got some good friends, it sounds like. Gotta have people who support you.
I bet you could learn skills for coloring. You seem talented. And if those are doodles, I can't wait to see how good your other art is.
You're art is okay, not great. But webcomics are about story, not art. On top of that, doing a webcomic is a great way to improve your skills. Look at virtually every webcomic on the net. Page 1 is an ugly mess while the current page is usually either decent or beautiful.
Except for Questionable Content which has looked like ass for its entire run, yet is still popular for some reason. I mean, you can draw better than THAT guy so that's pretty good to start you off.
Haha, yeah, I read a bit of QC. I absolutely hate it. Its so... Ugh... I dunno. Like all the characters are the same fucking person. They are all "oh gee, look how accepting and tolerant I am, I still have a cheekt attitude though".
For comics, nothing tops Coyote for me, though they did steal my ww2 idea.
I updated it for you guys and your /pol/ crush.
>am i good enough to make a webcomic?
The guys at the How's Your Webcomic thread at /co/ will give you a hard time but imo, your art is passable enough to tell a story.
Get photoshop, start lineart and color, organize the story into a comic and then give me another call.
the webcomic guys at /co/ are an interesting bunch. If you ask me, most of them are mediocre with at least three people who have great webcomic potential.
But they might be openminded to gay stuff. Give them a try, who knows?
>people now ask this question on /gbt/ rather than /ic/ or /co/
>not even on the /wcg/ thread
This makes no fucking sense familia.
Also that dude looks like Joshua from transfusions. You gotta work on your anatomy and perspective too senpai. Practice, practice, practice.
Non visual? You mean like plot and stuff? I'm kinda worried about that. I kinda like the traditional top/bottom fem/masc relationship which may be a bit to cut and dry for the average person here....
Then again, ARH and TOY do pretty okay...
The difference between a story and a comic is that a story has one leg while a comic has two.
When you only have one leg, that one leg needs to be strong enough to support all the weight on its own, but you only need to work on making that one leg stronger. If you don't, people are going to ask why you're still showing off that game leg.
When you have two legs, the shortcomings in one leg can be propped up by the other, but it does involve more overall work and you'll probably have a dominant leg regardless of how much you practice. That's fine so long as you keep pace with the other leg. Falling behind with one leg is called limping. Falling behind with two legs is called tripping.
When you have no legs, you make a comic about videogames.
Funny joke aside this is kind of a bad example. Some comics have what would be considered "bad" art but would actually be worse if their art was better because of the atmosphere said art creates. Achewood comes to mind.. comics are more than just words plus pictures. The combination evokes an intangible fourth dimension, much in the way movies do.
Take a life drawing class at your local community college. I was skeptical at first, but it was actually a great way to improve my comprehension of anatomy and musculature that drawing from 2D reference couldn't provide. You won't have many other opportunities to spend so much time analyzing nude bodies in dynamic poses that aren't moving.
