Alt Title Madness

Postby NaKaithus on Mon Sep 24, 2001 10:55 am

Well, I've been around a number of the various Keen* forums, and I've seen newbies hop on the boards proclaiming the comic's greatness and the artist's impending godhood (don't look surprised--I've seen it happen a lot more than you might realize...). I do things I bit differently; I tend to re-interpret the logos of comics/projects I enjoy and produce them as a kind of fanart--which neatly works around the fact that I can't draw. That said, I present this. Enjoy!<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.angelfire.com/weird/atcproject/graphics/fms_alt.png"> <P> <A HREF="http://www.angelfire.com/weird/atcproject/graphics/fms_alt.png" TARGET=_blank>http://www.angelfire.com/weird/atcproject/graphics/fms_alt.png</A> if the above doesn't show...<P>Nak<P>------------------

ooh! that's so pretty!! It even looks like my comic, with the colors and the fonts. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> Thank you so much, I love to get something new, and that's just a really cool idea. I'm not so good at drawing logos myself, fonts don't particualarly like me. ^^;;; It's good to see someone who is skilled it it. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> <P>Alice ^^

Oooh. Spiffy! It looks really good, and fits with the tone of the saga. What I want to know is what does the fancy pale grey lettering say in the background. It intrueges me. Good work! And about the not being able to draw part - neither can I, but I still send in the fanarts. I'm not as good at logos as you are. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif">

Spiffy! Fonts are my friend. I have a friend who probably qualifies as a Fontmistress, or Pope of Fonts, which is fun. I'm probably along the lines of Reverend of Font.<P>No, this is not an attempt to see how many times I can say the word "font" in a paragraph. That's just what it turned into.<P>(I am not procrastinating either. oh no. not me...)<P>Anyways, the banner is cool. ^ - ^<P>Lina Inverse

^^;;; stupid Alice and her bad eyesight didn't see the cool text in the background--it's really pretty though! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> So much cooler than all the logos I've come up with. ^_^ <P>Hehe, I have loads and loads of fonts on my computer (i got a bunch to use on resumes and my demo cover). That's why I use so many different ones in FMS, I love them! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> I'm trying to have a signature font for each of the main characters to use whenever they're thinking, but so far I've only got one for Kuthra and Wilyri. ^_^ <P>Alice^^

Hahaha! I can't stop using my favorite font, actually its two, for my comic - One's called Brady Bunch and the other is International Playboy. I need to get more fonts X_x Alice, if you had your comic in color, ( I wish ;;_;; ) you could just color coordinate the text by who's talking. Thats what I do, and I think Kern does that too..

You see, the thing is, if you want this comic in color, odds are you'd be getting about a page a week. MAYBE. I honestly don't like it in color near as much. I love pencilwork, and when I color it, it destroys my shading, and also starts looking more computer-ish, when I'd rather it look more traditional. I like color for covers/artwork for fms, just not the actual comic. I guess if I did it, it would feel so much more like a chore.. ^^;;;;;

<b> Exactly! </b> That is how I'm currently feeling, I just finished coloring a page of my comic.. Which yes, is up, and is kinda shaky. (http://www.envy.nu/udestiny ) I <i> want </i> it to be colored, because color is an important thing in the story - that identifies people. And yeah, coloring does mess up shading, but I still shade in my pictures, then color it in using layers, so I don't really touch anything anymore.<P>And Alice, your comic looks fine! Whenever I try to make out a guest page or fanart for you, I have a hard time guessing what he/she is wearing in what color and so forth.. But - I still love this comic ^^
