Which drawing style?

Postby Metal-Angel on Thu Jan 10, 2002 4:06 am

Yup, being insecure, instead of giving it to you my way, I'm going to ask what you want!<P>Did you prefer the older comics which were darker and had grey-scale flood filling, or the newer unenhanced pencil comics (which I may start pencil-shading)?<P>Just wondering.<P>------------------

Gosh, thanks for the non-answer <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"><P>Actually, I'd say pencil-shaded is probably best. My stuff isn't good enough to get away with being just lineart like Annie THG or MegaTokyo, and the process of making it computer-shaded is very time consuming (since I have to make sure all the lines formed closed shapes to prevent it spilling over).<P>Right, decision = has been made (sorta). I would love it, though, if anyone would care to explain how to get Adobe Streamline to work properly for me, as it smoothes things out but also makes the lines far too thick!<P>------------------

Well, I like them both. If one of them makes you a better cartoonist use that one, it's all in your head. Did Kraftwerk ask their fans if "pling-wheee" or "DA-ploink" sounded best in song X? <P>------------------

Yeah, again (you remember how we all moaned about deforming pencilwork) what looks nice on paper often comes out COMPLETELY WRONG when scanned... and I can't be as extreme with the Photoshop curves now as I'll lose the more delicate shading effects.<P>However, I think there's a thumbprint on my scanner's glass so I better clean it <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"><P>------------------

either!<P>the pencil's cool, tho some pencils seem faded, or maybe i should be wearing my glasses so i can stop squinting at the monitor.<P>you can always go for pencil, then treat us to grayscaled art days, or the other way round <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>------------------
