Comic tutorial dropdown

Comic tutorial dropdown

Postby Joel Fagin on Wed Oct 20, 2004 10:03 pm

This should possibly have gone under "Dropdowns and Crossovers" but I don't really count it under the same umberella as categorising comics. Doesn't fit there for me.

Anyway, I've set up a dropdown for tutorials. Not tutorial websites, mind, but the actual tutorials. I'd like to facilitate browsing for surfers more than I want mutual plugging and reader-sharing for the writers. It's negotiable, though. I just prefer it like this. Makes more sense to me.

McDuffies said he wanted to be in it and I assume he still does so I've slapped his tutorials in to bulk it up. He also had a nice spread of topics so it shows how the dropdown's organised well.

Anyone else is, naturally, quite welcome. Frankly, I'd like the lot of ya. Comprehensive is good.

That's an interesting concept. You should at least copy this to dropdowns and crossovers, though. It fits both categories.

Define "tutorials". I was going to do a "making-of"-Flash-Animation in the next couple of months, in which I explain step for step, how our comic is done. I'm planning on going into detail, but it's not going to cover the basic drawing, inking or story-telling procedures as such.

A heck, I'll just show you when I'm done and you can decide if it fits in there or not, once you've seen it.

That'd be great. "Makings of" can happily go under their own category in the dropdown.

Thanks, McDuffies. I'll start bothering people, oh, probably next week. I'd start now but I'm in the middle of applying for my own job.*

Whoops. I'm so sorry, Starline. I saw this, thought "Oh, yes. I'll have to add that." and... forgot all about it. Image

I just added it. I put it under "Makings of" since that's mostly how it reads but it's also a bit borderline so let me know if that's okay.

Thanks.

Just added Rianeva's Sprite Comic Tutorial. The name's a touch misleading as it has some really good stuff that applies to any comic. Another one that should be force fed to newbies. Image

I'd like to see a tutorial on Inking in B&W comics. How to use variable line thicknesses to imply depth. What lines should be thick & what lines should be thin. If there is already one please point me to it.

Thanks in advance

Hey Joel. Just thought you may want to know that "Amber's Webcomic Tutorial" is a dead link. Cheers for the others though. ;)
