Step by step - comics by Marc-G Step by step - comics by Marc-G
:bulletblue:EN :
Here is a step by step of how I work on my comics. This is not a tutorial and you won't learn any cool tips but I hope it can help some of you somehow.
I tried to make it as complete as possible though I'm not so sure that each step is enough explained so feel free to ask for more info/details by commenting.

:bulletblue:FR :
Voici un step by step qui décrit les étapes par lesquelles je passe quand je travaille sur une BD. Ce n'est pas un tuto et je n'y donne aucun tuyau mais j'espère que ça sera quand même utile à certains.
J'ai essayé de détailler chaque étape mais si un point vous parait encore obscure, n'hésitez pas à demander et je tenterai d'y répondre ;)

That's awesome! Means I'm doing things right! It's roughly the same steps I take to work on my comic. I have a folder for each chapter, and in the folders I have text files for each page. Rough, but does the job. ^^"

How long did it take you to make that one page??
Reply
:iconmarc-g:
Marc-G Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The time I spent in a single page depends on how much background there is, I'm not very comfortable with those as with perspective. For this page there was a lot of backgrounds so it took me more time than usually.
Generally, for an average page, I spent :
- 1 and half hour (2 max) on sketching
- 3 hours on inking
- 2 hours on toning/shading

I hope you're selling them with a good price for your own, seeing how time consuming one page could be!
Talk about it to yourself, friends and family and have a go to see if it'll work out. I have no idea how comic artists start, but you could if you want be a 'manga' artist, or those internet artists!like gamercat and loadingartist, check them out! all you need would be ideas on how your website comic would attract the audience :)

Wow I really really really appreciate the comic even more than I did! It does take a lot of effort and knowledge to create something like this. So far it's really sexy and beautiful and one of my favorite webcomics(I have several I check everyday!)

I also really appreciate that you have the English down the page a bit. I speak and understand French, but not a lot.

Keep up the great work!

A BIENTOT!! ;)

Even Sai Paint? I have Gimp but that thing is like a backwards rubix cube to me still
Reply
:iconmarc-g:
Marc-G Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, I don't know about Sai Paint because I never used it but I'm pretty sure you could find equivalent functionalities in it.
For Gimp, I totally agree with you, so not user friendly!

:iconempt-minded:
empt-minded Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm still learning with SAI PAINT too ha ha

The most I learned in Gimp was making a circle, but I've all but forgotten that by now.

I'll keep practicing though

Je suis admirative de la rigueur avec laquelle tu bosses ! Moi qui me trouvais vachement bien organisée sur mon dernier projet, je dois admettre que c'est encore l'anarchie totale à côté de ton processus XD...
Tu as déjà écrit tout ton scénar/fait tout ton script jusqu'à la fin !

Marc-G Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Je t'avoue que je passerais bien de certaines étapes, genre si mes croquis pouvaient être assez propres pour que je n'ai pas besoin d'encrer. Mais bon, je n'en suis pas encore là ^^;

Mon scénario est complètement écrit oui mais j'ai juste les grandes lignes. J'écris le script au fur et mesure ; pour le moment, j'ai 5 chapitres d'écrits et j'avance au grès de mon inspi :)
