    Non-Competitive Comics...

    I'm starting this stickied thread for you guys who have comics you're proud of that are already done, or for items that are FINISHED but weren't done in time for one of our polls. You can also post competitive B&Ws that were in competition if you went ahead and colored them after the competition. It's open to anyone who is a member of CA...

    Treat this section like the sketchbook section. Open ONE thread for yourself, and post your comics in that one thread as updates.

    I have all the competitive comics so far in some stage of completion, and as I get them done, I'll post 'em here. I'm making a special effort to be as experimental as possible so my posts will be pouncing all over the place style-wise and technique-wise.

    This is POW! Number 7 in Black and White--Illustrator, litho crayon, and Photoshop.

    My other comics... by Hannes

    This I did for school and the subject was a typical or more generic girl comic, so I did some YAOI-stuff. I have a habit of making all sort of things so I dont have a certain style, I think... Anyways, I'll upload something more when I have anything that could fit in here.

    Here's a little tribute to both the Peanuts comic strips and my recently departed dog (the coolest black labrador there ever was!)

    i've always loved looking through this section of the weekly events, and one of these days I'll find the time to take part. For the meanwhile, here's a couple of comic type pieces I've done to date. Maybe posting these will give me the kick I need to come and join in!

    Ilkalae.. I love the style of the comic you have posted... is it shapes cut from a scanned texture or two? And Kmadden, the paris hilton strip gave me a giggle.

    Heeheehee...I see we're getting quite a collection of rather nice stuff together in here.

    Zephyri, the art is a bastard form of frottage/collage that I sometimes use. The primary simple shapes are created in illustrator, then copied to PS where i use them as selection areas to create masks with the selection wand.

    The texture comes from a set of scans of various patterns I create with litho crayon (as here), scraped paint on textured paper, and any other texture I can come up with. I simply copy parts of these pattern sheets out and trim them to fit with the "selection masks" and INVERT-DELETE on sep layers in PS.

    You can do some remarkable things very quickly like this, especially using colored samples and different layer transparencies.

    Before computers, I actually did art like this with torn paper glued down as collage and shot as hard ortho line images. (see really oooolllldddd example below--done around 1970± if memory serves)

    Myrdrym: That is cool. After seeing the first page that you showed on IRC is wondered what it was all about, but I like the style and flow of the story

    Mydrim: Really digging the style! On page two I would have reordered the first three panels: |#3|#1|#2| to give maximum impact to the action. I do love the gurgle at the end, but part of me wanted to hear the answer to to riddle too... Love the way the creature speaks.

    I finally finished Nathan Long's comic (although now I see another little place I forgot to paint black).
