Hey Mutty!

Honestly, based on how fast you have improved your drawing skills, I can say with confidence that your art does and will have what it takes to draw a comic page. Practice is what's key, and I can only say that you'll improve with each page that you draw. What's different from "portrait" drawings and comic drawings is that the characters drawn in comics are a lot more dynamic, especially in terms of facial expressions and poses. I've noticed that you have done a lot of practice drawing different facial expressions and I think that's great. I'll post a link here that gives some brief tips on drawing poses: http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=399. It's basically saying how important thumbnails sketches are.

If I'm on the right page here and understand correctly, I still have you down for colouring Page 1.8 and inking page 1.9, yes? If you're still up for that, I would say absolutely, you can start pencilling a page. It is possible for you to pick up MadMadisson's assigned page (which was Page 21)? Let me know your thoughts!

My sketches look great (In my opiniopn. Maybe I'm biased, I don't know.) and have a lot of fluid motion. The problem is when I do my own lineart, it gets very stiff and I have no clue why. Here is my sketch process. I do a gesture sort of sketch, then a drawing sort of sketch, then after that I lineart, which sucks all the life out. I've always sucked at that. It looks awkward and kind of inaccurate as a sketch though.

Hey Mutty! You're right, your sketches look amazing Smile When you do lineart, how do you ink (e.g. type of program you use, mouse vs. tablet, what tool in the program, etc.)?

I use the curve tool in SAI mostly, because if I try to actually draw linearts they look really sketchy. (I suck at it.)

PaintTool SAI. Here's their site. http://www.systemax.jp/en/sai/
It's a pretty popular program. Smile

Ah okay Smile I'm guessing you are inking by mouse too, rather than a tablet?

I just googled inking on SAI and saw some pretty interesting videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cq9HIm8GIk, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rXJ5ZxV-oU, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZoUKIaOmbo. It seems like people are using the pen/brush tool and a tablet

But this person made a tutorial on inking via a mouse: http://kelsi-sama.deviantart.com/art/Lineart-with-a-mouse-tutorial-185177035

Hope that's helpful!

It's been a while. I'm still alive though, and I feel like my Arnold has improved a bit.
