HP Lovecraft, Guitar Hero, Narnia

Some things I did recently that I thought were presentable. Criticism welcome. Thanks for reading.

Another Blue Pencil Question

I recently started drawing my comics in photo-blue pencil. I was aware that it would scan, but was sure that I would be able to easily eliminate it in Photoshop. I did it with levels (I'm not exactly sure how), but it was not as easy as I thought it would be, and I still had to scrub out blue residu...

Thanks Andrew. That was helpful. I got my image posted in a blog. It went up alright, but the colors are radically altered. Blue and yellow have switched places, but green and white haven't been affected. It is very strange. Here is a link to the page if you want to see it: http://practicalutopianis...

When it is uploaded, it doesn't show a preview image, or a large image. No image at all, in fact. When I post it, I just get a "broken image" icon. Like so: http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m166/noone421/meaning2_post.jpg The image is 831 KB, fairly large, but below photobucket's 1 MB size limit.

Thanks. Glad you liked them. I don't have a website at the moment. I've done about six or seven comics that I think are presentable and plan to put them on a site when I have more. As for the lettering, I'm glad it came off as "quirky" rather than just clumsy. It's something I'm working on improving...

Norse Mythology, and the News

I recently began doing comics, and I consider these to be my two best drawn pieces to date. There is a third that I am having trouble posting, but I may put it up later. Critiques welcome. Thanks. http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m166/noone421/Comics/odin.jpg http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m16...

Time

I've belonged to this forum for a while, but this is my first image post. As an amateur amongst professionals, I'm not sure I should be posting here, but I would appreciate your remarks. Thanks.

Paper Texture

Since I do not have a tablet, my comics are always drawn on paper and scanned into Photoshop. I imagine many of you use the same method. How do deal with the texture of the paper in the image? I usually bump up the contrast, but sometimes this also takes out shading and other details of the image. I...

Bradbury is still alive. I'm not sure I'd classify him as contemporary, though. If you like his short stories, you would probably enjoy what I consider to be his best novel "Something Wicked This Way Comes". I think my favorite of his short stories are the ones set on Mars. The imagery he uses reall...

Good design. I think using the hands is much more subtle and adds a more human feel to it.

Slightly off topic, but I wonder how a feminist would feel about being described as "ballsy"? :wink:
