Comic commission info.

Postby Nathan » Fri Jul 10, 2009 2:19 pm


P.S. i used Manga studio for this one, just to see how it runs. I normally do my work on Painter x. As manga studio tends to be somewhat goofy with page sizing. This a sketch more or less, so some areas or left un rework to give u an idea how i work, I will always show u a rough every page before completing said page. So as to insure you're getting your money's worth in work.

Nice job Nathan. Ana looks cute. :D
You might want to check out plain old MS Paint for lettering. When I lettered The Robots of Love, I tried a program I bought called "Comic Book Creator". It does (I assume) much the same as what Manga Studio does, but I didn't have as much control over the lettering as I did with MS Paint. I found that to be very surprising, but I like the way my lettering job turned out.
I used the version that came with Windows XP. Not sure if the Paint program that comes with Vista/Windows 7 can be used the same way.
Oh, and I know what you mean by "goofy with page sizing"... that's the main reason I didn't use Comic Book Creator. ;)

This is the kind of thing that really tempts me. Not $100 worth of temptation, but perhaps $5 to $10. I might, for instance, be willing to toss in the odd dollar towards comic adaptations of existing stories from other authors, like Nybble's "Doctor's Visit", or virtually anything BA has written.

Since so many members have expressed reservations regarding the recently launched "" site, you might want to see if you can partner with Xeran. This kind of comic would certainly give his website that added value that some say it is currently lacking.

Thanks robotman i'll look into it. Photoshop does it lil better, should have thought about that and didn't. As for the price every page is done a 11 x 17, freehand art, with only minor things to help with say text bubbles and panel layouts. Painter x and Manga studio allow me to draw without killing trees in the process. Also i will have all commissions backed up should u ever lose said comic. If later on you discontent with a single page or two, i'll work with you to redo them for free. I'm still sitting on how to price colored work since this takes more time to do. Specially if i have to make sure it all the same colors from panel to panel, page to page. which is why i'm just doing black and white atm. Every Comic commission is your personal comic, i'm merely taking your words and turning them into a picture. Ana is a sample page if what i can do. As i said earlier it is uncomplete and i will add a final finish piece later on.
