Unusual Tides

Post  Renester on Tue Apr 10, 2012 4:14 pm

Hey guys, I'm going to start posting comic on here called "Unusual Tides" which I started making and I'll be focusing more on that instead. It's actually a LOT faster to complete a page for this comic because of the way I'm colouring it, so it'll be easier to maintain this one if I have stacks of work to do because of.. you know.. FREAKING TAFE. Which I love, but the workload is still kind of a killer.

I made arrow icons for it already. Forward arrow, back arrow, start arrow and last page arrow:



Damn I'm proud of those shells... Also proud of the title too. It took me.. what, five minutes tops to come up with it? And it actually sounds good. Amazingly. I think it sounds good anyway.
I also have the thumbnail for the comic:



There are pirates in this comic in case anybody is wondering. YAR HAR FIDDLE DEE DEE~

Still need to make a header. I can work on that some other time. Need to also start the cover page, but I know basically what I want. I'm thinking about posting it in one or two months time, depending how things go. So far it's made a stupidly large amount of progress considering the lack of time.

And I made the Prologue Chapter page:



I don't know why I like using that writing on Chapter pages so much...

This is all stuff I managed to do today, but they're pretty simple tasks so meh XD The Prologue Chapter page is somewhat minimalistic, if you can call it that, but I think it still looks alright.

The Genre is also Adventure/Comedy and will have Romance and Action. More Action than Romance though. But the Prologue is ALL SRS BSNS GAIS... up until like, the last two pages of the eight. But after that it takes a pretty comedic turn.

Made the header:



The first one I made was too damn tall, so I squashed it up a bit. Still looks alright. I dislike headers that are too tall.
I decided I'll also leave a message on this thread every ...Monday? Seems like a good day. Just to give a little update on how I'm going with the comic.

I managed to finish the cover this morning before having to go out for Greek Easter! HUZZAH! Oh and, Kalo Pascha! I was actually going to upload the cover tomorrow, but since I'm going to write a report on how I'm going with the comic every Monday I decided to upload today.

Gills. I always forget his gills. Also putting up the first chapter page again so things can be in order.

Update? NOPE, CHUCK TESTA. Time for the Monday report, to let you guys know how the comic is going.

Ok, first off: The prologue is going to be exactly 8 pages long. The thumbnails have been drawn for all pages. I say thumbnails because I draw rough, small sketches so I can get a proper layout for the pages. It's also to work out what drawings I want inside the panels and where the speechbubbles should be. So again, thumbnails skecthes have been completed for the prologue.
Thumbnail sketches have also been done for pages 1-4 of the first chapter.

Now, final page wise: Page 1 AND 2 are finished. Page three is in the lineart stage. And uh... Remember how you guys told me to do the pages in order? I am but I started doing page 7 whilst I was working on 1 and 2. So... page 7 is almost done Ohoho~ I felt really compelled to draw that page, OK?

What do you think would be a good day to put the first page up? Not including today.

Haha Thanks. I have a feeling I'll be doing more sneaky uploads in the future, considering the amount of time I spend on the damn city campus.

Obvious pairing is obvious... OR IS IT? Mermaid refers to a woman as Merman refers to a man. So.. yep, Merboy! Pretty sure it works like that anyway XD And well, relationship-wise it's a bit tricky. You don't really get to see this during their childhood years though. They went down some pretty different paths.

All of them? XD Hm... So.. Rick and Esmond? Raize/Marshall and Nicole? Sunny and his sister? Oh God, these pairings are so wrong...

No, seriously, tell me. What are your pairings?

Rick/Esmond before I learned they were brothers, pretty sure they're brothers. Little girl and creepy guy with the hat. Totally Sunny and his sister :P. Shadow and Matt. Definitely shipped those two. Can't remember othersss :/

Yeah, Rick and Esmond are brothers. Rick is cursed, that's why he looks so different. Raize/Marshall and Nicole is weird. Actually Raize and anything is weird. Raize is actually 9... or was 9. Marshall however (the boy he possessed) is currently 16. Raize can jump between the different ages though, to make Marshall appear either age. I know you don't ship Sunny and his sister because you never ship relatives XD Unless it's AU or something.

Bonus: Crabs are Dicks



Started off as a doodle and got out of hand~ I have to write the Monday report up today too. Eh, I'll get to it much later on. Turns out I like drawing crabs a lot. On a side note, all the crabs in this comic are bitchy. ALL OF THEM.

Late Monday report WOOO! I decided to give the report three parts. I split it into two last time but I was just going with the flow. Everything I wrote in the paragraphs was related though, and had to do with (a) Extra titbits and information and (b) Information concerning the finished page. I will also add when the next update is to be expected. There may not always be an extras paragraph though.

Page Progression: Pages 3 and 4 have been coloured. They are lacking any sort of speech bubbles though. Page 5 has been started on and is about halfway finished. I have started sketching up page 6. As I mentioned last report, page 7 is almost done because I really wanted to begin on that page beforehand =P

Update: Because of TAFE work I will have to postpone working on the comic until after Thursday. I have two presentations that I have to present. Due to this I will update on Friday.

Extras: I have designed and started sketching up the first chapter page. I'm also thinking of starting on the comic description sometime soon, even though I've planned to begin posting the comic on other sites during June.

Thanks for the support =) I appreciate it. It actually motivates me to do more work on the comic.
I wouldn't have gotten to where I am now without heaps of practice. I'm still hoping I can improve what I can do at the moment though. There's points in time when I like my own work and there are times when I look at it and think it's the most hideous thing I've ever created. I guess that's what pushes me to try out different techniques and styles. Just keep working at it Wink

Have another shneaky upload from TAFE! Thought for a moment yesterday was the update day. Having Monday off really fucks with my mind sometimes. I thought up a description for the comic on the tram too. I'll post it in the next Monday report.
