Title: Daily Drawing - July 2017
Post by: Gauphastus on June 29, 2017, 11:15:32 pm
You know the drill. Draw and post some crap each day for a month.
Or don't. I'm not a cop.


I'm starting early though, aiming to draw all day tomorrow afternoon since I'm doing a thing.

I have lots of spare time now to create some more nonsense.
I'll also be posting in the discord because why not. Feel free to do the same if the forum isn't your bag.
Good luck.
Merry Christmas.

Still practicing with SAI. Haven't taken full advantage of layers but I'm getting used to them.
Gonna chill and order a pizza. Then more draws.

In case you wanna get caught up on what little has actually occurred.

And now here's two more.
With speech bubbles and written text because I don't do it in paint anymore (SAI has no text tool) and the text colors often clashed with the background.

Spent like four hours remaking this location in sketchup. It's pretty fun. Sketchup is super easy to use but it can be really fiddly. Lots of snapping to axis and nearby shapes when you don't want it to. And stuff later on gets thrown off by your lack of measuring at the start.
But whatever. Close enough for a dumb little bit of fun. Not doing an engineering thesis or whatever.

Next time though I should probably use my drawings to take away more real-world numbers. I made a close approximation but it's off by a bit.
Also I'm probably more than a little bad at perspective but hey.

Here, have a weird angle.

Is that Homestuck on the right?
Title: Re: Daily Drawing - July 2017
Post by: Gauphastus on July 04, 2017, 10:20:40 am
yes

see you used to have to yell and scold the homestuck for not doing anything
and sometimes when it did do something it wasnt interesting
so youd have to yell at it some more
after screwing around for awhile it would do more things
but then it would wander off and screw around again

in the end it did a bit more things but dropped dead unexpectedly
which wasnt very interesting

Changed gears to doing a comic about something else I drew a bit ago. Two.. pages or panels or whatever in so far.
I think two more to go? Possibly three but I might be able to come up with something more compact. Still haven't even written basic dialogue in my head yet.

Pretty fun anyway. I enjoy doing this stuff. It's challenging.

Yeah, dude. Screwing around with color has been pretty fun. I'm still doing sorta basic gradients and stuff but I'm learning more about what works and what doesn't.
Still should probably read up a bit on color theory.

Entire thing up to this point -- http://imgur.com/a/sJXGs

This one page took me ALL DAY because of the format. It's harder than it looks.
Probably took longer because I didn't do any storyboarding or sketching. Only had a fuzzy image in my mind what I wanted, but mostly it was put together one panel at a time.

Came together okay in the end. Could have been better. Careful planning is important.
Also helps if you know how to draw. Which I do but some weaknesses stuck out today during the process.

Title: Re: Daily Drawing - July 2017
Post by: Gauphastus on July 13, 2017, 02:52:04 pm
So I looked around out of curiosity and found that standard printed comic resolution is something like 6.625" x 10.25" at 300 - 600 DPI. It varies a bit here and there but whatever. For the sake of argument lets just go with this for now.
That ends up with an enormous 1987 x 3075 px canvas to work with.

My little panels I post for daily drawings is some random resolution I clicked and dragged to in paint and sorta stuck with, 879 x 687. I've been meaning to change it around to make weirder art, but now I'm considering changing it for a higher res comic, pixel tool and all... which I've also considered changing but bluh whatever.
Dunno though. Nothing in the works yet. Just thinking out loud.

As an example here's a page of the current drawings fitting on a print-sized page.
(http://i.imgur.com/Emv4qSr.png)

Sh(http://)it is enormous.

That's not to say I was thinking of printing this stuff. But at that tiny res, if you think of each drawing as a single panel itself, it'd take me a hundred years to make a 24-page thing. Haha.
I'd also read that if you're instead posting stuff online you generally don't want to go higher than 800 or 900 wide. Height generally doesn't matter.
The reason for this is mobile devices/smaller screens but also because it's just kind of a standard thing. Print is high res/high DPI so it looks good when it's on a physical page.

On the web none of that matters, not as much anyway. Could do just about anything.


But yeah, that's all. Thought it was interesting.
There's a lot of stuff to consider.
I'll probs just wing it like I always do.

Man I wouldn't worry about panels taking ages. Aaron Diaz somehow(????) makes a living out of Dresden Codak, a comic he updates about three times a year.

You just gotta hit the right buttons and that greasy nerd money will come flooding in.
Title: Re: Daily Drawing - July 2017
Post by: Gauphastus on July 13, 2017, 04:11:05 pm
Yeah, no big deal. Really my main focus is just on planning, writing, and drawing this nonsense.
It's pretty fun. Never really done anything like it.

Always wanted to do neato illustrations and detailed almost photographic scenes. I've seen lots of art like that and despite nothing going on it really brings you in.
So I wanna head that way while I continue to learn how to make this thing and draw other dumb crap. :y

EDIT: how the hell is it already 4 PM i havent even done anything today

been a bit sick lately havent had the spirit to try
but im sure ill do a bit before the month is over

word of advice: dont mess with really old air conditioners just get a new one every couple of years
that bitch nearly gave me pneumonia but i settled for what i think is a mild case of laryngitis

also just as a bit of an added bonus i may have to contend with a kidney stone one of these days
im gettin that unmistakable mildly painful poke in the side here and there

just a bit of bad luck gents

but nah not really some but its cool because im cool

(http://i.imgur.com/tFp28Ah.png)

watched some tutorial a guy did talking about a method of learning that yields the most results in the shortest amount of time, for him anyway
based on your personality type and a bunch of other stuff its probably nonsense but he seemed to think it worked
i dont really understand it but basically you draw a head, a good head, and then you draw that head a whole bunch of times while iterating on it
so youre basically drawing the same thing over and over but slightly differently

that was the theme behind todays doodling went line by line right to left started with large brush but slowly ticked it down to a sharper one
also decided to have a bit more fun with the last row
it was an alright day
