:star: How to Write Your Own Comic

Finally I got some time to sit down and work on a new article. This one is about breaking up your story in panels and how that is a collaborative effort between the writer and artist since it's key to the narrative of the book.

Check it out at Writing 302: Action in PanelsYou may think this is solely up to the illustrator of the book but in fact it's actually a shared responsibility between writers and pencillers.
Camera Angles and Storytelling through Panels
As a writer it's your job to define the pacing and flow of the page and how your story will reach the readers. The artist's job is to take those directions, execute them as best as he can and apply his vision on top of the writer's. It is a collaborative effort and that's why writers and artists have to keep a constant communication.
Drawing a pin-up is one thing, telling a story through pictures is something else entirely. All your choices have weight and they should mean something, you should be very conscious of every single decision you take as an artist/writer when working on a comic book.
A close up has a very different desired effect than a wide shot for instance, and they each communicate something specific to your readers. So always keep in mind, "What do I want to communicate wi

WATERMARKS - how to make them work for you

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 13, 2010, 9:17 AM


Theft of their art online is indeed artist’s greatest fear. The mere thought of finding someone’s paws all over your precious picture, the idea you painstakingly thought of, perfected, executed and uploaed in order to share in an art communnity, the thought of it being stolen for profit is horrible.
Indeed, there have been many internet sites that stole works of artists on dA and sold them as wallpapers, mobile phone screens and even prints. There have been a few big legal affairs with major corporations stealing artwork at very small resolution (800 px) and then, using their superior equipment, managing to employ it in all their advertising, and that’s just mentioning a few such situations.

Clearly, the need for protecting yor work exists, and no, most of us don’t think that “it would be our honour to be ripped off, it means we are good”.
We know we are good, and we accept appreciation in a form of faves, comments and print requests.

So, how do we protect our work on line?

No system is perfect, and different artists opt for different strategies, or combination of different strategies.

First is to upload your work at low resolution, like 600 px. Obviously, some artists won’t be happy with this, because it won’t do their pictures justice.

The next step is – the dreaded watermark.

DeviantArt has it’s own, and boy, is it ugly and obtrusive! On one hand, it does the job perfectly, there is no way anyone can successfully get rid of it in Photoshop.
But it ruins the look of the picture and it is unforunatelly placed in the centre so often it obscures the subject completely.

In macro, it is really important that we see the subject, otherwise, there is no point in submitting the work in the first place. If your pic is a super-close look at the bug, or a refraction in the drop, and that is completely obscured, forget about it, nobody will be able to enjoy that.

It is also important to mention that when you are submitting the print, you can upload a different source file there, so you can have your deviation show with embedded watermark, and your print will be clean because you will use the file without the watermark for that. This will achieve the same as dA watermark, which shows on display, but not on the final print.

Actually making your own watermark is really easy.

Open photoshop and click on File – New Layer. Make it 1900 px wide, 1382 px high, with “transparent” background (I have really large files, 12 mpx camera, so my watermark is big, but you can always reduce it later, depending on how big your jpeg is).

When you have a transparent layer opened, select black for a foreground colour, click on a little bucket-tool and click over the transparent layer, this will paint it black so that you can more easily see your watermark at this stage.

First, select the button that says T – that’s your text layer. Holding down Fn and Alt keys, using a numberpad on the right hand side of your keyboard, type 0169. As soon as you release the Fn and Alt keys, you will get a copyright symbol.

To write out your name, or anything you want, choose the font you like, and design your watermark.
For the watermark as big as this one, your font size should be around 130 pt, but obviously, that depends on the font you are using.
Also, you can use a symbol you created to make a watermark, in our examples below you will see how well that can work too.

Keep the opacity of your text layer at 100%.

When you are happy, do not merge layers, rather, save the watermark document in separate layers as a PSD document, so that you can easily use it and change the size of the text later.
Save it somewhere you will later easily find it and name it “watermark”.

Now open one of your favourite jpegs you were going to upload to dA (or elsewhere).
Open your Watermark file on a separate layer. Make sure you highlight in blue T (text) layer. Using a little arrow for moving things around (usually the top button on the lefthand side), move the watermark text from watermark window to your jpeg window. Release left click and the watermark layer should be copied and visible on top of your jpeg.
Now adjust the opacity of your watermark. Depending on the colours of your jpeg, and where you want to put the watermark, you’ll need different opacities, but I usually use between 20 and 30%.

If you need to rotate your watermark, having the T layer highlighted, click Edit – Transform – Rotate and change the orientation any way you like. You can also warp it and do all sorts of fun things with it.
Also, you can easily move it around the picture and position it anywhere you want.

Once you are happy, click Layer – Merge layers whick will embed the watermark in your jpeg.
You might want to now click on File – File Information. On the left hand side you have a meny, browse through it, but you might want to go to IPTC Status and enter your information, copyright and usage terms.
When you are done, save it as (name of jpeg) coyrighted.

Now you are ready to upload your jpeg to dA knowing that most likely, nobody will bother to try to rip it off, while at the same time you had the full control of exactly the type of watermark you’ll have, and where on your picture you will place it.

The general points I try to leave out for people often get eclipsed by larger journal entries, so I'm going to start putting that first.  

Are you REALLY Ian Flynn?  The comic guy?
Yes I am.  You can check out my website and my body of work at www.BumbleKing.com

Awesome!  I love your art in the comics!
That's flattering - but I don't do the art.  I'm the writer.  I compose the manuscripts the art team uses to produce the book.  I've done concept art, though.  Some you can find here on dA, some you can find in the graphic novel collections.  I'm a decent doodler, but I leave the REAL art to the skilled professionals.

Read my fan-fic!  Look at my fan-art!  Use my fan-concept!
No, nope, nuh-uh.  This would open me up to allegations of intellectual theft.  There's a lot of really creative fans out there, and they produce a lot of cool stuff.  What if I accidentally re-used someone else's idea down the road?  Some folks would be flattered, others would be enraged I "stole" from them.  For my protection - and to protect the fandom - I limit any fan-material to fan-art of official characters.

I want to talk to you!
I wish I could keep in touch with everyone, but I really don't have the time.  Your best bet is to voice your thoughts on my forum - www.BumbleKing.com/forum.  Comments and notes through dA will be read, but I don't know when, and I don't know if I'll reply.  I can only keep up so many avenues of correspondence, y'know?

So... why are you on dA then?
Mostly to keep up with old friends, some artists I like, and to share some concept art from time to rare time.

I love the comics!  I share them with my friends on dA!
The enthusiasm is appreciated, but you're breaking the law.  People have to buy the books to get the content.  That money becomes profit for Archie and ensures they keep producing the book and I keep my job.  Putting up scans for free loses Archie money.  And there's the whole illegal angle.  So if you've got full scans up, I'd appreciate you taking them down.  (Not like I can do anything about it, but still...)

I HATE you.
Sorry to hear that.  Say what you will, but keep it civil.  If you decide to be vulgar and/or profane, I'm hiding your comment.  It'll stay there - you'll know I'll have read it - but I won't force other people to endure your foul language.

And now the moment you've been waiting for...

Sally!  WHY?!
I can't really comment on it much right now since it's only a rough teaser image and part of a larger game plan.  But suffice it to say: Sally (and the SatAM cast) are old, out-dated, niche characters.  If they're to survive, they need to mesh with the way the Sonic franchise looks today.  There's a lot of rumors flying around (some hilarious, some baffling) so stop to ask where's the source of someone's rumor is.  If "they heard" it's bunkus.  If "Ian said!" they better have a link.

Just keep these things in mind:
- does she still have her auburn hair?  Yes.
- does she still have a vest? Yes.
- does she still have boots? Yes.
- is she still a brown chipmunk? Yes.

Pants aren't going ruin her character.  She'd be a pretty shallow, terrible character if that were true.

You're just trying to kill SatAM forever you hateful SEGA-lover!
No.  If I wanted to kill that aspect of the franchise, it'd be dead.  I could've wiped it out at "Genesis."  I could have Dr. Eggman nuke them all in one panel and never speak of it again.  These characters have survived solely thanks to the Archie books, I'm a fan of them, and I'd like to preserve them for as long as I can - however I can.

Then why all the random game tie-ins?  Why interrupt it with the crossover?
You know I have no control over that, right?  I just write the stories.  I have a lot of creative freedom, but these properties don't belong to me.  When SEGA or Capcom says "Do this story for us, and do it now" that's what happens.  That's just the nature of the business.  I'm not the big decision maker - I'm just part of the process.

Can't you just tell them "No, not right now?"
Sure we could.  And then we'd all be fired and the comics would be canceled.  I much prefer to have fun side-stories and awesome crossovers instead, don't you?

ALL RIGHT! the contest is over and now its time for me to go over the winners! I will announce them in a different journal~

I've been itching to throw one but could never come up with a good theme, but it hit me on the way home from a long drive away from home.

OKAY SO HERE IT IS. In my verse the kings and queens that are chosen go by blood, so even though Kiara is married (mated w/e) to Kovu, she is still technically the ruler of the pride lands. So this means she has to teach her sons the way to run the kingdom. And even though Roho is the heir, she decides to take Ashiki along too, just in case something happens to his brother.
Oh Im rambling but okay here it is, the theme is of course Kiara teaching her sons the way of the circle of life, BUT there has to be a caption , line,or something of the lyrics OF the circle of life in the picture or story. I mean come on imagine an older more wiser, badass Kiara singing the circle of life to her sons.
(So pretty much just her teaching her sons the lesson of the circle of life in some way ((and if you can't really fit in a lyric or mention of the song in the story/picture feel free to use it as a title lol))

SO HERE ARE THE RULES.
*you can either enter a picture, story or both (so like a dev and the summery a story w/e)
*No bases!!!!
*if its a picture, it could be a mini comic too if you prefer
(all up to you lovelies)
*no oc's, but flashes of the other characters ( simba nala kovu dafina vituo vitani blahblah are fine)
*You don't have to ask me to join, if you want to go right ahead
* and please use the colors for kiara in this pallet!

malistlk.deviantart.com/art/My…

And now on to the winnings!
First place: Two full color full bg pictures of your characters (maximum of two per picture) OR four customs!
Second place: One full color full bg picture of your characters (maximum of two) OR three customs!
Third place: One picture, flat color no bg of your character OR a custom!

*EDIT* THE CONTEST WILL END NOVEMBER 20TH!!!
(extended the due date again, last time I promise!!!)

Thanks to everyone who has entered so far! 2 days until the drawing!!

So, from the beginning I'll admit that this is just me trying to get more watchers. Yeeeah. O.o

To enter you must-

-Watch Me (Or Already Be Watching Me)
-Favorite this Journal
-Write an Entry in Your Own Journal About this Giveaway and Link Back to It

Pretty easy, right? Right. Comment once you've done all this so I can go check.
The winner will be randomly selected on August 15. :)



Technically if you enter you get a commission too since my signature says I give commissions for watches. Send me a note to ask about it.

And, the main reason I don't have a premium membership right now is I don't see the point with 7 watchers.

That's all. :D Good luck.

2. It must be a new drawing. You can't enter an old drawing you've already submitted to deviantART. (aka, previous fanart, and art I've requested/commissioned in the past is not allowed.)
3. I'm looking for accuracy in his design and personality. (make sure his cutie mark is facing the right way!!! The arrow points at his tail.)
4. I'm looking for creativity and effort! ^3^ (You can draw in "canon show style", but it's not really creative; unless you can find a way to make it creatively unique)
5. No drawing off of a base, tracing over any artwork, or using a "create a model or character" website
6. Digital and traditional art forms are both accepted.
7. He must be kept in pony form (Please don't draw him as a human or other animal).
8. Share this journal so more people enter (chances for extra prizes).
9. You can enter as many drawings as you want! (but you can only win once!)
10. When you're done, upload it to deviantART and mention me in the description (mention it's my OC and that it's an entry for my contest) so I can see it. Please don't put it in Sta.sh or delete it later because I need to favourite it (I want to feature all of the drawings later so please don't delete it after the contest.)
11. The contest ends March 29th. That gives you about 3 weeks from now~ THE CONTEST END DATE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO APRIL 13TH (because that's Silver's birthday).
12. NSFW is allowed (to a degree. You can draw risque stuff but nothing too intense, please.)
