TZH Webcomic Tutorial by Ashwings TZH Webcomic Tutorial by Ashwings
Hey everyone! Have a tutorial! Enjoy!
It's pretty it may take a while to load^^ I cover everything...I think. Yes.

It takes me, on average, 6-8 hours to make a strip. Sometimes longer because I can be REALLY picky with certain things, especially with the line-art. So it varies-- also this had a far less complicated background, so that cuts down time considerably!

I love you <3
Did this technique for my first college graphics course intro assignment! It was a bit (make that A LOT) more shading than my lazy self ususally does by such nice work. I have been a fan for years and hope that my little cartoons can become HALF as good compared to yours one day.

Fantastic tutorial! Thank you so much for sharing your expertise. I couldn't even imagine trying to figure all this out on my own!
Faylinn-Night Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Oh my gosh. This is amazing! That you for taking time to give us a few pointers in this area. Seriously. :'D I'm just beginning to maul over the idea of making a comic, but I have no idea where to start. It's a bit overwhelming. There's so many things you can do! I was actually dreading the idea of having to ink every panel I drew (I'm a sucker for traditional art and royally suck at inking digitally), but you've shown me that pencil art can work for line art just as well!

Now I really need to save up so I can afford Painter. I got to play around with Painter11 for a bit when I first got my tablet two years ago. It was amazing. I was sad when my trial expired. D:

Poser looks like an amazing program! Where did you get it? I guess I could look that up myself, huh? If it cost money, i sure hope it doesn't cost that much. Heh.

Aside from all of that, I love your art style. That I do. wonderful work! :heart:

I have poser 8 for the Mac right now, it's not over the top expensive as far as programs go, I got mine from amazon! [link]
If you are still in school and are in an artistic field you can get discounts on software :)
ElwenAldalinde Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2010
This is a great resource! I'll have to try that trick with just scanning in the pencils :) Inking can be so tedious...
wunleebuxton Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010

LeafOfSteel Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010  Professional General Artist
Thanks for that. A lot of useful tips. I coule NEVER be so organized. Umm... maybe THAT'S why I never succeed in making comics... :)
PintofAl Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
