It does look nice. Rather professional I might add.
What city is that skyline of? I'm positive that's a photograph.
Mekari's avatar
yep thats NYC though I am not saying that the comic takes place in NYC

No, it takes place in ByBerry. It says so right there!
But skylines are hard to draw. Of course you'd use a photogragh.

It's not that they are hard to draw but I like to juxtapoze real world photographs with the cartoony drawings and if you do it well then you can barely tell and it actually looks like the characters exsist within that space. I did not do this very well in page 7 but I believe page 8 is the best example.

I suppose it could work. You might need to add an effect or filter to make it seem less obvious, but yeah! Only thing is you need to color your people so they look like they belong, such poor lighting conditions and the like.

oh yes I edit the photos a great deal

Well Byberry is a real abandoned mental hospital(was torn down last year) so you could say that the comic takes place in Philly but there are plenty of photo backgrounds in the comic so far, some in Philly, NYC, Berlin, LA and some city in Idaho

You have a lot more real-world referances than I first thought. (Totally clueless...no idea.)

Sooo...I'm just going to assume the entire story takes place somewhere in Penn's Woods unless you specify elsewhere.
Mekari's avatar
Well thats the thing I don't want to specify. I wanted to use Byberry because of how scary it was and it was a place where alot of kids hung out and partied and I liked the idea of that

I'm sure there's many places named Byberry. I'll have to look into that sometime.
Actually when I first read it I assumed the place was fictitious, like Gotham.
