I began reading comics as a hobby with webcomics and reverse-engineered my tastes to include mainstream published work. I hope to be able to comfortably draw my own comics and write my own stories.

If you see any Pandadrakes anywhere else it's probably not me.


I don't do requests or commissions. Sorry!
Interests
So I started drawing comic pages in batches again.

Batching is drawing a set of pages to completion instead of working on them one-by-one.

I used to do this for all of my previous comics, but instead of batching them properly, I would just draw the whole damn thing, then uploaded it weekly while pretending to be timely.
I've done this for The Rutherford Case, Wolf Country: Gremlins, and that very old Wolf Country Prologue comic (both here).
It's a very webcomic-unfriendly process, especially if you can't devote a whole lot of time to such things.

For the current comic I'm working on, I have been roughly uploading the pages at the same time I am finishing them. This makes pages appear to take longer but they are uploaded somewhat regularly instead of years of silence, then suddenly comic.

This means for my current process, I basically work on each page to completion one-by-one. Instead of working on layouts, inking, then tones for multiple pages.

IMO when it comes to getting stuff done, batching is probably a better process for workflow. It gives me more flexibility when working and is a bit easier for consistency and coherence.
So far I haven't paid much attention to that, because I prioritize improving my artwork, but yeah, people being able to read your comics easily is important. 

This journal is basically a convoluted way of saying, "I finished a page, but didn't upload it because I drew them out of order, lmao".

I ought to draw a title page at some point for at least one of my short comics. I have no idea what to put in it though. Graphic design is not my passion.

I came to your page on a google search based on my dissatisfaction on WhyAreWerewolfDesignsSoLame and, DoesAnyoneActuallyDesignGoodWerewolves. I was not disapointed v___v  I hope you continue Wolf Country because the humor of werewolf troubles is right up my strange niche area of what I find amusing.

I want to know why jam doesn't have a tail.?I think if he has a tail, he will get more adorable.(づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ

Its a design choice I made specifically so that he wouldn't be too adorable and hard to take seriously. If he had a tail he would be 100% cute puppy and it would be difficult to tell certain stories. Especially since I already like to draw silly things a lot.

 I find that overall people who like werewolves/animals/furries find tails on wolf characters aesthetically pleasing. Not adding a tail is more suggesting of an unnatural creature, which is what I want.

 Also, giving werewolves a human torso structure (or a bodybuilder body) and a tail is very common is various comics/movies/tv/cartoons I've seen and, personally, I am kind of bored of it.

An important thing also I want to enforce is that Sam isn't a cute dog, he's a transformed human (who happens to look like a cute dog).
 His transformed features are meant to be analogous to his human features more or less.

I used to get this question multiple times, and to be clear, I am not going to add a tail to Sam.
 Maybe in a different setting where the depiction of werewolves is meant to mean something different, I might pin the tail on the werewolf. But it's not going to be in Wolf Country (the current title of the story that Sam belongs to).
