Thank You :-) This one is the first of two comicbook projects I'm working on, and by the looks of it, it will probably be the one that I'll be finishing last..

There's several ways of starting a new picture. If it's for a comcbook like this one, it helps alot if the main story has been written..which I did last year.
A new image can be sparked by a feeling or listening to rock or heavy metal music to mention a few things :-)

The way I love the most is to paint a small part of something, and the expand the canvas and add stuff that fits here and there until You have a finished large picture in the end. :-)

Hehe....Greek hip hop, that must be something. :-)

I've never been a sucker for lineart myself either...I hate being confined to those inked streaks :XD:
I've had a few jobs where I had to color/shade lineart and it almost killed me...there's not much that can compare itself to the lovely smudge tool in PS :love: :XD:

yeah you tell me...... i had some problems with it too. differen shades can make a corect lineart look really clappy and wrong! O_o Still searching for the right balance of it!:D
Long live liquify and smudge tool!!! Yayyy! hahaha

på norsk nå : Kommer tegningene i tegneserien til å ligne på disse? Og har du fått avtale med forlag? Vet at kelpie er interresert i Fantasy, men de virker veldig amatør om du er en like god forfatter som tegner / maler.

Heisann. Sitter faktisk og skriver mere på storyen nå.
har vært i snakk med flere store norske forlag men de virker ikke helt hypp på denne typen serien, de vil aller helst ha blodkopier av pondus/nemi/etc etc som er for den store massen. Virker nesten som de er redde for å satse på noe nytt egentlig.
eneste forlaget som har sagt seg villige så langt er Westwind, som er et lite hoddybasert forlag men med flere kjente serieutgivelser som f.eks Miranda og Varg Veum. Har ikke vært i kontakt med kelpie, får gjøre et søk på dem på nettet og sjekke ut.

Ellers...jo, serien kommer til å bli ganske lik bildene jeg har lagt ut...ikke alle i samme type...stilen vil variere litt etter hendelsene i serien men stort sett slik som jeg har lagd concept bildene.

much better than the WIP one. though the lava does still look like pudding. if ur satisfied with it, then it doesnt matter

Lava should look like pudding...seriously hot pudding :XD:
Other than that, it's a concept and so it does not have to be photo realistic :-)
But thanks for the feedback :-)
