Just so it's clear that I wasn't totally slacking off over the weekend, I'm posting a bit from a series of comic/manga/graphic novel tutorials I'm creating—as much to help me learn more as to share anything I have learned with everyone else.
This is a new story--still under the sea, but with a character from Sea Throne. I'm starting from scratch, with a new drawing book, new style, taking this one step at a time, and documenting each with video and drawing and story building.
Looking at Youtube and all over the Web, there are a bunch of drawing tutorials—so I'm not going to tackle that. I'm also probably at the stage with drawing and painting where I'm learning more than I could ever teach.
One thing I can contribute is the storytelling, taking an existing story, breaking it up, doing the storyboarding, going through the steps, making tutorials out of the processes I've been using for a couple years with Saltwater Witch.
Please send along suggestions, anything you think would be cool to cover in a tutorial.
I want these tutorials to work and appear somewhat polished, so I'm putting some planning into them (yeah, I know, that's unusual). More on all of this later in the week. I'm expecting to post the first one next weekend.
In the meantime...some panels of the opening scene in the works, with the first two showing my main character Nikasia and the style I'm going with for art, characters, and color.
