Introducing… Webcomic Wednesdays!
Ah, alliteration: Webcomic Wednesday
This image is the main character, Chloe, of a graphic novel I’ve been wanted to make with my sister Allison for over a year now. I’ve been procrastinating like crazy, and I need to get off my butt and just DO it, so I’m hoping that having a place to post weekly updates will help me progress faster.
I’d like to share my process with you. I LOVE comics, but I’m never made one before. I have to learn the best process to ink, color, and letter every page, as well as figuring out the best way to write a story and design a whole world.
Check back each week! This week I have a teaser for you: a glimpse of Chloe and her wardrobe.
I’m also doing a ton of research (because I am a huge nerd and that is how I roll):
I have bought/checked out all of these, so I can tell you how they are as I go.
So far I’ve read Unnatural Talent by Jason Brubaker, which I’ve found really helpful. Brubaker talked a lot about setting up a website and getting traffic, which is helpful for making a blog, not just a comic.
Let’s see, what else…. OH! I’m also starting as an assistant to a graphic novelist (part-time) soon, so I should be learning from that too. I signed an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), but I can still talk about the process, if not the story. That should be pretty exciting. ;)
Anyway, stay tuned for Webcomic Wednesdays!
