Stay up all night drawing surprise gift art for my favorite artist on twitter but then chicken out on sending it.

It just felt too weird all of a sudden considering I’ve never ever had a single interaction with them before and we don’t even speak the same language.
Oh well at least I can post it on my tumblr right eheheheh….

Since you asked Sabuchan, it’s Mmyaaym/Mya, srsly like I check out their stuff and curse this language barrier daily @3@

Hello, Chikuto! My friend and I are doing a series of comics for my end of the year project at school, and one of the parts to the project is to find a mentor/expert. We find your comic Clockwork very easy to read and follow, so we were wondering if you had any tips on storyboarding/storyplanning. Our English blogs are ashleydhong on tumblr and biancaramirezenglitcomp on blogspot. Our teacher's blog is also on blogspot, and it is drprestonsrhsenglitcomp13. Thank you for your time! :)

Clockwork is my first comic project, so it’s nice to hear it’s going well! :D But because it is my first, I still have a lot to learn about comics myself. I don’t have a lot of clear and concise rules, but I can share a few rules of thumb that I follow when laying out a page.

1) Try to leave every page on a little cliffhanger/question

This isn’t possible for every page, but try to leave most pages on a cliffhanger/question. Try to keep your reader excited for the next page/update. I tend to get bored with comics if I find myself not looking forward to what’s happening when I turn the page, and this is especially true for webcomics (seeing as they update once a week usually). People running large-scale webcomics want their followers to be looking forward to the update day.

2) Scene switches - leading off

There are a good few ways to switch off scenes - wrapping everything up (seen above). I find it difficult to explain (WHY AM I WRITING TUTORIALS), but it’s very obvious that there isn’t going to be a followup page after that last panel. It’s small, and doesn’t give much leeway for a second page. You can also lead them off by characters leaving, showing a preview of the next scene (I prefer zoomed out, it gives the reader a good idea of what kind of environment they’re about to get into/gets them excited, hopefully).

More tips under the cut!

Gave my dumb OC and outfit from another Tales game seeing as that was sort of a thing with the PS3 ToS remake. Legretta is like the only other woman in Tales who dual wields pistols so LEGRETTA IT IS.
I’m so happy to have my computer back and draw on it ablub blubbb.
