Comic Test [Aug 2005]  

In case you can't read parts, as my scanner cut off the edges:

Luca: Yesterday, the Government assigned me a new probation officer.

Luca: I've had a lot of officers, but never one of C rank. C rank officers are known for being the most strict and serious. But this guy... he was... different.

Luca: He slipped me a piece of paper... But I feel as though I'm being followed...

Luca: It's probably nothing. I'll just read the thing when I get home.

HELLO, CREEPY STALKER. My favorite part of this is the little stalker dude in the background. Seriously. He's SKIPPING. I wish I had a skipping stalker.

Yeah so uh. I decided to try to start drawing the totalitarian!goverment!story (explanation points are cool) idea I've had as a manga. I did it on marker paper with my Copics, filling up the whole width of the paper, which was stupid, because my scanner isn't wide enough to scan the whole thing. Maybe I should use some of that $431 in the bank to buy a bigger scanner, but that would feel a bit silly as I already have one. I also don't have my lighter flesh tone or blender markers yet, so the skin looks a bit dark and doesn't transition to the white very nicely. Oh well. @_@; It did feel kind of nice to sit around and draw.

Also, I'm not all that happy with the dialogue. I made it up as I went, though (another bad idea :D). And I swear the squares looked straight on paper, lmao. At least the top row still looks okay. The bottom is pretty bad, but when I add more squares to the page I can mold them to that and make it seem a little more balanced, I guess.

This is incomplete, by the way. :D So I may eventually end up posting a full page.

This is absolutely gorgeous, I love the skin coloring and shading! Wonderful job! ^_^

Did you use some special white-out for the higlights in the hair??

Thank you! :D I use white ink + a small brush for highlights on everything. XD;
