Just figured I'd update on how things are rolling with this crazy project I've decided to take on.
Characters and plot: Basically in place, though ideas for more events/individuals keep swarming me. Been watching lots of nature documentaries trying to pick up interesting tidbits to throw into the story, so this has led to some interesting plot points that I did not expect. Due to this, the comic may be a bit darker than I initially intended. I am currently thinking I might be approaching it way too seriously, hah. xD I love a good joke, but man, this comic so far is pretty much srs bisnis. Maybe I should look into that.
Comic layout: Not even started. I am trying to focus on getting the script/plot put all in order before I worry about page layout and how I'm going to even tackle this. Do I just redraw a bunch of rectangles each time? Make a movable layout out of shapes in PS? What is easiest? No idea. I do think I have the basic look of the comic ironed out though. And as far as techinque goes I'll probably stick to doing everything but the coloring in Open Canvas 1.1 (yep. The good old 2005 free version). It is the program I have worked in the most and feel very comfortable in. I hope to achieve a similar level of comfort in Photoshop one day, but for now the only thing I'll be doing in PS is slapping on some color and maybe minor lighting adjustments. I'm reaaaaallly unsure about that program as I have no idea how to use the brushes and tools to create non-cheesy looking effects. But hopefully this project will help me flex my PS muscles a bit.
Also, still no idea what I'm going to name it. I'm hoping something will come out of the dialogue/plot and grab me, screaming frantically, "ME. ME. PICK ME." Other than that, I got nothin'. 'tis the nameless comic. About lions. But not TLK. But sort of. But not really.
