hey everyone. me again i have completed my submision now after contrast editing etc etc i planned the final page, and am happy with it. :) the pages are in order teheh i know i should really keep on working on how to make this better, but i feel its finnished and am going to move onto editing my two page comic. the last image is just an example of how i planned out the final image via some of the thumbnails
O f stuff posted so far, there are three categories:
acceptable as is: Roo's work
acceptable but could do with refining: Godman (and other peoples work)
unacceptable: what's left
Why have I cryptically written "other people's work" and "what's left"
Because like Murray, I feel it extremely awkward and painful to have to comment about work that people should be analyzing and changing themselves, before rushing to post up! Unless they are willing to make substantial modifications as in the Niovi.
It doesn't mean it's always getting better, but it does mean that that person is really exploring the visual possibilities!
the originals and the edited ones.. i ve already scanned the first 2 but the last one i finished it last night and i wont be able to scan and work on it till thursday.
i tried to darken the frames so the backround is less busy but i think that something s still wrong...
any comments bout it?

Milan's already noted that the type looks too clinical in this picture and suggested drawing the type? I can't make my mind up with the back cover to whether if it needs to be revised completely or only slightly? I can't decide if it's the drawing itself which is weak or if it's the composition? Like the front cover, the sky needs detail added! Thanks! ...bit of an onslaught tonight!
Slightly edited pages 1 and 2 with new fonts in place of the old favourite cooper blk! Plus page 3, page 4 will be up tomorrow when I scan it in. It won't be the end of the story as with the experimental side of this ink soup I'm contemplating making the story arc over another 2 pages, but you'll have to wait til tomorrow to see what I mean (suspense!). In terms of what I've already concluded, after looking at Luke Kennedy's work I think I need more stark contrasts, also drawings in some panels aren't as consistently strong, but I'm happy with the story as it stands. These are my feelings, so was hoping people would like to confer with their own, I know chiu will have plenty to say, but please be as honest as you like, even if to say re-draw it all!

obviously you are restricted to the A4 page format, but if you wish to cross it for an A3 spread; make narrow panels like cherry; make strange nonsensical sequences; go portrait or landscape; Longer stories also accepted! - BUT WE STILL EDIT ON QUALITY!! First quality control this Wednesday - I will start putting the pages that get in into indesign!

Hey guys me again
since its 4 pages each can i submit a two page illustration thingie.
:) i know i left the bottles purple on the second image. i forgot to convert them Duh me. lol the story in it is pretty obvious.
but i guess it dosnt matter since it prints black and white anyways.
I know I put as a target to finish this by tomo but us usual I m not done..anw no hurries this time :)
This is the 1st spread of the new interpretation of Oh Deer! and it s going to be 3 spreads afterall (hope that’s ok..)
The frames round are considered to be the bleed that’s why I made them pretty thick (2cm). The trees in the middle actually i had that idea since I started my picture book bt never had the time to test/draw so they were left as just an idea and now I finally found an excuse to test whether that would work as a frame or not..something I haven’t decided yet..mbe they are too overwhelming and shade the story which is what actually matters..?
Anw..as I said this is the 1st finished spread..these are the rest, they re just rough outlines but it gives a general idea of how the story will be. I thought of posting them before proceeding to “colouring” (which takes aages to do) to get opinions on the panels. I drew n re-drew over till I got mainly the frames ok but if anyone has an opinion about them for getting them better please tell me...(preferably before I start working on them!).. (um from the roughs the last one is suposed to be first and the rest are at the right order..)
P.S. they are a/3 so i had to take a photo of them so forgive the not-so-great quality of these pics..i ll scan it tomo when i going in..

here today, gone tomorrow, for ink soup 4, it was a last minute decision for me to submit for it, and i did it all in one night! phew ahah
i painted it all straight into photoshop via tablet with my steady hand. :)
it was great for solid inked lines. and so very fun. drawing it digitaly straight into PS was a huge advantage for me, i could work over drawings until i felt it worked right. and i could zoom riight in to get to some nitty drawing details.
and yes chui that IS you. and that IS me rearranging your face. it seemed to fit well. its a response for calling me dim-witted :) well. any suggestions on how it could be changed. i think i like the overall compositions, but i feel the second page separates itself from page one in terms of style. but i think i just get away with it

Toastie-O is my new entry for the next ink soup. I'm planning to add colour, but obviously leaving black and white for ink soup. There's 5 pages in this story as I'm directing my comics to general comic submission guidelines (minimum 5 page sequential art). Also a bold move moving from my handwriting to a recognised font, can't make the final decision to whether it works or not? Let me know what ya think! (Dont't be shy, I've handed out a lot of criticism so lay it on me)
