I've no idea why I wrote that title, to be honest.

Sometimes when my mind temporarily lapses into insanity, I end up making things like this, and now my brain tells me I need to share this with you guys as well.

Well, I'm more trying to practice the style and everything, but here goes the first picture.

Oh and I have a terrible sense of humor

The image in the spoiler tag has broken link and isn't showing. Why did you put it in the spoiler anyway?

For one standard page comic you should pick the font sizes big enough for all the text to be readable from the image size on deviantart without any downloading. Also, I recommend you to shrink down those huge page margins. The stuff that matters, i.e. your comic should take the space on the page, not some blank areas.

It was working back then.

I agree completely, but I have no idea how to do these kinds of things on Manga Studio. I'll make sure to keep it in mind, though.

I see the link has some token attached, must be a session id or something. Apparently you can't just use a download link for embedding. Urls or the resized images on the deviation pages are fit for embedding or maybe you can use some image hosting to upload it and then embed here.

You can change margins in the Story->Change Page Format Guide, the "Basic Frame" section. You can also set it in the similar dialogue when creating new page through
File->New->Page menu.

And there's always the option to just crop the margins off from the resulting image in some other editor :neco_arc:

As for font sizes, it's more of a trial and error method. Pick a size, see if it's readable on a certain zoom level, if not pick bigger, something like that

Mkay. I tend to go for really small fonts on anything most of the time, so I'll just have to be extra careful.

Double posting is actually a pretty common occurrence, so it's fine. Also, is Archer supposed to be jumping over Shirou, or is it a sort of reflection of the two?

Ah, yes, the textures were kinda the same to make it look sorta consistent. Everything was done so it could kinda help in the post process (the same as I did with the Saber one) so since that's the case, here's the finished one(view image for a larger wallpaper sized picture):

Your art is great, especially with perspective and posing and expressions and stuff, but I would work on the hands. Especially in ^, the fingers are kinda thin and short and just generally don't follow the pretty lines that relaxed hands should make. That right hand (holding the phone) in the Arc one was good though :D

http://puu.sh/9apff.png

And of course because I am too lazy to do real art of my own that is bad anyways I will arrogantly try to correct other peoples'.

http://puu.sh/9aqhj.png

(It really looks like crap anyways sometimes I wonder why I try but then again hands are the funnest to draw I must be a weirdo trying to do hand studies before I master the essentials)


Hope that is helpful though. :3

Mostly finished. :3

It doesn't really matter as long as it's finished enough. You just need it as a reference for the rest of the picture. Like, you don't need the highlights of Shirou's hair to add detail to the buildings. It might be a hassle to keep track of the layers (well it probably already is) but if it takes a really long time to load that psd you'll save time in the end.

Uh, I mean, none of are even close to mostly finished. I still have some additional color shades and tweaking that I need to do once the basics of everything is done, so yeah, I can't really do any optimization until I probably reach 150+, then I can cut down. I do disable the layers when I'm working on others though, that saves performance alot.

I-I can't even imagine dealing with over 100 layers in one picture... Isn't it inconvenient? Looking for right one, constantly switching. I believe this kind of excess fragmentation can also impair the impression of the whole image as a coherent entity.
I usually start to feel uncomfortable as soon as I no longer able to see all the layers in the list without scrolling, and get really annoyed when they reach two-digit number-

No, I had to make another gradient layer for the hair and set it to color dodge. I also needed to draw a few strokes at the edge of the hair to make the transition smoother. It's less of a trick and more of me using the same technique I used for other pictures, but setting the color value to something similar with the background lighting.

Hands could use a little work but that looks amazing otherwise.

why put so much detail into the underwear if you're just going to put clothes on top?

because I can
The better question is: Did I draw the underwear for all my other pictures?

Nope. That's not a better question. Most of your other pictures are landscapes, so that would just be weird.

Landscapes? What landscapes? There are like, only four pictures here with landscapes in them. Alot are pretty much background free.

You'll find out why I did it here after I show the finished product

I found an old sig I never finished. The lineart's done, so I guess I can resume with shading it, huh?
