heya name is Terri , used to be called Rick - if you happen to see the "RH" sig thats mine too ...
also have a Co-writer / editor Krissy
hiya im a refugee from comic gen , but i decided that i didnt like .. things there. so i moved my comic to here - yes its a poser/Daz studio comic but dont let that fool you - in its hay day i had a frack ton of hits and fans , even fan art WOOT ,
first off - yes i AM a artist over 30 years of training - thanks to a idiot in a truck i can no longer draw so this is what i have to work with, the reason i put this in was that most peeps go Oh its a Poser comic EW YUCK LOSER but thats not a good way to look at it , we each use the tools we are able to and have access too - some people use bloody stick figures others sprites , at the core its all art .. and story and Datachasers is a big one - its also a RPG game universe played with the spacemaster rule set
so give it a chance, had one gal at CG do the ew yuck poser comic and so we chatted a bit then she realized oh hey thats a real person , and actually "read it" *gasp* and found out she liked it , i bloody framed the apology letter LOL . anyway thank you for allowing me to have my comic here - ill gladly let CF put a add on my page ( im tryin to figure how to get my donate button back up and my cast page .. * sigh * i dont know carp about HTML if anyone knows how please let me know - ive searched the forums and so far not hitting anything
This is actually very nicely done. :D And you're right, all styles can be art, but only if the artist lets them be. I have seen some terrible poser comics before, and some great ones. I haven't read much (you've got alot of pages o_o)but I do expect this to be a good one!
So welcome to comicfury, and hope you make some great friends :)
edit: though I am curious..How does making comics like this work..? How do you get/make the sets and characters?
First off, welcome! Secondly, I'm glad to meet you, Terri. :D Nice name change, BTW. Thirdly, I can tell you have an artistic eye, and once drew, as I don't feel any stiffness in your characters, which is the biggest problem with those kind of comix. I'm sorry you can no longer draw...
actually the figures and such are "blanks" i then add textures and reshape the figures as i need - clothing and such is culled from DAZ 3d
and sets / vehicles and other stuff is eather custom made by me ( the simple stuff ) or premade then i mod the carp out of it ,
it can take days to make a figure or set .. but once its done i can reuse the figure/ item over and over so intially the time sink is huge as is the work involved , but before that story then art then re-editing and stuff assemble in photoshop letter and then my editor rips it apart and re-does all the text , shes a far better writer than me - im just the idea person. i would say its actually MORE work than a drawn comic and i would love to do that again - but alas im not up to it yet -
but im working on it . doing it this way does have its limits , the stuff in my head is diffrent than what im able to use so i make do .. hope that helps answer the question , and good to meet you :)
