I draw/ink/letter traditionally, then scan and add colors digitally. I don't ink digitally because it takes more time, since I'm really obsessive with my lines I can Ctrl+Z for hours until I get the lines I want XD
Also, having most of my comic work done away from a computer means I'll get less distracted by the internet, and so I finish my comics faster! which is important for someone without much drawing time.
As an added comment to have "character voices"--some people like to write a character's voice or accent by writing words differently (basically, writing the way they sound), I guess it works but for me it's really hard to understand dialogues like this, like I have to read them 2 or 3 times to fully understand it, which is kind of tiring :/ maybe it's just me but yeah, just putting that out there xD
I know what you mean, English isn't my first language either so I worry that my dialogues aren't natural enough :'D I guess it's mostly practice and surrounding yourself with the language as much as possible? Personally I think the internet (forums, blogs, social networks, etc) has helped me get a more "natural" grasp of English, while reading books in English has helped me get a more correct writing and a better vocabulary.
Your English sounds (looks?) very well to me, by the way, but since I'm not a native speaker I can't tell how useful that is xD
I'm also from Santiago, Chile! Kyo was right, you're not alone xD
Only 1% speaks English? really? that's...very few people D: I guess it depends on the level of English we're talking about, I know a good bunch of people who know the basics but not many who have a more advanced level.
Monday:On an interesting side note, without going into specifics, the comic I was assigned yesterday was one I'd seen around for a while without reading, because it never looked like my genre, but now that I've (almost) finished reading it, I really like it.
Awesome side-effect of exchanges is that I get out of my reading comfort zone and discover some pretty cool stuff.
The exact same thing happened to me with my assigned comic! I had never stopped to read it before and it's really good x'D hahaha
To be honest I had NO IDEA I'd have such a busy month when I signed up for this...lots of tests and stuff thrown at me, then a workshop out of town for a whole weekend, plus TA work...I set some time to work on mine tonight though, so expect me to be sending something soonish :P EDIT: my pic's basically done, but I'll have to scan it tomorrow! I'll try to get it sent as soon as possible :)
(I might have to take a break from exchanges after this one...I love exchanges but good grief I'm a busier bee than I thought)
I originally started Postcards in Braille in 2011, did a bit less than 10 comics and then went into an indefinite hiatus. I decided to reboot it in early 2014, with a better structure and consistency (the old one was kind of a mess). I kept the website and layout, but erased all strips and started from scratch. I even redrew an old strip I liked, and I plan on doing that again eventually.
Centcomm:Yep .. the pumpkin can be carved or just sitting off to the side .. And this is just a cute thing to add I think :D although im sure all you hyper talented folks will come up with some mind blowing things.
This is the PERFECT EXCUSE to draw characters in silly costumes and I'm gonna take full advantage of that!!!!
