From storyboard to finished

From storyboard to finished

Storyboard is an essential tool when making a comic, and it makes the process so much easier. In a nutshell, storyboard is an image script and it’s mainly used by movie makers and animators. But it’s a great tool for comic artists, too.

I used to hate storyboarding because I felt that it took so much time from the actual comic but then I realized how much easier it made my life. When you really…

Original character: Merry

I decided to redraw one of my original characters because I haven’t made a full body painting in a long time, and I also wanted to make a bigger painting after so many portraits.

I have a couple of original characters who I paint from time to time – not including my comic characters. Merry is one of my favourite of my OCs, so I chose to paint her. She’s a tough girl, kicking anyone’s ass with her…

Mimmu’s comic font

Mimmu’s comic font

Yes, my font is finally ready! I made it especially for my own comic stories because I don’t like to use ready made fonts. They feel out of place in a comic because everything else in it was made by you – except the letters. Most of the time the ready made fonts don’t even suit the comic’s visual style. The font is an important part of a comic too. It’s not the main point but it shouldn’t be…

Devil in disguise

I decided to paint one of my old portraits again, called “Devil in disguise” (from 2010). I try to do this kind of thing at least once a year to see what kind of progress I’ve made and how my skills are developing. I think I’ve come pretty far in the last four years. Gotta keep up the hard work, it pays off!

Character design

Character design

My next step in my Here I Am-project was to redesign the characters. There are three characters in the story: Jonathan, Claude and Mitch. Jonathan and Claude are the main characters. I didn’t spend much time back in 2010 when designing them for the first time. The only thing I remember was that I wanted Jonathan to have dark hair and Claude to be light-haired.

I was reading lots of manga at the…

Project: web comic

Project: web comic

… or more like a web short story (comic).

Here I am - WIP 1

I’ve wanted to try and make a web comic for a long time, and now I finally have the chance of doing so! Today I happened to find one of my old comic stories which I drew back in 2010, called “Here I am”. It was a short comic I made in a comic class in TAMK (Tampere University of Applied Sciences). I had saved one of the comic leaflets I printed for the…
