I think I'm trying to kill myself...

Post by redprincess » Fri Jun 17, 2011 3:09 pm

I know I have bouts of depression but I think now I'm actually going to kill myself....

I've decided to submit a story to MICC and make a cosplay for otakon... And I havent started either yet... Lol! So in one months time I need to write a story, design the characters, draw layouts, the story, ink it, tone it, letter it... AND sew a jacket, pants, create the accessories, and a prop staff (I was going to get into a huge project of articulated wings but felt thats better saved for when I have more time and money)................

I'm quite sure I will die. So far the only thing I have accomplished is an idea for my story and an itty-bitty-hat made from felt. Lol!! I'll either die or go insane! Whoo!! Wish me luck, I know I'll need it to survive!

Aww you call me kid even though I'm probably older than you. Lol. I actually I've finished writing it and started on story boards. I just may need to rework a few things. I need to set it aside for today and look at it tomorrow with fresh eyes. For the rest of today I will work on cosplay-ness. Anyone know how to make pants? Haw!

Good luck.

With the making of costumes and comics, I mean. Not with the killing yourself.

Does this page look weird? I've spend aloto f time on that bottom panel but it just looks so wrong. I mean... it doesnt look like the woman in panel 2 (R-L style), and I do have alot of trouble drawing facing forward faces. Any advice would be awesome!

Looks fine to me, I've always loved that type of smile instead of the typical anime smile, cuz come on, who smiles with their eyes closed. D< ah shit... there's only like a little more than a month for the deadline @_@ I wish I never had to sleep...

I had originally drawn her that way, but I didnt like it face forward so I tried it this way, but it looks like two different people.

I think the problem might be that the face is too long or too narrow in the last panel.

Her shoulder in the third panel is also a little wonky.

I think I may try redrawing it on separate paper and if I like it better I'll merge it on the computer. As for her shoulder in that panel, it doesn't matter too much, most of that will be covered with a word bubble. lol.

Page one inked and toned!

My hand hurts like hell after drawing those trees (took over 2 hours) and the second panel I traced, but I still like how it came out.

Nice! The pain was worth it, I think. ;)

The trick now, I think, is to make sure your other panels hold up against your traced panel in terms of realism, proportions, and detail.

The inked page looks good, just keep it up with the other pages so no one flips back and realizes a quality difference. Good luck on the suicide ride!
