Much news!

Sat Feb 4, 2006, 9:35 AM
Hey snakeys, long time no see!  Very busy over here.  Here are some updates:

**I keep meaning to post this:  My PC is all SCREWY and I can't reply to comments!  It just tells me there's an error. So if you ask me something in a comment, I may not be able to get back to you. If it's really important, just note me!***

My hamster Sherlock Holmes died, which was terribly sad for me. :*(  Now I have two mice, Frankie Zan and King of Prussia (like the city in PA).  KOP is a very tame mouse but Frankie Zan will require months of training.  She's a total nervous freak.

On Tuesday I'll be in NY at Grand Central in Vanderbilt Hall, along with my friend G-chan, working at Imaginasian's booth (they have a promotional booth up for the Tokyo International Anime Fair in New York and we're working as booth girls in cosplay outfits).  If you're in NY that day, please stop by and say hello to us!

I've also decided to attend Phoenix Comicon in September...anyone here go to that con?

Currently making a WICKED costume that's going to take at least until June to finish (I've been working on it since December) but it'll be so worth it!  It's not difficult like some kind of giant mech or anything, just requires several thousand hours of patient needlework.  I'll be taking it to San Diego Comicon.  Also have a few new costumes to post in the new few weeks after Katsucon.

And I'll try to post some page art from book two this week...just have to fix it so the tones don't moire when I shrink it down to put on DA. XD  See you guys soon!

Comic Drawing Stoofs

Thu Dec 15, 2005, 8:06 PM
:iconbrokenaoshi: has requested I talk about how I make a comic book.  I will do this now for the little snakes, that they may know what goes into comic-making.  Also I'm too exhausted to do anything else.

First off, I work for TOKYOPOP Inc, a publishing company in California that produces both translated manga graphic novels and original graphic novels that they contract american artists and writers to create.  I both write and draw my own series, Bizenghast, which is currently a four-volume series.  What this means is that I write the story, make it into a script and draw all the artwork plus the cover.  I don't letter my own book, however...all the speech bubbles and inside text are done by my letterer.  My first book was mostly toned (shaded on the computer using ComicStudio) by :iconyuugichan:, but for subsequent volumes I do the toning myself.

Here's how each volume goes down:

I have a piece of computer paper upon which I've drawn 25 small boxes about an inch and a half tall.  I xerox this sheet so I can use it to draw in little tiny pencil pictures of each page I'll draw for my book, called thumbnails.  These let me know what each page will look like before I draw it, so I don't mess up on the bigger versions.  As I draw the pages, I stamp the tiny thumbnail off on my thumbnail sheet with a stamp that says "MARTY!"  That way I can look at the thumbnail sheet and know how many pages I've done so far for that chapter.  I usually like to do between six and seven chapters a book, with about 22-30 pages each.

I draw each page at approximately 15.875 inches by 11 inches, then scan them into the computer and shrink them down to about 7.687 by 5.5.  They have to be a precise size so they'll print correctly in the book.  Then I tone them in ComicStudio, which is a japanese program that puts professional tones onto each page.  It works a lot like photoshop, only instead of colors it has different sizes and patterns of tones.  I prefer not to use patterned tones for the most part...I only use three to five shades of grey.

After all this is done I save the files as TIFFS.  Then I match up each page to the script and make corrections to the script wherever needed.  After that I make a tiny copy of each page and put it onto one big document and, using a pen tablet, draw small red word balloons and text boxes onto the small low-res pages.  This is the balloon guide that the letterer will get so he knows where to put the word balloons.

I send all of these things directly to my editor by using an FTP upload program.  Everything gets sent over a little at a time as my deadlines occur, into a folder on Tokyopop's server just for my book.  I usually average around 20 pages every two weeks.

After all that, my editor goes over the whole story in its entirety, along with a lot of other people at Tokyopop, who make suggestions as to what needs to be changed or clarified. I do a lot of revisions that can take months, depending on what changes need to be made or if some pages look rushed or don't fit with the story.  I usually end up drawing at least twenty or thirty new pages of art and subtracting around ten original pages from the story.  I also draw a lot of extra art for ads, interviews, inserts into the book for title pages, display art for bookstores, etc.  Lots of different stuff.  

The cover is sort of an ongoing thing throughout the book's creation.  For volume two I've gone through three fully painted covers so far.  I work with my editor to determine what's the best color scheme for the cover and which design will work best.  A lot of factors come into play for the front and back covers, such as whether the logo will obscure the art, how the art fits next to the brand bar, where the text can fit over everything, etc.  

People ask me if I get to control 100% of what goes on and in the book, and obviously I have the input of my editor Aaron, his boss and his boss' boss to consider.  A lot of kids going into the business worry they won't have total control over their work. But I'm like, why would you want to have that?  Do you really think you know better than an entire publishing company?  What seems like a fantastic plot to you may be confusing as hell to someone else. And what seems like a great cover idea to you may be obscure, cluttered and ugly to your buyers.  So don't get wrapped up in "controlling" everything.  Because you need other people's input to know whether your story is really as solid as you think and whether your art works as well as you think it does.

However I will say that TOKYOPOP gives me an enormous amount of free reign in my books.  They don't decide who my characters are or what they say.  They don't dictate what happens in the story.  They don't tell me how to draw such-and-such.  They just look at the end product and let me know if parts are confusing or irrelevant to the overall plot, or if some points aren't being brought out as much as they should.  They make the story a lot better, as far as I'm concerned.  And to their benefit, I will say that although none of them really seemed to get Edaniel in the first volume and a few were against his character, they didn't ask me to remove him or change any of his dialogue.  They kept it word for word, which made me very happy.  I think Edaniel presented somewhat of a risk to them of alienating the audience, but so far he's gone over extremely well.  

So that's how we put a book together.  As for materials, I do NOT pay for "special" artists' supplies because I think that's boneheaded.  I go to the craft store and buy a big flippy book of Biggie Sketch children's drawing paper in white, and that's what I draw my pages on.  I ink them with ordinary school pens I get from the drugstore.  Sometimes I use ballpoint pens.  I draw with cheap little mechanical pencils like you'd get at the gas station.  I also have an elementary school geometry set with a ruler and a triangle.  The only non-drugstore gadget I have is a croquill and Speedball ink jar that I got from JoAnn's in order to ink some finer details.

I don't shell out money for special A4 paper from Japan and pigment liners and whatever the kids are into these days.  You don't NEED those things.  Your art is the same no matter what kind of supply you use, and if you think more expensive supplies will make your art better, you're just fooling yourself.  Save your money up for art classes instead of Sakura pens or whatever.  Education is the ONLY tool you really can't go without.

Except for my neato eraser-bit sweeper I got in Japan *squee* it's shaped like a pretty bird wing!  It shoos away the eraser bits!  It's so cute.

Hope that was edifying!

Still sick

Mon Nov 28, 2005, 8:47 PM
Rock out everyone, book two of Bizenghast will be showing up in the stores along with a NEW PoP display!  :bump: That's the big standup cardboard cutout and bookshelf combo.  I didn't even get one of the first ones, which hurts me and my feelings.  But perhaps I'll get one of the second ones eventually.  ROCK ON!!!

I've also got an autographed Bizenghast poster and notebook set that I'll be putting on eBay.  These things are pretty neat because they're only sold at cons and numbers were limited on them :)  So I'll have that up soon.  

It may also interest you to know that I've discovered the whereabouts of Snakey, my unfortunate reptilian friend who was kidnapped by Dr. Jeeves.  I'll have an update on that as soon as I'm feeling well enough to draw it out. :)

Sick as a DOG

Sat Nov 26, 2005, 4:13 PM
So I'm officially sicker than sicker than sicker than sick.  See, I have this bizarre paradox every winter with which to cope.  I have massive amounts of body heat and I will melt in temperatures over fifty degrees.  I can't get goosebumps in winter, not even in snow.  I'm like a magical melty snow queen.  Freezing cold weather? I LAUGH AT IT.  But on the other hand, I have the world's weakest constitution.  I can be killed in nine different ways with nothing but a pair of pants.  So you can see the dilemma here. The weather turns cold, I refuse to wear jackets (and also shoes when applicable), I get a vicious cold and almost die of pneumonia.  Just because I can't FEEL cold, doesn't guarantee I can't GET cold.  And seeing as I break when touched, colds hit me like a ton of bricks wrapped in kleenex.

So I've had a cold for three days and I'm having a hell of a time doing any work, although I'm definitely trying. But I'm also dying of deathly sicker deathination pneumoninating, so I'd like to make out my will now.

To my little snakey friends on DA, I leave an entire bag of Snake Snax, the delishus snakey treat that snakes can eat.

To my cosplay friends, I leave sixteen crates of unused fabric and notions.

To my Philly crew and various other crews in various locations, I leave all my stuffed animals.  Even Magical Marty Jr.

To Christy I leave a bag of ham scraps.

To my family I leave a whole lotta credit card bills and some gum.

To Alan Rickman, I leave my Alan Rickman memorabilia. Just in case he needs it.

I think that about wraps it up.  If anyone needs me, I'll be buried under nine blankets, covered in tissues and NyQuil.

Still on vacation

Tue Nov 15, 2005, 9:16 AM
Hey y'all!  Still in Philly with :iconqueenginny: on mah vacation.  We did the photoshoot with Jeremy and his assistant in downtown Philly on Saturday and MAN was it cold that night!  There was also a meteor shower overhead, but the stupid city lights got in the way of most of it. :(  We're prolly going to take more pics this Wednesday down by the riverfront because we found a really cool location for my Katrina dress from Sleepy Hollow and G-chan's Elizabeth from Pirates of the Caribbean.  Also have a few more photo-ops planned before I leave which should be wicked cool.

Also did Philly Classic this weekend very briefly...just stopped in with G long enough to judge the costume contest and hand out the trophies, then drove to Ridge's Diner for a giant lunch.  It was a video game con so it wasn't really my thang, but I wore my McGee's Alice and did my best. :)

Today I'm finishing up my mermaid costume for the mermaid group that G-chan, Yaya and I are doing at AUSA.  It's MERLICIOUS!

AnimeUSA is this weekend...phew only one more con to go!  I can't believe this vacation went by so fast! ;_;
