Make Comics

This is where I try to "pay it forward", explaining all the techniques I've learned -- and am learning -- about making amazing, beautiful, epic webcomics as inexpensively as possible. I'm very early in my journey, but I'm learning so much, so fast, if I don't get it down quick, I'm worried I'll forget where I learned it all.

Some of the things I plan to talk about are:

  • Why use The Gimp?
  • Setting up The Gimp to create comics
  • Creating a page template
  • Writing the script
  • Panel breakdowns
  • Text balloons and finding a font
  • Thumbnails
  • Roughs
  • Inks
  • Flatting
  • Coloring
  • Shading
  • Highlights
  • Exporting the finished image

I plan to include many general art resources I've found invaluable, both websites like DeviantArt and books like Scott McCloud's Making Comics.
