Hi!

Yesterday I really started tinking about drawing and pulishing comics on the internet. So Google helped me find Comicfury. Comicfury helped me find Kay and P!
Reading your comic is extremely motivating! I love your artwork, you've got suh a great style!

Now I'm sitting here like "I really want to do this, and I know i can if i just try hard enough. But how?"

It would be a huge favour, if you could just give me some tips, like where to start, what hard- and software to use?


Best regards from cold, snowy Sweden!

Hey there! Grats on you for wanting to get started in the comic world.

Since I'm not sure where you are artistically, I'm just going to give a few general tips to start.

It's not really about programs and mediums so much as it's about practice and determination. I went to a four-year art college where I learned a great number of skills and methods to achieve the results I wanted artistically, as well as develop my ideas and concepts to be as interesting as I could make them. This is the core of comics or any art. You want to hone your skills in various media, starting in a traditional sense (pencils, watercolors, etc) with still lives, figure drawing and much much practice. With a lot of hard work, you'll have the skills to draw whatever it is you want in whatever style you want to draw it in. Even if you want to cartoon, you need to learn to draw from life first! The more you practice traditional drawing styles and your own style, the better you'll get. It also helps to consume as much art, music and books as you can. These will help you come up with better ideas (see my interview via my blog for some more on this).

I wish I could say, "just use x-brand of paint and brushes and everything will come out perfect", but that's not really so!

Make a massive collection of artists and comics you like, and look at what they do. What about it do you like? What do you dislike? What would you do different. Make a list, start from there and see what you come up with!

Good luck!

I can't get over how beautiful your artwork is! Even this comic had no plot or words or anything, I would still follow it because of the art. But the fact that it's got awesome characters just makes it so perfect =)
