engulfed page 1 by EatToast engulfed page 1 by EatToast
i get the wonderful honor to illustrate my good friend :iconjenkristo:'s awesome short story "Engulfed!" (at least that's what she lead me to believe that was what the title was:D)

anyway, this will be the first comic i'll ever do, so i'm both really excited, and really nervous! i worked very hard on each page, so please be nice to it! :D

i'll update pages every time i get the chance to! there will be special color pages for fun scenes! :dance:

i told jenkristo i'd have this up by midnight. i have five minutes to spare. :D

Toast-Sama! I notice that you didn't link this page to the next one *gasp*

But seriously, The artwork is fantastic! I Loved the cover page and the way you broke the spirit bottle was really cool! But I gotta say, my favorite part in these two pages is the panel on the top left of page 2, the little girl listening to her parents fight! The expression on her face is SO SAD! *sniff* Not to suggest that the other expressions aren't good ((I love all of their faces)) but I like her, I really like her character... and I will be going to tell jenkristo just that ^^. I also admire how you have her twisting her toes! A lot of people don't pay a lot of attention to such things. But Excellent form, I must say. Keep up the excellent work!

question, i was wondering if you added those texts on the computer, or do you just have super awesomely neat hand-writing?

and if it is added on the computer, how do you know how big the text bubbles should be, (the text bubble space looked hand drawn in there, and i was wondering if you ever ran out of space to type in the lines or ever just had too much space left over)

great comic page, btw, cant wait to see the rest =)

my handwriting is terrible :D i added the words in on the computer. i just kinda guess with the speech bubbles, i write the dialogue about the size i want it, draw the bubble around it, and erase the pencil writing later. :)

Yeah, it's a really fun experience. :D

Also, in case if you're interested, there's a webcomic community where you can post your comics and get feedback (it's sort of like devart but for comics). You might know about this already but in case you don't it's:

thanks! #3 was a lot of fun to draw! :) if i could find a place that would sell screentones, i'd love to try them out :) i hear they're a mess, but they'd save me time drawing so many ACTION LINES and time coloring darker parts with grey markers.

You can do it!
I have a friend who makes stuff like that...his earlier pieces were a bit rough, but he got SO much better in his latter years.
You'll get to where you feel comfortable with it, I'm sure. :]

Again, GREAT job!

He's lucky they don't live here in Florida, or she'd also be bitching about how damned hot it is without A/C. :XD: No, but really? The facial expressions are quite awesome. I really love his "Look at me" face.
