    Well, here's what I made for Christmas at the end of last year for my comics I doodle.

    And a picture I just put up of a character from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    Objecthead pixel trash.
    Friends' characters mainly.

    lauma.

    I need to work on a lot of stuff still (colors, materials, shapes..), I haven't really had much time for pixels because of school work.
    So any feedback and advice appreciated.

    Not exactly related to the topic yet, but I'll post junk when I get to work on this.
    Anyway, going to put it under a spoiler so it's easy to ignore if people just want to see art instead of questions.

    Sometime next month there's going to be this comic con thing in Tampere and I'm possibly going to go there with my school.
    For the con I'm trying to make some sort of a 8-6 pages/A6 mini comic, but I don't really know how to go about it.
    I could either make a separate, short stand-alone story and sell the mini comic "books" (for a little cash), or I could make it related to my projects just to get a little visibility and give them to people for free.
    Or I could do both if I have the time, with all the school work.

    Does anyone have any experience about this and/or opinions on which could be better?

    if I was offered a free comic that I didn't know the name of my first thought would be that it's promotional material for something I don't care about and I'd dismiss it.

    But I also spend at least two hours a day sitting in a vegetative state so I don't know if you can trust my opinion

    That's why I'm not sure about it.
    It'd be related to/a part of a webcomic or so (or related to some game project), and because I'm going to offer all my current projects online for free when they're finished and as I progress, I don't think it'd be fair to ask for money for something small that is a part of them.

    I would kind of get my name out there first with the free promo. IMHO. People are more hesitant to drop money from someone they haven't heard of.

    If you can push it, do both, but focus more on the networking and getting the name out. MIND YOU: This does NOT mean do shit for free. They will try that crap too.
    But, if you have actual school work to do, dont worry about the selling aspect and just make it for fun right now.

    I bought my art portfolio to NY comic con just for kicks and giggles with some friends a few years back.

    I made more money through the exposure than actually trying to sell anything.
    They saw the book, asked if I did commissions, etc, etc. Plus it let me walk around with stan lee for the day

    If your projects were already published/established online, then I would say to go for doing a tie-in comic to help promote your projects.
    But since your projects aren't published yet, I say it's better to do a stand-alone short story, just to get your name out there. You could even relate it to your projects if you like, for familiarity's sake and practice, but I wouldn't recommend relating it to the actual plot(s)(?) of your projects.

    I have some few pages finished for a "short-ish" project (less than 100 pages when finished, I think) and I'm probably going to publish a few of them before the comic con.
    So I think I could link the comic to the story or have it briefly introduce the characters/style in a form of a separate mini story.

    Thanks for the feedback so far, I have a far clearer picture of what I could do with this.

    Staying on one path for extended periods of time kills my progress, so I decided to try and see what happens when I draw over watercolor painting or paint over thick sketch.

    Doodling some creatures and trying to find a little messy, "brush-like" style for the non-pixel art elements of my game
    ->
    ggg. asdassafafad. blob.

    As a side note, I'm possibly going to get the tiny first alpha (to show visuals and some of the game mechanics) out next week or the week after, and I'd like to find a few people to check it out and give me feedback about how things look and feel. Going to make a project thread when I finally get it to that point.
    I planned to finish this test version during this weekend but I'm going to Tampere Kuplii comic con thing so I have to work on it along with school stuff next week.

    Working on the first cutscene/intro for my game, I'd appreciate any feedback.
    I put the panels/frames into my stash on dA so I don't have to put them all here.
    Currently a few of the last frames are missing, working on them a bit later.

    It's not going to be properly animated (at least for this version), just pictures + maybe text if I can't make it clear enough.
    If you're giving feedback to help me, you don't need to focus on how the sketches came out (but you can), I'll redraw them.
    How clear it is, can you tell what is happening? Any suggestions on how to make it better? Should there be text?

    I think that depends a little on what exactly you're trying to say with this scene.
    Has death claimed this malformed child?

    Close.
    I didn't say what's happening intentionally (telling what something is makes people see it differently than they'd possibly experience it without the information),
    but here;

    The man with the skull is a priest -
    Woman gives birth to a child, who happens to be deformed,
    so the priest takes the child and is going to ditch it into a forest.

    The reasons for this are explained later in the game as the lore/mythology of the world gets explored a little, if that seems to be too vague.

    It's more like a plan (the characters' appearances change and their placements need to be fixed, etc, etc, this wouldn't be a good sketch to start with).
    I'll redraw each panel completely, now my intention is simply to make sure people understand what's happening in this before I proceed.
    And to see if there's need for narrating or so.

    Sorry about the size and quality, Krita fucked the file so I had to take a screenshot to save it.

    Manticore concept. The colors are going to be rustier than here.
    Instead of a human face, I'm probably giving him a mask/doll face, with the mouth with three rows of teeth hidden behind it.
    And instead of having a typical scorpion tail I was thinking about giving him a thicker tail. I figured a more "muscular" tail (like kangaroos'/crocodiles/etc for example) might be more functional when it's supposed to work as a weapon. I'll still have to change his anatomy to make sure it'd "work".
    I'm not sure if the design is original enough - at least a maw like that is getting over-used.
    I might still change a ton of things.
    fckk.
