Poor Chip, so confused. I have a question though. I wanted to ask, was Louie's attempt at repentance (I say attempt because not sure if succeed yet, need to wait until the next update or so I guess TnT) or acknowledgement of his jack-assery planned from the beginning or is this a new direction you wanted to go with his character? I ask mainly because I don't know if the story was written first and you are drawing it as it is planned out or if you are going by just a basic premise/layout or whatnot. I have never done a webcomic myself so I am not sure how it is done and would love to know what goes into making one :3

Okay, gushing time: your work is amazing and I absolutely love it! I was introduced by a friend awhile back from a fb post and then got hooked right away. I read up until you went on break or something and then I myself took a break (life got busy). I just got back on it a week or so ago and have been following your updates since (it gets me through the week honestly. Gives me something to look forward to ^^;). I didn't know if this was going to be a romance comic or a really amazingly written (and rare) one of a strong and well-developed friendship at first (saw a comment a few pages ago in which you said it would be a romance one) but don't mind either way honestly. I don't see many stories like this that stay true to the element of friendship and honest connections with one another (romantic relationships seem staged or forced) but because of how well developed this relationship is I could see it going either way and totally love it. I am amazed at how awesome and dynamic your characters were both in design, personalities and relationships/connections. Not only that but the art style is stunning and I saw as you developed and tried out new styles and ways of drawing (new tech?) as the story went along and it is used very well. I would love to learn how you do all this and really appreciate all of the work you put into it. It is amazing, keep it up! :D


P.S. Didn't you/a very disgruntled Louie say at one point that Chip had no genitalia? If you go into the romance, is it just emotional connection or is it just something I am going to have to find out later on? (aka what is this story rated? lol)

@hikariangelwings: Everything at this point has been planned out for a long, long time :) Some elements further into the story we are still working on, but as a whole we have a good idea of what we want to do and where we want to go.

And thank you very much!! That all means a lot to both of us. While there will be primarily romance stuff, that doesn't mean there won't be friendship stuff still around too! And I'd be happy to share my process, but its not really anything special; mostly just trial and error 90% of the time, haha;;;

As for the genitalia thing, yea, it'd be emotional connection. There's not gonna be any nsfw stuff like that in general, even in relationships where both members have genitalia.

Process

reply

@Rakewn: What program do you use? Do you sketch out the page beforehand and then transfer them (edit/draw over them) or try to draw them only on/using your program? If you draw them only on your program (using reference of rough layout of page) how do you get the figures/positioning so perfect? (I have never been able to draw on the computer but then again have never had a tablet or anything besides just using a mouse and getting nowhere except extremely frustrated >.>) Also, how much time does each page usually take to make?

Thanks! ^^

@hikariangelwings: I pretty much only use Paint Tool Sai these days; I do all the sketching in it too. I wouldn't call the figures/positioning perfect myself since I have a lot to learn still; mostly I just try to eyeball it and make sure things don't look too funky and/or jumbled, I guess? For me, making a comic is a lot of trial and error and practice and knowing not everything is going to be perfect, but pushing through anyway because as long as you keep practicing and do your best and *you* like what you're making, its gonna improve and you're going to enjoy it. I've tried making comics before this and they were all train-wrecks, but with Skeptical, I make it with my best friends and we've been working on developing it for years now, and I think planning ahead so far and knowing where we're going is really what keeps it moving!
And each page usually takes like.. 3-4 hours give or take, but I get distracted pretty easily most of the time so it stretches out to like a whole day, haha.
Thank you for the questions! :)

Tablet or Mouse?

reply

@Rakewn: To draw it on the computer do you use a tablet or just the mouse? (I don't have a tablet but a few of my friends do and I heard it makes things a lot easier for certain things)

Btw your figures/positioning is pretty amazing and the way they work together seems very natural. I have trouble with that sort of thing myself and it takes forever to try and figure it out in some cases. I was amazed at how you got Ivet holding Jackie like that on #91 (and #92 as well) as I have attempted that pose a few times with some of my own characters and could never get it to look as natural as you did. I would usually end up fudging the pose a bit/cutting off certain parts or if I did it never quite reached the right harmony or looked proportional/natural - aka the arms or proportions of the characters didn't look right in the end result :(

@hikariangelwings: I use a tablet, and it does make things a hell of a lot easier!

And thank you very much! The best thing you can do is study real life models or if you don't have access to life drawing classes, you can use sites like this one: http://artists.pixelovely.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing/
Its all a matter of learning how anatomy works and how matter takes up space and all; its a lot of practice and i'm definitely not an expert, but I've always found that studying from real life is the best way to go about learning to draw it.

@Rakewn: I wish I had a tablet! Which kind do you use/would you recommend? (I am probably gonna have to ask for one for my birthday because idk how expensive they are and don't have a job at the moment >.>). Thank you so much for the link! I will definitely check it out :)

@hikariangelwings: Idk how much I can help in this area since I use a reeeaaally old Bamboo Wacom tablet that I think I got for around $70 a couple years ago, but now I think the cheapest tablets like these come in now is around $100(which isn't too bad considering their next price up from that one is $200)
Though I have heard a lot of people say that Monoprice tablets are fairly inexpensive and still pretty reliable, though I haven't ever used one. I'd recommend searching around and seeing what people are saying the pros/cons of certain types of tablets are, and make a final decision based on that. Best of luck!!
