Finished Streaming TnC Inks

April 30, 2014 0 Comments

#livestream +Livestream @livestream #stream @picarto #picarto Well thanks to those who came out to view the live streams. Cause you won't be able to see the recorded videos I attempted to make. The setting to 'save recording to desktop' also didnt work apparently so its not even on my computer. yet when I open procaster, its set to do so.
Well anyways...finished TnC inks. Part 1 video that was an hour 15 min didn't encode right on the Livestream server so when you play it just sits there blank. Thats their mess up. Part 2 featuring 2 hours i did after lunch didnt save at all even though i said save it. Good job Livestream server! - gee, wonder why i started using Picarto for my streams... lets see. No ads, crisp clarity even full screen, and though I dont see a way to record at this time, it provides unlimited streaming and straight forward interface without ads that try to trick you to download stuff or pop ups. Hmm... and Livestreams lowest tier paid plan is like 100 bucks isnt it? Why would you pay that for their crappy service? Seriously. Guess I'll wait a month till I forget how bad it is again and then use it and then get reminded. Like I did today. Good show Livestream.com, good show. My live streaming will stick with Picarto thank you very much. All they have to watch out for is neko and furry arts. And at least they are predictable.
Wonder if Stanley Lau has any of these issues with his streams?

TnC 40-44 Inks Livestream Video Part 1 and Part 2

0 Comments


Cory never gets to make it out to Livestreams when I'm working on TnC - so thought I'd do him a favor and record the inking on this week's 40-44! Enjoy the part one was done before lunch, part 2 after lunch. Previously I thought they didn't encode right or Livestream messed up. Apparently they just took forever gettin them up on the site. Enjoy!

Part 1 - Ink lines

Fire Axe Wielder - Character Art Commission

April 29, 2014 0 Comments


Finished character art commission - one character w/ full background/effects
Fun stuff - bit of a monster with the various details/ effects.
But pretty happy with the result, hope the client is too! Below is some shots of the process. Enjoy! Any questions about techniques or steps used please commetn below and I'll answer as promptly as possible. Used a lot of different techniques on this one

Initial concept mockup sketch - client liked it but i wasn't satisfied with the angle

Actualy penciled this traditionaly on a marker pad outside on a nice day when i was tired ofbeing cooped up in the ol' studio. Some of the proportions are off and I didnt have reference was drawing from memory so it doesnt have everything

Went over the pencils on computer made new refined pencils. Added character design details i forgot and indicated the shades/ lighting a bit for the inking stage. This is as tight as I took the pencils before inking

  
Lineart inks with pencils on a layer below it. Inked in inkscape. Also a bit cleaner than the tight sketch underneith now.
  
Finished inks as they were exported from Inkscape and imported to Photoshop
 
Except for some glow effect on the fire and lava, this is the basic flats for he piece
From here added shading highlights and effects to create the finished piece at top!

Thanks for checking the process out and as I said before, got questions about the process or wondering how I did a particular part, ask in the comments below. I'm an open book, and will answer as accurately and promptly as I am able!

Speed vs Quality

April 25, 2014 0 Comments

http://www.talkshoe.com/talkshoe/web/talkCast.jsp?masterId=74008&cmd=tcCool post by Peter Palmiotti this morning I thought was good food for thought, for myself and for clients and for other comic creators. Reposted below. Click the link to go to his blog. Click the image to visit his podcast 'independent road'

On Time Delivery.

     I don't expect to be on-time with all I'm setting out to do, which is a lot, but I do think a constant push in trying to achieve all this will result in getting there, maybe even quicker.
    This is based on experience and mostly what has worked for me. I don't recommend it to others.
    It also has a lot to do with what I'm looking to do, and also that I ultimately don't care to be 100% perfect out of the gate. A large part of what I do wish to perfect (over time.) is only accomplished by posting online. I'm a guy, I learn by making mistakes.. not reading instructions.

    What I wanted to chat about here today has to do with a conversation I recently heard. Mentioned was Speed VS Quality. In a way what I'm currently doing falls under speed. I thumb nail a page, I decide its good enough or make changes only in my head.. then pencil and ink. Not a lot of fine tuning or fuss. (though I'm spending a fare amount of time on how it looks online (on-line sizing/ DPI levels, etc. are things I'm figuring out.) Not to say I slap it together but I could clearly spend two days on a page, not one.

    This is my first time attempting the regular production of comic pages, any ones done in the past where mostly sporadic. But it is understood that comic art is a language not an illustration. Although most comic artists of today are some of the finest illustrators of our time! I approach each page as individual camera shots. Linked together they (hopefully) tell us a story. I ultimately wish to be the best of both worlds. As an inker for most of my career my penciling isn't so tight, I'm going with the flow. I thumb nail to grab hold of an image and then pencil it out knowing as an inker I usually tighten images up.. but I find myself wanting tighter pencils to work off of. I'm sure after  few more weeks I may find myself doing just that. If I'm to keep up with my crazy schedule I have to shoot for speed.. part of me realizes a certain looseness is helpful in expressing action and fluidity. Most of my penciling is stiff and I try to breakout of that.

    One of my penciling heroes is John Romita JR, who is renowned for being a bit of a speed demon. Jack Kirby who's work I also love is the same... this is not to say I'll ever reach their status but one reaches.

    So I'm not about to spend too much time penciling, or total time on each page.. I'm focused on completion! Deadlines have always been a sickening, looming, dreadful end to each individual illustration or project over all and its time to give it an overall left hook in the face.

    What's your preference? Speed or Quality?

    I know in the end each page (from a business stand point) represents X dollars, and if you need to make Y amount each month then you need to produce Z amount of pages to survive. But I don't wish to only survive anymore, I wish to Thrive!!!

Here's to making it big,
Peter.

Thanks Peter for this ensightful commentary. Very good topic that many creators and commissioners need to consider.

Throw Back - SuperFriends 2004

0 Comments


#throwbackthursday #tbt Todays Throwback Thursday post - Heres an oldy from 2004! This is a 11x17 illustration I did in pencil, then inked with sharpie/micron pens of me and the group of friends I hungout the last year or two of college. Each one in different super hero/ fighter designs/outfits depending on personality/ preferences and some just random. Random only if there was nothin really to come up with for them. I am in the middle with the blue face/hair and robot arm. My creativity was pretty fertile around then I guess! Just drawin all kindsa crazy crap from my brainnzzzz. colored on the computer, still wasn't relaly great at coloring in photoshop but had to start somewhere! This ended up being a big ol' 4 foot by whatever foot mural on the dude with the orange trenchcoats wall. Looked sweeeet. Wonder if he still has it. 
Sad to say am out of contact with all these folks now. After college seems everyone goes back to where they live or move to somewhere new in pursuit of lives and careers. But this time was a great time I will always remember!

Nerdgasms Interviews TnC Creator Cory Matthews

April 21, 2014 0 Comments


#webcomic #comic #interview #tnc #geek
Nerdgasms.net just posted their really cool interview with Cory Matthews, EWG Client, TnC Creator and Writer - and collaborator! Check it out, learn more about the comic and the mind behind it and share/ like etc! Thanks Nerdgasms for the great interview, for the shoutouts and to cory for the shoutouts as well. Look forward to more TnC comic strips to come!
Original Post:
http://nerdgasms.net/interview-with-t-n-c-comics-creator-cory-mathews/

The Interview;
Nerdgasms.net did an interview with our friend and comic creator Cory Matthews about his creation: T n C Comics.
TnCTogether_PromoCover_byEWG_530-cols copy
Nerdgasms: So you do TnC comics which is based on you, Cory, and your wife, Tia. Do you want to tell us a little about the comic itself?
Cory: Sure it’s basically started out with just a single strip of me teasing my wife about packing her bags for vacation and just going way overboard and packing like thirteen bags for a one week vacation … I knew an artist, Eryck Webb of Eryck Webb Graphics who I had commissioned artwork from before and I asked him if he would be interested in doing the strip. He took it on and made fun of Tia with it and I showed around to a bunch of family and friends everybody enjoyed it. They all thought it was funny and so they all asked me when is the next one? When is the next one. I hadn’t really thought that far ahead, so when it seemed like enough people liked it I decided I’m gonna try to do more and TnC comics was made.
Since you started, what has been the response you’ve gotten?
Pretty much every everybody likes it. The best part is when people are like “oh. That sounds like me my wife” or friends that go that totally sounds like something you would do to Tia. Yo everyone likes it. It seems like the fan favorite is Colby everybody likes it when Colby makes a guest appearance … overall for all everyone really likes it a lot like
23
What was Tia’s first reaction when you showed her the first strip that Eryck drew?
When she first saw it, she was like “that’s cute”  That was pretty much the end of it.  She didn’t like the fact that she was the butt of the joke in the first comic.  But when once I did some more and hammered out some scripts and Eryck did the artwork, she saw I was the bumbling goofball of the comic strip, she liked it a lot more.
What about your kids?  They are starting to make appearances.  Were they hesitant to be in it at first?
I’m the adult.  So I didn’t really give them a choice.  I just did it. Ciara thought it was cute and she really liked it when I started including her bearded dragon, Steve. She asked me to print out a copy of the strip to hang up on her wall. She’s pretty proud of Steve being in it.  My son just turned 20 and he moved back home. So he’s being included in the strip and he’s included in the latest issue.  Slowly we’re getting everyone back in it.  Basically it’s going to focus on the 4 of us and our nephew Colby.
How long does it take you to write a script?  Do you bank a bunch of them?
It’s hard because I always feel like I have these great ideas.  But the great ideas always seem to hit at like 11:30 at night when you’re laying in bed trying to go to sleep. They never hit you at like 4 in the afternoon. Last week, I think I did eleven scripts and this week I’ve been sorta flabbergasted and I haven’t done anything. The good thing is I sorta just type them up and save them and ship 4 scripts a month to Eryck.  He does 4 strips at a time so that gives me enough time to figure out some more.  Plus they kinda write themselves.  Yesterday, everyone was gone from the house except for me.  I thought that’s what I wanted until I was alone then I was bored.  Something like that translates pretty easy to a 3 or 4 panel comic strip.
In one of the latest editions, your character complains about “based on a true story”.  Is that a nod to your comic strip?
No.  It’s actually something that really really irks me. At the beginning of every television show or movie, they say “based on a true story” but they never really tell you what it means.  How much of it is a true story?  All of it but they changed the name of the character for privacy issues? Or is it that the story happened in a small town in Pennsylvania and that’s the only part that’s true and everything else is made up.  It just drives me nuts.  It’s one of those things that makes me scratch my head sometimes.
TheOneOnionRing
It’s like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  It says based on a true story, but the only true part was there was a killer that wore people’s faces.  It wasn’t with a chainsaw, there wasn’t a whole family of crazies.  It wasn’t even in Texas. 
Exactly.  But it’s “based on a true story”.  Haha.  Then you have “loosely based on a true story”, that’s just making things up.  Why even bother saying it’s based on a true story?  People give me weird looks when I go off on those tangents.  But it’s one of the things I think about.
I feel your pain.  I have a strong physics background, so movies like Mission Impossible drive me nuts.  I’ll yell “GRRRR THAT CAN’T HAPPEN!” and everyone thinks I’m nuts.
Tia says the same thing.  She says I ruin movies when I say things like “ya know, I don’t know why the right side of that car is all mashed up.  He was getting rammed on the left hand side.  The left hand side should have been messed up.”  And she’ll just tell me to shut up and enjoy the movie. One of the funnier ones is the movie Troy with Brad Pitt.  I guess there’s a plane flying by in a shot.  Good job editing that.
With TnC comics, what’s your ultimate goal with the strip? 
Ideally, I’d like to get it printed.  The whole idea of it was to pass something down to the grandkids when Tia and I got old.  “look!  Grandma and grandpa were in the comics!”  But the positivity I’ve gotten from it has been so overwhelming, so I’ll take it as far along as I can.  I’m not looking to make any money on it. I’m not going to be Bill Watterson [creator of Calvin & Hobbes] or Jim Davis [creator of Garfield] or anything.  If I can get some books made and people actually want them, I’d be willing to do any of that.  I’m working on a kickstarter to hopefully cover some of the financials of getting a book made.
With Eryck Webb doing the artwork for the strips, how long does it take him to do the 4 stories for the month and get them to you?
It takes him about a week.  He’s got other projects going on as well. It basically comes down to me sending him the 4 scripts and he sends me back a rough draft.  I ask him for any changes I need, which is pretty seldom.  He and I are on the same page for the most part. So it goes really smoothly.  He sends me the rough draft. I’ll OK them.  And a few days later, he sends me the final copy.  Then I have the hardest job of all.  I have to hang on to them for a month without showing people.  Then hand them out every Friday like candy.
Since you’ve started doing the strip, have you noticed the audience growing and growing?
Ya know.  I do it for me.  But at the same time its nice to know that people enjoy it. They say not to worry about it and just do it because you like to do it. But everyone wants to be accepted and everyone wants to be known for being good at something. So every week I get a few new likes on Facebook. And just this month, my friend Scott has helped me set up TnCcomics.com  We’ve got those two venues going, we have twitter, deviantart, and I also post on different forums.  So I try to get it out there. I like it and everyone else seems to like it.  So I want as many people as possible to see it.
TNC-01-ComicStrip-CMatthews_byEWG_42513crop
I like it because it keeps the G-rating and unlike a lot of comics in the newspaper, it’s still funny. Having a wife that is not part of geek culture, I read it and say “this could be my wife and me”
The G-rating, I do that because I want everyone to be able to enjoy it and read it.  I don’t want to alienate anyone. I wish I could go more than a G-rating because I have a whole lot of material I could talk about. But I think it might ruin the innocence of the comic strip. You can’t get into serious topics or adult conversation and then come back with Colby playing with a bearded dragon.  That’s two different things and two different areas. I try to keep it fun and innocent and go from there.
What does your family think about the comic?  Do they find it funny?
Yeah. My brother is usually the first one I hear from every week. He always says “I can totally see you doing that”. And my sister-in-law will tell me “I’d me mad if I was Tia.  There’s no way Clayton would get away with that.”  Everybody seems to like it.  The only complaints I’ve heard was in the beginning when I was doing the coloring.  Some people said the coloring looked a little plain.  Then Eryck took over the coloring chore with TnC #10. So I guess I fixed the only complaint.
For this years San Diego Comic Con, they gave you a professional badge.
SUCKERS!
Ha. How did that make you feel when you got that notice?
Actually I was proud.  It was almost like having another baby.  Like I said, I was doing it for fun.  And my friend Walden Wong, who inks for Marvel right now, was like “you can go, you’re a professional now”.  I just make comic strips on the internet, that shouldn’t matter.  But he said it does, and he believed in me enough to file all my paperwork and make me flyers to pass out at San Diego Comic Con. He did all that.  And I got the thing that said congratulations you’ve been accepted as a professional at SDCC, I thought it was pretty cool.  I can’t wait to get the badge that says “Cory Matthews” and has TnC Comics underneath. I’ll probably frame it because I’m a goofball like that.  I figure if I can get into comic con, I can get in everywhere now.
With newspapers dying off and the comic strips moving online, has that been helpful because of more outlets or harder because of competition?
It works both ways.  In one way its easier because there’s a lot of people that have submitted to have their comic syndicated and be told they’re not good enough.  There’s a lot of talented people out there.  So they have a bigger outlet to get their comics seen. And with all of these print-on-demand outlets, it makes it easier for people to get their stories out there. And there’s a lot of great stories that I’ve found that I would never have found if I was just looking in the newspapers. It’s really sad because I enjoy getting the Sunday paper and reading my comics. That’s something I grew up with, getting the Sunday paper and reading the comics.  Now that newspapers are slowly dying out, that’s sad. But now there’s more options out there. Where before you could only find a comic you like in the paper, now you can find a comic you like anywhere on the internet.
What’s been the best moment of doing the comic so far?
This.  This is pretty cool.  This, getting my comic con badge.  Just knowing there’s other people out there that are doing it and are willing to help.  Its been like a brotherhood.  There’s websites I’ve gone to like webcomicalliance.com and justthefirstframe.com and they’re there to help people.  It’s not cutthroat. They’re not trying to shove you out of the way to get their comic more out there.  There’s so much room that they get their comics out there, then scoot over a little bit and let you put your ideas on the table too. So finding out you’re not alone is pretty cool.  Finding out you don’t have to be super successful to be successful. If that makes sense.
It’s kind of cool with the geek culture.  Most people help each other out.  I see that with my site.  Bigger sites helping me out and giving me suggestions.
That’s what’s nice. People make it seem that if you’re a geek or a nerd, you’re a shut in.  You live in your mom’s basement and play on the internet and play video games and have all of this seclusion.  Except it’s almost totally the opposite.  Through the internet, I’ve been able to branch out and made friends with people all the way to Virginia [editor note: Cory lives in the Northwest US] who do web comics.  Chris Flick [capesnbabes.com] is one of them.  He’s 3 time zones away and he still doesn’t care that I bother him for ideas or tips or to pick his brain.  So I’ve been able to make friends that I would never have been able to make before if I hadn’t been nerdy enough to spend time on the internet.
CoryTiaVacation
Is there anything you want to add?
I wouldn’t change anything.  I got a great artist in Eryck Webb.  I’ve got terrific people willing to help in Byron Wilkins, Chris Flick, Dawn from webcomicsalliance.  I’m just having a blast.  I can’t believe that a one-strip comic that I was going to use to just tease my wife with is something that I’m being interviewed about and considered a professional at San Diego Comic Con for. It’s the Superbowl of Comic Conventions.
Through you, I got to work with Eryck Webb.  If you’re on the site, he did the logo and the little character that he dubbed Nerdgasmo. That was all done by Eryck.  For me, he was fantastic to work with.  Through a couple emails, he had an amazing grasp of what I was looking for.  He send over 8 samples and through a composite of them all, he knew exactly what I wanted and did a fantastic job.
That’s what I love about Eryck.  It’s not like “here’s your work now go away”.  He makes himself available through email and he web streams artwork.  So some nights I sit back and watch the live stream.  It’s awesome to be able to watch the artwork being done from a blank piece of paper, to a sketch to pencil lines to color to lettering.  And you see it all come together.  To me at least, that’s really entertaining.  That’s part of the reason I went with him. It wasn’t just a job, but something he really enjoys doing.  That’s what I was looking for, somebody that would enjoy doing it too. So I enjoy working with him.
He doesn’t make it a black box.  It’s not like “here’s your work”.  He involves you through the whole process.
He has been so helpful because he has his own comic. He does a web comic he puts out called Jumping Boy.  Me being new at it, I get emails from him saying “are you sure you want to do it like this?  It might be better this way” and he’s right.  So we go that way.  It goes back to what I was saying.  In web comics, everybody helps everybody. It makes it fun.  It’s not stressful. It’s fun.
Being friends aside, it’s a really good comic that I look forward to.
Yeah.  Every Friday.  I haven’t missed one yet.  In May, I think, it will be one year and we haven’t missed one Friday.
You even took the comic version of you on vacation with you.
Sometimes you have to do what you have to do.  Eryck was nice enough to draw Tia and I in vacation clothes and I printed it out and did a little cut out and brought it with us to the Caribbean.  So we got TnC in Honduras in some Mayan ruins. I thought it was something fun to do.  No matter where we go, TnC is coming with us.
Any final words?
Thank you for the interview.  Thank you to Eryck Webb for being a great artist.  Thank you to all the people who have helped me so far.  Thank you to all the people who will help me when my Kickstarter project goes up.  I figure after that 30 days of the kickstarter project everyone is going to hate me for bombarding them.

Easter Egg Hunt Over!

April 20, 2014 0 Comments

The first EWG website easter egg hunt has ended! Thanks to those who participated, and snagged a real good deal by hunting down the egg. Location shown above! Easiest way to get to this post was via the EWG Gallery Of Work page. The egg on this pic showed in the thumbnail large and clear. Or if you happened to navigate to this page. But the gallery was more likely.

So those folks shall enjoy the discount on their next orders. Thanks so much to those who tried to participate but faced nothing but frustration and confusion because apparently (with no pre-warning) the domain name expired lastnight. I tried my best to setup the site as blogspot.com (the domain cloaked that true url) - and hoped people would try to come back and do the hunt but alas I'm sure it killed a lot of the interest. Those who came and snagged the discount came in the first couple hours before the domain went down.

Was a fun event to have and will do it again next year with NO domain problems!

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter - back to biz as usual this week! Will be out of office majority of Monday, so any pending invoices or emails I will get back to Tuesday!

The final type and content is not necessarily set in stone but the premise is to contribute a 'reprint' of an Jumping Boy story and perhaps some other content in a free comic offered on May 3rd during Free Comic Book Day. To join in the nationaly honored day, I thought it would be most appropriate, being that all EWG work is currently digital, to offer the comic as a free digital download. It will be PDF format complete book, cover to cover, but digital! Ideal for viewing on your computer, smartphone or tablet! I gotta say, if you haven't read my webcomic on a tablet or smartphone screen, your missing out. It makes the reading panel row by panel row perfect and the art nice and condensed and crisp! ANYWHO!
Happy and very eager to participate in the movement to promote comics and reading in youngsters and adults alike that may not have ever tried reading comics. Promotes comics, as well as reading :) 
So - happy to do this digital 'ashcan' of sorts and also kickoff the first in hopefuly a lot more to come of the EWG Comics area of my business and creative pursuits!
Thanks for those who came out to see the artwork happen! Was a lot of fun going all out in the style I use for clients, but on something for myself! Eventualy this might get turned into cover art for chapter one on the webcomic as well. 
Enjoy! And stay tuned for the release. This will be free on May 3rd but a 5.00 digital download after the fact. Upon purchase for $0 dollars purchaser will be emailed their free comic!
Thought about doing a free print run in limited number but its not FREE if you have to pay for shipping, and I really cant afford to ship free comics to everyone.
So, what do you think! Excited to participate this year! Look forward to feedback ideas thoughts requests.

Throw Back - Prodigy Comic - 2005

0 Comments


Also as a bonus for #throwbackthursday #tbt Check out this oldy from around 2004/2005 - a canned personal comic project called 'Prodigy: Child Wonder or Weapon Of Mass Destruction?' - but those who pay attention to my Jumping Boy comic will see these two characters brought back to life in Jumping Boy. You've seen the shady scientist dood a couple chapters back at the ol' badguy headquarters, and the girl appeared in chapter 1 - the scientist dood shows up again in the next chapter or so - and she'll show up later on. - theres your trivia for the day. i used to think this page was sooo cool and like something new that ya never see. well lookin back its not drawn as good as i thought but love some of the energy and sequences still - enjoy this small 'clip' of the ol' comic that took up most of my free time in my junior year of college haha

Also should note - at the time, my photoshop coloring process was horribly juvenile and took 5x longer than what i do now. but i do like the end result somewhat. 

AND everything was penciled/inked on 11x17 paper traditionaly!





Throw Back - Corvette girls 1999

#throwbackthursday #tbt #art #comics #sketchbook
Every Thursday I enjoy seeing other pages posting 'Throwback Thursday' nostalgia - well I thought 'hey i can do that' - as I have all the art i've ever had on my computer all the way back to like 2005 or earlier. Infact the earliest FOLDER is marked 'Pre 2007' so theres like 10 years just in that one folder. Then after that I made a new folder every year. Well heres an OLDIE!
Was colored with prisma color markers I used to own (i really dont know where they went....) and ol' micron pen probably. This is a sketch from an 11x14 sketchbook and looks like was done in 1999! Holy archives batman! Not too shabby. Haha - this was back when whether something came out well or not was completely hit or miss. I was drawing all the time back then, and in my highshool's 'Anime Club' where basicaly me and buncha other anime fans and comic geeks got together every Wednesday and just drew, talked about comics and sometimes had anime playing on a vcr in the bg. This was a very creatively fertile year for me i remember drawing and coloring and filling at least two sketchbooks that year.
I remember I was so proud of this corvette drawing i drew using a pic from a corvette magazine for reference. And then had to sorta guess at the size compared to the service guy and the two girls.
Its cool to stop look back, and even my signature was different then. I always used EH instead of EW cause I liked the japenese looking symbol i could make. Why does the service guy look like Steve from Horseshoes and Handgrenades. I suppose the other two are thelma and louise? i have no idea.
