A Book By its Cover - Chapter zero - Page 4 by Miss-Mae
A Book By its Cover - Chapter zero - Page 4
Page four of ABbiC.  Poor Traeden, he can't stand bad manners. :XD: 

Still learning the ropes with Manga Studio, but I think I'm getting marginally better.  Also, C.C's first official appearance will be in the next page - but I'm not sure when I'll have it done.  I injured my hand at work and it's gotten infected, so... ^^;  I probably shouldn't have been working on this so soon, but I didn't want to leave it, since my only day off the next while is Christmas Day. 

By the way, the Smackjeeves for this comic/manga can be found here: abbic.smackjeeves.com/

HM: What Are You Looking At? by Miss-Mae
HM: What Are You Looking At?
I wanted to take a break and just doodle something last night, and this was the result. I finished it off this afternoon, since I thought she looked cute.

I don't know what it is, but Karen from Harvest Moon 64 often is my go-to character when I just want to doodle something.  It's been like that since I was young, and after RPing as her, that just increased.  Doesn't matter what style I'm drawing in, I always like Karen, she has such a great design.  It's a real shame they messed with her personality so much in BTN and FoMT, though. :\ 

Anyways! Nothing too special about this. I figure she's ticked off since she caught someone staring at her (maybe she's trying to sneak a drink while working at the bar, lol).  Oh ya, and this was done entirely in Paint Tool Sai. I love that program. :3

Hello everyone! :wave:

I'm officially a year older than I was when I wrote my last journal. :)  And I come with lots of news.  Obviously, as you have likely seen, I have finally stopped being a chicken and started drawing chapter zero of A Book By Its Cover! After talking to Troy and tiffa, I decided I should give in and at least give the comic drawing a chance.  It's definitely been a learning experience so far, as I really don't know what I'm doing, but I feel like this is one of those areas where the best way to learn is to just jump in and learn as you go.  

As of now, I have three finished pages, and I'm halfway done the fourth page. I definitely still have a LOT to learn, especially since I've never really worked with screentone before, but it's been fun. The BGs are definitely lacking, too, but that's 100% my weakest area, and I am hoping this will force me to experiment with them as well. 

For those of you who don't like reading on DA, I have been uploading to Inkblazers and Smackjeeves already. I'll post the links at the bottom of the page, for anyone interested in checking them out.
As to the length of this comic, chapter zero in thumbnails is sixteen pages, not including the cover page, so at the very least, it will be less than twenty pages.  As for the rest of it, I'm not really sure at this point.  The reason I decided to start with chapter zero and not chapter one is actually so I could experiment and practice, and if it's total rubbish, I can just leave it as a one shot. :shrug:  I do have a lot more planned out, but for now, we'll just see what happens. Especially since I don't know if anyone is going to read it. 

I know I had more interesting things to share here, but DA went into maintanence mode and totally erased the original journal, so I apologize if this is at all disjointed.  Thanks for reading, and even more so, thanks for reading my manga/comic/thing if you do.  I really appreciate the support. n___n <3

A Book By its Cover - Chapter zero - Page 3

Third page of A Book by its Cover chapter zero.  The fourth page is halfway done, so I thought I’d post the third up now, since I finished it last night anyways. :shrug:

Again, still getting the hang of this. I did everything in Manga Studio, which I'm still learning as well.  The toning is definitely a bit tricky, but I figure I'll get better with practice, right? Also, yes, Traeden's parents are both human.  This is something that I intend to touch on in the regular chapters, if I decide to keep drawing/writing this long enough.  The two of them are both still without names, though. I'll have to change that soon, lol.

A Book By its Cover - Chapter zero - Page 2
Second page for my original comic/manga, A Book by its Cover. This page is the intro to C.C, as seen through Traeden's eyes.  I originally intended for the whole comic to be seen through her POV, but I actually had a lot of fun showing Trae's thoughts and feelings when I was writing this chapter, and now I don't know if I want to stick with his POV or go with C.C's, as I originall intended.

After planning this out for months, I finally got a chance to get started on it.  Everything has been done in Manga Studio.  I'm a total newb at this, so I apologize for the many mistakes. I'm just sort of learning as I go.
