Author Notes

Okkk, so I'm gonna explain how moi makes my smexy comic pages for AEL..

LOL jk the pages are anything but smexy ;>

If you want to make a comic...

Don't use this as a reference for steps.
I don't know what I'm doing.

1: Simple sketch + Frame
I first sketch out the basic shapes for the characters. I use the circle tool and brush tool, and instead of color coding it, I don't. I then lower the opacity. I also add in the frame for the comic

2. Lineart
Not much to say here. Brush tool, new layer. boom

I leave out eyes and mouths because why not

3: Color
Here's where things start to get interesting. New layer, underneath the lineart, and color.

4. Shading/Highlight/Glow
This step is basically me derping around trying to make things work. I have a new shading style, so I don't entirely know what I'm doing. Also note the shading on Akki as an eevee, I changed it later. And Pixlr has a preset glow function, so that helped.

5. Background
Things start to look more polished now. I spent eternity on this step. I'm not joking. An hour? Around that. just me goofin around with some brushes, checking to see what would work. I really liked how the star background turned out, I blurred it a bit to give it a pop.

6. Expressions/Face
Because I'm weird and different, I draw eyes later in the steps. Pretty much it. I just add eyes. And note I went against my sketch for Akki in the first panel, with his face angling downwards and to our right. I just made him face straight, slightly upwards.

idk it seemed more important in my head

7. Extra
Tears, blood, dirt, etc. moop

And notice how in this step I realized that eevee Akki's shading was too light, so I changed it. .-.

8. Text

boom

done

Anyways, thats it :>
