Wednesday Night Comic Creators Club 017: January 28 -February 3 2009


Hi guys, welcome to the Wednesday Night Comic Creators Club thread.

The idea of this series of week long threads is to be an incubator for your sequential
art ideas. This mean you can post ANYTHING that will facilitate the creation of your comic. (This means ideas, scripts, Concept Art, Finished art ) for:
[li]One panel Strip [/li][li]Three to Four Panel Strips[/li][li]Comic Book [/li][li]Storyboards (NEW!)[/li][/ul]Think of it of a club within the forum for people who WANT to do comics.

[li]Every Wednesday night a new week long thread will be posted on the CGTalk Daily Sketch Forum called:[color=darkorange]Wednesday Night Comic Creators Club XXX: MONTH YEAR [/li]

This will be the CORE thread, created by the moderator, (that would be me)
[li]You can post on the core thread anything you want as long as it related a to a sequential art idea[/li][li]If yo ualready have a web comic, well SHOW IT to us…[/li][li]WIP entries should be on the artists WIP thread. This thread might be hosted on the WIP forum OR…the Member SKETCH Collection [/li][li]This is a thread to allow creators to have fun so please feel free post your Comments[/li][/ul]IF and only IF we gather enough interest we might start doing voting for:
[li]Best Writing [/li][li]Best Story [/li][li]Best Art[/li][li]Most Updates[/li][li]Most Views (IE Highest ratings: I want to keep track on who has been getting the highest number of hits on the WIP thread for the comic…more on this later[/li][/ul]Keep this in mind.
A monthly comic book has 24 pages. And in order to have enough material for a graphic novel you should need to do 6 issues of a comic.

24 * 6 = 144 pages

This is why most pros do a at least a page a day.

And please if you do comic book, do it in multiple of 2.
Wednesday Night Comic Creators Club 010: December 10 - 16 2008
Hi guys, welcome to the Wednesday Night Comic Creators Club thread.


If you think you can’t to a full comic book, do a 3 - 4 panel
newspaper strip. 5 - 10 updates a month are more than enough in my book.
And if you are going to do a comic book, do short stories first , since they usually have
4 to 6 pages. Think Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt or Amazing Stories for inspiration.
Good luck




i want to try something like this for this thread…



Sounds cool. I’ll try it. But how does it work for the “Wednesday Night Comic Creators Club”? Is each installment considered a sketch? And the “COMIC STRIP” threads are in the “Speedpaints & Sketchbooks” forum. Does that matter?

I should upload ALL my little comic-attempts. Some of them are slightly interesting.

BACKGROUND: I made this episode because I’m always disappointed when fabulously, beautiful concept cars get dummed down to complete ugliness by the time they reach production.
BEHIND-THE-SCENES: One of my friends asked to be included in a comic, so the designer character is him. Another friend designed a character and the engineer is an interpretation of that character. Then another asked to include him in a comic as a ninja-monkey named “Pladimir Vutin”. I got the ninja-monkey part but not the name… at least not yet. heh.
22 hrs: Illustrator+Photoshop+Wacom


Still working with my outlining. I’m wondering if I should have gone just a hair thicker on this one.

Nicely done, Frenzi. I love the whimsical commentary.

I do like the idea of some tangible way of tracking our individual progression, Rob. It’ll mean a lot to most of us to see how far our styles have developed in a year, I’m sure. I’ll second Frenzi’s inquiry, and see if I can get the hubby to set the scorecard up for me.


Thanks RedPeril! Nice work yourself. Your work is looking better and better. And I’ll attest to the “Pray before you plumb”. I’ve had a few plumbing disasters myself, and those were not happy days. :banghead:

I think I may have a tip for you RedPeril. When you color your scan (I’m assuming you’re drawing it by hand on paper, scanning it and then coloring it Photoshop). After you select the area to color go to a separate layer and expand the selection (Select/Modify/Expand) a couple or more pixels and then fill that selection with color (on a different layer. Keep all your lines apart from the colors and make one or more layers of colors). Then on the Layer pallet, turn the layer property to “Multiply”. That way your colors will blend over the top of your line work and those white gaps between the color and the lines will not be there. Hope that helps.


Lol. Those were awesome guys! :thumbsup:
