How to Background: A Guide
Manga and Anime Week
    
    In my experience, backgrounds are often seen as difficult and/or challenging, especially by beginning artists, and many tend to avoid complex ones in the beginning. A mix of scary technical terms such as 'perspective', 'composition', 'lighting', 'values' and so forth is often associated with them, which can easily seem overwhelming. And, since backgrounds can sometimes very much be considered as pieces of art on their own; they requires essentially as many various skills as drawing anything else.
    Having struggled my way through this myself, I'd like to share some advice and my thoughts on approaching more complex backgrounds or how to start. It's definitely not the only or the 'right' way to approach backgrounds, and of course I'm still learning too, so I just hope you find this advice useful!

Character Consistency - A Massive Tip Collection
Anime and Manga Week
                                                            

My protagonist during concept phase.
During my journey to try to bring my webcomic to life, I have been extensively studying and focusing on cool action poses, interesting backgrounds and fancy shading... only to find that there’s nothing more frustrating than not being able to draw your own characters properly. 
Let’s face it, as much as acquiring any fundamental skill will help you in the long-run, in the end your characters are the heart of your story and nothing will happen without them. In order to tackle my biggest issue, I have accumulated tips, tricks, and folders of tutorials that I’ll summarise here for other webcomic artists in training.

Hi, Chinchongcha. You have a nice gallery, especially the colors.

On some of your drawings, the hands are sometimes small and the faces are too similar (I do the same). If you really want to improve, you should use more reference photos. You can also look at 3d models on sketchfab, for example.

Comme d'hab: j'avance au ralenti.
J'essaie de continuer mon projet d'animation 3d mais la modélisation (voire la texture) m'ennuie. Je devrais peut-être faire des bonshommes bâtons pour tout simplifier. :D

Et toi, ça va? Même si tu ne dessines plus, continues-tu d'écrire des histoires?

Réponse courte: non.

Réponse plus longue: non, mais une part de moi est assez idiot pour se dire que je devrais me botter le cul et n'en continuer, mais après bah... Voir mon dernier journal si tu arrives à lire mon anglais. ^^;

Yo! Tu peux juste m'appeler Jekyll (ou Géry, ça marche aussi! ^^) Yep, mon cher Youpi est mon personnage récurent, mais que je ne bosse clairement  pas assez! ^^

Bonjour! Merci beaucoup pour l'ajout.

Ton style est très intéressant. Beaucoup de noir et blanc (j'aime particulièrement tes clairs obscurs) mais la colo de Nova est extraordinaire. :D

En plus, je vois que nous vivons dans le même pays. Au plaisir de te rencontrer peut-être lors d'une convention. :)

Comme quoi mes affiches n'auront pas été inutiles. :)

Merci de t'y être intéressé, alors. J'espère que tu y as vu des choses qui pouvaient te plaire à plaire à certains. C'est le but de cette page. Je songe à poster un nouveau scénario, d'ailleurs.

Au plaisir.

Merci d'avoir mis ma "Jessica Storm" dans tes favoris. Je t'avoue que je n'en suis pas très satisfait. Je trouve qu'il y a des défauts : cou trop long, lèvres, ...
Comme je prépare une BD avec Jessica Storm, j'essaierai de mieux la dessiner. :) (Smile)
