You using manga studio to do this?
I like moving forward, so I took everyone's advice and applied it to page 4. I'll go back and try to tweak the other pages, but this allows me to feel like I'm finishing faster.
Thanks! Actually it's good old fashioned Photoshop. =)
Straight lines are easy. I just use the mouse and shift click along. Curved lines just take a strange touch born from years of working with it. I suppose I would be a bit faster with Manga Studio (maybe), but any speed I gain from the auto smooth I lose by the fact that I'm trying to start a new program when I've been using photoshop for about 12-15 years.
Nice page, Jeromy! I really like panel one with the star-fighter flying into the hangar bay. Panel two is good also with Anakin stepping from the cockpit. I like the variation in POV and perspective in panel 3.
The main crit I come up with on this page is the tangent between Anakin's legs in panel two and the battle-droid's legs directly below them in panel 4. The droids legs are drawn at such a size that it almost makes a complete figure if you remove the panel break (albeit a weirdly twisted one ). If you can correct that I think you've got a really effective page that is interesting to look at and flows quite nicely.
Thanks, Sean! I think Panel 1 may be my favorite of the panels I've done so far. Good eye on that tangent. I've adjusted it... Hopefully it's enough.
Thanks, Alex. Thanks, P.R.
The next page will be really cool if I can pull it off. I'm really going to try and push the action and really make an effort at capturing that speed you see in the saber work in the movies.
