Lady Troubles by ChaosKomori Lady Troubles by ChaosKomori
'Tis assignment 3 from my Materials and Techniques class with Prof Tom Lyle. Specifics? Must be a four-panel comic using ink and watercolor. Then we had to scan it and letter it on the comp. Hooray, Lyle liked my spot blacks. I might be getting the hang of it, mayhaps.

This is a random out-of-my-head scene that has no particular backstory. Though I suppose Axel (the bat guy) would have trouble with the ladies. Seems like a thing for him to be doing, though I've never quite solidified his whole shpeal. *shrug*

... And is that Tombstones giving Axel advice? ... Nah, couldn't be. Must be some random monkey.

Hmm, I like this realistic approach even better than the cartoony one. 8-)

If it wasn't for the love thing, and the fact they're in a bar, some recoloring of the characters would make this something you could put in the NT as a Spooky comic

yeah! A comic about a bat character and in a bar! definitely on my watch list as I am working on a webcomic about a bar owned by a bat (and mostly catering to bats and dragons but also to the other animal characters like marsupials due to the Australian location).

Oh wow. This is so cute. And really amazing. But.. what kind of bat is that?? I've never seen a bat with a nose like that.

But the monkey (aka Tombstones) is so funny. xD

Awesome work, Komori. I absolutely love the shady atmosphere in the bar and all the datails... (the bottles!). How long did it take you to finish it?

Erm, I think it took 8 or 9 hours for the inks, and another 9 for the watercolors. XD

Wow, that's awesome. 0_0 The blacks are lovely, and of course the expressions are great. I love the washed-out look of the colors. I have to say my favorite panel is the one with the girl. :3 Squee, she's so cute, and the little lamp and instrument posters against the brick wall make it feel like the back of a bar. ^^

It can't be Tombstones!! He doesn't have a hoodie! :giggle:

I really love how you colored this. It really suits the gritty feel bars have. And Axel is really cute. So sweet!

I really like your spot blacks too. It's awesome that Professor Lyle liked them too. I can see why he does though. They really add to the mood of the picture.


By the way, how did you letter this?

:iconchaoskomori:
ChaosKomori Featured By Owner May 21, 2007
Well, we had to letter it in Photoshop, so I scanned it, and lettered it there, and drew the bubbles there too.

Great comic^^. It's really cute. You did a sweet job on the coloring and I really enjoy that second panel. His expression is very nice and I like how you have him tune out the other guy by putting the speech bubble behind him......Not sure if that made much sense (sp?). ^^;
