    I see, that's good ^^ Sai is easy to pick up~ I'm travelling around a few programs depending on what I do too, Sai is definitely the easier one! Have fun :3

    i wanna try my hand at a comic not action based more on slice of life stuff, with potential romcom
    though honestly lol im not well versed in romance so thats part of the challenge i suppose o - o;

    1) cause i read a romcom and now im influenced
    2) theres many situations that id have to draw in a comic because of plot pacing that makes for good practice

    i hope that overtime my artstyle during this would change for the better
    and ill be working character designs and thinking of a plot before jumping into actually making the comic
    id probs have to decide on the paper size i dont think ill do like manga panels cause theres some small space left out

    ill spoiler my other finished stuff and then segment the 1st post to have the pages of the comic linked

    also havent considered last names yet

    also need to solve my current problem of managing text

    it's not going to be paragraphs per page but there's bound to be long exchanges at some point and my handwriting below is poo tier

    im thinking of using paint or word and then copying a screenshoot of those to manipulate on sai once the images are done



    also would need to consider each main character's wardrobe
    school uniforms are set, more diversity and playing around with the casual set

    don't want to complicate the design too much but they need to be defining
    -------

    that skirt is "tied" not just "worn like regular

    short to medium hair is the intention
    might consider including hair growth later on over time

    GIMP is a good free program to add text. Also an ok art program itself though I've never used it for anything major.

    just gunna work with word docs for now while i get this sorted out, use comic sans as the font for most of it

    names might change, starting to get partial to sam for the girl above since a gender neutral name would emphasize with her tomboyish nature

    for the mc below debating between "ace" or "jun"

    hands need work i know = 3=

    ill start working on test scenes just to see how coloring and dialogue works
    i already know how i want the 2 existing character to interact with each other
    its just getting consistency with like the comic paper size etc

    test run
    i dont intend to make all panels as minor edits
    the scene just manages to make do with it

    ill try out the gimp stuff later for text

    character coloration is probably fine like this, the clothes will vary so there's leniency there

    since its the 2nd iteration of the characters im pretty sure theres going to be inconsistencies up until i get used to making them
