Hey Nashya!

I don't know if you shared this with us before but I'm very curious about what's the process of making a comic page. I know how you color them (which is very effective and time efficient btw!) but I want to know how you incorporate the backgrounds in there too.

The backgrounds are so...DETAILED! And I pay close attention to them because they're lovely. And the characters always pop out with them as well. But, do you paint the backgrounds seperately and paste them in or do you paint bgs panel by panel (that sounds painful...).

Oh and one more question! About your word bubbles. Do you draw them yourself because they don't look like how you would use the lasso tool with. If you do use the lasso tool...that's talented. *laughs* Sorry to ask so many questions. I'm trying to do a comic myself and I find your ways very inspiring.

Edit: I think I posted in the wrong section! *just noticed* Sorry. Move this if you need to!

I had some of those questions myself. I always wonder how she keeps the backgrounds consistent (like when viewing the same scene from difference angles). Same thing with the lighting/shading. If you ever get a chance, you should do a little tutorial.

I'd also be very interested in hearing how Nashya goes from idea to comic form.
I never know where to start.

I was looking through her deviantART gallery and she has a couple tutorials/making-of things in there. They're really cool :D

Yeah i've always wondered about that too. I'm trying to get a comic together myself but it's kind of complicated getting a layout and placing the bubbles in the right places. ^^;

I don't have the link at the moment but there was a book by an american cartoonist on the art of paneling and different ways to space them out and design them along with layouts and bubbling for different stories and situations within the stories. I'll look it up now. :-)

But like Seitou said, Nashya also has wicked cool tutorials on her devianart. ;)
