Whoops, indoor voice...Hey there!
So I haven't posted anything in a bit (big surprise, hey?) but that's totally not for lack of not doing art stuff. In fact, I got some stuff soon, but I've a technical question, and anyone who can spit some knowledge my way is more than welcome to share.
Specifically, I've got a (somewhat) short comic that I was originally going to post as a regular column of panels, but i think it might be better presented a little differently.
The comic itself is a repeating square panel, "shot" from a single angle, with a single background, with characters and dialogue changing from panel to panel. It's also 20+ panels long, so rather than stitching them all together into one big column or grid, I thought it would be more fun to view as a single panel that changes and progresses as you click left or right.
Sounds simple, yeah? Only thing is...I've never done that
. And I could use some help in figuring out how.
My first guess would be some manner of Flash software, but A) I've only got Photoshop and Illustrator, and B) I don't have the faintest idea how to use Flash in the first place. Is there a different program--or indeed, something already built into dA--that could accomplish this?
Worst case scenario, there isn't, and I just go ahead and post a big, fat comic strip. But I think this one would be a little more fun if you can't "cheat" by looking ahead
Thanks in advance if anyone has some input!
Other than that, there's a lot more on the docket. The new site draws closer to going live, new story content work continues (so many pencils...yay/grr analog!), a follow up commission to Didi's "Full Bats" is in the works, and someone sufficiently twisted my arm into some epic Kaiju stuff as well (editor's note: it didn't take much)
This will be a very busy summer
I look forward to sharing!
