RIP Miss OC

Tue May 20, 2014, 6:49 PM
So, the Miss OC contest I have been participating in for the last year or so has pretty much exploded. Ah well. It was an excuse to draw some characters in some situations, and it worked! No regrets here.

Fellow former contestant :iconsephiramy: is doing a journal feature showcasing the works of some of the other former-contestants. I recommend you >>check it out<<!


Yes, I'm doing a journal feature for a journal feature. Will the meta never stop??

How do yo keep track of all the bubble colors while keeping each one unique? I'm doing something similar in my own comic and am finding it daunting to keep track of for readers.

Good question! Let me see if I can come up with things to say...

Well, first of all, bubble colours don't work alone. You still have to link the bubble to the character with a tail. Readers shouldn't have to remember what colour bubble each character uses. You can cheat sometimes, preferably if the colours are linked to characters elsewhere in the same page, if they're frequently-seen characters, or if you don't want people to know who's speaking anyway.

Second, choose colours that you naturally associate with the character. Green for Nitrine, for example. Also making different characters' colours as different as possible is good, especially for characters that are often together. If you need even more variation, you can sometimes alter the colour of the text as well as the bubbles. I find that to be an annoying extra step, so my main characters all have default black text ^^;

Third, to keep track of colours myself, what I usually do... .... is open an old comic file and colour-pick the bubbles I need :D But I do that for all colours.

Hope that helps!

Love your comic strip. I stop by almost daily. I've noticed you are posting more often recently. Followed the link in the posts there to your pages.

Thank you for your time and imagination.

Just curious. I got nothing but scripts when I went to your comic. On refresh as well. Am I the only one or is something up...?

Awesome. I was just concerned. Opening a website and seeing all the HTML can be worrisome. Especially since I just finished HTML classes >_>;
