Hey, /aco/ tonight I am sharing with you the first issue of my independent comic BLACK BUDGET.

it's erotic espionage conspiracy action

like the Manchurian Candidate but sexy.

Trauma-based mind control.

Lets get started:

I draw every panel on an individual sheet of paper, I try to do each panel at least twice the size it will appear in the printed version -though my scanner sometimes limits me in this respect

The typeface used in the comic is an original one designed by a friend of mine- I like the look of it but it takes a fuckload of kerning when setting it.

though I do certainly draw it all by hand, there is more editing in photoshop of the drawings than I like to admit. thank fucking god for the clone stamp tool

Again, there are more re-used assets throughout the book than i would prefer- but I had deadlines for events selling the printed copies to consider.

If you appreciate the images and the commentary, how about a bump for the artist?
amphetamines preferred.

The top panel of this page is a good example of the flexibility that photoshop affords. the marching soldiers, the standing soldiers and the country were all drawn separately and then assembled. this allowed me to make them large enough to get the detail I wanted and still scan them

We're really getting into it now. A page like this with a predominantly dark background is something that takes a lot of photoshop editing. after I put all the work in to the edge quality of the figures and furniture I am wary about piling on the black to make a dark bg. polygonal lasso is essential.

This page is my masterpiece, the top panels figurative layout is a reference to a The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt

In the second panel, pay close attention to the computer. How many lights are there in each row?

funny story about this page: This image actually started out as an assignment in art school. I had a class in my final semester called Erotic Illustration. for the final we all got to choose and illustrate a fetish. mine was HYPNOSIS.

This is a digital painting, originally in color. Ill post that at the end
