Chromosgen first page - Comparison by shadow-inferno Chromosgen first page - Comparison by shadow-inferno
Hey guys,

a quick comparison of the first page. 
On the left is a redone version, with the lines in ink with a nib/dib pen
The right is a redone version on different paper, but with a thicker (and simpler/faster) permanent marker.
The second paper is actually whiter than the left one (which is slightly yellowish..) 

I plan on redrawing the comic so far, since I'm still figuring out the stoeytelling etc.
Coloring will be done with colored pencils.
My question; which one do you like better? (I'm talking about the lines, not the coloring)
Any other comment is also appreciated, though.

I've not read too much into your backstory but I've looked at a lot of your images, I want to say the left because it has sharper lines and is clean and cut. The right one would be for good if the story was taking a more comedic route though and was a laid back piece but if the piece has a series tone then I would go with the left.

I Prefer the left one, It looks much more dynamic and clean less distractions on working out what detail is what:) It seems much more eye catching and I love looking at the little details, The finer lines make great for the background wher as thicker might be nicer to define the characters, Both are good :) i prefer the left!
Can't belive you are redoing the the comic :3 excited to see how it looks!

Thanks a lot for replying so fast!
I guess it makes more sense to have finer lines and maybe thicker for panel borders etc?
Im also not of whether or not to use black areas for shading or do it all with colored pencils instead :s

Yep, I'm redoing it, I liked most first pages, but some stillblook quite messy. And the later ones look quite rushed, especially with the lack of backgrounds in some panels.
(Although in some a bg might be too distracting)
And besides the new paper i got works better with both inks and pencil :nod:
Thanks again! :glomp:

:heart: no problem!!

It seems to work best having finer lines for backgrounds, of course if the focus is the background you can mix ans match thickness of lines :) I have a tendancey to shade with colour rather than harsh blacks, unless the lighting calls for it, Given that your using traditional mediums i think using a darker shade would work better than going right into black, I think it would give it a cleaner overall look!

:D I can;t wait to see it redrawn you have improved alot with your art over the years, so im excited to see the differences!

I'm not sure how much improvement there'll be.. The comic isn't thát old, and I haven't exactly drawn much the past years :(
I've finished page 1 and 2, hopefully I can upload them today or tomorrow or so.
