In the last few months, I`ve been finalizing the script of Reminiscence. I`ve written paragraphs of what happens and the general gist of how the characters feel and what they say to each other, but I haven`t written what they`re doing, what their expressions are and I have no actual dialogue yet. That is what I`ll be focusing on as of now. I`ll be drawing my way through the story to search for ways how…

See this little fox right here below? He crept his way into the blogposts and I like him already. He`s going to help out with illustrating the points that I make. I`m not a photographer, but I am an artist, so why not use little illustrations for the articles right? I also love drawing foxes, so…win-win. I think I`m ready to make the jump and start the next phase of the Reminiscence comic, story wise.…

Here it is, the last blogpost of 2013. I wish you all a very good 2014 and I hope to bring you all interesting content in 2014! Here is a recap of what I did in 2013 and a look at what I am planning for 2014. I hope to post much more drawings and actual work in progress of both Reminiscence and my portfolio. There will be a small gap in the progress in…

The last of the four main characters of Reminiscence is Robbie. When I thought of the story, his character and looks were the clearest to me and the ideas I had for his appearance influenced my decision about the style and which time periods I was going to get my reference from. Robbie has always looked up to people. He is the youngest of his large family and when he and Ivory got to be…

Back again, with the design process of the third main character of the Reminiscence comic, Ivory. This post will talk about how I try to incorporate not only the personality traits of the characters, but also the important elements of their own story-arc in their design. For a long time all my characters looked the same. My visual library of facial features and body types just wasn’t very big. I had learned drawing by drawing…

A good character design “reads well” which means the silhouette of the character is clear and appealing and people don`t have to second-guess how the character looks or don`t get distracted by unnecessary details. For the next main character of the Reminiscence comic, Max, the challenge laid in his silhouette. Here he is, along with the description of his character: Bern and Max know each other since their early school days. As the son of…

Continuing the crafting a story series, the following weeks will focus on the design part of the Reminiscence webcomic. I`m starting off with how I got to the final design of the main characters. This week, the protagonist of the story: Bern. As the son of the two regents of the city of Narrati, Bern feels the responsibility to become a leader, just like his parents. But he`s unsure about his own wishes and keeps…
