A Little Comic Tutorial by cocoaferret A Little Comic Tutorial by cocoaferret
A tutorial showing my process! This was the comic I used as a sample XD :

'Little' my foot! D:< Wooooow, this is super long! I didn't think it would be so huge! sheesh....

Anyways, same format as the watercolor tutorial; I feel like a step-by-step guide keeps the focus c:

And I hope I didn't immediately turn you off because I use a different program! Like I said, a lot of these techniques should be just the same on higher versions of photoshop, among other programs.

And I apologize for not showing you ALL the special effects I use, but the thing is I don't have a very good grasp of them myself!

I don't do cell shading and other sparkly trappings as often as my regular ol' drawing and coloring. I wouldn't want to give you my mediocre advice on that just yet ^^;

But I hope this might be a good place for you to start! :>

Thank You! I'm stuck with Photoshop Elements 6 until I can earn the money for my own copy of CS6. This is going to help for the time being.

Not a problem at all, dear!

Honestly I must say, I've had only PSE6 for the past 5 years- I think it's just as good as CS6 once you know how to use it! But really, I'm sure you'll do great either way~ best of luck to you! ; )

ALEXA PLEASE SEE THIS AND HELP ME!!! Okay so every time I use the fill when doing the thing with the word bubbles my text gets blocked out by whatever the fill color is. How do I make this not happen?

HI JIMMU YES I SEE THIS!

It's probably that the fill needs to be on its own separate layer, under the text layer!

HOLY HELL I use photoshop elements too ;A; no one else does for comics, and I didn't even realize it was you that made this tutorial until halfway down.
This has saved me. No one else uses photoshop elements for mac -___- thank you very much.
On another note, love your comics XD

This is a great tutorial! I did my borders and then when I went to draw the sketch the lines were blurry. I was using the same brush, but all of the lines I tried drawing were all pixel-y and not crisp like the ones in this tutorial. Is that because of the resolution or my zoom or something?
