Skip to comments.Pcottraux's Latest Pitiful Attempt at FR Cartooning
Posted on 09/09/2005 12:58:34 PM PDT by pcottraux
Here is my third try. After low readership and few responses, I press onward. If I decide to do this regularly, Fridays sound like a good time. I could call it my "Friday Night FReeptoons" or something.
shark is right - keep it up I say
Here are links to the last two:
This one's gotten as many views already as the last one did altogether. Maybe things are looking up.
I gotta say, your amateur cartooning is a hell of a lot better than my attempts!
They'd be a bit easier to read (and look more professional) if they were darker and not so "faded" looking. Try tweaking them in Photoshop or whatever, or change the settings when you scan them in.
Don't give up...I post "comical" things now again, and the response is sometimes dismal.
Keep posting them and create your own website. Post the URL (and comics) on your profile page, and maybe use the URL as your tagline.
Just an idea.
NOrmally, I retrace all the lines with pen, like I did in the second one, but that I was too lazy to do it this time. I'll try your advice, too. I need all I can get.
"This one's gotten as many views already as the last one did altogether."
If at first you don't succeed....
Do you have Photoshop?
Response has been low so far, but those who do respond are very positive. If it weren't for that, I would have given up by now.
Gotta give credit where credit is due:
The thread title is fair.
I am sticking my tongue out at you. Nyaahh!!!
Good cartoons! Keep it up and thanks for sharing them!
Then I would ink them like you have been doing.
But if you ever get Photoshop, I can help you with some shortcuts you will love.
I'll remember that. Inking worked, I was just too lazy to do it last night. Live and learn.
How old are you?
