High on Life Preview [Issue # 20; for June 2017] and process on how I make webcomics

UPDATE: May 22, 2017
Hello guys,
Here’s the cover page and the process on how I make my indie/webcomics. I’m going to start making issue # 20 for June 2017, “High on Life” Chapter 1 come June. I’ve also updated my online portfolio site this past weekend:

If you think I fit your needs for a graphic artist/illustrator, just message so we can talk and let’s see if we can do something, okay? Thanks!

So, here’s my process. There are a lot of ways to do this and I’m not saying this is the best way because you can do all this digitally. I am just sharing my own process:
First off, I pencil the page:

And then, I ink over my pencils using technical pens and markers:

Now, I scan the inked illustration at 300 dpi to have my lineart ready and then I will clean it on Photoshop:

Lastly, I put flat colors for the lineart. This is the cover page. Sometimes though, I paint it digitally but most of the time since I started adding colors to the cover pages of my indie/webcomics, I just put flat colors into it. And that’s it. It’s done.

Cheers,
Vin

Rappler’s list of Filipino Webcomic Artists to follow (I’m on the list!)

May 6, 2017

Hey there,

I want to thank Ms. Nile Villa of Rappler.com for including me on the list of Filipino webcomic artists to follow.
Visit their site to view the list, click the link below. 😀

I’m not sure if they’d put you on the list as long as your webcomic is made by a Filipino. Albeit, you can count on your fingers the number of webcomics made by Filipinos based in the Philippines. We really do have a small local indie/webcomics industry here in Manila. Let’s support each other. 😀

[ISSUE # 19] A Trip Way Down Memory Lane and Some Gags

May 1, 2017

Hi guys,

You can now read the latest issue of Killer Kamote Komiks, “A Trip Way Down Memory Lane and Some Gags”; issue # 19. This issue is a bit short on pages as there are only 10 comics pages but I got something really good coming out soon, hopefully in June, if not, then it will come out July. 😀

I work on my indie/webcomics on and off for a few hours everyday/every other day or so whenever I’m free from freelance illustration/graphic design gigs. 😀 It takes some time for me to come up with ideas for my comics. But, you guys can’t say I’m lazy because I create new content almost every month. 😀

Thank you for your time!

Cheers,
Vin
