What I use to make comics

  • Published: 29 May 2018
  • It's been a while. Getting back into the groove of things with a quickie video. Just answering a question I got on tumblr about what I use to make comics. Which is an ipad pro, an apple pencil, and the app procreate. If you are a person that reads descriptions before watching the youtube video then I am sorry for spoiling literally the whole video for you. But at the same time you kinda did this to yourself, didn't you? Yes you did. Why would you do that?

    I used Adobe Animate for this one. It was kind of a pain. I am realizing there is no perfect animation software. At least for how I animate. I might make my own animation software some day. It would be web based so no download, maybe easy collaboration capabilities. That would be cool. Gunna wait for web assembly to mature a bit before I dive head first into that. For now I will begin work on another video.

    What do you guys use to animate and is it any better than Adobe Animate? Adobe Animate does this dumb thing where if you select a frame, then all vectors in the frame get selected and it will not unselect all vectors even if you navigate away from the frame. So when you preview the animation the selected vectors look like they are flickering during playback. Super annoying I hate it.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video!

I animate on YouTube and tried doing comics on my Deviantart, but wasn't sure if Autodesk Sketchbook or Photoshop were "ideal" for comic drawing. Never heard of ProCreate, but interesting!

                                                                                    I'm considering buying a drawing program, but i don't know which one. The issue is i got a tablet with a screen, but most programs don't fit correctly with the screen size. I wanted to use krita really bad, but the drawing space could, at most, take up like 1/6 of the screen or something. It just forces the sides to be really big. Currently I use Fire Alpaca. It's great and free, but i want to look into animating, and all it has is a simple onion skin that turns the layers into frames and let's you make it into a gif. Really, i just need a timeline and something that doesn't look janky. I'm not low on money in the slightest, but I'd rather not drop a lot on Photoshop or that one you mentioned only to have it give me a workspace the size of a flashcard.

                                                                                    • Alex Kyle
