We got to do some more silly scifi acting in the DD webcomics podcast. :)
 
QUACKCAST 161 - The Gravy Train to the Stars
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-161-the-gravy-train-to-the-stars/

Content:
In this week's drunk Duck webcomics podcast we join our heroes attempting an ill-conceived hiking holiday on the surface of the sun... While they're getting over their stupidity let's talk about Quackcast 161! We asked people to contribute their own notions about what's cool and interesting in SciFi, as well as what they don' like and what they do not think works well. We had so many great contributions that we decided to split it into two parts, so you'll be able to catch another instalment of our space faring heroics!

This was a good chat with comic Writer, creator David Brenner about his comic project "Shades" and how he went about getting artists to work on the project with him- useful for writers out there who need an artist for their project!
 
UACKCAST 159 - Shades of DAJB

Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-159-shades-of-dajb/
Content:
In this Drunk Duck webcomics podcast Banes and I interview DAJB, a long time Drunk Duck regular! We talk to him about his work on the long running webcomic “Shades”. This is especially interesting since DAJB approached this comic as a professional work; as the writer but also the producer of the project, interviewing and hiring artists to work with him on the full production of the comic. Shades is a very British superhero comic, featuring a number of interesting characters such as the Celtic warrior queen Boadicea, or “Boo” as she's affectionately known, battling the forces of darkness in the modern UK. It's very exciting, fast paced and well written! Give it a read if you haven't seen it already :)
*I have to apologise for the sound issues here; it seems it recorded my (ozoneocean) voice with a delay so the conversation seems slightly out of order.

Pinky TA has updated finally: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Pinky_TA/5454349/ Pinky TA 8: Page 2

Page description:
That's Pinky there in that coat. ^_^
She's the boss here and apparently she's not much good at motivation.
 
Commentary:
I cannot believe it takes me 3 months or more to do pages. …?
If I was this slow in my paid work I would be OUT of work. My current theory is that the creative part of my brain has turned to wood, so it thinks at the pace trees grow. Expect Pinky TA to run for the next 400 years at a rate of one page per year.
I'm not joking… that much.

Banes returns to the Quackcast to join me on another interview with Jake Richardson of the very popular Modest Medusa! This time we get to find out more about Jake's comic making technique, his writing style, character creation, colour technique, drawing materials, programs and his whole work flow. I had wanted to get into this last time as well on Quackcast 155 but we had a great chat about the things you can do to make money from your webcomics instead. So now we get a full picture of what goes into the making of Modest Medusa! For example; did you know it's all drawn on paper and scanned? Neither did I! This is part one, part two will come out next week. Stay tuned!

Kawaiidaigakusei has written an interesting article exploring the effect that listening to music has on her drawing style.
 
Drawing Music and Its Impact on Webcomic Art
-original newspost here: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/news/2014/mar/24/drawing-music-and-its-impact-on-webcomic-art/

The world is a noisy place. It makes little difference whether noise is coming from a construction site outside the window, loud neighbors in a crowded apartment, or the supposedly “quiet” times in the middle of the night when the sounds of the crickets outside are amplified ten fold. I am sensitive to noise which is why I own a large headset that cancels out unwanted noise and sends a message to passersby that I am not in the mood to be disturbed. Music has a way to remember the past and listening to a particular song can bring all sorts of emotions to the surface.

When I am drawing a webcomic, background noise plays a significant role in the finished product. Having the right song (compared to being forced to listen to a song that makes me feel uncomfortable) allows me to go on autopilot and draw naturally. It is easier for me to express an emotion and show feeling in my work if I am listening to a song that gives me a similar feeling.

I decided to do a little experiment of my own and see if a noticeable change in my drawing technique would be reflected based on different types of music. I chose one very mellow and relaxing Bon Iver song, a very high energy dance mix by Skrillex, and a classical piano piece by Chopin.

EXHIBIT A.

Bon Iver (indie folk)

Results: I usually use this type of music to relax, so drawing while it is playing in the background would be my ideal afternoon. The only thing I noticed was that it took more time to draw because I was working at a slower pace because the music was SO peaceful. I prefer this type of music for sleeping or drafting, but definitey not at the gym.

EXHIBIT B.

Skrillex (dubstep)

Results: This is not the typical type of music I listen to when I draw. It actually made me use more pressure while I was drawing, resulting in bolder, darker lines. I do not have anything against dubstep music, but I can not use it for drawng music because it ended up stressing me out.

EXHIBIT C.

Frederic Chopin (classical)

Results: Classical music usually has a good reputation for productvity and this proved no different. This one was the most surprising because it deviated from the other two drawings the most. The final drawing has this ethereal, elegance and whimsy that I can only credit to my love of Chopin. It should also be noted that this was the final drawing I made in the set, so the improvement could have been as a result of warming up with the other drawings.

The results varied and reaffirmed my original idea that music plays a part in art output. I picked music that matched with my own particular style of drawing, whereas an artist with a very edgy art style would benefit more from listening to classic rock. This is a pretty fun activity to try on your own and could lead to a discovery of a new stylistic art style that can transform your work!

MILESTONE


The once featured comic,ANTI FEATURED, which discovers many of Drunk Duck's hidden treasures, by Locoma reached its 50th page milestone!

The comics selected in ANTI FEATURED are like those mystery grab bags with a hidden prize. Some are outright hilarious, while others are hiden gems. Locoma takes special consideration to read through the comic archive of the comics he features and writes well-thought out commentary in his author's notes. I highly suggest that you check out this comic, who knows, maybe you will find your comic featured in it.

Also, stay tuned for next Monday's newspost where I will get a chance to interview Locoma about his selection process for anti-featured comics!

QUACKCAST 158 - A very modern Modest Medusa, part 2
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-158-a-very-modern-modest-medusa-part-2/

Content:
In the second part of our interview with Jake Richmond of Modest Medusa Banes and I discuss with him topics like the use of gradients in comic art, background details, simplifying your artwork, cell shading, and the perils of covering up art with speech bubbles! This was not originally intended as a two parter but we chatted on with Jake after the Quackcast was over and he was so interesting, insightful, and on-topic that we didn't want to waste any of the chat we had with him.
