Recently I was watching a documentary on Stan Lee & Marvel Comics, which hosts my favorite comic characters, & I was inspired to start back working on a project I’ve had for years. When I was younger I came up with an idea of a troubled college student who stumbles upon powers. But one of the things that halted the project was the back & forth I would have to do to create the comic. I really hate the time it takes to pencil, scan, ink, color, etc etc. So I took a good look at the tools available on my favorite device, the iPad, & wondered would it cut down the time to produce it. The first tool I invested in was Celtx. I was amazed at some of the features it had especially for writing a comic. Here is some of the features:

CELTX
iOS (check the website for Android info)
-Page breaks, numbered pages & WYSIWYG output
-Pinch/zoom page & font size (50% to 400%)
-Reorder and delete full scenes
-Bold/Italic/Underline
-Add coloured notes
-Mores and Continueds
-White or parchment background
-AirPrint or email scripts as pdf and text files
-Universal app – buy it once and use on iPad iPhone & iPod Touch

So yeah, I used to use Scripts Pro but having a comic scripting template is just more convenient. Ive had the app for a couple of days & Ive already cranked out a lot of pages. You can even add a note wherever you want to stay on track with the outline of the story. The format of the scripting is so smooth that it made me jump over to Sketchbook Pro, which I’ll cover later, & start sketching panels & character placement.

Here’s a quick sketch of Wax done in Sketchbook Pro:

I’ll be making a Facebook page for this project which will be available in the next part of this series. But until then Like the @KornerGFX page HERE

The dawn of the mobile/digital artist is in full swing! As a graphic designer who utilizes different mediums to execute designs, mobile apps for graphic designers are a life saver. But picking the right app for you can be a tedious one though. I’ve compiled a list of my 3 favorite apps so far when I work on my iPad 2. Keep in mind the best way to see what is best for you is to try it!

Adobe PS Touch

PS Touch by far is my favorite photo editing app. I constantly use Photoshop CS5 on my laptop for the majority of my works so having it on my iPad 2 only makes sense. The app really easy to use so beginners shouldn’t have any troubles jumping right in. My biggest gripe about the app is moving layers. When repositioning layers you have to select a different tab with limited options so it because a bit of trial & error. But I’ve created some basic works with it so far so it has fairly good results. I love how Adobe has intergrated Creative Cloud so you can pull psd’s that you can upload to the service. But overall the main tools you use in the full version of Photoshop are there & at your disposal.

As you can see pretty much all of the traditional aspects of the full version are there. I tried to import a psd file that had a custom filter I created but the filter didn’t show up. But I can’t really complain when I have the basics of an app I use for most of my graphic work with me on the go! Out of the 3 apps I’ll be blogging about this one is a must!

Features:

Work with core Photoshop tools designed for tablets.
Use your tablet camera to fill area on a layer.
Select part of image to extract by scribbling.
Perform Google searches and share images on Facebook right in the app.
Sync files to Adobe Creative Cloud and open in Photoshop.²

It’s seeming like yesterday the days of a “snappy” jailbreak of the latest iOS software were upon us. With Apple’s launch on October 12th of the awesome, in my opinion, iOS5 software left people dazzled! But the jailbreak community pondered when the jailbreak would arrive? Including me. Still. Currently we have three DIFFERENT jailbreakers working to crack iOS5; iPhone-Dev, Chronic-Dev, AND NOW coming from a former member of the Chronic-Dev team, @pod2g.

I personally upgraded my own Apple gadgets to enjoy iOS5. But that’s only made the wait of an untethered jailbreak a humbling one to say the least. ModMyi has shown proof from @MuscleNerd that it IS possible:

pod2g’s tweet ensures what iPhone-Dev & Chronic-Dev have said, it’s possible. I can only imagine what all these jailbreakers are going through & seeing with working to release the untethered iOS5 jailbreak. But until then, we wait. And when, or should I say, IF Siri is ported iOS 5 could REALLY be mind blowing on your latest iDevice! The day I wake up, check Jailbreak.me, & perform a jailbreak on my iPad 2 will be a geat one indeed!

I admit, I’m a comic nerd to the heart. But because of certain personal things popping up I haven’t been able to keep up. Which in the comic world is the equivalent of missing a month in an advance college course. Whew! But with the new purchase of an iPad 2 I’ve been stocking up on my comic ebook collection. I must say I’ve been shocked with some of the new story lines this year to say the least. So let’s get to MY favorite comic moments of this year!

1. Jubilee joins the cast of Twilight?
I think the comic world would shatter if that happened, Lol. But to find out our favorite firework starter was bitten by Xaus & turned into a vampire was a very interesting twist. While struggling with her curse on the X-Men island, Utopia, Jubilee was also facing the fact that she lost her powers! Poor kid.

2. Nothing can stop the… Colossus?
In Uncanny X-Men #543 Juggernaut is up to his usual tricks but this time he’s super-charged by the powers given to him by Cyttorak. The team struggles to stop him but they have a bit of a problem because of his new power..he’s pretty much UNSTOPPABLE! The tin man offers to take Juggernauts place to Cyttorak in a plan to stop his rage. That’s right a super-charged & super-unstable Colossus is what we’re dealing with people… & nothing good can come of this I’m sure!

3. Is that the ghost of SpiderMan? Or No?
I was in complete awe when I heard of the death of SpiderMan! Hell, he’s one of my favorite superheroes! But the big whammy was when Marvel announced a new SpiderMan! Oy!!! But I sighed with relief when this new SpiderMan was created in the Ultimate Universe, because in that universe anything is possible. I cheered when Marvel revealed that this “new” SpiderMan would be a black & hispanic character!! SCORE! The new story line has me hooked already!

20111106-220816.jpg

4. Professor Wolverine??
That’s right, Logan is the new Headmaster..minus the wheelchair! I can’t help but to think of Wolverine in all kinds of Saved By the Bell shenanigans with the students, LOL. But I digress, after the “split” of the X-Men, Wolverine becomes the Headmaster of the Jean Grey School of Higher Learning. Cool name right? I personally am waiting on Wolvie to snap & leave. It wouldn’t surprise me.

I recently downloaded the iPhone app Scripts Pro created by Stephen M. Levinson. I was searching for the right app to script my webcomics/comics/motion comics on my phone since it’s just easier in my opinion. I stumbled across Scripts Pro and decided to give it a try.

It has several features I enjoy, the first being the “Scene” feature. This allows you to plot out your project shot for shot. With the scene feature you can set up your location & the time of day. Very handy.

Characters
This lets you keep a log of all the characters in the project. Once you type the first letter then character/s name will pop up.

Transitions
Once you have completed a scene you can add a transition. There are tons of transitions to choose from: Cut to, Fade out, Fade to Black to name a few. This is great when animating or editing a video.

You can use this app pretty much for any project, not just comics. Plus the handbook made it easy to learn this app. Scripts Pro is worth the purchase.

Here is the sketch of Octavia from Team T.S. ONE of the remaining members of the original team. Enjoy!

Here is an action piece of Blue (Team T.S.) entitled “SMASH!”. I’m working on my line art & coloring so when I publish the #webcomics they will look good.

"SMASH!"

"SMASH!"

So basically I hated the way one of my favorite shows from my childhood ended that I decided to remake it.

Here’s the back story of the 80’s show: “The members of the TigerShark team were humans who had to use a device called the Fish Tank in order to transform into their powered-up marine forms and enter it once again to revert back into their human forms. The TigerSharks’ base was a spaceship that could also go underwater. The ship was called the SARK and contained the Fish Tank, along with other research facilities.

The action took place in the fictional world of Water-O, which was covered almost completely by water. The planet was inhabited by a race of fish men called the Waterians. The TigerSharks arrived there on a research mission and ended up serving as the protectors of the planet against the evil T-Ray, who had arrived there beforehand.”

My Story: The “Great Flood” of 1988 destoryed California. People were contaminated & left with fish characteristics because of the toxins mixed in the water. The government sealed the ocean with the help of T-Ray, the main enemy of the original TigerSharks, because of his advance technology. An expensive cure was created & also a temporary cure to the less fortunate which caused a bigger riff in society. The majority of the first team were killed fighting against T-Ray’s army & T-Ray himself. Octavia & Walro are the remaining members of the original TigerSharks. By 3013, Octavia & Walro keep them selves preserved with special formulas that theyve created. Their only hope is in a highschool graduate by the name of Mako, named after the first teams leader.

I’ll leave it there and let the story unfold as I upload the episodes. Suspense people.

Here are some stills of the new cast though to tie you over:
