The thumbnail for this particular #HWAcomic page was extra hilariously bad and deformed, so here’s a glow-up 😎🔥
I was red-penning/editing #HWAcomic hardcopy on the plane and cringing at all my bad lettering/bubbling choices and bad drawings (even tho at max they’re 2 years old) 💀TBH a big part of this is just me taking 1+ years of drawing/prototyping to figure out what your chara are meant to look like 😇 haven’t even done a speech/voice pass yet 🐌
@jendrawscomics 🎷 Good morning 🎷
@fluffyfied it is so fun 😂 I haven't played any mods, but I played multiplayer a while back and was just leeching off my friend who was rich and had a production line of high-selling produce and wine haha. I was in charge of taking care of the animals.
It's hard to set boundaries with this game
Blitzing through chapter 10 inks/tones #HWAcomic 💀
Hmmm... cross structure binding #HWAcomic lays flat with no glue. I thought about riso but maybe I’ll just do two diff cover colour stocks instead 🧐?? So many options... so much effort 😭
@fluffyfied the lighting from the phone on the figure is SPOT ON! Lovely~
@fluffyfied Ohh thank you for reading!! Their loggersports hobby more or less disappears after chapter 4 LOL sorry in advance!!!!
It's always nice to meet up with fellow creators and talk shop about comic-making. BR was scrolling through my latest #HWAcomic chapter on his phone and telling me about all the things he liked/admired about it. So generous...normally I get zero compliments on my stuff so I was screaming internally about it. I think he is one of <4 people I know who read my comic, which is pretty good considering my lack of promotion
Spent too much time playing https://overfull.itch.io/plantdaddy
Some WIP because I couldn’t find much visual reference for in-progress steps.
1) You start with 2 separate covers. Back cover A has straps, and the front cover B has the spine + slots to accept straps. Thread A straps into B slots (cut at bottom face/edge of spine)
2) Open the book and sew the signatures to the threaded straps on the inside
3) thread strap through another set of cut slots, at top edge/face of spine
4) thread strap through another set of cut slots, on front cover
@rainfruit great dane???
Trying a no-glue way of getting bookblock/signature to stick to spine/cover! This is cross structure binding ‘linked’ (see: http://www.outofbinding.com )
Prototype made with misprints 👻 I’m impressed with how sturdy it is 🤩 the trimmer is leaving indents on my stock, maybe I shouldn’t be pressing down as hard 🧐
I think the spine is at risk of getting crushed during trimming if your measurements aren’t precise
@fluffyfied I'm thinking about it because it means I don't have to spend a lot of money to print books that won't really sell 😂 it's the tradeoff between my money/physical space and my time haha
Yeah I'm glad to have different signature colours, glad you think it looks good too!!!!
I still have 2 chapters to ink hahaha, but this prototype book flips like a *dream* after trimming...so nice...! Getting hype!!
I followed the kettle stitch video from Sea Lemon bit.ly/BindingMethods all of their vids are very easy to follow!
Thinking about getting a curved binding needle because it was hard to get a straight needle underneath the stitches as the signature block became more tighter
