Justin Llamas was born in 1990, being 15 years old as of 2006, 16 in September. He has been drawing little comics all his life, starting with two 100-paged Phantasy Star Online fan comics and another comic of his own named Kayanu. Unfortunately none of the 3 made it online.
Justin's newest comic, LOGO, has been online since about late 2005 or so. Justin has no my space or anything like that, but he does have a DeviantART site.
His favorite animals are pandas, his favorite color is blue, he loves dancing, singing, and drawing of course! Thank you for taking the time to read all about Justin Llamas.
The tools I use are the cheapest you'll ever find! So if you want your comic to look like mine, then all you have to do is go to the Dollar Store!!!
For inking,I use a small gel ball-point pen. Any kind is good for me. Don't forget an eraser to erase all of the pencil markings after you ink!
For penciling,I use a normal mechanical pencil. Any lead size will do. Sometimes I'll use a normal pencil, but it doesn't matter to me.
For toning,I use Adobe Photoshop 7.0. I know what you're thinking. THAT'S EXPENSIVE!!! Well, it wasn't actually. If you're cheap like me, or just poor, you can borrow it from your friend (which I did) and put it on your computer. If you're still confused on how to tone, just email me. It's easy, but kinda a lot to explain.. Oh, for more advanced toning and more of a selection of tones, you can also use Comic Works!
For size specifications, I use the TOKYOPOP mechanical specs. which you can print off from their website.
WHAT I DO
So, wondering how I use all of my tools above? Okay, this is how it goes.
1st, I start by drawing with my pencil on a paper, with the TOKYOPOP template taped underneath it. That way, I can see the lines through the paper, so I know how far to draw. So I work hard and finish drawing, then...
2nd, I ink my drawing. I go over the whole thing with my pen, very carefully because it's not erasable. After I'm done inking, I go over my whole picture with my eraser to get rid of all the pencil markings. Finish that up and then...
3rd, I scan my drawing onto the computer and open it up onto Adobe Photoshop 7.0 or Comic Works, then I 'tone it. Haha, you're done already. Unless you're planning on putting your comic onto the net, which means a LOT of resizing. Thanks for reading!
