Background questions

Postby towerofdoubt » Mon Jun 08, 2015 12:09 pm

Hello, it's been a long time. I had a question about inconsistencies in art. I plan to make a webcomic soon, and is it a bad idea if the characters and objects are drawn with a solid, noticeable line while the background is painted? Everything will be colored of course, but would that be too distracting/inconsistency of style?

I think a better question would be to know if the style you wanna bring to your webcomic will help the story and the mood of your comic . Trying to do as much as you can on purpose is really important . Most of the time the " general rule " says that thick lines better represent static stuff, while thin or blurry lines is more about movement. in some comics, where dialogs are important, and character are most of the time standing in a static pose, use of heavy lines is quite nice, but then, dunno what your webcomic is about ! maybe try a few pages this way and drop them here to get some critics ?

here is a sample of what my comic will look like. im doing a small one shot as a test. I'm going for thin line art and the story will be intended for mature audiences.
