I had to give up humor for story but there's plenty of action in this comic page. Everyone's been upset with J and his stressed out behaviour so it's nice to see him get back to meditating. Let's hope this will help turn things around for him. This page was really fun to draw because working in Manga Studio, long pages like this are much easier to create. The colors were done in Photoshop. I really wanted it to feel like a Pokemon episode so I gave some of the people in the crowd crazy hair colors like green and orange. It was difficult to decide what Ninjoggle should be screaming at the end. At first, I wanted him to just yell "Ninnnnjoooggle!" when Kissup hit him with that powerful blow. I changed it to "AAAAAH!" so that it would transition well to J waking up and yelling "AH!" I think it worked out pretty well. Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading.
I've been looking forward to drawing this Pokemon inspired comic for a long time! J and Ryan begin their Jokemon battle with Ninjoggle and Kissup by their sides. Who will win? You can let us know your opinion in the Do you think J's job will send him to Japan topic in the FORUMS. For those of you with an interest in my art process, I drew sketched and inked this comic page entirely on computer using the MANGA STUDIO software and a Wacom Bamboo tablet. It's a new software to me so I'm still learning but It's amazing how all of the tools in the software make it easier to draw comics on the computer. No paper! If you're a comic artist, you should give it a try. Hope you like it. Thanks for reading!
