Glad I found this…I am pretty sure I found it at the plasq forum tonight. Maybe twitter, anyway I hope you are still around. I like what you did and am enjoying looking around. My comic is about my life as well. I am going to make this my link of the day on my comic tomorrow. Talk to you soon.

Thanks for commenting, I’m afraid I’ve neglected my blog for a while, but I hope to do more soon!

Love it. Great merging of different elements. Very inspirational. Question: what photo processing do you employ? I’m envious.

Hey, thanks! I’m still learning and developing my craft… I use photoshop to “comicify” my photographs. I also use a comic program, Comic Life, for layout and text. You can download Comic Life inexpensively at plasq.com. The program comes with filters to turn your photos into comics.

Yes I use ComicLife but I was keen to explore my ‘comicify’ options soem more. I like Photosketcher (mac app) as I can standardize the conversion for many images and I use Picasa desktop and online FotoFlexor as I was not keen to go Photoshopping. But so far I can’t get what you achieve.

I’m not familiar with those apps. I know there are a bunch of ways to make photos into comics that don’t involve photoshop–i guess just keep searching and trying them out. Hopefully you’ll find one that works well for you.
I don’t know what kind of camera you have, but one key to better looking comics is a better camera. I used to use a point and shoot, which has a very small sensor. Those photos didn’t make such good quality comics because the original resolution wasn’t that high. But when I got a prosumer camera with a big sensor, I got much higher-res photos to work with, and consequently much better results with my comics.
