Photo Webcomic Tutorial 01 by Shin-Goji Photo Webcomic Tutorial 01 by Shin-Goji
The first in a series of tutorials in which I share some of my secrets. These are the same techniques I use in my webcomic, TWISTED KAIJU THEATER. But don't think these are only useable for photo webcomics. The techniques I'll share will include how to do proper word balloons and text, layout, wild takes and more.

I did some stop motion stuff a while back on my webcam (though I have since deleted them, I am a idiot).

so I guess you have two digital cameras since you are talking pictures of talking pictures?...

Just one random question... do any of your "models" cause problems when you are trying to take pictures of them, such as reflection, size, pose, etc.

I'll definitely address that in the next tutorial. Silver and white figures can get lost in the background, and greenscreens aren't all that they're cracked up to be. Larger monsters still cast dark shadows even with this lighting technique. Heavily detailed monsters, like the Godzilla you see on the bottom shelf, require a lot of detailed erasing. More to come soon.

I just got my first digital camera a few weeks ago (A 5mp Polaroid), I also got a 5 dollar tripod off of ebay (it's about 6 inches high), I use it with the timer on the camera to do pose shots (for when I'm working on a commission or something). I have very shakey hands normally, and find that even while *holding* the camera with the tripod attached, I take steadier pics, but definitely with the timer you get a good steady shot. Just a suggestion for other amateurs like myself :)

I use an archery method myself. If I can't brace my forearms on or against something, I'll exhale slowly, pause at the last breath, take the shot, then breathe normally.
