O Comics, Comics, wherefore art thou Webcomics?

New Noddegamra Webcomic Comic StyleWhat’s this? No webcomic this week? Well, I feel I should explain the situation.

Whilst there has been no comic from me this week, it’s not because I’m lazy or have given up. Oh no, I love drawing little cartoons! The reason there hasn’t been anything from me lately is because I’ve been working on developing my own style.

For those that know me personally, you already know of how I like to experiment in all manner of different styles, I never really stick to one. The problem is with webcomics (or any comic really) is that the artist needs to stick to a personal style so it becomes recognisable. Just check out the fantastic work of Mike for an example of what I mean. Even if he left out his signature strip, I would be able to tell it’s him. Also, check out the rut as another good example.

I’m not saying my style is going to be unique, just that I am going to try and settle on one in particular. I’m also going to sign the graphics with my initials rather than as “Noddegamra”. Or I may even sign it as “Matt”, I haven’t decided yet (any suggestions?). Next week I will be on holiday with my girlfriend, so you may just have to wait one more week before I finish the next comic strip.

Oh! And just one more thing! The picture in this post is similar to my finalised style, although the finished version will look better as I will be using my graphics tablet (or even scanned drawings) instead of (once again) using my mouse out of laziness/convenience! :)

  1. I love graphics tablets. I have a Wacom Intuos3! Mmmmm.

    What do all you initials stand for? I think there is already someone who signs stuff Matt (I think it’s Matt Groening?!?) I’d go for ‘Nodde’, short, sweet and interesting enough to want to know what it means!

    PS, thanks to you, I have reverted back to WordPress… Check it out!

  2. I have a very, very long name.. “To pronounce it I’d have to cut out your tongue”. lol :P

  3. The “J” stands for “Jabba”.

  4. The “W” stands for “Wookie”. ?

  5. “W J” = “Wang Jockey”

  6. Nah, I’m sure it’s Matt ‘Wicked Jazz Funkster’ Arnold…..

    Although I could be wrong, a mostly am.
