It's a Hell of a Ride

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Hi guise,

I started this blog upon discovering Sherry's blog. Sherry is my friend from uni years. It was back in 2008, I believe. I used to post random me-things with loads of personal photos.

Looking back, I've seen a lot of changes here in my blog. For one, the followers had definitely increased over the years and I'm honestly thankful because it means that I'm not really talking to myself here. I've seen some regular commenter here and don't ever think I haven't noticed you guys. I appreciate your support. It means the world to me. But with that being said, I also miss new commenter. I hardly see one these days. I guess people don't read blog that much any more. Or maybe I'm just falling behind with the popularity bandwagon.

I'm thinking about doing some renovation for my blog. Just tweaking a few here and there. Not too much change I hope. I think the biggest change I plan to do is to change my comic template. I haven't change my template for like forever. So I don't know how it's gonna affect you guise. To be honest, I've grown so attached to the old template. It's like an identity.

I remember my first comic here at Vespa Buruk. It's hand drawn and it was very different from my drawing style at that time.
Remember this one? I think this was my first official webcomic. Perintis style melukis sekarang. Made with magic marker.

This retained some of my original style. This particular draft was ruined by flood water. So sad..

After that, was the era of graphic tablet. When I first got my hand on the bamboo fun tablet, I admit, it took me quite a while to get a hang of it but it was an awesome experience.

My first artwork.. Back in 2011..

I experimented a lot back then. I was struggling with the lines and how much different it makes when you are drawing with a graphic tablet. I did black and white and also coloured comic..


The big ass red title..


Oh yes, it was glorious.. I even manage to do a short animation.. 


And finally in 2012, I fix my template to what I had been using for the last two years..


The earlier version still have title on it..

I had fun..But then again, through time, change is inevitable.

The old and the new..
Now do you see my problem? I don't know how to change the final render. Jadi kelabu asap..

I'm choosing between these two. truthfully, my favorite would be the old one since I've grown so used to it. Plus, the dimension and resolution work just fine with me. Alas, change is to be made..

Sorry for this nostalgic entry. I think it's just obligatory to do once for it had been almost 7 years after its inception. I'm lost for word now. Thanks for all the attention you've so kindly given to me over the years..

Adieu and auf weidersehein..

p/s: thinking of going to Paint Tool Sai but I think i would change my style greatly. Dunno.. Any advice?

  1. Ohoho.. entry di awal pagi? SAI.. once you got a hang of it.. gah, it's priceless. Aku personally ske tgk mangaka duk lukis guna SAI dlm cintiq few years back. So aku pon sibuk nk try.. mula2 Blergh.. interface dia plain and susah nk teka mcm mane tools dia functioning.. tapi kerajinan membuahkan hasil.. aku godek tutorial2 di deviantART smpai lebam. Aku guna sai curve mase guna mouse dlu, tracing scanned drawing. After ade tablet and bila figured ape function stabilizer dia tu... terus mata ku bersinar-sinar. Dunia berubah 180 degree. Ecewah... Yang pasti apa-apa pun used the one fits you best.. skrang aku tgh try Manga Studio lak... webtoon!!

  2. Waaaahhhh!! Nostalgik gitewww....

    Kalau aku plak, aku rasa template komik aku berubah setiap kali buat...hahahah
    Dr dulu lg aku tak berapa selesa guna tablet.
    Pernah satu era tu, aku pakai tablet, tp mcam takde uummpphhh!!!
    Aku rasa aku lg suka lukis atas kertas dgn guna pen/pensel...Klasik.
    Sbb tu lukisan aku dlm blog semuanya garisan kasar, sbb ianya mmg scan direct dr kertas...hahaha
    Tp mungkin in future aku akan try tablet balik...hehehe

    btw, aku rasa nak nmpak kemas, guna yg tmplate baru...
    tp kalau kau rasa selesa n dah jadi identiti, guna yg lama terus pon okey jgak...

    1. Aku kalau ingat tensen tengok line bergegar-gegar bila pakai tablet memang aku rasa xnak je lukis digital ni. Tapi ada pro and cons jugak. Boleh undo kalau silap. Hahaha.

      kita tengok la cane pasal template tu. I'm not so keen on change really..

  3. penat aku taip pepanjang sekali tak keluo.. hua hua hua... well
    dah tujuh tahun????
    hermmm.. aku blogging dah berapa lama plak??

    Rajin gak laa hang ubah ubah stail kan.. aku plak baru la ni nak try guna satu file untuk komik.. selalunya berfile file dalam satu entri... satu file agak mudah kot, cuma aku tak berapa selesa masa nak melukis. kena biasakan lah ...

    bak kate cEro pon, kalau hang nak kemas, guna template baru. Kalau nak menten templet lama pon, ok jer aku rasa... boleh jer... koh koh koh

    1. Ko tak baca bismillah sebelum post. Hahahaha..

      Anyhow, to be exact, dah nak 6 tahun sebab aku start blogging masa akhir 2008. Kalau ada anak dah nak masuk darjah satu. No wonder blog ni immature semacam. metal age of a child.

      Ubah style tu exciting tp macam risky pun ada. Biasanya aku tukar bukan sebab apa tapi untuk keselesaan. Selesa nak melukis.. Selesa nak baca komik. Banyak experiment dengan style ni sebab dulu ada orang condemn cakap aku tiru style kaoru la.. tiru style Keith la.. Still finding my own identity.

      Kalau ikut nak kemas memang aku go on with the new template. Tapi tu la. lingering attachment to the old one.

      Apa-apa pun, thanks for the support all this while. Thank you for noticing me senpai..

    pasal template kelabu asap tu, kalau just select samua space and spray paint warna putih, lepas tu save template... takbleh jugak ka? ni kes kalau guna function eraser dia akan jadi default kelabu asap ka?

    1. Sila scan dan share ye.. Baru adil. hahaha

      Masa belajar dulu buat animation ni sebab ada special presentation. Penat gila la buat. taknak dah.

      Template jadi kelabu asap sebab macam ada benda mask dia. dh uncheck dh box mask tapi still ada lagi. Even kalau tengok template baru pun still ada sikit grey masking. Tak tau dah nak buat macam mana. Sigh.. Dulu takde pun
