  D00R : TG 034
Posted on March 21st, 2010, 6:52 pm by blix

Back to TG. ^^ Sorry I was sick last week.

So I have to be honest and I say this because I don't know what to do about it - I love TG, but I hate coloring it. I pour buckets of time into the coloring ultimately for a product that I don't think looks good.

I don't know what the solution is. I liked the coloring of the LotR comic better.

Maybe I should attempt more pencil rendering, less color rendering.

I'm not asking for suggestions since it would be kind of impossible to offer any, I'm just frustrated and prissing about it. It feels like I spend all this time on the thing that matters least to the story. If I did this differently, I could maybe update two or three times a week.

But I also feel like people give this comic a chance because they see that it's colored. And then perhaps they find it in their hearts to like the story.


TWC: a rough of "Evening", some Arwen fanart. ^^ I already did "Morning", of Galadriel.

God, what are you talking about?
Yes, the color is so amazing and I would die for the kind of skills you have at it, but I personally fell in love with the story first! I mean, SERIOUSLY! The whole toilet/genie/dog thing was like the most creative thing I've ever seen!!

I don't like just the colors, I love the story :D It's really original, unlike the constant generics I run into on the site :P

A little leprechaun man, and S&M DEFIANTLY <3

Skittlez looks awesome on this page. Almost as awesome as Anya's imagination. And pishaw. I could stare at TG endlessly regardless of whether or not it was colored. Off to try the email subscriptions.

Personally, I like comics better in b/w, but you do an amazing job with coloring you make me like it anyway.
Skittlez looks this really odd but awesome mix of silly yet elegantly beautiful. <3

I really do like the story. But your coloring and artwork puts me in a state of awe. Seriously.

Maybe you could try some practice coloring like you did with the LoTR comic and see which is easier?

Also, LOVE Anya's imagination there. XD

To Jazeki:

The mailing list isn't anything particularly special - it's just for people who want the weekly update in their email instead of somewhere else.

Toilet Genie is definately among the more creative comics to be found upon the web - the writing, page layout, art, and characterization all get high marks as far as I'm concerned. :) The LOTR comic had a nice sepia tone to it, btw. Now for the impossible suggestions >:D - you could: a) find a colorist (fan, artist friend, fellow comicker, slave monkey, etc) b) find a more efficent coloring method/program c) switch to black-and-white with selective bits of color added (some artists use this to great effect) d) clone yourself. e) other. :D But, no matter what, your comic's worth the wait - as are all the good comics. Have a nice day, and good luck. :)

Oh I love this comic.
It just seems to come out of nowhere with a banana and make something wonderful out of it.

lol skittles is just setting herself up XD i 'unno what you're talkin bout! ur coloring is amazing!

Posted by Hazardbaby (Guest) on March 22nd, 2010, 12:56 pm!
I love the coloring style. But... not so big a fan of the new eyes/lashes you've been drawing. Either way, I think that A) Your coloring is fine, and B) I read my comics based on story, not artistic prowess, and I really hope that people aren't shallow enough to select their comics based on appearance.

Keep on doing what you do! I love where Skittlez's conversation is going, lol!! Poor puggie girl.

As a fairly new reader I have to say that the stunning coloring is what captured my attention and brought me here from the banner/ad link, but I stayed for the story :3 (and the hot genie ^^ but anyways)

Don't be silly. Your coloring looks fantastic. It's my favorite part of reading TG as opposed to other webcomics.It works really well with your art, too.

OMG Boyfriend Master XDDD

Hmm... Posted by Beruthiel (Guest) on March 25th, 2010, 9:54 pm!
Why not try drawing one chapter in black and white (or selective colouring like someone suggested above)?

That way you could experiment to see whether the comic improved in your eyes, and you would give yourself a bit of a break from colouring, and your fans (me included!) wouldn't freak out so much about experimentation if it came in chapter-size chunks.

I *do* love your colouring, particularly in some of the earlier TG pages, but I must admit the textures are what really make TG appealing to my eyes (pg 1 is a good example). I'm assuming this is what you mean by increased pencil rendering? If so, I would love to see you experiment! In the end, it's your project and you ought to enjoy creating it.

Awesomeness!!! Posted by Arleigh (Guest) on March 29th, 2010, 9:13 pm!
I've been comic searching for a long,LONG time but I think this is the best comic I've read yet!!!! The coloring is exquisite but the story its self is fantastic!!!:] I like it and I think you should continue how you see fit, if you want to continue coloring all of it then you should and if you want to try some of the above suggestions then you should. You are the writer!!!:}
