Heyo hows it going? ^^ Been forever since we talked at all. You by chance still into Sonic stuff? Because I'm a mod of a brand new Sonic RP Group called Emerald-Rebellion if you're interested in checking it out. You can do quite a bit of stuff in it and the best part is that God mods and re-colors are not allowed XD 

:iconemerald-rebellion: this is the group if you wanna see. I know I enjoyed it so far ^^ Its still a new group, and its already starting to get popular o: 

So besides working on your Na-Rune-Tok comic, what's you been up to? :3

Thanks for thinking of me on this one! Unfortunately things are really hectic right now, so I couldn't even think about looking into it until next month. I have fallen out of the Sonic fandom quite a bit, but I'll have a peek when I get the chance. :)

Other than Na-Rune-Tok, I've been doing blog posts on Bobble Kitty, and right now I'm in a play and this weekend, I'll be volunteering at a Renaissance Fair. Aaaand of course I managed to get sick this week on top of everything. So lots of crazy stuff! What you been up to? :)

On this one? Made it sound like I never think of you like EVER! D: Or maybe I'm misunderstanding lol We never talk anymore so its kinda sad for me ;-; Well we do get to say a little thing now and then. Almost 10 years now since I've met you...wow D: I never forgot how we met either 8D You were nipping at my heels for sharing a picture that isnt my work cx hehehehe 

You sure got a load on your hands, try not to overdo yourself o_O Renaissance fair....damnit I want to go XD You ish lucky. Sorry you got sick though. I'm sick myself...still sick to be exact....I am sleep deprived thanks to the nose ~~ plus the restless leg syndrome decided to come back...thought that is gone forever since I quit the antidepressants.....so most of the time fighting the illnesses and taking care of things in the group. Its a lot of hustle and bustle in there...especially in the skype...sure got popular in there. We did get a couple of weeds that needed to be uprooted if you know what I'm saying...feeeeh godmodders...what a pain -.- They get lots of ships going around in there including crack ships....my character, Jex is one of the victims of a crack pairing lol meeps

Hi, I have a question to ask you. Have you had to draw a background crowd?

Im working on some now and not sure how to do it with out taking away from the main characters.

Let me kno if you have some helpful tips.

There's a number of ways to do it, depending on the level of stylization your image will allow.

One method is to straight up silhouette the crowd, making the characters really stand out against them. (Top right panel.) Super fast, too.
Na-Rune-Tok - Page 028 - Jazz Hands by resuki

You can also use a method where everyone who is not a main character in the image is less detailed, either without facial features, or turned away from the viewer. This example by Manamaraya comes to mind:
Don't Get Lost by Manamaraya

You can see the above artist has also used color to draw the eye to the main character, giving the others a general wash. The people in the far back are also nearly silhouettes themselves.

And a final method I can think of, but can't find a good visual reference for, is to use line variation to make your main characters stand out. Ink their outer lines thicker than the rest of the crowd around them (only the outer lines). That will really make them pop. And/or don't ink the lines of the people around them all the way to touching their lines, leaving a white 'halo' around the main characters. It will be fairly subtle, but will make them pop off the page more.

Hope that helps. :)

Thank you all the different ways of did help. :) I ended l using were the main character has a little room around here and the ppl walking around her are slitly darker then then the main character. Showing her important.

And the other reason why this all came up was my editor told me that I was putting too much details into the non important characters.

Thanks for the help and feed back

Have a good day

Definitely! I hope you guys did well at the show - as for us, it was our first time with our own table at one of these conventions (I've shared a table with a bunch of other folks before, but never had my own), so it was a pretty crazy experience overall. A good experience, but a crazy one. :D
