I believe you're mistaken.From the Comics Forum Rules And Guidelines:
I used to do comics back in 2008. I used Paint for them. It's hard to post comics on here since you can't post every time you have a new comic up and you have to rely on others to make posts to keep it alive.
Anyways. For the comic I'm currently doing, I do a couple rough drafts with characters, environments, dialogue and panel layout on a half piece of paper. Once I'm happy with it, I take a full piece of paper and outline all the frames and trace them in where I want them, then trace rough skeletons of the characters and objects, flesh them out, then erase and redraw everything to clean up. I then scan it, write the dialogue separately and splice it in, increase light and and contrast, edit out unwanted specks, add a disclaimer, and upload it. (Everything outside of the computer is done with a pencil and an eraser.)As far as story, I generally try to have an overarching continuity for the entire series, have separate arcs for each chapter, and sub-stories within the individual pages. It's never worked the way I wanted it to though, so mostly I just make it up as I go.
Do not double-post if you have no new material. Double posting serves no purpose but bumping the topic and counts as spam. However, you may double post if you are announcing a major update such as a new comic, or a significant preview. This is the only exception!

you who tempt the fates
you have journeyed oh so far
to apparitions in the haze
rise up, you earth bound demons
rise up before me now and fight
your time has finally come

Looking for a Bionicle Beanie. Black one with the symbol on it. The one I had since childhood was lost at sea (no joke). Please let me know if you have one. Will purchase/trade.

I've used Paintbrush before. Great program.
For comics, I use a program called Paintbrush (Since I use my Macbook), to normally hold my spritesheets/spritekits/the likes. Although for comics I actually use gimp. To quote someone who posted earlier, "with my mad
photoshoopGimp skillz". If the comics involve hand drawn things then I normally hold them in gimp and use that as sprite sheets like my comical retreat comics. It really depends on the style I'm working with. But for the graphics and actual comics, I use gimp... Like a boss (I have photoshop but I suck at it.)~Soran
Yeah, I make custom Chimoru poses as they're needed.I've discovered that if you only have one character talking in each frame, it's a lot less cluttered, and it's easier to understand the order in which they're talking.--
A variety of sprite kits, with MSPaint. For spritesheets, I don't bother unless there's a premade one I can just recolor. I instead make poses as I go along, as I need them, and record any pose I make in the spritesheet for re-use. I simply copy paste into the panel, edit in some tweaks such as a head partially buried in the ground, effects, etc, then add text on top. (The only downside to this is the text occasionally requires tilting of your screen to read when it gets inside the characters.)
