Like many artist/creators, I often look back at my old work and scoff at my choices and my skill level. I tend to scoff 'less' at are stories with animals and kids (haha). I did a lot more gag/humourous stories earlier on, and now I have some more serious stories folded into the mix. You get older, you get more jaded?
Lava and Hideout. Lava was drafted digitally, then inked with brush pen. Hideout was drafted digitally, then "inked" with pencil. The rough effect of pencil is interesting post-scanning, and hopefully something I can try again in the future.
Deadline and Tied. Both of these were drafted digitally. Deadline was inked with a fineliner (or nib? I forget). Tied was inked with a brush, then a watercolour wash was applied on top. I much prefer doing washes instead of toning digitally.
Tie the Knot and It's Getting Hot in Here. Both of these were drafted and inked digitally, in FireAlpaca! My favourite note here is "Where's Ogata" and then I included Ogata on the magazine in the background.
Reframe and Here We Are/HWA. Reframe was drafted and inked in FireAlpaca. HWA started in FireAlpaca, but I transferred the pages over to Clip Studio Paint after a while, since I wanted some more sophisticated/comic-specific functions. The inking experience in either program is very similiar (since I just use the pen tool and go at it).
I'm finding solace in being an unknown cave dwelling obselete artist! I'm having fun screaming into the void, especially since the internet is so mean to artists these days.
Today's music post: Circus by Ma-te Lin. This video is both cute and sad because of animals!!!!!!!!!
