Thumb-nailing- the 'ironing' of comic art.


Sorry about the lack of posts, I suddenly became very, very busy (which is a good thing). So, yeah- I hate thumb-nailing, I don't know why- it's irrational. I suppose it's just because it's entirely necessary, but is nothing like the meat of the sandwich. It's more like the bread of the sandwich- which, let's face it, is the shittiest part of any sandwich. Unless it's a decent bap, or a fresh & crusty baguette. Still... at least it's not the 'reduced-fat spread'.

I can't really talk too much about what I'm up to- it will magically jinx it. You can laugh, but I've been here before and experience tells me how wrong you are. I will update, tease and pimp come the time.

Busy , busy...

Practicing drawing digitally into manga studio. I'm finding it cuts time down on the drawing by a noticeable degree. This is a quick loose sketch and it really didn't take long at all (though I wasn't really looking at the time at all).

I like how you can just scribble away then clean up if need be after, with no tears, messes or smudges to obscure what you've done. I can see it would be quite fast to tighten this up a bit into a more worked version for inking.
