I’m going to document, in this blog post, how I’ve integrated Manga Studio in to my current entirely traditional drawing process. What do I mean by that? Essentially I pencil and ink by hand on paper using pencils and brush and ink, but use Manga Studio to do a LOT of the donkey work normally associated with creating a comic book.
If you read this blog or follow me on twitter, you’ll probably have a couple of conflicting opinions about me: I’m a raging egomaniac and perversely hypercritical of my own work.
I’ve ordered a new drawing table. It’s pretty basic (and here it is on Amazon) I’ve never liked drawing tables with parallel rulers on them (though I concede the last time I had to deal with one was in the late 80s, so who knows now?) but this is a plain, boringly functional table which tilts at and angle, and should be small enough to fit in to my studio. Right now I’ve drawing on my large computer desk (that I’d hoped would replace my old drawing table and my rubbish old computer desk, it was brilliant idea that …er… didn’t work out.)
Cheerio. 2014, you were looked upon with some serious optimism, a chance to fix all the things that hadn’t quite gone to plan in 2013 but within a very short time (the first week, in fact) you quickly became hell on earth. Anyways, as is the norm here’s my comic book year in review…
