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…
I pencilled this drawing an age ago, finally got around to inking then colouring. My first pass at colouring was done on procreate on the ipad, but I have some terrible habitual problems with procreate – an over reliance on the same brush tools being the main one, which fools me into thinking I’ve done something really nice, but it does tend to give everything the same texture. I have the same problems in Manga Studio, but I’m more willing to forgive myself (probably because the resolution is so much higher).
This year I hit the books with a vengence, reading, reading and reading. Really enjoyed all the books (ok, I haven’t read all of them, still a few left for this year!) in Iain M Banks culture series most of all.
I’m on the hunt for a drawing table. I’ve owned two drawing tables in my 20plus years of owning the things, so I’m pretty rusty on what’s what on these things.
Hey you. It’s my birthday.
