Huzzah! Sunlight!

Time to get some stuff done!

Huzzah! Stuff Done!

Scripts written through March 1st! Squash and Stretch get to work! Ramses kicks some ass! Tiffany makes snarky comments!

I do love my work. :)

Now ... what to do next? Hmm.

-The Gneech
Disk three of Comic Party not so hot, alas ... it mostly consists of Kazuki making an ass of himself and then moping about it for the next two episodes. Fortunately, it picks up again before the end.

So about those numbers...Collapse )

And now ... lunch.

I've Got the Blues -- and I Like It!

So for a while, I've been using non-repro blue pencils to do the pencils for Suburban Jungle, but I was less-than-satisfied with them. For one thing, they're too soft -- I draw a single line and blorp, the lead is flat. For another thing, they're too light! By the time I'm ready to go back and ink, I've forgotten where I laid the lines down, and it's all this barely-discernible cyan mass.

I've noticed over time that whenever I see blue-pencil work by other artists, it's darker than mine -- as in, you can actually see the picture! Finally after FC, I decided to check out this phenomenon, and looking around at a few artist discussions, I found somebody making the offhand comment, "I pencil with a Col-Erase Light Blue. I can't stand non-repro blue, and avoid them if I can."


I started asking around, and sure enough, it's one of those, "Duh, everybody knows this, how is it that you don't?" kind of things that I seem to encounter with such annoying regularity.

So over the weekend, I started doing my pencils with a Col-Erase Light Blue that I just happened to have around the house, and so far, I'm lovin' it. It keeps a nice, sharp point; it makes a distinct, vivid line; and it vanishes just as well as the non-repro when I do my scanner-tweak.

*slaps forehead*

Honestly, I sometimes feel like the rest of the world has to be watching me stumble around in the dark, snickering. One of these days, I am going to weed out all the ways I shoot myself in the foot, and my art's finally gonna be great!
