For the 150th episode I break format and answer an email rather than come in with a formulated essay on comic-making. But I think there’s an essay in there somewhere as I give a report on what tools I use to make comics as of September 2013. Links mentioned: Manga Studio Ray Frenden’s Manga Studio […]

Today I took on Lean Into Art Quest #7: What’s the difference Zero and 60? In which I learned a bit about time management and trusting myself on the page. I took a page of art from The Front: Petty Dreadful that I inked in Manga Studio EX 4 and re-inked it with the Pentel Pocket Brush […]

Now that The Front: Petty Dreadful is underway with updates, I plan on blogging the process as I go. I talked about the whys in a recent Lean Into Art podcast. So how do I get from story idea to final comic page? It all starts with a combination of notebooks and Evernote. I jot […]

So after inking my first page of The Front: Petty Dreadful, I was dismayed. As happy as I was to be working on The Front again, it took far longer to pencil, ink, and flat the first page than I anticipated. There are many reasons for this (and I plan on talking about on the […]

So after seeing Audra Furuichi draw in Manga Studio at the AADL Comic Artists Forum, then watching a demo by Stephen McCranie on Comics Are Great! 46, I just had to set aside some time to play with this Manga Studio thing everyone in comics seems to be talking about. I kept hearing about how […]
