I know, it's been forever.

I haven't gotten around to drawing much lately. But I am about to make it up to you with something new and not really exciting.

Have you ever wondered what goes into making one of my comics? Well, now you can know because I recorded a video of the whole mind-numbingly dull process! (I edited out me sketching in the panels because it was just too boring.)

I apologize in advance for 1) filming at bad angles, 2) not filming close enough to the paper, 3) cutting out huge chunks of the process, and 4) the song getting stuck in your head. Oops.

Here's the finished product:


I have always wanted to be a ballerina.
While I was looking up references pictures I found out that I actually have the right body type for it (minus being tall). Go figure! My hyperextended knees are good for something after all.
I have more sketches but they didn't scan right so I'll put them up tomorrow.
Also: sketching on tracing paper is fantastic. I need to do it more often.

Educate Yourself

I'm toying with some new styles and a new medium, brush and ink. This is more graphic-novel-y than I usually make my comics, but it's way more fun to draw. Took FOREVER. The brush and ink is incredibly hard to control, but so, so worth it!
