Hey, a new comic! This one is another collaboration that had Wes Black (Two of a Vine) writing and me drawing. It was also my first real crack at doing everything digitally. I experimented with Manga Studio a couple other times in stuff like Film Punks, but now I’m really trying to get the hang of it and learn how to make it a faster and more satisfying process.
Here’s a quick self-indulgent post, which pretty much describes every post on a personal blog, I guess. Some of you may recall the Bloodborne comic I posted back in April. Well, I was just flipping through a sketchbook to get to a clean piece and I came across the original thumbnail for the first page of that one, so I thought I’d share it.
I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing, but this definitely shows how slavish I can be to a thumbnail once I’ve decided what layout to go with. I did the comic itself in ink (Micron pen, probably) on regular printer paper before scanning it and coloring it in Photoshop. Here’s a little before and after thumb vs. final for those interested.
I have no idea what I did with the second page thumb, or if I even made one!
I played the crap out of From Software’s Bloodborne recently and really loved it. So here’s a short comic about it!
