I’m confused… Are you suggesting Dark Roast ISNT delicious?….
No, but now I’m confused.
Shhh… Here is a hint:
Welcome to the dark side! Love the dark coffee. Killer cell work too. Subtle ins and outs with the characters. I gotta work on that.
Thanks Jack! The panel transitions come mostly out of trail and error and necessity. I draw large, 16″ x 4.75″ but some how I still manage to run out of room! Charlie breaking the 3rd panel was simply because I liked how the pose came out and it seemed a shame to cut it off. It also gave me the leeway in panel 2 to not draw Charlie at all.
Ahh yes, less is more. That is drawing large, wow. I just switched to the Wacom world, it’s the best. I still sketch everything in pencil, scan it, and then go over it in photoshop. The Wacom is so streamlined and nice.
My drawing scale has more to do with the scale of my hand lettering (which I now do in Photoshop) and my line/pen thickness. I also hate hunching over a drawing table trying to draw things tiny. I find I even do that at this size sometimes…
I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun/Touch because I have two monitors and it allows me to quickly switch with just my fingers. (Tablet uses both stylus and finger.) I am way quicker inking on paper, usually about 90min per strip. I enjoy sketching with the Wacom, but hand inking is a pain with a lot of trial and error. I’m hoping to get a Cintiq 24″ HD this year.
