Well kinda.

It's something I posted a LONG time ago but only just now got around to finishing. It's kinda like an exercise as its the first thing I've ever created COMPLETELY digital.

I learned a lot, and I like the way it came out but my skills in Photoshop painting are FAR from professional. I'm gonna fix that, but for a first attempt I'm really proud.

It's a drawing of Batgirl, well the currant (until September) Batgirl. She looks like this:

So I turned her into a Shiva looking goddess, because I think she's awesome and as for female goddesses I think Shiva is probably the best. Definitely more iconic looking than Hera.

So last week I bought Manga Studio Debut 4! Yay! First I was all:

Then I was all:

'Cuz it's not letting me use my scanner to scan in my comics. I updated my scanner's drivers and idiot checked it in Photoshop (which I'm not a huge fan of for comic making) to make sure the scanner was working. Then I imported the .jpg into MS4 and it got all pixelated and shitty. Which was annoying but not a big deal because I needed to ink over it. It just fucking frustrated me that I couldn't do what I wanted (or figure out how to make panel borders for that matter) to the point where I'm kinda like Bill the Cat. ACK! THBTH!

Here are the two .jpgs. I left the original scan behind them so the difference isn't so BLATANT but tell me which one you think looks better than the other.

The Curious case of Drawing

So my pretend ego knows absolutely no bounds, fortunately reality smacks me in the mouth whenever I get uppity or try to get outta pocket. If you don't get either of those references you don't watch enough HBO documentaries about hookers.

But I digress, as I've previously stated I'm starting a web comic. I was gonna launch it last week but decided that I should get a few weeks (or months) worth of comics in the bag before I go ahead and make and long term promises. Just ask any of my ex's.

The two programs I'm trying to get better at in terms of my digital art production are Manga Studio Debut 4 (here) and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro (here). Here are two of the first drawings I've done in these programs as well as a painting I did for the comic.


This is a shitty iPhone camera picture in bad light. But I like it so BACK OFF!
This is the main character named Ed.
This is his twin Ebony.
