We told you we had some pages backlogged and ready for ya. Cause we love you.
So, sick of seeing Rip’s face plastered onto every available surface yet? I know I am.
So, this maybe might be one of the last comics done in the old style of:
-Pencil sketch it out on trash paper.
-Transfer refined pencils onto illustration board.
-Darken/ink pencil work.
-Scan in to desktop.
-Color via an old copy of Corel Paint.
The next two pages at least are part of the reason why the recent hiatus took so long. That’s because I gave in to modern times and invested in a tablet. I was damned if I was going to be trapped in the studio for all serious arting bizness. So after research and comparisons and taking a look at what other, better artists were saying about portable tech, I finally acquired a Surface Pro and started practicing on it. A few of the early attempts at 100% digital drawing can be found in the photos of the Voodoo Walrus Facebook page.
I’ll go into more detail next update, but the upcoming page was a huge ordeal to get through with the pure digital creation process. Thankfully it feels like things are going a lot quicker with the one that’s currently being worked on, so we’ll see how things go.
