- While I have always used Photoshop for the comic this time around I decided to ink the comic in Manga Studio 5. I can’t attest for any other part of the comic making process yet but inking was a dream. Photoshop’s great but I could never get my linework to not look like it was done during a low grade earthquake. In time I can see moving my whole process into Manga Studio but not just yet. I’ve still got a lot to learn.
In the process of teaching myself something new though, I’m reminded of the fact that no matter how fancy, tools don’t make you any better as an artist. My habits, both good and bad, follow me in every medium, whether it’s on a piece of scrap paper or a high-end Cintiq. I think it’s safe to say that’s a universal thing.
- So this current story has me thinking of the Young Earth vs Old Earth debate. I don’t really have a horse in that race. I believe Ye Olde Judeo-Christian God made everything but I find myself indifferent to how long it took Him to make it. Six literal days? I’m ok with that. Six metaphorical days? Sure, sounds good. Everything exploding into existence for no particular reason but mainly cause it was hot? Yea…I think I’ll pass on that one. Either way I don’t find my faith shifting one way or the other when I think on the matter. So, when it comes to the comic the Earth is…whatever age I need it to be for story purposes. I’m thinking your average ancient man didn’t worry too much about the subject so I’m not going to either. That might bite me in the butt at a later date, but it works for now.
