A Few Raves for Drawing
I just want to share a few awesome sources and materials for drawing. First of all, a book by Jason Brubaker , Unnatural Talent, is full of advice on making comics, self-publishing and being creative. He’s the author of the amazing graphic novels ReMIND I and II. As a light penciler, I learned a great tip on making my line work look like ink via PhotoShop, which saves me having to trash a nice pencil sketch with ink. Also, yesterday, I got a Huion light pad which helps me in redrawing. I have a tendency to throw a sketch right on top of draft text, so I need to redraw the work to get a clean image. This device is so much nicer than the old hand-made wooden box I used in my high school animation class, or the window I used as an undergrad, even the light table in my grad school studio and the one that used to double as a coffee table when I first started teaching. Now I just need to smudge up the final rendering so it looks like I drew it.
