I have a few characters I need to draw...keep putting it off. Maybe I'll find some time this weekend.
This weekend, if I can finally finish my taxes, I have a new FIN cartoon penciled, and need to ink and color it.
I like Bristol board better than paper because it is easier to control the ink... not so much bleediness. But lately, I'm still hip deep in my love affair with my Cintiq. If I had that thing fifteen years ago I woulda set the world ablaze. It really is that good, and well worth the price.
PS- I also think this is a great idea Matt.
These high-quality papers are great, but sometimes I feel a bit a pressure not to waste them. Often I prefer to go crazy in a cheap little Wal-mart sketchbook....I can transfer anything that makes the grade w/my trusty lightbox. You guys feel me?
I'm using Micron and Microperm myself for lining and lettering, but going with dip pens for more organic inking.
...I can't find a good pointed sable brush to save my butt though, and I've scanned the tons of brushes they have at the local art stores for the type right now I'm working with a synthetic brush with a cushioned grip, really comfortable if working with it for a long time, but it doesn't really do the work I'd like it to.
and I work with several types of paper, I'm saving the Bristol for the stuff I want to publish, if that makes sense (and a few dollars as well I hope)
<matt, I'd love to but I almost don't do movies anymore (I tend to wait till they're on DVD and rent or buy them)
Here's a thought for discussion; Has anyone done Shakespeare in comic book/graphic novel format before?
I only ask because I just had a titilating idea for one based upon A Midsummer's Night's Dream....

I'll have to check that out....but the thing that hit me was doing Midsummer gangster style; with oberon as the godfather type and robin as a wiseguy....the dialog would just be hilarious...
the wiki page, there is no Shakespeare yet.
