I wasn’t a fan of Manga Studio 4 because it only worked in black and white and the inks were aliased, and I like softer anti-aliased inks. Manga studio 5/Clip Studio Paint feels like an upgraded Paint Tool Sai, which is great.
Friend Joe taught me how to use the features I loved in Sai (the select brush) and Photoshop in Manga/Clip Studio Paint and I super super like it. I’m gonna draw the next chapter of Love Me Nice and Slipshine in it
Hi there! First of all, I got a copy of your book from the Kickstarter, and it is fantastic! Second, if I donate $10, could I get a doodle of Wario and Waluigi? (I've got this weird collection going of webcomickers drawing them XD)
no I still have commissions to finish so I’m not taking requests/commissions, sorry. I only am offering the $5 doodle because I’m impatient and don’t wanna wait for $5 to transfer to my paypal account
I own a Cintiq for my computer, I’m not looking for a digital drawing tablet to work on. When I say “tablet,” I mean like an Android or Ipad.
My mom asked me for a “big christmas present” idea. I told her a bike so I could exercise. She got mad and said “that’s not a good present” so if she’s gonna be pushy about being NICE to me, I figure I’d like a tablet I can work on, but also a tablet I can draw on.
I know there are different ways to draw on a tablet — Ipad with that fancy Wacom pen, Surface Pro, Galaxy Note tablets, etc. I will say I’m not fond of the interface of Ipads and Iphones, but I could adapt for the sake of productivity.
Mostly its the drawing aspect that I’m waffling on. I want something for doing quick sketches, not something with high latency where I gotta sit and draw for an hour delicately to make basic shapes.
Cintiq Companion is out of the question, btw, because of the price.
SO IF ANYONE HAS QUICK ADVICE that’d be great. I’d still like a bike but hey, if someone who loves me is determined to throw a tablet at me, I ain’t gonna fuss.
… though now people are gonna assume I designed characters to look like me, and not that I designed characters who looked how I wish I looked back when I didn’t have freedom to play with appearance. lol
I’ve taken the last few days off work, and today will be my day off too, to help my mom get a new kitten and get the little fuzzball settled in. Also thanksgivings. And I haven’t done an ounce of work.
I had a minor breakdown because of stress from overbooking my work schedule, plus emotions over cats dying and last minute divorce stuff, I just sort shut down for the last few days and decided not to do an ounce of work and just eat food an play with a kitten.
This break, which will continue to day, has been really good for me. Wager I’ll feel pretty eager to get back to work Saturday, though.
We’re doing another live hangout this weekend (guest unconfirmed), and the talking point for the group will be MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT SEX.
We’ll be sharing our own misconceptions, be they personal or common misconceptions prevalent in pornographic media, and if you want to send experiences of your own (personal or witnessed in media), feel free! We’ll still answer general questions, too.
having thought about it, I’m pretty darn sure that anon is the one who sends me the anonymous harassment about Kickstarter, because when I asked for details from that person I never got any via kickstarter messaging; everyone else who sent inquiries was cool and polite. So they must have just not been a backer, but was able to keep up with my shipping delays because I’m really open and transparent about that.
so I guess some buttface has just been slinging shit at my wall for months and this is the first time it stuck.
Hi, I noticed you use ComicCMS for Love Me Nice and was wondering how it's working out for you? Most of the info I can find on it is outdated. Thanks :)
Yeah, it’s not supported or updated anymore. But I really enjoy the simplicity of it, especially building the comic’s site and code from scratch instead of an annoying and unnecessarily bloated Wordpress plugin/theme. Though if you don’t know code and css and stuff it might be a pain in the ass, being so bare bones.
