Some thoughts on Scribbly Drawings
My comics have been very scribbly drawings of late, this is mostly due to not having enough time to spend making them look amazing and awesome (with colours, flashing lights, Shadows!).
But I’m also trying to get back the quality of the pen. Drawing in ink still looks infinitely better than drawing straight onto the tablet. It must be the little flaws in the lines, and the natural motion of the hand, that the tablet can’t imitate (YET I hope).
I wonder whether this means that colouring in with pencils or even paint will be cooler than the usual photo-shopping technique. I might dabble in a bit of the old colouring pencil action (I draw the line at crayons) to get some of the messiness back, and most of all, to make the messiness look good!
Watch this space! (not all day, your eyes will hurt and you’ll get nothing done)
