Manga Studio Test: Bianca

So about a two weeks ago, Tracy showed me a program that I had heard about, but never used called Manga Studio.  There was a huge sale on their 4EX software and, after hearing rave reviews from her regarding how much this program speeds up the inking process, I had to give it a go.  A good sale and a program that can speed production?  Worth a shot!

Anyway, I do have to say I agree with her.  Inking on here is a blast.  I'm still getting the hang of the pen brushes, tones, pencils and the overall layout of the work space, but I can see why people like it.  For Bianca, I used School Brush, and several grey and white tones.  For the background, I was trying to get a fiery/magic-y pattern going.  I still have a ways to go before I get used to using tones appropriately.  Right now I'm not sure when's a good time to use any of the graphicy tones, like dots and lines and such.  I'm sure that'll come with practice.

For now, enjoy some screen-toned comic-panel practice Bianca!

Don't Touch Him

 By Dana Corrigan

Seiron is a very gentle giant, but he is also very protective.  If an opponent hurts anyone he cares for, that is when you will see the beastial nature inside of him.  But unlike Rori, Seiron never flies into an uncontrolled rage.  If he does get feral and tear up an opponent, he will never willingly turn on his allies (then again, if one grabs his shoulder while he's fighting and he doesn't know who it is, or that it's an ally, then that's a different story.)

This sketch isn't from any scene in particular, though I could see something like this happening. It helps to have a big, powerful, well-dressed Gargoyle friend.

OC Sketch X-Change: Our Hearts are Together

I've mentioned before that I am part of an OC Art-Xchange group on DeviantART, and this was the gorgeous entry I was lucky enough to receive by the exceptionally talented Brianna Alexander!!  Here is a link to the original post on DeviantART.  As you can see here, the prompt is love between two characters (it didn't have to be romantic love, but most of us opted for it.  MMmmm)

I love the posing of both characters, and especially how schmoozing Cain is, all up on Larkspur.  He enjoys a little desert with his music!  Another aspect I really like about it is how great Brianna is with different character bodytypes.  This is prevalent not only here, with a big broad man and a thin, rail-ish girl, but also in her other work.

Thanks so much, Brianna!  I love it!

My entry was with Mayocat's characters, Juno and Maurice.
