Okay, so I'm working on some art projects again, which feels good after a long personal hiatus of no drawing ("No drawing" meaning, maybe a pic a month...). So I'm not dead. I'm in fact, practicing manga techniques.

You may know that manga is colored using dotted tones. That's because manga is usually printed cheaply, with paper and printers that don't produce grey, only black and white. So came the technique of dotted tones, which the eye reads as grey. Who knew?

Jak will demonstrate. )

Couple things I learned:
         Resize resize resize!
         Save a copy of the linework.
         Image mode to Grayscale, then to Bitmap. Copy and paste to linework original.
         Don't overshade. Less is more, lest it look like mud.
         Save a copy of the linework.
         (I lost my linework a couple times, which was really dumb of me and made me sad because for once I did really nice, clean linework. And now it's gone. *sigh*)

PS. Ame and I need to get together!

blah.

Updating? That's so passé.

Just so everyone's on the up-and-up I'm returning on August 1st.
