A little sketch that I couldn’t help but finish. I call him Skullkid.
This weekend I did a stupid and terrible thing. For a full explanation, all you have to do is search for “gunnerkrigg” right here on Tumblr to see that I essentially threw away 8 years or so of work by being an idiot on Twitter. It’s better to leave the description of events to external sources,…
I can’t pretend to know the whole story, this is the first I’m hearing of it, but I will say this:
You went 8 years without fucking up and saying something stupid on the internet, I think that’s a world record. Take the hit, apologize as many times as it takes, and let people take the time to realize you’re not an asshole. Your fans still love you and your work, don’t let one misstep ruin things for your readers and yourself.
There has been a lot of interest in those pantheon guys recently! I’m in the middle of several other projects and it’s not likely this story’s going to find itself made into a proper book any time soon, but I wrote out a few general introductions to these characters.
This story’s been following me around in one form or another since I was about 15, and while it’s extremely close and dear to me, I’m pretty certain that it also retains its heart of a kid’s childish fantasy of flawed gods and celestial war. Is that positive or negative? Don’t answer that question.
Here’s our protagonist:
I’ve been following Yuko’s work for about 10 years and have only seen little bits and pieces of the pantheon. Love seeing real info on stories that have mostly been alluded to.
My favorite nut artisans
It really said “Q’s Nuts”, but I though they were missing out on a golden opportunity.
My super late, non entry for Goblin Week.
Line work done in Manga Studio, and the rest in Photoshop. I’ve always heard people say that inking was so much better in Manga Studio, but was never really sure what they meant. But after trying it, I 100% agree. Not sure what specifically is different, but so far, I really like it.
So, you put your Windows computer to sleep for the night. You come back the next day all eager to wake it up and put it right to work on that thing you’ve been working on and ….
Oh no - you’ve seemed to have lost all pressure sensitivity and high resolution pen tracking! Well, you figure,…
I know there’s a lot more I could have covered but with tumblr’s image limit and my own need to get back on personal projects and packing my room up, I stuck to the ABCs of understanding artists and not being a total douche.
Hope this helps a little.
