I have a question. What do you use to draw your comics?

Photoshop CS3 and Manga Studio EX, primarily. I use Photoshop for pretty much everything except inking. I just like the line quality of Manga Studio better.

Wow. For the backgrounds too? Then you must use the pen tool extensively or have a good tablet. I thought that it was some sort of a vector. Anyways, that's cool. :)

I admit, I abuse the pen tool quite a bit for background work. I love the lineless, extremely clean look, and it works well for man-made buildings and furniture. But I'll hand paint things here and there, especially trees (in the later pages). :P

If that's the case, trying out adobe illustrator might be helpful. It's vector based, and the pen tool is easier to manipulate. (From my experience) but then again the money is always a problem for penniless students. :P

I actually don't like Illustrator very much, honestly. I like being able to create shapes with the pen tool, and then be able to immediately paint over it to give some texture.It just doesn't work in my workflow. X_X

It's time consuming but it's super worth it! I love drawing backgrounds, even if they take me a bazillion years to do.

Animation, aw yeah! :D

Trade secret! ;D
Nah but honestly, if a lot of people bug me about backgrounds, I might do a walkthrough or something, I don't know. I also do a few livestreams here and there, so keep your eyes peeled. :)

This has a very Disney look to the art. Not what I expected.

I've seen this comic on the popular overall page for a while, but this is my first time looking at it. I can see why it's there. It's very well done. I like how all the panels are complelely filled. A lot of comics don't take advantage of the entire panel, mine included. I'll definitely work on that.
