Here's this week's page, with my apologies for the missed week.
My Grandfather went to be with The Lord on April 14th, and I had to be out of state to attend the reception and funeral.
I can't say I was very choked up about the whole thing, as I never knew him that well, but the funeral itself took me by surprise and there were moments where I cried. He was a gentleman and a dedicated christian, and his influence on my life will stick with
me until The Lord calls me home too (or returns before then! That would be tremendous!).
But enough about me, let's talk about the comic a bit!
I'm always a little excited when I can come up with any excuse to not draw backgrounds. It's sort of a guilty pleasure of mine, and I'm sure you can see I've done that with this page.
Of course, that's just good practice. Never do any more work than you have to!
The other thing I want to bring up is the very tiny special effect on the second panel.
I think my one most abused tool in Manga Studio is the air-brush tool. I use it for all my shading and every single effect otherwise, but I think this may be the first page I've ever considered myself competent with it. I've recently picked up a new method of shading, which I think is helping me a lot more than I thought it would!
I really won't get into details, since I think maybe one to two percent of my audience would be able to understand it, but just know I'm feeling rather "chuffed" about it.
