i should stick to my chinese brush. i tried to use the paint program on my computer to cover up the words that surrounded this picture. i lack control…maybe it’s an unsophisticated program as well….
so this is a picture from my journal. when i don’t get a chance to work on comics, i try to at least draw in my journal. being that my personal/romantic life is crazy right now, the words written in my journal were a bit…er, crazy, as well. i didn’t think you should have to suffer that close of a view of my psyche. so i covered the words with red using “paint.” it’s not pretty, but it protects my audience.
i write fiction for a reason. the crazy of my real life needs to be buffered into fiction.
take dusty. my dusty. right now we are trying to get back together & be a family…but there is a stalker girlfriend factor. only i could be trying to raise four kids and date my ex-husband while some girl he fooled around with & is having difficulty breaking up with leaves garbage bags full of stuffed animals on our front step. should i do a journal blog telling the public of my psychotic personal life? or should i incorporate it into a fictional telling of a post-apocalyptic dystopia?
it will make a good story.
it does not make good real life.
anyhoo. the first draft of page 29 is done. i just have to flood it with ink now. using my chinese brush, of course. i like the way it looks. i like that i feel like my art is improving.
maybe i should learn how to use my paint program….
or maybe i should remain a stubborn luddite.

here is a very CHEAP program that works really well: http://www.amazon.com/Smith-Micro-Software-Inc-MSEC40BX2/dp/B001NK18FM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428844897&sr=8-1&keywords=manga+studio+4+ex . There is a newer version, but it costs more.
thanks! i will check into that.
