Aegis Chronicles Panel 1

First attempt at a 3 panel comic using a superhero story I wrote several years ago. Took about an hour from start to finish. I like the composition of the page. I feel that the action and dialogue unfold somewhat well. The art is total crap though. I’m still figuring out how to color and I phoned in my line work. I Just really wanted to get this scene out of my head. Also, while I adore my Note 4 for sketching, it is badly suited for work on this scale.

Tools of the Trade

Here are some of the tools I use when making art.

 

For larger artwork I use Strathmore Bristol Pads 11X14.

For art on-the-go I adore my Sketch Wallet.

My pencil of choice is a Pentel Graphgear 500 with .7mm blue or red lead. <— This and my Sketch Wallet are the two tools that go with me everywhere.

For inking, I’m digging Tombow Fudenosuke brush pens.

While I’ve tried lots of different writing software solutions I keep coming back to old reliable: Microsoft Word.
