This page helped me learn Manga Studio; it’s the only TAZ page where all the inks are completely digital. This page, as a result of being a guinea pig, is less than thrilling.
Sorry for the wait. Hopefully, the next one will be faster.
Eh. It’s not bad at all, and after the whole OMGF of the shop, the slightly cleaner, understated style does a lot for this page.
It looks real good; I can’t make out any difference from your usual routine.
I liked that Spike showed her unmarked face. She’s very pretty. For some reason what I’m guessing is First Nations blood also is a lot more evident.
Patti has First Nations ancestry? I missed this, point me to a previous page, please?
The clothes, hair style and the nose. She doesn’t have the complexion or facial structure (ex- no predominant cheekbones) to look like most First Nation people I’ve met. I can’t help but think she’s actually something more like Italian and possibly related to Regan, but who knows? She’s quite pretty either way. :)
I am pretty sure she is Nile, considering the context. Besides, one needn’t “look First Nations” to be so. Nor does one always “look Jewish.” Or have mocha-coloured skin to be mulatto.
Keep in mind that the vast variations of genetics should be given greater consideration than social pre/misconceptions. It will keep us out of a fair amount of avoidable trouble.
I myself do not specifically look like any of my cultural/genetic roots.
Glad you’re using Manga Studio! It’s a terrific program!
I love panels 1 and 2. We get to see Patti have a moment to just take a moment to herself and react to what happened now that she’s not being buffeted by anyone else’s input.
so basically she had a fangirl moment <3 too cute
man i love manga studio. once you get the hang of it it really streamlines comic making. especially perspective and the like.
i love her teehee face.~
manga studio is great, but if i’m gonna ink digitally it’s sai or bust
It all still looks like Spike inks, though. This is a good thing.
So, I like Hypatia before this. That second panel made me fall in love with her. I’d seriously quit walking and just stare if I saw her on the street with that expression on her face. Amazing work, Spike.
I honestly love the way this turned out and can see a major improvement. Especially on panel 2.
But, you’re the artist. If you don’t like the results, then BACK TO INKING TRADITIONALLY :D
I quite like the new inking style, I’d love to see a stream of you doing a page in Mange Studio to compare it to the previous process.
It is a little more flat, a little less vivid this way… makes me think Disney. I’m sure you’ll find a balance, though.
Kind of afraid to find out what’s making Patti laugh…
That’s not a laugh, she’s trying to hide an expression of sublime glee.
seemed to me like a “teehee”.
I would love to have her shirt! I also now want to own a copy shop.
This just hit me: Thoth has a No Parking sign. Have we actually seen a car in Templar before?
I know Pippi’s date was driving a car a couple chapters back. Otherwise, I don’t remember any others. Good point.
So he was, good catch; spotted a couple hanging around the margins at the beginning of this chapter too, so they’re definitely around, just kind of scarce in the Templarverse. Pedestrian oriented city planning: good for the environment, good for panel layouts.
So… this definitely isn’t the M-W-F comic that’s advertized, is it? I’m seeing updates once a week at best.
I’m loving Hypatia. I know she hates that birthmark, but she is SO cute.
I had a friend (we are no longer so close) who insisted that female beauty be perfect. I could not convince him that what made a woman beautiful was not her perfection but her imperfection. We had a huge ‘discussion’ about it, after which I never felt the same about him.
Sad that so many are like him.
Hypatia is beautiful.
….Does Hypatia hate her birthmark, though? There’s no evidence in the comic so far either way, I think.
