joedcomp asked: Reyy, Any chance you are watching the new "Jojo's Bizarre Adventure"?
I have NOT yet, but I hear it’s super awesome. I should get on that. Okay, time to get into some new anime. (I haven’t been able to get fully into Jojo yet, so it’s still “new” to me— I’ve been wanting to get into it, too. I hear it’s way up my alley. The new series seems like the perfect entry point)
sammanarr asked: hey reyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, i just got around to reading double z and noticed ceasar singing to himself. that was a flight of the concords song, right?
One of my favorite Flight of the Conchords songs, too! That they never put on any album or anything! Dangit!
Anonymous asked: Hi Reyyy, just wanted to ask; what different kinds of medium do you use for drawing with? I like the stuff you seem to do in sketch pads (I may be wrong on that :/) and wondered what type of pads and pens you use? Thanx! ^_^'
Yeah, I like to use just pencil sometimes to get that raw / natural look.
Lately I draw almost exclusively digitally (with a Monoprice Tablet). Being able to manipulate my lines on a whim is definitely my style.
I was honestly never that comfortable with traditional inking. I don’t really like using brushes for comics, and I don’t like being limited to set pen sizes. My first two books (Sharknife & PENG!) were not inked, they were just pencilled really hard and adjusted in Photoshop (TRU STORY). When I DO ink traditionally though (very rare now), I use Microns.
I’m actually working on a blog post about the benefits of digital drawing vs traditional. I should finish that sooooooon
mfhstudios asked: whats your advice for making comics?
For starting out, the best advice I know of (besides drawing, practicing, sticking to it) is starting small. Don’t jump into comics thinking you’re gonna make a 600 page epic right off the bat. Try doing short stories first! 1-10 page deals will help you improve.
wookieewithabeard asked: Hey Corey are you going to be at SDCC this year?
Not this year sadly. Hopefully next year + I’ll have new books.
