...inking is a bit of a chore. Especially when you're actually happy with how the sketch looks. Your brain keeps thinking, "no, don't touch it! We'll only mess things up!" Of course, thanks to the whole working digital thing, this won't happen - sketch on one layer, inks on another - but I've done enough stuff in traditional media that the fear is still there.
Heck, after staring at the screen for a few hours, moving the stylus back and forth, I swear I can smell the scent of physical ink. The mind plays odd tricks on you at times.
Still, page eighteen is due for the Supporters by midnight this evening. Which means, it's time to cram the fear into a box and get to work. The box is starting to get pretty full - so many fears I'm trying to store away lately. Hmm... I wonder if they have a recycling program for innermost fears.
You know, with a bit of work, that could make a good premise for a comic... No, I do not need another comic idea right now. Maybe later.
For now, I need to get started. I'll leave you with "Glory Seeker" by The Immediate. This is the kind of frantic power I had in mind when sketching this chase scene. I don't think I pulled it off, but it was worth a shot.
Enjoy. I'm off to do horrible things digitally to mice and dogs on horses.
