(Had this sitting in my drafts for about a week… time to finish it up and push it out!)
After setting up my Wacom Graphire tablet on my laptop (copy-pasting some
xorg.conf stuff) I decided to leave it on my bed. If I leave it on, with the Gimp (graphic application) open and the tablet plugged in, I will often do a little doodle before going to sleep. So these have been done while lying down, usually in (much) less than 5 minutes.
One thing I really like about comics is the expression (often exaggerated) portrayed through the characters’ faces.
This is something I don’t really have much practice with, so I started looking at some online comics that are good at it (and that I read): Penny Arcade, Octopus Pie, Butternutsquash, C&H… (Note: xkcd is excellent but obviously doesn’t even use facial expressions.)
And this will be a good test of wordpress’ new gallery functionality combined with my hacky theme: I present, doodle gallery!!
An online comic is something I would love to do, but I would need to develop characters and story and be committed. 😮 Trying to illustrate different expressions is fun. Now accepting ideas. 🙂
