Tried some new techniques with this one. I really prefer the look of hand lettered over digitally lettered. But I like coloring the pages better with no Dialogue/Balloons. So I split the difference and Lettered it by hand digitally.
I also learned how to use the Balloon tool in Clip Studio EX (Formerly Manga Studio 5). I'm not prepared to move my entire production over from Photoshop to Clip Studio as I know a lot of other cartoonists have done. But I do like the balloon tool a lot.
My tardiness is not due to Freelance work this time. I'm taking a class in C++ and the class is winning, (i.e. I'm Losing, It's Beating Me, etc. ). In fact, the last three assignments have been abysmal, I'm going to have to do something I've never done for a college class: seek out tutoring. I'm not embarrassed by this, mostly I just have no Idea when I'm going to fit it into my schedule, I usually only work on assignments after the kids have been put to bed...so 8-Midnight or so. I don't imagine it will be easy to find a tutor that can help me at that time, in a convenient manner.
This past weekend I had a table at Alt Press Festival at the Salt Lake City Public Library. Things went okay, but this is the second time I've forgotten to take my cash (you know, for change) to a show. I only lost one dollar sale as a result, but no change at Comic Con could be a disaster, so I'd better remember in September.
I got to talk to a lot of people about the comic, and I gave out lots of Cards with the URL, so to all my new readers, Welcome, I hope you enjoy the comics, and feel free to comment.
