and have a little fun too.

Vancouver and Calgary Expos.

It will be a crazy two weeks for me!
I am excited for this time of the year,
lots to do, people to see and very busy.

Its like Christmas, Halloween, Summer and Disneyland
all mashed up together. It'll be a BLAST.

FDC Day 28.

Last image for the month. It got me drawing more and playing
with more of my tools, and learning a little more.
All in all, a positive challenge.

What I would do differently, next time?
Create original images  just for the challenge,
and try a few more traditional media.

Thanks for visiting.

FDC day 27.

Inspired by spray paint art, for a background,
on Manga Studio. I can't pour paint on to the surface
or make active splatters with a flick of a brush.

Still a very cool tool.

 More pages on Manga Studio.

Interesting results so far.

This is a short story in progress.

FDC Day 25.

 A couple of panels done on Manga Studio.
It is faster than traditional, pencil and ink,
but I miss that tactile warmth of paper.

FDC Day 24.

 Early attempts at Manga Studio comic panels.

Still have to find my way around all the tools.
Individual panel creation is tricky, when I'm working
from thumbnails created on paper. Lots to learn.
This will take sometime, will be watching more tutorials
on You Tube. Always cool to learn something new.

FDC Day 23.

Comic page layouts done on 8 1/2 by 11 paper.

Brush pen, images inspired by Game of Thrones,
after a nap a few hours watching a very early
hockey game.

FDC Day 22.

 A busy day on the drawing tablet.
Still working on one project, finding
it difficult to find one image concept
for my Art Book submission.

 I have tried several ideas and learn something from them.

I find myself back at an earlier attempt, 
and will see this one to the finish.

Deadlines loom...might be playing
to the last minute.

Go Canada Go!

Getting a good "feel" for the tablet and

is that a good thing? More tomorrow.
