Comic description

A group of misfit monsters are sentenced to live under the same roof--a castle belonging to mad scientist, who is serving his own sentence for unethical experiments. The real question is, can a hodgepodge group of monsters live under the same roof? (Some comedy, horror, and a little bit of everything else.)

You're welcome! I never really used Adobe Illustrator, but I have fiddled with it in the past. I only recently started using Vector layers/tools in Clip Studio Paint when it comes to inking, and it has made editing and correcting linework much easier. Before this, I used Raster layers for inks, which made resizing a mess. Never again will I use Raster for linework. (I've been spoiled by Vector!)

I'm still learning Clip Studio Paint. What makes it a difficult process is the last digitally produced comic I made was on Adobe Illustrator 5, on a Mac LC II. Gone are the days when 20MB of RAM and a 16Mhz processor doing the job. I'm using a Lenovo clone of the Surface, so drawing is a bit more natural, but maybe it's age but I'm struggling. However, your link to the Anime tools is a GODSEND. I don't know of I'd call them Anime myself, but the configuration is fantastic, helping my linework immediately. Thank you!

I decided to challenge myself for the final part of Bo's flashback: no gradients, textures, airbrushes, or blur tools. I limited myself to three of my basic inking tools. If you have Clip Studio Paint, I used the Turnip Pen for the inks and the G-Pen for shading. The 3rd pen was an Anime Pen I picked up from here. I did use one "cheat" method (layer Border Effect) for the ceiling and some of the bed rails, but this was before I decided to do this coloring challenge. A great thing about it, I completed the page in two days, and I'm about 95% finished with next week's page.

This here is Oliver, Jasmine's younger brother. He's the one responsible for all of the Z.A.'s residents. Another side note, the young man on the left in the first panel is Oliver's son (who we first saw on Page 54.) Final side note, someone else smokes black cigarettes. (Wow, that's some wonky, early art.)

I set a small challenge for myself in the pages to follow: no gradients, textures, airbrushes, or blur tools. I'll be using three of my basic inking tools, and will try my hardest to stick to the rules. Right now, next week's page is already finished. :D The challenge actually sped up my process.

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard my plan of adding an epilogue to this chapter. It was a scene planned for later on in the comic, but I felt better nestling it in between Chapter 6 and 7.
