  New brush & hot feetFeb 07, 2012 12:30 AM PST | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:So apparently I have a thing for drawing women's feet--it is nice to learn such things about oneself! Huh. Anyway here are some more feet I drew over the weekend, these are for my Sunday fantasy comic The Princess and the Giant--but they're in hot lava so that's totally different and stuff, right?

Oh yeah and I got a new brush! Painting with a new brush is fun, they're so frisky and subtle! So things should be a bit sharper for a while, until I wear this one down too. Actually I read somewhere that the real thing that prevents them from forming a proper point after a while is ink getting dried up in the ferrule--the metal tube clasping the bristles onto the handle. I'm kind of tempted to try leaving the old one in some really strong soap solution overnight to see if it can get that stuff out and rejuvenate the brush, but something tells me it can't be that easy to resurrect them. Hm, well, worth a try I suppose, then at least I'll know!
 
EDIT: Ah and I forgot I'd snapped a photo of the pencil stage of today's page:

And on second thought I'm not sure I should try that strong soap bath to resurrect the old brush, since it could just as well take out the glue holding the bristles on, and then I've got no brush at all (currently it's handy for secondary stuff like white ink--which is too thick to use with a thin point anyway--or just adding water). So maybe I'd better wait until I have *two* old brushes, then try it on one of them. :P
