  Yet another A* webcomic! + A sketch.Sep 02, 2014 12:58 AM PDT | url
Added 1 new A* page:It came to my attention today from a Marvel Comics artist Chris Samnee tumblr post that his fellow comic artist Dustin Weaver has a new webcomic called Sagittarius A*! The more galactic core comics, the better, I say. Soon we will reach critical mass... >_> ; D
Here's a watercolor & pen sketch I sent off last month to a reader as the reward for their support of *this* webcomic through the A* Patreon campaign in the month of July, which I really really appreciate because Patreon is like my one actual stable income source as I make this here comic. Whew! Oh right, here's the sketch:
One bit of art supply trivia that I found interesting here was that the marker I used for the big black areas, a waterproof Faber-Castell "big brush" artist series marker, really soaked in to the watercolor paper heavily and make this surprisingly rich black—compare how it looks in this photo to how it looked on lighter drawing paper in the sketch I posted on Friday. Pretty neat! (Also notice how I again arranged the drawing so that the thin lines only have to be fairly short and straight, to hide my inability to make nice long curved ones with the smaller marker. ; ) And the pens (the thin one is a Rotring Tikky Graphic 0.1, also waterproof) stood up just fine to being watercolored over, which was nice.
