05:45 pm - jobnik 9 is go!
i know, waaaay seriously long time. popping my head up to say that a new issue of jobnik is scheduled to come out in time for san diego, & to prove it/hold me to my word,

jobnik issue 9, page 3


also, if anyone wants to hear more from me (slightly more), i am now on twitter, @realgonegirl

p.s., does anybody still use non-photo blue pencils? i like em for doing perspective, except for the fact that all scanners see the lines, thus rendering the non-photo-ness, & their utility, completely void. is there a trick to this? is there a different colour that won't show up in scans, or is easier to delete from scans?

Open Channels in Photoshop, and select either Blue or Cyan. Most of the pencil should vanish.

This also works with red pencil, although it's trickier - if you scan non-photo blue in black and white, it disappears; red reads as dark grey or black. I prefer the blue for that just-in-case reason.

Way to go Miriam! I gave up on non-photo blue for my finished work... I just do a detailed rough then trace it off with a hard lead so I have a very "clean" page to ink on. Still, I do ened up with stray lines even then it's maddening trying to get them out of the scan. I just want the photocopier back!
Waht ARE you using up there by the way? Is ist all pencil? Ink and wash? Regardless, looks great. There's such control there-- you've really got a handle on placement of pacing of dialogue... it reads naturally.. really conveys the experience. Congratulations.

i already trace my lettering & panel borders... tracing all my pencils is still a bridge too far for me, although other of my favourite artists besides you, do it (carla speed mcneil, for one).

it's all pencil, i "ink" in b-4b. just for these pages, i've started adjusting levels in photoshop to darken up my darks while keeping my midtones, on the advice of scott mccloud. before, i useta darken my darks in "variations," & it was more time-consuming & didn't work nearly so well.
