I'm just putting this here to let you know that a new sketchgroup I'm part of, called Brand New Nostalgia, is kicking off today, with the inaugural theme being "ROCK". This is my entry for this week.

Go check out the stuff the other crazy talented guys are doing with the theme on tumblr [link] and here on dA [link] .

This is cool, has kind of an anime look to it, makes me think of the artwork of Cowboy Bebop

Here's a recent pic of the tools I'm using: [link] .

For most of my comics I'll use Microns and a brush.

Thanks! So, microns? I would have guessed crow quill :P I asked cause I love how your drawings have a lot of texture, but it doesn't come as typical comicbook hatching; and I think the controlled line weight has a lot to do with that look.

Yeah, early on I tried emulating the look of the nib with the markers, and I think it's become part of my line now.
Learning how to use an actual nib (and a brush) helped me realize how to use the micron to get an interesting line though. Up until that time, my lines were completely flat and forced -- because I was leaning too hard on the pen.

Awesome! I just know that deviantART can seem like an open forum to critique artists and I know that some people don't appreciate that.

What your going for you're hitting on the mark! Keep it up! Hope to see another book from you soon!
