Sketchbook: First Doctor, digital doodle...

Working on a secret comic book script for the last week or so and didn't get a chance to draw much of anything. Did this quick doodle of the First Doctor in Manga Studio this morning to loosen up the drawing muscles.

Sketchbook: Ninth Doctor, digital sketch...

Another quick doodle in Manga Studio as I continue to work on getting comfortable with drawing on the computer. This time -- the Ninth Doctor, who I never got to draw in my time on IDW's DOCTOR WHO. As far as I know, this is actually the first time I've even attempted to draw him.

And speaking of characters I've never had to draw before... here's a very, very quick Manga Studio doodle of Clara from this season of WHO.

Sketchbook: Self-Portrait, digital sketch...

More playing around with drawing on the computer. Needed a doodle of myself for a FCBD book my friends Ron Marz, Paul Harding, Jennifer L. Meyer, Richard Clark and I are doing for two of our favorite shops in the area, Excellent Adventures and Comic Depot, so I did this very quickly in Manga Studio.

Sketchbook: Doctor Who, digital sketch...

If you follow me on Twitter, you may know that I've started experimenting with Manga Studio. As someone who has been making comics with pen and paper for 19 years now, the idea of drawing on the computer seems very science-fiction-y, but I'm intrigued by the possibilities.

So.. here's a quick sketch I did while working out what all the tools in Manga Studio do and just generally trying to get used to drawing with a tablet while looking at a computer screen.

And I should mention my friend Doug Hill's excellent Manga Studio tutorials, which helped me every time I hit a snag. Doug literally wrote the book on Manga Studio, and his tutorials are excellent. You can find the first of his 3-part 'webinar' on MS 5 here.

Sneak Peek: October Girl 3, cover layout...

Here's a sneak peek at a quick layout sketch of the cover for October Girl #3, which I'm wrapping up as we speak, along with issue 4 & 5. Lots more sneak peeks on the way.
