Tre nifty.

You sir, you do good work. Even if I had the time to put into it like these must have taken, I still wouldn't come near it for pure lack of comparable talent. <P>Keep up the good work. I can't wait to see more. <P>By the way, I'm wondering what materials you're using... it looks like the inking is done in marker, but I'm wondering what kind, as my results with both ink and tips haven't resulted in good scans...<P>Which brings up another question... How large are you producing these things, pre and post scan? <P>I'm sorry if I present annoying questions, but I've been having some trouble, and I figure learning from asking is better than hours on hours of trial and error. <P>Thanks for entertaining us. =)<P>Jay aka Mac

I use technical pens too, but on cartridge paper. Mind I can't draw to save my life but at least I know what a bastard tec pens are to use. Tell me if you've have that a tec pen run out of ink coz I never had. The damn nib always gives out first, and some keep getting blocked if you leave them more the five minutes so you're forever sribbling with the shits to unblock it. GRRR! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/mad.gif"><P>Al<P>------------------

Yeah... Most times I have to replace the things about every three weeks because of the @#$%ing things jamming up on me... but that's still longer then a brush would last me. <P>------------------

Um... wow! A real post? Are you sure you didn't click the wrong link? heh. Thanks for the compliment. I use a rapidograph technical pen (because for some godforsaken reason I can't just use a micron pen like every other web cartoonist) on bristol board. The strips are about 8 and 1/4 inches wide by 10 and 1/2 inches tall, I then scan them into Photoshop at 300 res and touch them up, (and starting with next week's strips I also letter them in it as well) then I drop them down to 72 resolution and 450 by something pixels in size.<P>------------------
