September 14th birthday art. Moustaches Are Awesome One of the characters is in a PG comic (guess which one) and the other is in a definitely not PG comic ( no doggy-woggies, rainbows or happiness there, it's just a dark story with occasional morbid gratuitous violence).

From the beginning of today was a perfect day. Good news kept coming in and I was happy. Then some slightly disappointing news came in. Then the worst new came in at the end of the day. And now I feel slightly gloomy. I drew a picture to express how I feel.

I like this expression.
And what are the particular benefits of SAI? I've heard people praise it, but only in vague terms, I don't really have a sense yet of what makes it unique.

How I draw is, first, I sketch it out, then I ink it with inking pens. I then erase the whole thing so only the pen is left.
Using Photoshop and illustrator:

1. Scan it
2. go over the inking in illustrator, making vector lines.
3. Align them all
4. Export to Photoshop so I can color in the vector lines.

In sai:

1. Scan it
2. Use bucket tool to color using original pen lines.

Ah, I see. So it produces cleaner lines, or at least is more intuitive for coloring?

I don't have the commitment to turn my inking into vector lines, I just stick with the original pen lines. I can at least excuse my laziness as an effort to preserve the character of my pens?

With your pen lines, to color them do you outline it with some tool? With sai, it's a easy as selecting the color and clicking the parts that you want to color.

If I use one of my precious few nonphoto blue pencils, I can isolate the pen and the magic wand works fine.

Otherwise, I either have to erase my pencil lines or just do a lot more work coloring, but I usually use the blue if I have any intention of cleaning up and coloring and all that.

It's made specifically for the lovely purpose of digital art. It's not worth a WHOLE lot if you don't have a tablet, though.

I sketch it, then ink it. Then scan it in to photoshop. But if I scan in black and white there are these flecks of black everywhere and the outline doesn't look very solid. So i go greyscale. Then in photoshop i use the paint daubs filter and then the photocopy filter to get the lines black and good. then I clean up the line art. Save it, then use inkscape to trace bitmap then back to photoshop to color it. I really need a tablet, that way I can sketch it and scan it and then use the tablet to outline instead..

I must say, Milo, the effects, anatomy, shading, and background you placed on that drawing make it look awesome. The eyelashes, though, I'd suggest using a smaller pen, and refined a bit more. Besides that, I like the drawing very much; it has life. :D
