Sweet. I'd enjoy seeing a tutorial (on deviant art or wherever) on how to do stuff like this.

I prefer cool colors usually, but the color scheme of the first just looks better to me.

Mike, would you happen to have any scans of artwork before it was colored and cleaned up? I would love to see that brushwork better.

Also, what size do you work?

Flatting Tutorial: Color your comics quickly!

I wrote a short tutorial on flatting in my blog today. It makes use of a great plug-in for photoshop that I don't think enough people know about. Hopefully you'll find this helpful. It saves me a ton of time, and is a big reason why I'm able to consistently update a full-color strip (crap, now my se...

Do you have a great gag you want to do, but it will only work with a pink creature wearing a green and red hat? Well, this is your perfect opportunity. I'm excited to announce the Calamities of ...

I enjoy the extra touches of the clouds moving in the background and the texture.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite comics. There's a lot of good ones out there, but when I see a comic like this it just makes me want to start all over again at the drawing board. Plus, as an extra bonus, I appreciate the Bay Area references, being from the Bay Area myself. Keep up the gr...

Cool, thanks for the link. Yeah, it took me awhile to find 360 Digital Books. I got a LOT of print samples and did a LOT of phone calls and e-mailed a LOT of other comic creators about advice on printers. I was really determined that my book look good and be "reasonably" cheap. Here was a list I was...

Thanks a lot, Tony. Yes it does. What printing service did you use for your book? Yours is a thicker paperback, right? Yeah, I'm using 360 Digital Books instead of Ka-Blam. Since I'm charging $17.95 for the books, I wanted to make sure they were the highest quality possible and full-color. Ka-Blam ...

I'm not a freelance illustrator myself, so I don't know what to say about your troubles. But I just wanted to tell you that your artwork looks great, especially considering the freeware you used to create it!
