I have been a Photoshop user for an extremely long time. I never planned on changing that, however, after hearing about Manga Studio for ages, I decided to finally give it a shot. 
Amazing. It handles a tablet about 1000x times better. This is the most fun i’ve had drawing digitally in…. well…. forever. Completely changed how i feel about working fully digitally. 
Can’t wait to do more work like this. 
ALSO: How lovely is my girlfriend?

Was inspired by this Rolling Stone article titled “Can We Fix the Race Problem in America’s School Discipline?” to do this quick editorial piece. Thanks for looking, and read the article! It’s pretty enlightening.

In light of the upcoming shows, the awesome videos of the sets at Riot Fest and elsewhere, and the announcement that they are working on new material, I’m on a Brand New kick. 
So I did this as a tribute to the one and only, Jesse Lacey. Lemme know if you like it. Thanks.

Anonymous said: What software do you use for your digital illustrations?

i finish everything in photoshop.

I draw all of the separate layers with pens, ink, brush pens, markers, etc, on tracing or computer paper. i then scan all of those pieces in and register them. next i begin coloring the layers based on a usually pre determined color pallet. sometimes i’ll end up adding a few layers of gradients or glows or other effects.
