Here it is -- my first finished piece using Manga Studio and a Cintiq! I've always loved Bebop and Rocksteady and have thought about adding them as an available print for conventions so I thought they would be a fun first project. It took some time but I'm feeling pretty comfortable with my process and I'm proud to have this design in my collection. Now I just have to work on being faster!
I recently got a Cintiq to help improve my art flow. I've had other Wacom tablets that I loved, but felt like this would be the next big step to increase my speed and accuracy. I've also been trying to learn Manga Studio after hearing other illustrators say it's much more natural than Photoshop and better for making comics ...more on that later. Playing around with new software and hardware gave a lot to learn at once, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. This sketch of Bebop and Rocksteady was the first real mile marker toward where I want to go. Sure it's rough and loose, but I'll share the finished design soon.
