So, listen. I’m going to draw comics. Somehow. Graphic storytelling is the future. For a long time, I thought I could find artists to illustrate my stories. I’ve long had the entire script for an X-rated speculative fiction BDSM graphic novel in my head. It would be very serious, and very sexy. If you’re into that sort of thing. I don’t know if I’ll ever have the ability to draw what I can see, but I’m going to draw something.
When I got the Wacom Intuos, this is the very first thing I drew, just to assure myself that drawing a comic page was not beyond my ability. And I’ve actually gotten better at digital drawing since then. I think it makes sense to sketch things on paper first, though. It’s easier to see the big picture that way, and, as another artist pointed out (wish I could remember who for the shout out) if you don’t do hard copies, you can’t sell originals.
