  1. Back again. This time it is some artwork for a drawing competition at the school I work at.

    As usual, you can check it out below. But it would be really decent of you if you followed this link over to my website to read all about it, and see some close-up details, too.

    (Sorry guys, I accidentally posted a low-res version of the image, but can't seem to remove it. I'll just make it really, really small)





  2. (Note- I've received some assistance on this already from other avenues, but the matter is urgent as they need to have the design in for t-shirt printing by the end of the month, so I am imploring our good MWF community for further assistance)

    I am designing a 80's mecha manga-style t-shirt for a friend who runs a video series called Live! from The Rock Room, where bands come play in his home studio. I was curious what the best way to write that in Japanese (kanji, hirigana, or both)?

    Live! (as in a live concert)
    from (as in transmitting from a location)
    The Rock (rock as in 'rock and roll')
    Room (uhhh... like a room)
    If it helps the last part can either be Rock Room (two words), or Rockroom (one word).

    I've run it through Google Translate (I know, I know) and come up with several different options based on how I separate the words, and even whether or not certain words (The Rock Room) are capitalized). I am also worried that "Rock" may be translated incorrectly:


    (with capitals)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    The video below is of a band playing there, and my friend who runs this web series is also the one on drums (just to give you a feel for what is going on). I drew this band's first t-shirt 25 years ago, so it is kind of a big thing for us to be collaborating again, even though THIS t-shirt design isn't the one for the band itself (that is a different design I am working on at the same time).
  3. Curious if there are a lot of add-ons for CSP EX? I tried the demo and the extras like halftones, speed/motion lines, word balloons seem to be quite sparse, and I see that Smith Micro also advertizes a bunch of add-on packs for sale when you look at EX. I don't want to buy a stripped down product and then have to pay more for these extras just to make it viable. Especially since I've spent good money on many of Kyle Webster's excellent brush packs for PS.

  4. Hello guys, I have a quick question! Clip Paint Studio EX (formerly Manga Studio) is on sale for cheap now, and I am torn whether or not to get it for my digital art / comic needs. So I was looking for advice.

    For Photoshop CS6 I have a bunch of the Kyle Webster brush packs which help a lot, and I don't do digital inking, only coloring, ziptones/halftones, and text. I was curious if the extra features and streamlining in CSP EX are worth the cost and effort of learning a new program? I'm particularly curious about the halftone tools are better, and if features like speedlines and other such things are available and easy to use?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Just finished a new one, an SD version of my favorite mecha, Cruise Chaser Blassty. You can see a pic below but, as always, clicking this link helps me and my site stats.

    The purple background is just to help the eye differentiate between the mecha and the background (as Blassty has a lot of white).

    I'm also going to run a social media contest on Facebook starting later today, and will post the link once it is going.
