The Girl who Played with Fire by Ielle77 The Girl who Played with Fire by Ielle77
Pic i did tonight for the upcoming Comic Con. I want to make a banner for myself and i think i'm going to go with this image. I really like the WIP look i gave it (which those are the actual blue lines from my crappy crayola colored pencil. My scanner makes them look weird).

let me tell ya, I am LOVING what manga studio can do for my work, and yet I still feeling guilty when i take my original sketch, move it about in photoshop (to get the angle right, if my arm is off or something) then redraw ontop of my sketch in manga studio. I guess i should say that if i feel guilty using it, i shouldn't use it... but dammit, the images turn out so nice!!

Oh, as for this image the character isn't anyone in particular. I gave her a Lisbeth Salander (girl with the dragon tattoo) haircut and Liz's fire from hellboy, but other than that she's just some naked chick. lol. I kind of like her though, perhaps i'll write something up staring her :)

Its simple but I like it :)

Even when you do fine art you use layers and stages of work. Just because its on a computer doesn't make it any different. Its just less work then lightboxing or redrawing things.

true, i often forget about light boxes (and have often wanted one lol). Although light boxes don't make your lines smoother, like manga studio can.

Its possible to turn that off although I wouldn't recommend it. I have Pen Weight at "10" and correction at 1.0 on mine. Curves get very rough if its not on.

Real paper has a much higher resolution and its easier to see yourself making a mark and react to it. Its easier to make a curve.

I'm sure inking with brushes and nib pens takes more practice then a computer tablet but it still takes long periods of practice either way.
