Well the year and my long vacation are almost at an end. Made a lot of progress in my personal projects. The new year will have me juggling two graphic novels and a collaborative project. The first will start in January and is called "Outside the Lines" running twice a week Mondays and Fridays. I am in the process of making a video journal to elaborate on what the project is and plans for the year.
Having been off for about 6 weeks I also had the chance to really dig into longer warmup sessions and trying different tools. This included opening up and trying out Manga Studio which I bought about 3 years ago. So far I am really liking what it can do and I am very tempted to upgrade to v4 after seeing videos on what was changed.
Speaking of videos I have started playing with a rig over my desk and recording my sketch sessions. There are a few videos already up on my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/idolshepherd
I am still working on a format for these so any suggestions are welcome. Right now I am looking into options for commentary, both audio and graphical. Like the webcomic I plan on posting at least two of these a week. The video journal will be posted on a different channel under my studio name www.roguescholarcomics.com
An idea that is also getting kicked around is to podcast my ramblings on drawing and maybe even comics in general. I would squeeze these recordings in while I draw then somewhere down the road offer discussions via live sessions on Ustream.
Thanks for reading, watching and commenting !
