A quick doodle

Here's a quick little thing I doodled as part of brainstorming for the aforementioned project I have in the works. When I sit there in front of a blank page, I just get the worst writers block, so I cranked this out to try and get the creative juices flowing. Anyways, halfway thru inking (I was using a brush pen I just bought since it was quicker and easier than using an actual brush and dipping it over and over), the tip of my brush pen 'split' a little and started drawing double lines... bleah. So I tried to trim it down and resharpen it with a razor blade... all I succeeded in doing was lopping off the tip of it, making it even more dull. So the small details in panel two... yeah, that's why they're all mushy. Eh... I should just stick with a real brush and ink. Also, I didn't use a ruler or anything for the panel edges... like I said, just a quick doodle. Enjoy. I'll be posting more animation school stuff real soon.

Oh, and as for the coloring job I mentioned I was going to attempt in my last post? Yeah, as predicted, I butchered it. So... scroll down and just enjoy the black and white one again. Watercolors are hard! I need more practice!

you can't even tell there was anything wrong with your brush.
I tried a brush pen for the first like, 30 pages of Sidescrollers, but it was super hard to do fine detail, so I went back to my sable. The brush pen i have is still good for travel art. your inking is getting allot better. no joke.
ps. do more comics!!!!

Thanks for the comment... yeah, the brush pen was good for practice, but I guess I can't rely on shortcuts... I'll just stick to the brush. More comics to come!
