Flexing Muscles

Drawing linework and hands, oft the twin banes of my artistic urge!

Typically, the sensitivity of the small tablets I've had translate into very shaky lines unless I do very quick strokes. The penalty for that is, of course, inaccuracy and constant trial and error.

But for the past couple months I've developed the habit of zooming in when doing the final linework, and it's really helped me avoid the frustrating process of quick stroke->ctrl-z>quick stroke>ctrl-z>quick stroke (repeat ad nauseam until satisfied or sick of it all), since the bigger the pixels, the less impact the tiny unintentional handshakes have.

Another alternative is to be less anal about every single line and go for a more "sketchy" look, but I tend to slip back into the old habit of always cleaning up more than perhaps necessary. The comic "On the Art of Motivation" and a number of /d/rawthread requests I did were attempts on my part to fight that habit.

  2. Hey, I'm a big fan. I don't want to be one who bothers you or asks a dumb question but I was just wondering if you do commissions. I'd just really love to pay for a special piece of your artwork, anyways I hope I didn't annoy you, you can e-mail me here: mahusername201@gmail.com for any questions/answers. Thanks!

    1. Comments are not a bother :)

      I am not doing commissions anymore though.

  3. Is there a complete archive of your work somewhere. Old and newer comics pieces? You mentioned "On the Art of Motivation". It doesn't seem to be on this blog. Is it on your patreon?

    1. That comic is available here:
      http://g.e-hentai.org/g/707461/7840e5fecc/

      It's about a futa teacher trying to find the right way to reward her male students' good grades.

      Chapters 1-4 of Temple of the Morning Wood and some other comics are also on that site.

    2. You know, I've always wondered what the inspiration was for that comic... and if you'd ever consider a sequel.

    3. I might try a sequel at some point, but I don't have any ideas for it yet.

  4. I really adore your art. "Reciprocal Corroboration" is a masterpiece of a porn comic short, hot but sweet and kind, and "Temple" is just so weirdly out there. They're great works.

  5. I'm not so much making a request, so much as I'm putting forth an idea that I'd love to see be done.

    I've come across a futa pic of yours of Asuna and Negi from Negima, and that one's honestly one of my favorite single pics. I'd like to put forth the idea of doing more futanari pics for Negima ^^
